TRAVEL with US

A-Z Photo Collage [Remixed]: DS 106-Ersizing:  Make an alphabetically themed collage. Compile images to represent each letter of the alphabet within a chosen subject area or theme. Create a collage. (4 stars).

ReMiX cArD: “DS106-ersizing” Use this assignment to create an advertisment or a recruiting tool for ds106.

For this remix, I used an old Visual Assignment example to create my own remix!!

I used scottclower.org’s original assignment where he made a picture collage of city skylines using the alphabet A-Z. This was very cool, props to Scott!! (It made me want to travel, real bad!)

Here was the collage:

Now, for the remix part, I was to advertise our class, Digital Storytelling. I decided to use Powerpoint, so I could easily add cool text and manipulate it how I wanted to.

I added text and changed the color of the text to make it more visible! Here is my remixed assignment of this cool City Skyline, trying to get you to join DS106!!

I have never used the Remix tool so this was very cool! There were so many options and you could refresh the Remix page to try again if you didn’t like the current remixes. I tried it multiple times to see all the possible combinations.

I think this collage not only will urge you to travel, but it also is a great advertisement! I created the text to advertise DS106, and laid it on top of the original collage. Now that the semester is winding down, I have realized that the world “travel” is the only way to really describe what I have done. People ask me all the time, “What do you do in that class?” I have thought a lot about what to exactly say, and it has taken me some time. But now, I know I have traveled through the technology world, using aspects of storytelling that I discovered only as a young girl. Connection is so widely used in this class and it’s so interesting to me how it links you to different people and places around the world. This remix and the pic collage were both perfect for me to use for this assignment.
