For my blogging I will be showing stop gun violence pictures also I will be showing different types of colors, shapes for the pictures for stopping gun violence. Also I will show a context of stopping gun violence around the world for the youth, adults so I can let people know I’m creating an change for our life everyday.
Signing up for the reclaim hosting finding a perfect name to come up with was very easy for me, because I knew what I wanted to talk about throughout my experience going through all of the steps was good for me to create my website. This website mainly going to be talking about more of stopping gun violence in a positive way to create change around the whole world, because guns need to stop today.
The reason why I chose this domain name is, because this name means a lot to me a lot of young black men is getting killed from gun violence for no reason is getting out of hand. I really chose this domain name is, because I lost two of my friends from gun violence one was 17 the other one was 15 that was a struggle for me losing my two friends at a early age. I will create change for the youth that’s coming up after me so they won’t have to experience violence while their outside playing in the parks, and going to school.
The last 7.5 weeks was very well learning something new every week for this class it open my eyes during this class, and outside of school as well. Also I learned a lot from this class this class is very amazing, fun in my eyes. This class will help me outside of school for my life for a job also help me to run my own business down the line ,and just being a human being in life moving forward.
I think I’m doing alright in CT101. Honestly, it’s been hard for me to stay on top of all the assignments, I’m not the most tech-savvy.
Because of CT101 I’ve learned about many internet tools such as daily create or Giphy. Ones that I can use out of class even. Before taking this class I didn’t have many things I could use for designing and helping me with my brand. But now I know about photopea and so many more.
I Honestly think right now I deserve like a C because I didn’t really turn in my assignments on time and I also haven’t been complimenting on my classmates’ posts and I need to take accountability for what I haven’t been doing.
As for my creativity expanding I can’t speak on it because I just did my assignments. The only one Im missing is Assignment 6 now. I also can’t really list my other assignments because I just did them.
But now that I know how fun and easy they are I will be better prepared if we have another assignment like this.
I also don’t really participate much in class because we don’t really have that many kids that come to class and most people say what I have wanted to say.
But from now on in order to improve my grade I will keep up with my assignments by making reminders for them. So that I can actually see improvements in my work and not have to wait until the last minute.
Assignment 5-digital storytelling projects
The first assignment I chose was one that came from the DS106 assignment bank I picked this specific one because I do have a clothing brand and wanted to pick an assignment that had something to do with design.
Step one- I went to Canva which gives you access to many different templates and lets you be creative in the things you’ll create
Assignment 4 – Passions
Are memes art?
I think memes are art. And some are more straight forward like this one is telling a story many others agree that memes are an art form as well.
There are many different kinds of memes created with so many different aspects even according to google memes could be included as a form of art because it shows human creativity and its the production of something that people appreciate because it helps them show communicate many different things.
Making out first Gif’s
I think Gifs will go far because they are another form of communicating with different kinds of people.
In addition to that if you can show that you’re feeling an emotion through a Gif they are most definitely capable of telling a story.
What makes a compelling, successful, and engaging blog post is being simple and not writing too much. I say that because people’s attention spans are pretty short.
Looking back I didn’t hit many of the blogging points because I definitely wasn’t proofreading or checking that I was being thoughtful.
The first day of CT101 wasn’t what i expected it to be. My other classes were syllabus-heavy and homework heavy and this class wasn’t anything like that which is good.
And it gives me more space to be creative when I do my homework by expressing my feelings through images and videos of my choosing.
I also think learning new things will help me when it comes to my brand and learning internet tools I could use to enhance it.
Assignment 1-internet happy
Something on the internet that makes me happy is basketball highlights. I’m a big fan of basketball so being able to have access to even watch full games back from youtube or even see so much basketball content from Instagram, is something that makes me happy.
There are many videos so it’s hard to even get bored and that’s something that makes me happy because I could even apply some things to my own playing.
I feel like when it comes down to this meaning people in this world today will know something about somebody , and you will never know. People will always know someone, and talk about the person to another person that they know, and will tell the person everything that they know about the person, and that person will never fund out to later on in life.
Watching this video it brings a lot of excitement, and a lot of energy seeing the characters interact with one another was very amazing to watch they were so focus of what they were doing.
