I was tagged for this game by +Charlene Doland to Take 5 and Tag 5. Take 5 minutes to complete the #survey and tag 5 others to do the same. I tag +Mary Ellen Banfield, +Fred Mindlin, +Scott Glass, +Janet Chow, +Amy Cody Clancy. There, that was fun!

I'll just let this speak for itself and see what it says to you. Glad I could find some wifi to join in!
Created with Haiku Deck, free presentation software that’s simple, beautiful, and fun.

I hadn't thought of it quite that way. It's what we filter out that speaks -- maybe kind of like the negative parts of a visual. Interesting how art can have so many layers of meaning, and you have expressed yours most poetically! Thank you, Terry.

These events have actually occurred, or are occurring, in the province of British Columbia, Canada.

Advocacy is so important, no matter where we live and teach.

“Why do I participate in this MOOC?” I ask myself. … Because I'm challenged to learn by making, largely using digital media. I connect and collaborate with passionate educators & learners who I...

Yes, you're so right Terry! Writing is embedded in learning, and learning is embedded in writing. Brilliant! Thank you.

2013 MC5: Credos  - 
 
Having collected some of the ideas I'd been tossing around in my mind into Evernote, I decided to stay within the making spirit of #clmooc by using Haiku Deck. I was struck by how the use of this medium impacted the quality and flavour of the ideas. Decisions on the use of images, typeface, emphasis, and colour suddenly played large in the message. A wonderfully enjoyable editing experience!
Of course, this credo is by no means fixed, and for this reason, I am somewhat hesitant to "seal" the ideas into a Haiku deck. Perhaps I could still try a more remixable format, but I did have fun working with the layers of meaning in this Make.

I have seen Haiku Deck a few times in this MOOC and this is the first I've viewed- beautiful thoughts and images. I wish they had it for PC.

2013 MC4: Map Making  - 
 
These drawings were done by my grade 6/7 students this past school year. They were asked to visualize and draw the Internet as an actual place. And, yes, I hacked the idea from a graphic on Reddit! http://imgur.com/AK38c

2014 MC #4 "Hack your Writing"  - 
 
Hello #clmoocers,
I've just managed to post this iMovie as a response to the "Concept in 60" activity -- except mine turned out to be 143 (seconds). Hope you will indulge me. I'm out in the Gulf Islands, usually without wifi. All done on an iPad, slides made in "Explain Everything." Thanks for all your thoughts & efforts. Hope to write more. :)

Exactly, +Charlene Doland. So much to learn and teach about media literacy and digital writing!

2013 MC6: Reflecting + Envisioning  - 
 
Hello #clmoocers! I've created this overview of my #clmooc experience in BigMind, a mind mapping app on my iPad, which did not require web access. Since I've had limited Internet access this summer, it's been difficult for me to use online tools such as Thimble, Popcorn and others... but will pursue these when I'm able. Again, thanks for all the making!
(Hope this image is visible)

Responding to +Kevin Hodgson 's google maps prompt and +Anna Smith 's rock hack suggestion:

I took a screen shot from google maps on iPhone, pulled it, and a photo of Galiano Island sandstone into Skitch, and voila!

Ah, I get it! Makes sense to use the spiral for timelessness!

2013 MC3: Toy Hacks  - 
 
I hacked my 1993 art school project, "The Many and the One."  With stop motion, I turned it into play, so perhaps this could make it qualify as a toy hack.

From stabile to mobile, the Harlem Globetrotter remix. I love it!
