This began as handwritten prose. Because the piece was too autobiographical to comfortably publish, I turned it into a word cloud (also published in reMEDIAting). Following +Sheri Edwards'' suggestion, I turned it into a poem, and used good ole iMovie. So yes, I think I've reMEDIATed.
Oh +Susan Angel that is touching! An amazing honoring of the First Nations peoples and the beginning of a stance to stop what will be another horrible injustice to the people and their world. It surely adds to the work you've already done!
This is a combination of an untro and choosing an object that represents me. I chose a whisk, because I use it often in the kitchen. Cooking is a good metaphor for creating, and for that matter, teaching -- a splash of this, a dash of that. I had my students draft some thoughts about learning, and then combined a sample of this with the whisking, using the Green Screen app.
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.
I hand wrote a story about the tar sands oil pipelines that threaten our BC coasts and forests, and the inspiration that I have taken from First Nations, symbolized by the eagle feather. I was pretty happy with what I'd written, but it turned out to be quite autobiographical and personal. After I typed it (another mediation?) I decided to put the 446 word piece into a word cloud... so here it is. I might be convinced to publish the piece,or perhaps this will take another form.... but for now, here it is:
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. :)
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)
