I don’t even remember how I came across ds106 for the first time… but it has been a great place to drop in and participate once in a while!
Winter 2011: I started to think about the web as a place to exchange ideas and be creative rather than just consumption and played around with WordPress, drawing apps and After Effects.
Summer 2012: Being off for the summer, I managed to complete much more of Magic MacGuffin (though rarely by the due dates), fooled around with Audacity, really learned iMovie and started to link the tools I was using and provocations in the ds106 assignments to what I was teaching. Too bad the Minecraft experiment didn’t work out…
Fall 2013: At some point I felt the need to be a little creative so I dropped in to see what was happening over at ds106. Prep for the radio shows was just getting started so I signed up and helped create a radio show with the Merry Hacksters and got a bit of a handle on Garageband.
Spring 2014: I’m now looking forward to seeing how this new round of ds106 develops and linking it to a project or two at work. Here’s to finally completing the photo and/ or design portion weeks!
