• Puppies!

    I saw this assignment (2 stars) and knew I had to do it! I do not have a dog but have always wanted one. I started by googling pictures of cute dogs and picked my favorites which was so hard. I chose my favorites and then added them to iMovie. I wanted to find a background noise, so I looked on freesound.org and found the acoustic guitar music. I thought it would make a nice background sound and being calming while looking at the puppies. I really like how it turned out and think that it can make anyone happy!   Until next time, Emily

  • Relax

    For this assignment (3.5 stars), I created a video of ocean waves. I started by finding the ocean waves on freesound.org. I also found a person saying relax that I thought would tie into the assignment. I used audacity to add the two audios and then exported them and added them to iMovie. I found two sunset pictures of the ocean and decided to alternate the two with the audio. I downloaded the movie and uploaded it to youtube. I really enjoyed this project. Sometimes when I am stressed I will listen to relaxing music and now I can use my own. Until next time, Emily

  • A Few of My Favorite Assignments

    For this assignment (3.5 stars), I put together a video of my favorite assignments I have created so far. I went through all of my old posts and tweets and picked my favorites. I decided to overlay my picture assignments with my audio assignments. I liked the idea of this because it allowed for the audio to have visual. I really liked getting to look through all of my old work and seeing how much I have done in this class! I downloaded all me media from my blog and took screenshots of my tweets. I used iMovie to create the video and put everything together. I then uploaded it…

  • Where I Want to Go

    For this assignment (4 stars), I created a video of two cities in Spain I want to visit, Barcelona and Spain. I have always wanted to visit Spain and these pictures make me want to even more! I googled pictures for both the cities and then uploaded them to iMovie. I then found music on freesound.org to play with the pictures. I found the two intro pictures to introduce each city and separate the pictures of each. I then uploaded the video to youtube. I loved getting to explore the cities through google images and hope to one day visit the cities. This was one of my first times using…

  • My Dream Schedule

    For the Story Within a Story assignment, I decided to make my dream class schedule. I downloaded Google X-Ray and then searched for various ideas and then realized canvas would be fun to try. It is an easy website and did not have too many features. I thought about classes that I would love to take and chose a few of them. I then edited the classes and put my new classes in. I chose intro to cooking, animal lovers, intro to travel, and nap taking. I also had to change all of my assignments to represent my new classes. I definitely wish I could take these classes instead of…

  • GIF Story

    For this assignment (3 stars), I decided to create a GIF story based on a fairytale. I found the GIFs using GIPHY and placed them into my post. I thought about the story and then searched for the various ideas.             I chose the fairytale Goldilocks and the three bears. It was harder than I thought to find GIFs representing each of the stories events. I think the GIFs I found represent the story well but don’t give it away too easily. This was a great way to show online storytelling. Until next time, Emily

  • Dream Vacation

    For this assignment (3.5 stars), I got to plan my dream vacation on Pinterest. I immediately knew that I would love to go on a vacation all over Europe. I would love to spend over a month or so being able to travel to various cities. A few of the cities I would like to see would be Venice, Rome, Florence, Dublin, Madrid, Barcelona, and so much more. I would like to also go to London and Paris again. I think this would be an amazing trip full of lots of amazing experiences. My board has a variety of the places and sites I would want to see. It also…

  • Pinterest Room

    I thought this assignment (4.5) was a lot of fun and made me want to redo my room! I started by creating a Pinterest account for the class. I then created a board specifically for my room ideas. I searched for ideas involving comfy and elegant rooms. I also searched for various designs of wallpaper. I think accent walls of either a different color or wallpaper are super pretty. I found several pictures with really pretty chandeliers and thought they added sophistication and were something unique. I really liked the neutral color scheme with pops of pinks and blues. For fun, I added some extravegant rooms right on the beach and ones…

  • Listening to the Radio Show

    I listened to the Super Storytellers radio show. I really enjoyed listening to everyone’s ideas! The commercials were my favorite part! They were super creative and unique and all tied in well to the stories. Everyone had great tone and sounded super professional. I also liked that the voices were made different from each other. They were different enough from each other without sounding too odd. I think some of the audio varied in noise level between each segment, but I know how hard that is make all the same level. Overall, I really enjoyed listening to the creative ideas and think they did a great job! Here are some…

  • Radio Show Progress Week 2

    This week was kind of odd because we didn’t have a lot of assignments to do. My group was great and communicated through slack. We all added our commercials, bumpers, and stories to the feed. If any of us had any questions we were able to answer them through the slack, so it was super easy. I wrote my story and then recorded it and added in all of the sound effects. Audacity was being a pain, so it took me awhile to finish it. I then uploaded it to soundcloud and added it to slack. Maddie was super awesome and combined everyone’s work to create the show.   Here…
