This tool is neat! I liked how it clearly mapped your points of travel by simply linking the locations. I don’t think users are able to upload pictures because the site does not require users to sign-up for the services, therefore it is a site more for convenience than making personal. Geotagging could be applicable to this map because think of the times that we take pictures on trips. “Hey, let’s take a picture by the Texas sign!” It’s almost another essential tool for documentation for life moments, geotagging is.
I chose to research non-copywrite content of blogs on wordpress.com. Take a look at this blog. Most blogs hold non-copywrite content unless it is a blog owned by a nation or global organization (Fox, CNN, etc.). Blogs may hold credible information from credible sources, though blogs are form of expression or support of that credible information. Blogs, for the most part, are free, too. WordPress.com is free to use and the website is user-friendly and allows users to set privacy settings.
Here is a photo that I took a few weeks ago for my CI 5740 Photography course. The photo holds elements of color, expression, and art. I geotagged this photo for Boone, NC.
Sea Dragon is incredible and fast-paced. I like the idea behind the application and how smoothly it works. This website appears cluttered, though is organized once you see how the photos are linked together. Not only are photos showing beauty, but where the photos are precisely taken.
I like the idea of geotagging at the discretion of the photographer. Once the photographer says its ‘ok,’ then it becomes neat for the viewer to not only view what a photo holds, but exactly where the photo was taken. That element (geotagging/location) also could play a small or large part of the picture.
The overall experience of Web 2.0 has been a positive experience. The communication between peers has been interactive and engaging, as well as diverse and interesting. The tools and applications explored were interesting and thought-provoking, and along-side fellow peers, different perspectives toward each tool or application were presented. I will use some of the applications and tools, whereas others I may not, but overall, the course was a positive and enlightening journey once I was organized. Congrats everyone on a great semester!
I ended up with 14 total videos created and uploaded. The videos are listed throughout my blog. Some are informational whereas others are more informal and fun. Also, some were created on YouTube and others were created on iMovie.
After reviewing my fellow peers’ work of tutorials on the YouTube channel, I have to say that I am impressed how everything came together! It is a job well done. Here are some thoughts about the project. I also had a friend who helped me with my projects as I made the trek of completing them each day.
The fun project involves starting, exploring, utilizing, and building a Flickr account. The reason behind this was because I am also in CI 5740-Introduction to Photography and thought, “What better reason than to compile my photos I’ve taken over the past semester, display and organize each in a cohesive manner, and allow the public to view and comment for unbiased feedback. This tool is very user-friendly, allowing consumers to load, add information, tag, organize, add to a set or gallery, or “favorite” pretty much any photo on Flickr. My photostream is under “Attribution-NonCommerical-NoDervis Creative Commons” security settings. What that means, is what each photo is uploaded, another consumer of Flickr must give credit to the original creator of the image, may not use the image commercially, or may not transform the image in way, shape, or form.
The in-depth project involves the topics of Couch Surfing and tying the social media network to the purposes and principles of Media Literacy. With an emerging and growing social media network on society’s hands, I wanted to see the correlations between the network and Media Literacy. I decided to also take a step further outside of my comfort zone and use the presentational tool, Prezi. This tool was tough at times, but overall I really like how my presentation of information, statistics, videos, and correlations flow. I think this tool may be useful to some of you guys. Let me know your thoughts.
I hope you guys enjoy viewing the two projects! As always, feedback is welcome. Thanks for a great semester and all the help that was given. We work collaboratively and well together.
I found the Edmodo tutorial to be similar to AsULearn, only simpler. I would be eager to explore this if I were hired as a teacher at a community college or small four-year college. The audio of this tutorial was a little spotty at times, though overall I think the listener could follow. Thanks for a great semester of thoughtful feedback, Sheena!
