Finishing up this Week

On Thursday, 3/22, we’ll be dealing with two activities:

  • Finishing up presentations for the digital identity project (William and Lean)
  • Finishing up Tuesday night’s field exercise.

Next Week’s Class Activities & Preparation

Next week, William will be leading a discussion about “Virtual Crime” on Tuesday and Kirsten will be leading an investigation of YouTube on Thursday. Here’s what you need to do to prepare for these two classes:

Virtual Crime Readings/Resources:

Make sure you post your reactions to the readings on your blog!!

YouTube Preparation (Before class on Thursday, 3/29)

YouTube Exploration (After Class on Thursday, 3/29)

Upload a video of yourself wearing a shirt in your favorite color. Answer the following questions in your video:

  1. What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
  2. If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?
  3. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
  4. Where in the world would you like to travel?

Set the video to your favorite song in the background.

When you upload it, explore the privacy/copyright settings (the copyright implications with the music you chose, whether you need to identify the song in the background, and whether you want to make the video public, private, etc.)

Embed your completed video on your blog and share your experiences with making it and putting it on YouTube.

Other Stuff


Next week is Week Ten of the semester, so I’ll be doing another grading pass. If you’ve done topic/technology explorations so far, you’ll receive your grade on those. I’ll also be grading everyone’s digital identity projects and grading your second round of participation and blogging. All grades will be posted in Canvas by next Friday afternoon (3/30)

Digital Community Projects

You need to be started on your community projects and should be blogging an update about this project at least once a week. If you have any questions or concerns about the project, please talk to me about it ASAP.

In addition, I’ve updated the community project assignment page with details about the final project.
