411 / Assignment / Storytelling toys



Kristin Bull has to reschedule for Thursday.  But that’s OK, we’re resourceful, flexible and have plenty to do in the meantime.

To that end, today we’ll revisit the crowdsourcing project. My gut feeling is that we should proceed as planned, but let’s take the pulse of the responses before we make a final decision.  We’ll also talk about the news and the quiz on Thursday (yes, we’ll take it at the beginning of class, so be on time or you’ll be out of luck). We’ll finish up with Storify. You’ll be creating your first project and sharing it on your website via post. Here’s a link to an example.

On Thursday, the timed quiz will commence promptly at 3 p.m. and close at 3:25. Then we’ll talk with Kristin. Your blog post about her visit will be due before class Tuesday. Remember, to write in blog-style, use hyperlinks, short paragraphs and be hyper-focused.

The last word: Begin reading “Hatching Twitter.” We’re going to be discussing the first week after break. Also, it’s time to move into unit 2. So begin reading chapters 4 and 5 in Briggs.
