We had a great first class today. Here are the expectations for next class:
Create a portfolio on Digication using our class template
Questions, Curiosities, and Wonders
List ten questions on your Digication portfolio that will guide the focus of our class. Rank the questions in order of significance. 1 being the most important question and 10 being the least.
Read over the Name Story assignment- We will work on this in the next class
Names have an interesting magic. Your name is a label you carry with you through life. For the most part they’re assigned by others, by history, by chance. But each of us has a choice in how we shape our names for others.
And therein lies a story.
Many stories, actually. There’s the story of how you were named and what each part of you name signifies for yourself and your family. There’s the story of how your name has shaped you, how other people react to your name. And there’s the story of how you shaped your name to fit your life and how that may have changed as your life changed. There’s a lot of potential in just your own name.
To help us get to know each other, tell a story about your name. Keep it simple, short (250 words), but be specific and as detailed as you can. Post an image of yourself and the story of your name on the front page of our Digication portfolio. You will present your portfolio to the class next Tuesday.
