Am I an Artist?

COURSE:  ETEC 531 (Elective Course), Cultural and New Media Studies, Course Description

TYPE OF ASSIGNMENT:  Individual

TITLE:  Am I an Artist?

OBJECTIVE:  

To create an autobiographical representation of my answer to the question, “Am I an Artist?”  To create a reflection of my experiences with the convergence of art and technology in my life.

DESCRIPTION:

Although not formally evaluated, this assignment served as an opportunity to practice my media production skills in preparation for the two media productions (inNOvation & Global Culture) that I would be producing as part of the course requirements.  I used Keynote to create my slides and then imported them into iMovie to put the whole production together.  I searched RCRD LBL, a free music download service to select the soundtrack for my production.

UDL Guidelines:

Creating media productions is similar to digital storytelling in that they can be used to tell a story or represent knowledge.  Although media productions may include text, the message is supported by visuals and audio.  Students could create media productions as an alternative to writing a traditional essay or written response.  Teachers could create media productions in order to provide options for perception and comprehension.
