So Far in Digital Perspectives…
For the past two weeks in Digital Perspectives, we have been working on creating a logo for a celebrity client, by firstly researching about them, and then using that information to create a logo. My logo wasn’t entirely complete because I wanted to add more, but I was happy with the way it looked by the end of the time we had.
Here is a screencast of the making of my logo.
Sometimes I find it hard to get things done quickly, but taking a few minutes to manage my time beforehand can really be helpful. I feel that sticking to a schedule is always really helpful. However, it is very possible to get too worked up in sticking to specific times, and not do my work to the best of my ability. I think it’s important to strike a balance between the two.
Today in class, we looked at potential topics that could interest a 9th grader, and we made a list of them on post-it notes and wrote why. Here are my post-it notes.
Digital Dragons Day
In the future, our school may have an event called Digital Dragon Day, where on a specific day (sometime next year!) students in all UWCs around the world will come today and post blog posts about our chosen topic. Our idea for a topic was combating social injustice. Especially in light of recent issues, we feel that this is definitely a cause that people feel strongly about and will be passionate to make a difference. We also feel that it is crucial to make people aware f what is happening today in the world in terms of social injustice, what we can do to help, and how if we look closely enough, we may even be able to see it in our on communities. By having everyone post about this issue on one day, together as a team and as a community, we can make sure our voice is heard, and we create change in this world.
Here are a few links that can help us with our research:
We believe that blog posts are a great idea because they are a great medium for people to voice their opinion and thoughts, without feeling constrained or restricted. Also, when it’s out on the internet, it’s there for anyone to see, which could be a great thing when it comes to spreading the message!
