This week we took a couple days to watch all of the "This I Believe" videos. I really enjoyed seeing what all of my classmates took to heart and it was very interesting seeing what they came up with in terms of video and pictures. Some surprised me because I did not know the way some people felt about certain projects. It was great to watch them all and hear voices from people I don't normally talk to. It was even fun showing my own video in order to show others what I thought was important to share. I really enjoyed this assignment because I was able to use my video-making skills that I have learned through digital media and voice my opinions about breaking stereotypes in society.
After we finished all of the videos we did an intro to the last project we would complete this trimester. From the two books we read over the 12 week period, we were starting to go about creating our Pecha Kucha presentations. We watched a video in preparation on how to create effective slides for an audience. If I am being totally honest, I did not think that the slides in this presentation were very effective at all. I know it is supposed to be informational but the whole thing was boring and her tips on moving pictures to the side with text over white space were horrible. I thought she would be outstanding with her slides because she most likely does this very often.
