This is how I would feel when someone tells me a funny joke about my mom for instance in a text message or on a social media exchange. In some situations instead of actually sending them back a typed text message you can actually send them an expression like this. Also, this expression is more fun and creative to be sharing with social media long with text exchange.
Reaction GIFs are a fun and unique way of expressing your feelings and how you would respond to a statement or situation. For instance,these days especially with the younger generation, people tend to drift towards reaction GIFs when they are exchanging views and even comments on various forms of social media. Reaction GIFs have definitely been giving a new outlook on social media and even regular messaging and emailing.
As a game plan for this course, I intend to do blogging, weekly reflections, perhaps a personal website and commenting/critiquing. Hopefully, I can manage all of the above. I like blogging since it allows you to give feedback about your own perspective on various topics. Commenting and critiquing allows you to correspond with your classmates through your blogs and at the same time you are giving feedback. In that approach you have a chance to inform your classmates about if they are doing the right thing on their blog and also if they are on track. In a sense it is all give and take which is helpful for students in the class.
Also, I believe that these types of assignments were given as a choice, since students would be able to explore their options and do what they find most appealing. I intend to complete these assignments at a fast pace. I have considered the possibility of not receiving full point value for each assignment. By creating your own game plan, students have the opportunity to work at their own pace, and create posts and be creative in their own ways. They are able to share and express their views, comments and creativity on their own blog or website.
I would say that I am fairly new to digital story-telling tools even though I am a journalism major, and shooting photos and editing is quite fresh for me. However, I do engage in taking a number of photos for articles and stories that I work on, but when it comes to editing I cease to take an attempt in improving the quality of my photo shots. But as of recently, I’ve tried cropping pictures and improving the brightness, and the coloring, and I still remain a little weak in that area of photo editing. I’ve used some features on my nokia windows phone to do a little editing. However, I would like to learn to use Photoshop and other advance programs. This is a picture that I recently took and shared with social media.
I’m not much of a fanatic when it comes to taking photos as some people are. However, when I do take a photo, in most cases it is because it actually means something to me. I am someone who happens to love red wine. So one Friday evening I was having my usual movie night by myself and I was also relaxing with a glass of red wine, so I figured that was a Kodak moment and i needed to capture the moment. Thus, my bottle of red wine and my wine glass was quite sentimental to me.
