CIWIC 2005: Getting Started

For the next two weeks, I’m up at the Computers in Writing Intensive Classrooms program at Michigan Tech. We’ve hit the ground running the last couple of days, and I already feel like I’ve learned quite a bit.

In the New Media workshop I’m in, we’ve been discussing the nature of visual arguments, and our first assignments have had us working in Photoshop and Director, two programs I was larglely unfamiliar with when I started.

Our first day’s assignment was to create a one-page visual argument using photoshop, and the second day’s assignment was to create a sequential argument using Director.

I took "e-waste" as my topic for both:

I’m now off to a picnic along Lake Superior, a much-need break from the lab.
