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.
