Asssignment #3 Short Story Mind Map
In this project were were given a selection of short stories to read. We needed to choose one of these stories and create a mind map by hand or digitally. I chose to create a digital mind map because I prefer to work on the computer.
III and IV. DL Criteria and Reflections
- I challenge myself to increase my technological literacy by working with apps, software, or mediums that I have not used in the past (#8)
For this project I used GIMP for the first time. GIMP is a free image editing software, similar to photoshop. I have used other similar software, but decided to use GIMP this time because it was recommended to me by one of my peers.
2. I determine and use the most effective medium to present my work (#9)
We had the choice between creating our mind map digitally or on paper. I chose to do it digitally, because I work better on my computer and I can create a more in-depth project. I also don’t have the neatest writing, so typing it digitally helps readability.
3. My work demonstrates a positive, productive, and empathetic worldview (#15)
Using the short story, I emphasized the emotions that the main characters felt and showed why they felt the way they did. I try to be positive when it comes to people and I think I represented that well in my work.
