Week 1 Reminders & Looking Ahead to Week 2

Week 1 Reminders & Looking Ahead to Week 2

Hi everyone,

Thanks for jumping in to the work this week! Lots of details as we get set up and I appreciate you trying everything out…I know it’s a lot, but once we settle into routines, it will feel less overwhelming. I’m just looking for your best effort as we get started. The best thing you could do so you feel less overwhelmed is to take 20 minutes or so and look over our class website, especially reading the syllabus and reading all the way through the Make Cycle 1 page. If you’ve already looked things over, then when we explain in class it won’t be the first time you’re seeing the information.

By the end of week 1, you should have completed the following:

  1. Bookmarked our course website and the calendar.
  2. Joined your group’s G+ community (and some teams wrote an introduction)
  3. Completed your first Discussion post and shared in the G+ category called Make 1: Discussion (this was due Friday night, 1/26)
  4. The Quantified Self paper is due by the time you come to class on Monday (1/29). See the bottom of the page on Make Cycle 1 for assignment details.

In class Monday, we will work with your drafts, look at some of the discussion posts that are great models of what we’re looking for, and prep for the makes that are due at the end of week 2.

For week 2:

  1. BRING LAPTOPS! Really, you’ll need a laptop every class and workshop. Please email your mentor and me if you do not have one so we can problem solve and perhaps check one out for you.
  2. You are reading The Selfie & the Self” for Wednesday (1/31)
  3. You’ll have a make due on Sunday, Feb 4 (you’ll get a chance to work on these makes in the workshop). Again, all the assignment information can be found in the Make Cycles; in this case, Make Cycle 1.

Grateful for your efforts and I look forward to reading all the things you write and create this semester!
