E-Lit . . . Yeah It’s Lit !!!!

This week we took a look at E-literature, something I have honestly never heard of.  As I was looking at the different forms of E-literature, which refers to works with an important literary aspect that takes advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer, I came across E-poetry.  I personally am a fanatic for good poetry and creative pieces, so I had to go in depth with the explanation of this particular form of literature. E-Poetry is, according […]

Digital Bot Press!

This picture is a clear reflection of how I see certain things as of now.  Exploring digital bots and how they operate was this week’s #Netnarr challenge.  Bots are sort of changing and shaping the new form of communicating between human to human, and “bots” to humans.  it is often hard to even detect anymore within in the web what could possibly be written by bots, and what was created by humans. Our first exercise in our bot adventure took […]

Gaming Narrative !

    Here is the gaming narrative I worked on.  Last week in my weekly Egypt mentioned how wwe posted questions to the student in the egypt class, working ontheir gaming idea project.  We asked questions and hped to get a response.  Due to the students being on their spring break, I did not get the opportunity to get the questions answered, but in this “podcast” type of narrative I explained why I chose this game idea to look at, and how I […]

Mapping Things Out (Redlining)

This week we looked into digital redlining, and even looked into how a few game board maps were designed to replicate certain cities or countries.  I chose to look specifically at the pokemon game board. I looked at it specifically in Newark, because this is a major area near my school.   It also has a good overlapping pattern to follow, which we would later use when have to match up this map, with the ma of Newark, NJ. Using the website H5P […]

Week 10 – Exploring Games and Creative Ideas

This week was very interesting to me.  Students from Egypt are creating ideas for Game Ideas and we got a first look at some of their blogs about their games. The topics were not all about fun games though, some were more serious games to put out a message.  I looked at a student named Aly’s Drug Addiction game, which would be a more informative game.  Choosing different drugs at a different point through your virtual adolescence and young adult life will give […]

One Egg, One Space! -Tamagachi Experience

Once upon a time, I hatched an egg  . . .  With only 3 buttons !!!! Tamagachi was created by some very tech chic people if you ask me because 3 buttons and you basically had your own personal pet.  Collecting keychains to have different creatures, which were adorable, and absolutely necessary to all the kids in my class.  To see the computer form also take the exact same approach by having only three keys to work the different functions was also […]

Exploring Sound Waves of the World

This week has been an awesome and exciting week in exploring #netnarr and what it has to offer.  First, in class, we started with empathy games.  I was in the group that had to play Fake News, a game that allowed you to be in control of the fame news world and spark controversy on different social media platforms and news sites.  The sad truth about the game is that this happens more often than not.  Due to anyone with internet […]

Gifs and Gaming, The Two G’S!!

All of social media has some of the best forms of electric comedy known to man.  Gifs are comical pictures that can truly brighten the soul.  They offer a great enjoyment when scrolling through your different timelines and feeds, and sometimes they are even better than the actual people on your timeline posting.  They are a universal thing for those who have access to different forms of social media or blogging.  Even if you do not know where the exact picture came from, […]

Selfie’s Rule!

This week in the world of #netnarr we explored “The Selfie”.  Deeper than that, we related it to the facial recognition identification  being used by Apple for many apps, and even their phones. ! The iPhone X allows you to open your phone through facial recognition aka a simple selfie flick and you have your password. We also spoke on the meaning of selfies and how big of a role a good selfie actually plays. Here’s one  My classmates and I talked […]

It led us all around […]

2nd Week of #NetNarr . . . Still Super New :/

Sooooo . . . . After spending all this time thinking I am so tech-savy and up to date, but sadly I  have discovered there -is a whole world out here that is still untouched by my mind.  #NETNARR – a whole online world where people connect to talk about how to connect on the internet in different ways and then see that connection? I think, possibly.  Still trying to gain a definition in my head, but still none the […]
