EDCI 336 – March 19, 2019


We started off today’s class by learning a little bit about graphic design from some of our talented peers. They explained the design principles of C.R.A.P. (contrast, repetition, alignment, proximity) and how to pay attention to them as professionals. From there, we were set loose to use Adobe Spark, Canva or PicMonkey to create something for ourselves. I created the image above using Canva (which is now my twitter header)! It was super easy and there’s tons of free templates without watermarks. I will most definitely be using it again.


Experimenting with Sketchnoting really opened my eyes to other ways of processing new information. I’m looking forward to exploring TED talks online to learn more. Here are a few images of my practice notes.


Twine is a really neat online platform used to create choose your own adventure stories (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch actually originated here). The only part of Twine that took some getting used to was saving the html file to my UVIC server. However, I’m glad to have gained a little bit of coding experience in the process! I know my younger sister and future students will love this handy tool.
