09 Week #7 Self-Assessment

It's time for parent-teacher conferences already again. For this week's blog I would like you to take a moment to reflect on what you have learned during the first part of this second of semester of class. What are some ways that you are stretching yourself and trying to develop your digital media skills? What are some things you are doing really well with? What areas could you show some improvements in? Self-critique is good once in awhile, often more important than percentage or letter grades, and I would love to hear things from your point of view.

I would also like you to post what you are considering for your Digies project. I know the time will sneak away from us like always and I would love to help you out as you formulate your plan for yet another impressive digital media project.
