The level of difficulty is without a doubt a two star. I did not know where to begin at first, but then remembered that my computer had “Garage Band“. I opened it for the first time since I bought my notebook back in 2010.  Wow I know. Technology is amazing. The most difficult part was saving it into AAC.  At first I thought I would just save it as AAC when “Save As” was clicked, but sadly that was not the case.  I had to click on “Share” and then click on “Send song to itunes” where it would automatically save it as AAC version. The less difficult part was adding my audio to Sound Cloud and then posting it.

This being said I recorded myself speaking English with a Russian accent by inspiration of DS106, May I take your order? audio project.  While recording this clip, I thought about my father and his german,  russian, polish, uruguayan, argentinian accents. He’s such a character.  Over the years I have found to be doing the same when I read to my son. It’s crazy how unknowingly educators also change their voice when reading to young children.  It grabs their attention, makes them giggle, makes it fun.

Inspirational DS106, splash the color assignment was not so much challenging to computer savvy’s .  I for one are not and I immediately opened a video tutorial: splash the color. I found it very, very, very helpful.  Above is my loving, adorable, very active pet Lily.  This picture was one of the pictures that I took when  I first brought her home.  Another picture that I was inspired to do is this one below.  I call it One Rose Among Many Roses. I think I might have actually mastered  this assignment.

Here is my first visual assignment completed with a little help form Prof. Smith.  It was a little difficult to complete because I do not have photoshop installed in my mac. Sad, I know.  I think DS106 is one of the websites that I will visit more often, so many innovating and creative projects that are done by so many.

This picture was taken by myself in a company picnic last July.  At first my idea was to create a before and after picture because it was challenging to jump forward and also be able to go under the net.  The aftermath of the net challenge was hilarious. See below

One way I can use what I have learned here today in a classroom is to do the one shot project to look at cell division.
