Well, the semester is almost over which means the end to my last Digital Media class ever. It has been a really fun class, and I am so glad I ended up taking it. While I didn’t have much of an option, it did prove to turn out much better than first expected. I am not a huge tech guru, unlike my dad whose life literally revolves around his computer. But this class has really helped me understand some of the basics of tech which has been great for me, especially as technology continues to grow and evolve.
When the class first started, I really enjoyed it. I like taking notes and being able to have them to refer back to. The quizzes are not hard so long as you study and as long as you turn everything in on time, it is near impossible to do poorly in the class. I really enjoyed this blog. I know it was a new concept and an experiment, but I think it turned out great and getting to read what my other classmates had to say helped me to learn a little more about them. I wasn’t close with some of the students before, but I feel like I have a slight insight into their minds because of the blog, and I like that a lot!
My least favorite part of the class, or topic rather, was the First Amendment. That is not because of anything we did during that time. I just have a huge lack of interest in history and government of any sort. It confuses me and I just don’t care enough to learn about it. The project involved was fine; in fact, everything about that section was fine. It was a personal problem that I didn’t enjoy that section as much.
Another thing I liked was the movie we got to watch. Having a week in class or so just to relax and not have to think about anything was so nice and relieving in my busy schedule. It helped give me just a moment to get lost in something other than school work. I really loved that. I also surprisingly liked learning about InDesign. Despite the fact that our class had devil InDesign for the first few weeks, once we got it right, we actually learned it. In addition, I increased my knowledge of Photoshop which is seriously an accomplishment for me. You can ask Katie Waller from Tech I. She had to either do or show my everything that we did involving Photoshop, but this semester I have learned so much about it! And know, I’m actually decent at it, or can at least figure it out enough to get through.
All in all, I really enjoyed the class. Thanks for a great semester Mrs. Huddleston!
