Due Today

  • Complete the export process on your book (Individual Book Project) for Kindle and iBook formats and be prepared to iron out any issues during class.

Activities to Complete by Tuesday, March 31

  • Continue working on your ePub versions of your individual book projects during spring break
  • Reading. Read "Digital School" and "Ambient Awareness" in Smarter Than You Think (175-244).
  • Blogging. Address either of these two questions: From "Digital School": How does writing (and/or designing) for a public audience affect what you say, how you think about your work and what difference it might make? Or, from "Ambient Awareness": Describe the idea of "ambient contact" and how it has worked in one situation you've been involved in. As always, include two more more images (screenshots of your own workspace while producing an ebook might work well!) and two external links to the work or writing of others. TAGS: blog8, digital publics, and any others that may be relevant.
