photoI had an intensive week. I didn’t participate as frequently as I intended but I think my contributions and learning were meaningful. This week reading brings a sense of interdependence between my personal productions and participation in generation of collaborative thinking. I was able to connect readings, assignments, and critique into a cohesive whole regarding my theme of interest. I was pleased to have found great material in something intriguing for me such as machinima video production development with the purpose to generate cultural integration. This was a wonderful finding for me! I was able to associate productions I explored and the article I referred to in my reading reflection.
Last week I expressed my concerns of remixing practices that seem too focused in learn technical skills and critique thinking practices, but I was wondering if all this accessibility of tools and resources attempts to encourage originality. After this week’s exploration I feel more optimistic, I learned ways to specialize incorporating collaborative knowledge and context as a promissory approach to encourage creativity applying remixing practices. It is so much to learn and explore from others’ experience and I am glad I am having the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences in this accelerating but interesting process.

These are the links regarding my productions and contribution this days.
