This week in class I will be demonstrating how case study and app review work might look. We will be formally dividing up into groups, selecting a “case” or an app, choosing roles (case study) or deployment strategies (app review), and developing a timeline for the project.
On Tuesday we will be discussing subdomains, categories, and the difference between a “centralized project” and a “federated project”. I will also be encouraging you to define how your project will address design, research, progress, networks, and revision/editing.
On Thursday I will hold a short workshop on designing with Canva (optional) and then discuss the app review assignment for 20 minutes (mandatory for app review students).
For next week’s CRA and Reflection/Application posts, please read/listen to the following texts. On Tuesday, come with notes on these sources with an attention to overlaps in their content, thoughts on synthesis (particularly between #2 and #3), and ideas about how these concepts will be useful to your final project.
