This will be my final ds106 assignment for this class
I decided to do the writing assignment session, New Emerging Technology Writing Assignment
This assignment directions is write about a recent emerging technology and how it has effected our society. This assignment I felt was perfect for this section as we are talking about the future of education.
Well the NUMBER ONE technology anyone would have to agree is the emerging of smartphones. Smartphones have been our only a few years yet the idea of it has spread so fast that most people in advanced countries own them or at least have used them and know what it does. Smartphones can do anything a computer can do but it can be done anywhere as long as the person is holding the phone. This results in information flying around here and there within seconds. For instance i think that twitter has gained alot from smartphones especially in Korea. If you go to Naver the number one search engine in Korea and search any famous star on it a stars profile will pop up and their recent twit and peoples twit about this person. People can be riding the bus and in the past people would just stare into space or pretty girls/guys on the bus but now they are taking in information and replying their thought instantly.
Whether we like it or not cyberspace and society is growing rapidly even though there is only one class in the university. Out in the real world it is what is being invented at this very moment.
As my mind wanders as how the internet will be effected by this as time goes on is beyond my imaginations. SmartPhones are becoming our cameras our textbooks our news our toy and our life. One possilbe thought that comes into mind is that like in Cambell’s video our whole process of learning will change. The possibilities are endless for these phones and technology and to be honest I am both scared and excited to what it will become/brings in the future.
For my third ds106 assignment I decided to do the web assignment section called “Google Maps Story” I decided to do this assignment to introduce korea more and also talk about korean army as well.
This is the area where i served about 50% of my military service in. I was in the DMZ called GOP (General Outpost). There isn’t many people you get to see here and the place is very quiet. We are far away from the city and the only building is the building we live in which consist of about 35 people. In the Korean Army you dont’ get many vacations but the ones you do are golden and are very memorable.
This is my home. If people have ever been to seoul they will know about gangnam. I live around 20-30 minutes away from there. I’ve lived here for about 7 years and have many memories of the place.
Well when i was out i decided to go to the beach. We drove here at midnight and we ate shellfish and clams with a little bit of alchohol and afterwards i went into the ocean because of the alcohol..
Still these memories will stay with me forever. I hope these pictures interested you and if you have any questions about korea come and ask me!
For my second assignment I chose to do a design assignment called “Word” and directions for this assignment was to not using any colors try to represent the meaning of the word through manipulating the word itself.
I chose upside down because I first thought about making the word look upside down but decided that it wasn’t creative enough so i decided to have each word turn toward becoming upside down.
I opened up photoshop and first time each letter to spell Upsidedown. Then putting them in a row I rotated using ctrl+t on each letter to make it seem like the word is slowing rotating 180 degrees.
I think the picture explains the word well and this assignment was a blast and learn some new skills for photoshop
For my first assignment for this section I decided to do Time Lapse Composite which is in the Visual Assignments section. The point of this assignment is to make a photo of a place and a thing that demonstrates motion and time. The example given for this assignment looked like this…
This photo shows a picture of airplanes departing in the runway. When looking at the picture i thought of many ideas but soccer came to mind the most so i decided to do soccer.
The shooter is Steven Gerrard, a midfielder for Liverpool. It shows him shooting and I edited to make it so that the ball going in all directions.
Directions – I first found a picture of Gerrard shooting the ball from a distance and then also found a picture of a ball. I opened up adobe Photoshop and edited the balls size so that the ball fits the picture. Pressing ctrl+t allows the program to edit and then repeating the process of copy pasting and moving the picture to appropriate places.

For my Third ds106 Assignment I did the “Car Lust“.
The Instructions given was “So I wanted to submit a new visual assignment. All of us, most of us anyways, have a dream car. This is a simple assignment. Take a picture, or find a picture on the web of a car that you love. Then, write a description of how that car make you feel. That’s it. Short and simple. This combines the visual of a car, with the story telling aspect, of how an object make you feel.”
Process – Well I found my dream car picture online and then posted here.
Story – I personally always liked designs of Audi’s and this car when i look at it makes me want to succeed. This would be a dream car and not many people can afford it. It gives me energy to try and move forward with my life and try to succeed to a point where i can afford this car.
I did the assignment Your Dreams out a Window
The instructions given for this assignment was “Photograph your best day dreaming window and alter it to show what you’re dreaming of. Maybe it’s a dream of a different season, a vacation destination, a moment in the past, or a fantasy land; it’s all up to your imagination! Have fun merging a familiar spot with a whole new view!”.
Process – The Assignment was very simple to do. First I found a frame of a window then using adobe illistrator put the picture inside the window frame.
Story – This picture was taken last year february when I was still in military service. I was out for vacation for about 5 days so my friends and I were drinking in seoul to celebrate the occasion. Around midnight we all decided that we wanted to see the ocean and decided right then and there to go to the ocean. The place we chose was about 1.5 hours away from seoul. When we got there we ate some sea shells and drank a little. The picture is of me and my friend going into the ocean afterwards.
For my Second DS106 Assignment I did “Make the Untranslatable Understood”
“Use the Random Words with No English Translation tool to generate a word that could be better understood with a photo or image. Find a creative commons image or make your own, and include the word somehow in the image (using a desktop photo editor or web tool like Aviary or PicNIk). Then share it with someone and ask if it makes sense.”
This was the instruction given to me for this assignment.
At first I didn’t know if i wanted to do this assignment but when I visit the site which gives random words with no english translation the word which in in my picture came up. Instantly I had to do the assignment because recently I watched a movie similar to this meaning and also this word also has great meaning to me as well. First I went to look for pictures that would work to show the meaning of friendship and found two pictures of their friendship when they were young and when they grow old. Then I used gimp and by putting two pictures together and putting the words in place I was finished.
7 Girl Friends who were how do you put it bad students, or like best fighters in the school meet after many years to find that many things have changed but also as a person nothing changes. I don’t want to ruin the movie for people but if anyone wants to watch it please leave a comment and I will get back to you. Finally I’ll post the picture of each actor here incase anyone is interested.
