Week 12 Update: New Zoom links, assignment info

via GIPHY

Welcome to week 12! Here’s an overview with some important announcements:

  • NEW ZOOM LINKS are on the Private Student Blog. OU increased security, and now the links have all changed. CHECK IT OUT please.
  • Wed assignments: Readings are the same for Wed on the schedule. There are options for the videos about 3d scanning (you also can listen on audio– play it on your headphones while you’re out for a walk or doing laundry or whatever).
  • Wed “class”: We will have a guest, Dr. Garrett from the Libraries who works in the 3d Scanning Lab during our Zoom session Wed. Please lmk if you can’t make it to our class meeting. As usual we will keep it short.
  • Keep working on your portfolios and projects. PLEASE LMK when you want another one on one consult. I will have more instructions on the project this week.
  • The 3d Model Digital Tutorial will be up later this week. You’ll have some options.
  • Next week: still updating next week (Week 13’s) readings. I will be adding more links to 3d scanned items related to readings in lieu of a visit to the AR/VR lab.

As always, I hope you and your loved ones are well!

Update 3/12 re online course mode

In general, I will be trying to provide a high quality educational experience for you – you deserve it.  I know we are all stressed by the situation, though, so please: do what you need to do to be healthy and safe first and address this class second. We will all need to be generous and patient with each other.  You have my cell phone #– reach out if you are stressed, confused, or just want to say hi!

Connectivity:  If you have any problems with high-speed internet connectivity, please send me an email or text from your mobile phone so we can figure out a solution or alternative.

Class after break:  Please block out the whole class time Wed 3-5:40; we will spend some time just getting used to the format.  We will spend sometime all together as a group. We may spend some time with each of you in one on one convos with me.  Check your email, texts and the PRIVATE STUDENT BLOG for details about how we will meet (Zoom, FaceTime, etc.).

Revised assignments:

Blog posts: will continue as scheduled. Please be sure to post QUESTIONS in the post. Blog posts are still due at 9 pm Tuesdays.

Days there are readings but no student posts assigned: I will post to the student blog with some questions. So always check the blog Tuesday nights!!

Class participation/comments:  We will no longer use comments to the blog as part of the grade; instead they will be folded into class participation.  To achieve Satisfactory participation each day of class:

  • Respond with at least one response to each post on the blog for that day.
  • Each response should be internally coherent on one theme.  (Use multiple responses to address multiple questions or themes.)
  • Each response should engage one or more specific things in the readings
  • THREAD responses: respond to each other’s comments if you’re on the same theme/question
  • Authors of original blog posts should respond substantively to one or more comments on their post and respond to the other post if there is one.
  • Attend our abbreviated online discussion, via Zoom or FaceTime or Google Hangouts (TBA) during regularly scheduled class time
  • Attend individual consults with Dr. S. to be scheduled during our regularly scheduled class time.

Whenever possible, please post responses/comments early (rather than right before classtime) so that people can reply and have conversations.

Digital Tutorials will continue: they may be a little different, because we may not have as many opportunities for one on one mentoring and helping. I will modify as necessary.

Digital Portfolio on your personal websites (OU Create) will continue. I will post more instructions and a rubric today or tomorrow. 

Final Project will continue:  We will discuss ideas in class on the Wednesday after break.  The priority will be to enable you to create something independently using one or more methods in class.  Start thinking about research questions, themes/things that interest you, data sets (texts, images, other data), etc., for class the Wed. after break.

Take care!!!

Websites used in spatial history/mapping day

https://www.slavevoyages.org/voyage/maps

https://www.thoughtco.com/redlining-definition-4157858

http://dsl.richmond.edu/panorama/#maps

http://www.becomingrichardpryor.com/pryors-peoria/ (click on Places)

http://orbis.stanford.edu/

Find a passage in the article on spatial history that helps describe what the map(s) or website(s) you’re looking at is/are doing.

Then consider also: “space” is not an inhuman, unchanging object. Answer as many of the following questions as you can with your map/website:

  • How does space change over time?
  • Who inhabits the space?
  • How do the boundaries of the space change?
  • How do perceptions of the space change?
  • Who has power in that space and who does not?
