Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy

Bloom’s theory he divides the three types of domains as following, cognitive, affective, and psycho-motor. Cognitive deals with mental skills which I consider myself very good at. I find it easy to obtain knowledge and comprehend what I’m being taught. Psychomotor deals with manual or physical skills, which I find is my weakness, my organization skills are terrible and I have a hard time finding time to get things done. Affective which means growth in feelings or emotional areas are my best qualities about myself. I’ve been raised with great morals and I place high value on key things in my life and never take anything for granted.

21st Century Literacies

This is the world I live in, where information is attainable in seconds. From the manuals to toaster ovens that were made in 1986 to videos on how to extend facial features in Photoshop CS6. In this century skills have become more of a standard as everyone and their Grandmothers can learn how to do things with a google search. However with the knowledge I know from being overly dedicated to social media outlets, internet and youtube I can self teach myself almost anything. Everything I’m passionate about is related to 21st century literacies. However with great power comes great responsibility and when you’re engaged in such a vast and prodigious world called “the internet” you can be easily distracted. Pop ups to Youtube videos of cute kittens doing humours things can lead to sleepless nights and incomplete homework. With that being said the ability to filter out the useless aspects of the internet would be a skill I could improve on.

INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH

Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Practice-Based Research by Mike Leggett is a well written and informative article discussing the key components of science and how it relates to art. Mark Leggett has opened up a new door for art with science and how it could bring something bigger to “the bigger picture”.  Science and Art have battled with each other with both parties residing on different sides of the spectrum. Science involving around factual based conceptions and art surrounding around conceptual and interpretative thinking.

 

There is no doubt that Science and Art will blend flawlessly together and I see no real cons in having both meet up to create something beautiful. Science could only broaden an artists skill-set and have him interact and understand his surroundings much better.

Tinkering

“One who enjoys experimenting with and repairing machine parts.”

However its not only with machine parts, being in New Media you realize that you can tinker with almost everything to do with technology. Social media websites, programs, art, film you name it you can experiment with it. My tinkering skills are present when recording music. I mix and master my own songs and I play with every aspect of sound. Vocal, instrument and synthesizer. I replicate sounds, create new ones by playing with frequency range and compression and create a dynamic that wasn’t there before.

 

I could improve on the actual handling and repairing of things. I’ve never been much of a hands on guy in terms of tools and actual objects. I’ve always been good with behind a computer however never been knowledgable of what goes on inside and the parts. I will work on that throughout the year and improve my tinkering skills.

Oral Skills

Oral presentations have become my favourite style of presentations when it comes to education. I have many years of experience when it comes to Oral presentations as I am a musician and have preformed live many times. From my vocal projection, my wittiness to keep the listener attached, the well spoken and annunciated words to sticking to the main idea, engaging listeners and incorporating the audience in my discussions I am confident in my Oral skills ability.  Continue reading

The use of technology in a way that broadens and enhances the boundaries we placed in Media. New Media is a way to step outside the box and create something that hasn’t been seen before. Each and everyday we take steps in a direction to where nothing is impossible, what we dream can become a reality.
