For our final project, we had to remix the dapper fox with a hat to another animal and accessory. I chose to give this rubber duckie a fun cap.
This project features HTML/CSS elements that utilize text, formatting, hyperlinks, and images in creating web documents. By using ‘markup’ tags, I was able to create this “Late to Work Excuse Generator”. It is a riff of our assignment titled, Homework Excuse Generator. Note to prospective employers, I will never use these.
This e-Portfolio features projects from LBSCI 700, The Technology of Information taught by Prof. Jose Sanchez.
“This course will introduce the student to the conceptual and practical elements of visual and computer literacy for the library and information science profession. Particular attention will be paid to the place and role of libraries and information centers. A laboratory session following each class will give students the opportunity to apply some of the concepts learned in class.”
“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.” Albert Einstein
How do you instruct up-to-the-moment Technology of Information to a roomful of part time graduate students from various undergraduate disciplines and stages of life? You don’t. This was the professor’s message to us on the first day of class. Instead, he emphasized on teaching us the basic skills necessary to understand, embrace, and challenge technological change.
The mindset of embracing technological change is of utmost to importance to a librarian. As research relies more upon online databases and journals, we’re on the forefront of connecting patrons to the information they seek and need. In public, academic, and special libraries alike, we as information specialists are called upon to create libguides and to teach usage of the library’s technologies.
Challenging the limits of current technology is the beginning of innovation. Through the assigned readings and group presentations, we’ve explored current issues surrounding technology. Problems concerning privacy, social media, workplace, and information economy are counter merits of any advancements. Together, we saw first hand how technology can share biases of their creators.
