The ds106 Assignment Bank is a website that has a variety of assignments that are in different categories such as visual, audio, mashup, web, etc.
I went through the categories and assignments and picked one to show as an example. I chose the assignment called 4 lines, 5 dots, 1 curve. It’s a super easy assignment and doesn’t require any fancy programs as I used the paint program to make mine. All that is required is that you make something out of 4 lines, 5 dots, and 1 curve. Simple.
There are so many things that you can make! All that it takes is a little bit of imagination and some creativity.
I think this assignment would be good to use in the classroom for elementary years as it is easy to understand and allows the students to use their creativity and imagination. They can make as many pictures as they like as long as it follows the restrictions of how many dots, lines and curves to use. This is also an assignment that will help the students get comfortable using a computer and can be used when you have a sub!
Try making a picture of your own! See what you come up with and let me know what you made!
