    Creating a "Storied Portfolio" Using Adobe Spark Page Project by james kinney May 25, 2017 Products Adobe Spark Behance 33 0

    FOREWARD: This project is part of a Digital Storytelling course. The rationale for the project is anchored in the fact that simply posting and curating a website with static images and text in a world where almost TWO BILLION images per day surge onto the web will result in those images having an underwhelming relevance and impact. The rise of mobile social platforms has been a game-changer in how we value online experience. Social requires presence, presence requires identity, identity requires a story, story needs to be supported by evidence, credentials and artefacts (text, images and videos). Social also demands participation or engagement and engagement requires sharing. One may choose to share enthusiasm and encouragement (Likes), Comments, Opinions, Feedback or Critiques, Know-how, Tips, Referrals, Jobs and even Money! The degree and quality of our participation forms the basis of our Social Capital and that social capital converts to influence and influence opens the door to monetization of one's activities. Increasing one's social capital is the ultimate focus of this project. It should be understood that there is an imperative in the mobile social world to constantly curate and share one's self and that being a wallflower will relegate one to being the digital equivalent of one of Plato's cave dwellers! What is a "Storied Portfolio"? A storied portfolio wraps one's visual narrative (the collection of visual artefacts that instantiate one's body of work and processes) in a text that instantiates the creator's academic or professional trajectory, their philosophy or worldview vis-a-vis their creative or intellectual quarry as well as unique, personal perspectives that serve to provide an authentic and intimate basis on which to know and engage with the creator—it is a way of "getting to know" the person before the prospect of actually getting to know them—which is entirely possible and has happened on social creative platforms such as Behance. This braiding of one's story with one's works may be likened to being toured around a design studio or an art gallery with the designer or artist, respectively. Mobile social's inducement to participation requires that we be able to share powerful and meaningful stories that will excite, entertain, inform and encourage the members of our various communities. These stories can be told exclusively through image, video, audio, text or a combination of any and all of these media. Being able to bind these various media elements together happens best when they are tied to a central story—it helps us to better understand them and to attribute to them particular significance. Stories help us to make sense of the complex and chaotic and seeing you and your work tied to an interesting and compelling story helps it to stand out from the infinite and chaotic morass of media artefacts that clog the arteries of the web. Story, then, provides added value. It is in this context that it is incumbent upon us to develop our stories and connect our work to those stories. THIS, in the general sense, is what a storied portfolio is. The collection of stories, story fragments and artefacts that trail behind us are what constitute our narrative. Narrative is really the sum total of our activities—the overall, general impression. This is crucial to areas in art and design such as Advertising, Marketing, Brand Design, Brand Strategy and Brand Management. As you transition into your professional life you and your work will develop as a brand—one that will have not only a "look" but a host of stories associated with it—some which you will author and others written by the people and companies who have come into contact with you and your company's products or services. These will form the basis of your brand narrative. These activities in the digital realm are what constitute what has been referred to as one's digital footprint and the learning surrounding the activity is geared towards creating active and engaged digital citizens. So, a storied portfolio is a way of creating and controlling the elements that will represent you and will metaphorically and quite literally write the narrative of your brand. These elements will range from tweets and other social media posts on platforms like Facebook or Instagram to sharing creative and production know-how on communities like Behance or in more formalized and directed forms like Storied Portfolios on platforms like Spark Page. NOTE: While I work with art and design students, a storied portfolio is not the sole preserve of those disciplines. This sort of activity would make for excellent reflexive, meta-cognitive activity for students of any persuasion. More and more, being able to validate skills and knowledge using online tools is becoming the rigour and, so, I would encourage educators from other disciplines to try this out with their students. How is it created? It is important to provide students with some narrative scaffolding to help them structure the textual and visual elements that will constitute their portfolios. This can be in the form of question prompts or information categories, examples of which I will share later. The project is assembled using the Adobe Spark Page platform and shared with the community either through Behance or Twitter.

    Public Canvas Course https://acu.instructure.com/courses/2015607 Guided Learning Theory This is a 16-week online course, and involves a great deal of social media research and interaction. Constructivism will be the Guided Learning Theory used in this course, as it will “create opportunities for the evolution of knowledge” (Schrader, 2015). Each week students will be engaging interactive assignments, as well as sharing their perspectives, interacting with their peers, as well as providing their own unique content for others to interact with. Students will make decisions based their own values, and use prior and current experiences to derive knowledge. The instructor will point students towards content that will move students from what they currently know about photography, towards a deeper understanding of how it can be used to create and solve problems in society. Knowing each student’s previous experiences with the subject matter will be different, the opportunity to learn from different perspective while engaging each other through synchronistic meeting discussions, as well as providing their own resources and reflections through social media will greatly enhance the learning environment as they seek to provide solutions of their own. Topic This course will focus on the use of photography as a tool to illuminate American society by encouraging students to engage, reflect on, and create photographs that represent the cultural diversity of America. Audience The intended audience for this course will be undergraduate students from various disciplines, interested in knowing more about how photography has and can influence perception and change in American society. As the course is completely online, it will require students to have some familiarity with LMS functionality, as well as navigating through linked online research and content. Purpose The purpose of this course is to develop skills necessary in engaging, understanding, and creating photographs which represent the social diversity of America, and how it is represented through photography. The course will provide opportunities for students to use photos they have taken, in order to help facilitate discussions about how photography has been used, how photographs effect you and others, and how photographs have been used to change or maintain the society around us. The course will require a 10 to 15 photo portfolio representing a specific community or problem within the student’s daily life that has been inspired by a photograph they have chosen which represents the cultural diversity of America. A ten-minute video will also be created by each student as a means of providing fellow students, faculty, and others with a synopsis of what the student learned and created, as well as how the student plans on using what they have learned beyond the course. Problem In a New York Times article from 2015, Stephen Hayman outlines for us the “cultural ripple effect” of having a projected amount of 1.3 trillion photographs taken each year by 2017 (Haymen, 2015). What is photography? How do we depict our surroundings, and each other in the photographs we take? Can one or a series of photographs change the way we view our American society? This course provides students with a way to explore their own, and other’s answers to these questions in the very format most of them are viewing and sharing photographs – online. Format The course will be delivered 100% Online. Technologies Required Students will want to be sure they have access to an active internet connection. Synchronistic meetings will require a computer, tablet, or smartphone to participate. Software: Adobe Creative Cloud (use the university’s enterprise account)Working email accountWindows Media Player or QuickTimeWeb browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome)Google Drive (Instructor will need for Assessment) Students will also need to use an existing, or create new accounts/profile in the following: WordPress BlogFacebookInstagramFlickrcom (use the university’s enterprise account) Students will need to own, or have consistent access to a device that is capable of taking digital photographs. It is recommended the device has an image sensor that is a minimum of 5 megapixels (MP) in size. Any of the following devices can be used, if it meets the minimum MP: Compact Digital CameraDSLR or Mirrorless Camera (may be checked out from the university’s Learning Studio for projects – up to three days at a time)SmartphoneSports Camera (example: GoPro)
