One of the most interesting things about this semester thus far is that I am getting the chance to expand the definition to what is “homework” till May. During this semester, experimenting with Twitter and Blogging – as well as photography for a different course – will be considered homework for the fact that in order to do well in these areas, you have to do.
With annotating during a TV show using Twitter is something I never really thought about. I have tweeted about what’s going on during #Glee or #JanebyDesign; yet I never really thought as annotating.
