Hacking, Remixing, Design

Spring 2017

This seminar explored making, hacking, and remixing as creative and critical practices in the form of studio workshops and reflective class activities. My class blog features 5 different digital projects, ranging from an “virtually unlimited paper fortune teller” to an “impossible” marketing campaign for behavioral manipulation.

Educational Technology Fundamentals

Spring 2016

During my second semester abroad, I enrolled in this class at La Universidad de Buenos Aires. On the first day, we were asked to draw out what we thought the “classroom of the future” would look like. After explaining my idea (in somewhat broken Spanish to the class), I’m proud to say that my prototype for the assignment was featured on the class blog!

Introduction to Digital Studies

Fall 2016

This course provided an introduction to the history of digital studies, an overview of machine learning, and ethical concerns related to changes in the digital age. My class blog features 3 reflections on class activities related to digital memory, online privacy, and freedom in the digital age.

IFSA-Butler Argentine Universities Program

Fall 2015

Thanks to the First Generation Scholarship, I was able to study abroad in Buenos Aires. I wrote 3 blog posts during my first semester there, capturing in words the challenges of living abroad, the beauty of learning a new language, and the journey of constructing an identity.

Elemental Coding Afterschool Program

January 2017

I received the Dean Rusk International Travel Grant to research what were informal educational practices in La Paz, Bolivia. My research experience and travel abroad struggles are best documented in my travel blog.
