Learning journal where I can put my ideas and assignments about Digital Portfolios, Assessment & Employability.
Week 0 assignment: Video: "What is for me personal digital brand?"
Week 1 assignment: A headshot, retouched and sized
Making a headshot wasn't that easy as it sounds in this time of the selfy. But I think this was the right one. Enough wrinkles to retouche and a double chin to remove. Made some chances in the RAW version.
Week 2 assignment: Planning and creating a CV / Résumé that will stand out from the crowd and show potential employers the skills and experience you have to offer. You’ll incorporate your headshot and upload the finished CV / Résumé to your Behance portfolio.
This is a hard assignment for me because it is a lot of work. I will do this in bit and publish it when it's done, meanwhile working on the other assignments.
The CV was a hard assignement, the last one I made, was about 30 years ago. So I didn't know what to tell and I don't need one because I have a very nice job. Because of this I thought I could make a CV of my Adobe history. It is only since the summer of 2015 I'm using Adobe in my classes, so I'm not very experienced, but by using it every day and doing these courses I learn a lot.
I don't know if I'm going to use it in my classes, because most of my pupils are a bit young, but perhaps my colleague and I are making some lessons for the older children who want to go to the Graphic Lycea.
Week 3 assignment: Create your own personal brand logo and mock up headers for Facebook, Youtube and Twitter.
First I made some sketches for my logo. I was a serveillant for some tests and only have to watch if the students needed paper or other stuff. This is quite boring so I took some time to think about my personal logo. I don't think that is easy.
