GA: Open Lab Avatar Assignment

  • click on People to see OpenLab members
  • browse through a few pages of members, looking at the avatars
  • choose an avatar of a member of the OpenLab conveys something about that member
  • without reading anything about the person, what do you understand about them based on their avatar? If you click on it, you will see a larger version—but try not to read the member’s details yet!
  • make a list of what details you observe in the image when you look at the avatar
  • make a list of the interpretations you make about the details you observe
  • write a paragraph about how you interpret the avatar
  • now read about the member. Can you confirm or correct any of your interpretations or inferences? Do you think that the avatar does not represent them accurately? Add a few sentences to your paragraph to answer these questions
  • include your lists and paragraph, as well as a link to the member’s profile, in a comment in response to this blog post
  • submit it by Tuesday, 9/3, at 3:00
  • now you should be ready to write RWA#1, which you will write as a blog post, due at 12:00am on 9/8
