Doing It Daily

Doing It Daily

Presentation for the Maricopa 2015 Teaching With Technology Conference:

People who run races, musicians, and yes, even dentists know the benefit of practice and improvement via a regular daily routine. This same concept is used in The Daily Create (http://tdc.ds106.us), part of the open digital storytelling course DS106 (http://ds106.us), as a means to help people improve their creative skills with media. Each day since January 2011, the Daily Create publishes a challenge meant to be done in about 15 minutes, in the media of photography, drawing, audio, video, and writing. Try out the Daily Create for today, learn how the past challenges can be reused, and how you can create a Daily Challenge site for any topic via an open source Wordpress Theme.

  18. "Photography is an art and a craft. Getting better at

    both requires practice—lots of practice. The Daily Shoot is a simple daily routine to motivate and inspire you to practice your photography, and share your results! It’s not a contest and there are no prizes. It's simply about encouraging you to pick up your camera and make photographs. ! That's it. There aren't any other rules. You aren't going to get demerits if you miss a few days, nor will you get gold stars for doing every assignment. We're just here to help you with a little nudge every day. The rest is up to you!"

Almost everyday I’ve started with a completely different idea (or no idea) of what I was going to photograph, then stumbled upon something extraordinary. It’s forced me to think about things in new ways and it’s shown me that sometimes it’s easier to make art when you take a more hands-on approach and don’t overthink it.” Matt Martin, (http://blog.electrovert.net/?p=69)
