ds106 Assignment Bank
For years, I’ve been a fan of Alan Levine’s (@cogdog) 50 Ways to Tell a Digital Story and his groundbreaking, open kick-butt DS106 (digital storytelling) course.
I recently rediscovered the DS106 Assignment Bank and I see it as a truly inspiring resource for inspiring K12 creativity.
This collection presents an array of options for student communication. It currently hosts 639 assignments and 5870 examples created from them. Users may visit Featured Assignments, spin for a randomly chosen assignment or view a random response to an assignment.
Assignments are organized by type–visual, design, audio, video, writing, animated GIFs, mashups, fanfiction, 3D printed, and web. Assignment descriptions share or link to examples of student work, tutorials (when available), and difficulty ratings on a 1 to 5 star scale. Because the course is open anyone, participants beyond ds106 may share new assignments or shorter ideas for the Daily Create, assignment that can easily be completed in 20 minutes or less.
