Mashup Assignment

Oh what technology can do… This week our tech task for ecmp355 was to complete two assignments from the DS106 site. I have previously posted my first assignment which was Draw it! Today, will be a look into the mashup assignment called The @IamTalkyTina Headswap. Take a look at the assignment:

Take Tina’s head and place it on another person or animal or fictional character or something. The original idea was to swap a babies head (now I ain’t saying Tina is a baby) and a dolls head. So like you could find an image of a baby and a doll and put the dolls head on the baby and the babies head on the doll. Just search “Talky Tina” on the web and stick her head on something else.

This assignment tweeked my interest, as I have never before done something like this.  As with my previous assignment I used the program GIMP. I searched out some help topics and got at it. These are the two photos I started with:babyPhoto Credit: <a href=”http://www.flickr.com/photos/25859982@N07/12151894244/”>Matthieu Luna</a> via <a href=”http://compfight.com”>Compfight</a&gt; <a href=”http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/”>cc</a&gt;

mashupNow isn’t that cute?
This was a fun assignment to do and it didn’t take a whole lot of time; therefore, I think that this would be something that could be taught to possibly grade 5 or 6 students. These types of files could be used to intrigue students or to use as a picture prompt story starters.
