Reflection: Complex Tasks Final Project: Selecting Images for Scenes (Day 2 of 3) - Section 2: Image Search


A couple of quick observations: first, some student did a superb job with this, finding over a dozen engaging images and documenting the choices that they made (as in TheHobbit-Citations).  Others seemed to rely too heavily on found images from the movies already produced.  I think that when used sparingly, these images might be o.k., but some projects over-played the movie images, and in effect the student projects were not much different than a photo roman reworking of the film.  Mea culpa: I did not warn them not to do this, and I am sure that there is still some value in doing this kind of project, but just the same, I would probably steer clear from allowing this kind of thing on future iterations of the project.
