Affordances and Constraints of Media


Hey all~

Here’s what we’re going to be working on today:

  • We’ll be talking about Affordances and Constraints (what are they? how are they different across media?)–and we’ll chart this out.
  • We’ll watch a TED talk by comic artist Scott McCloud and compare some of his points about visual composition to the stuff we read about writing and the writing process over the weekend.
  • We’ll use the second half of class to WORKSHOP our SFDs of our Personal Narrative. (I have some suggestions/options for how we can set this up).
