Media Fluency Reflection
- How was the ease of access in building the town, and what software did you use specifically?
I used roll for fantasy, it was very easy to use. I did have a little bit of trouble with the overlapping of the bricks, but it worked out in the end
- Were you able to apply the skills you learned in the planning stages appropriately to a digital environment?
Yes, I was I planned everything out first then I added it in I made sure that everything had a place
- What were the sources you researched that made this an “authentic make-believe” town?
Ms. Mattson showed us pictures of what these towns usually looked like so I went back and looked at how they were laid out and built
- Is there other software online that could have done the job better? Explain.
There probably is, it was a little tricky when I was trying to place/delete blocks and line everything up especially with rotating the blocks as it would not load properly on my laptop.
