Old stuff

February 24

You got my note over the weekend, so you know this will be the night of many returns. I’ll give back and go over some lessons from the photo assignment, the coding and the ENP post.  Then we will

  • have discussion #3 with Erin, Amanda and Cody
  • open the two demo files and experiment with Audacity; I also have some headphones if you want to test the narration; look at SoundCloud as well and get an account and look at how to use the WordPress player with the [audio ] shortcode
  • look at some data food calories from food carts in Philly from (the former) Axis Philly, and an article on food calories at McDonald’s to experiment with creating an Infogram
  • the basic procedure is to: create an account at infogr.am, (Q: What country is it hosted in?) verify it via email, try New Chart; select Treemap; double-click the generic info to add a title and edit the content; click on the gear icon to edit the theme, size and so on; create some data for now in Excel on Food item (col. 1) and calories (col. 2); copy and paste that into infogr.am or enter it directly in infogr.am; (NOTE you can do this with two sheets so you could compare McD’s calories to the food cart ones with radio buttons it will create; test with the eye at top left; publish button, top left; View on the Web; get the link and make a post (could be on your Notes or Other page, but this one does make sense as a blog post)
  • or maybe use some data on poverty rates in Philadelphia vs. Pennsylvania that a couple of you found for the ENP post
  • finish the infographic post by next class, March 10 (along with the audio; we will have time to finish that during the March 10 class

Here’s an Infogram (with embed code on my WordPress.org site)
