App Blog – Taryn Pilkington

For my own locative app, I first started out with the idea of doing a somewhat scary virtual tour. I made it more into a story than a tour. The person would have to follow the directions and they would hear the scary things going on around them. Unfortunately, I had a lot of trouble […]

Pilkington Blog Post #2

I thought that this video was going to be relatively easy but I really haven’t started thinking about what I am going to do for my 8 second how to video.  I have brainstormed a few ideas with my roommates and have come up with how to enjoy life (very very broad), how to plan […]

Blog Post #1 – Photo-a-day – Taryn Pilkington

For the first two photo-a-day assignment, I had no problem with what to take pictures of.

For the second theme, “family”, I was […]
