BC: Visual Journal Reflection - My favorite part about the visual journal is being able to complete it through a digital medium. Using Mixbook has allowed me to easily layer new understandings, insert visual ideas, and keep a versatile record of my journey in teaching art. - If I were to do the visual journal again, I would try to select a digital medium that allows me to insert multimedia ideas (eg. videos, links, audio) into the journal, as this broadens the range of ideas that could be depicted through the visual journal. - I could improve my visual journal by creating a visual table of contents that has thumbnail pictures of the different ideas, and linking the thumbnail pictures to the corresponding page in the journal.
