Revise and Edit (Extra Credit)

For the majority of the revisions, I changed or added tags of each blog post. Many of these posts did not have any categories or tags, and Mrs. A preferred that all students categorize their posts in order to have more organization and specification for their work. For example, my “Formal BED- Trader Joe’s” post was missing tags and categories. After adding labels to my post, it then helped sort the page by the topic it was about and made it more custom. It is also now combined with other posts about Trader Joe’s, other built internal environments, and built environment descriptions. Another example is from my “Insight into Zoo Atlanta’s Website- Digital BED” post. At first, all of my photos would only lead to the link of the picture after getting clicked on. I then went back and added links to the screenshots of the website, which opened up to the actual zoo website and allowed readers to see more of that page. Adding links to the headings of each artifact was also one of my other edits, and that helped the reader gain easy access to the site. This adds more visual attraction and convenience for the viewers who visit this post about Atlanta Zoo’s...

Built Environment Analysis: The New Turner Field (Draft)

(Photo from mlb.com // Click image to visit website) Intro: (Background about new stadium for Atlanta Braves) http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/atl/ballpark/suntrust-park/overview/construction/ Thesis: Turner Field’s new location establishes an external boundary that excludes cultures and economic classes other than wealthy white people. Internal boundaries also create a system that categorizes people by race, income, and social standing.   Sets cultural and economic norms… Cultural Exclusion Physical location (neighborhood) Public Transportation http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/atl/ballpark/suntrust-park/overview/transportation/ Economic Class Exclusion Transportation and parking http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/atl/ballpark/suntrust-park/overview/parking/ Neighborhood (Cost$$) http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/Smyrna-GA-30080/pmf,pf_pt/70859_rid/any_days/globalrelevanceex_sort/33.875992,-84.478619,33.858353,-84.516814_rect/14_zm/ Economic Impact http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/atl/ballpark/suntrust-park/overview/economic-impact/   The Caste System… Categorize by Race Categorize by Income Categorize by Social Standing Conclusion & References: The new “Turner Field” location and design promotes a [narrow?] cultural and economic norm that promotes discrimination and enhances the divide between Atlantans.

Formal BED- Digital Environment of Zoo Atlanta

From http://visitatlantasdekalbcounty.com/ As soon as I clicked on “www.zooatlanta.org,” the first thing that caught my eye on the home page was the large slideshow of pictures. It switched pictures automatically and showed a variety of designs, colors, and different animals. It was also bordered by colors in the range of yellow, green, white, and brown. Multiple links are posted around the page along with designs and pictures that seem to be both kid friendly and adult friendly. The majority of each page appeared to be fairly age and gender neutral. Additionally, there is easy access to each link, specifically the YouTube video, that is able to be viewed directly from the page that the reader is currently on. The words are also colored throughout the page to indicate that it is a link and can be clicked on. Each link under the drop-down menu displayed information in a clean and clear manner. The zoo hours and rates were all listed and different prices were organized by age and standings such as being a college student or member of the military. Tickets can also be easily purchased with a click of a button on the website as well as be purchased with a discount. Learning opportunities are also openly available for both children and adults through events and organizations that the zoo has to offer. The website, overall, seems to be easily accessible by any age, race, and gender with easy to read font styles, colors, and sizes. The pictures and designs throughout the webpage add more color and may attract the website’s visitors more. It has unique features that...

Insight into Zoo Atlanta’s Website- Digital BED

From zooatlanta.org |Zoo Atlanta Website| Zoo Atlanta Homepage: When I first open up the page, the first thing I notice is that the background is golden yellow. The majority of the page is filled with yellow, green, white, and brown. I also see a big panda, an owl, and a green snake at the top of the homepage, along with a hand-drawn picture of 2 beavers poking out of a hole at the bottom. At the top center of the page, there is a box labeled “News & Events” that displays a slide of pictures that reveal the different activities that are available at the zoo, and the pictures switch automatically. Below the picture slide, there are two boxes that are labeled “Headlines” and “Fun Facts”. The “Headlines” box has 3 topics that have a picture next to each link, while the “Fun Facts” box has a picture of a baby gorilla on the back of a big gorilla. This picture has a caption underneath that gives a fact about the animal in the picture. At the bottom of the page, there is another box that is labeled “Videos”. It is a video from YouTube of some lion cubs which can be watch directly from the this page.   Rates Page: Once I click on the tab “Visitor Info” then “Hours & Rates” in the drop-down menu, a page of the Zoo’s hours and ticket rates is shown. They give the time that it opens and closes and note a time for when they bring in the animals, close the food stands, and close the rides. Below “Zoo Hours,”...
