Doing the Daily Create (Riding the Wave of Change)

Riding the Wave of Change conference • May 15, 2014 • Gimli, Manitoba


Here is a not so secret method for how to be successful at anything. Practice it every day. But there’s more to sustaining this then repeating it for 10,000 hours. That’s boring. We have something in the DS106 Open Digital Storytelling course that has helped people improve their creativity and imagination. The Daily Create is modeled the defunct Daily Shoot, which offered a daily challenge designed to help people practice their photography skills. Since 2012, the ds106 Daily Create has offered a daily creative prompt in written, photographic, drawing, audio, and video form. These challenges are low to no stakes and encourage participants to try things that may have never done before. What makes this different from exercising or learning to play the saxophone is that the Daily Create is fun, open, and generates connections between people around the world. And you can modify the same approach to any subject.
