    Very creative Jing. I do think it is very interesting. I like the idea of creating something from something else. Kind of like digital re purposing in a way. Do you see a use for mashups in a library setting?

      Yes, I think if mashups are used efficiently in a library setting, a lot of data will be alive!

    Well done Jing 🙂 I agree with Anita, it is very creative and I like how they all seem to connect in on each other as they all seem to reflect upon forms of transport. I also find it interesting incorporating the black and white with the coloured images (especially how I assumed that the horse and carriage would be an older image yet is in colour, whereas a tram which is in one of the black and white images are still functional today – seems like an inverse of technology represented through the images). It is very good 🙂 Do you think that mashups would be helpful as a type of learning experience tool in a classroom?

      Thank you for your praise, Ruth! But I didn’t have time to figure out how to change the color yet. I will try it in the future if I need to. 🙂 The colorful images were not older than two years.
      You’ve asked a good question! I think mashups could be very helpful as a learning tool. For example, some people is more clever to learn with moving pictures, then if the teacher use the mashups, the teaching would be more effective for them. People all have different intelligence. That’s why many prep students, who are in Brisbane, know 5 senses to help them to learning now!
