5-minute visualization:

At the end of class I asked you to put your instincts and faculties at work by visualizing a short gift-giving story. You can find this little story in the slides (which you can find above). You can also, instead, take the xml-snippet, that represents a similar story in a different data format.

Please take some pen and paper, read the story (or xml) for 2 minutes, and then draw it out in 5. If you take much longer than that, you are probably overdoing it.

Please digitize your drawing (take a photo) and upload it through Brightspace on Thursday 15-9 at the latest, so that I have time to look at them. The assignment will not be graded (although it may or may not count towards your class participation), but we will discuss them in class!
