Day 5: Salpeter Article-Resources

After reading the article, "Telling Tales with Technology", check out the list of resources at the end. Choose one of the links to peruse through and report back on what the site presented. What sample stories did you view? What educational resources did you find to take back to your classroom/workplace? Since there are 10 of you, and 8 sources, we suggest that you read the comments first to see who commented on what site, and then pick one that was NOT discussed yet.

This may take a bit of time, so plan accordingly. The Scott County link doesn't work, but if you 'google' it, you can find the site.


Day 5: Recording and Narration

This coming Wed., we will be focusing on sounds, recording, and narration. What does the Ohler article explain about these areas and how do you propose you could incorporate that into your final work?
