26 March 2013 Technology and a trip to the Museum
Wow! Talk about a busy day. Today began with a lot of interesting information about photography and taking good pictures for journaling. Teacher Bill Schmoker gave us some excellent tips about taking good photos to tell a story. Have you ever thought about being a photographer or using photographs to tell a story?
Then, we went on to talk about using video. I think that creating, shooting, editing, and publishing a video is such a cool process. It takes a lot of time, but when it is done well, it can be a really powerful product. I have a lot of new respect for videographers and others involved in making movies.
Museum of the North
Then, we were off to the Museum of the North at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks. It's a fascinating place detailing the rich natural, economic, political and social history of Alaska. I've been there before, but every time I go there I see something new. Check out some pictures from the adventure...
UAF Experimental Farm
The University of Alaska Fairbanks maintains an experimental farm, complete with a reindeer herd. We visited this facility when I was here in February 2011. It was a treat to stop back at a location that I recognized.
