This day is auspicious for me. Twenty-five years ago today I was student teaching at White County (TN) High School preparing for my future career as a high school chemistry, physics and math teacher. This day was a snow day. All of the student teachers gathered at the college to watch the first teacher in space go up in the shuttle, Challenger. I had SO wanted to apply for the program but since I was not yet an active teacher, I could not. I would love to go to space someday. Anyway, that story was on my mind this morning as I prepared this assignment so I used it to lead into the rest of my thinking about the articles and the nature of Web 2.0 Storytelling.
My tool: Voicethread. I uploaded images from Flickr using the FlickrCC search as well as images from NASA, which are also public domain and my own PowerPoint files and Word files for the images.
