DEN Event: Capture the Inner Harbor

21.8 MB mp4 fileOn Saturday, April 29, 2006, Discovery Educator Network sponsored an event where educators converged on Baltimore's Inner Harbor to capture it. ... on film, of course! (I must warn you - this file's 21.8 MB)

Half of us learned how to make virtual tours with Google Earth, while others did the same using MovieMaker. A good time was had by all, and I collected enough photographs and movies for me to do several projects.

Sadly, the limits on a free Flickr account prevent me from posting everything there, but keep an eye right here and you'll see everything soon enough.

Capture the Harbor - First Impressions

HPIM3387.JPGWow! Yesterday I joined roughly 50 other educators in the DEN challenge to Capture the Inner Harbor.

Kudos go out to Rachel for organizing this spiffy event, although so many others helped that I really don't remember all the names I would have to list. If you head over to Rachel's blog in the next few days I'm sure you'll encounter more details.

As for myself, I took a bunch of pictures and videos. Some are uploaded already (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8), but I'm still working through the rest. One of our afternoon activities was to create a Google Earth sightseeing tour with our photos, and that's exactly what I'm going to finish up before I try to wow you with anything.

Great Quote

Yanked from Presentation Zen:
“A great teacher is one who realizes that he himself is also a student and whose goal is not to dictate the answers, but to stimulate his students creativity enough so that they go out and find the answers themselves.”
(I also have a podcast that's been brewing since Spring Break. No, really! I'll have it recorded soon.)

RSS Shuffling

techicnDue to reasons apparently beyond my control, those of you using Bloglines to subscribe to my feed have been getting the "plain vanilla" version. This is because I asked the good people at Bloglines to fix an unrelated bug, and in doing so they created this problem.

Since then they've proved less than helpful, but I do have a workaround. If you're using Bloglines and you'd still like to see the extra things I throw into my feed (pictures and links), then simply subscribe to the goodies below. If you're using a different RSS aggregator then don't worry about it - you're already seeing these things.
