Progress Report Final Project!
For this project, I have joined up with Kim Holland. She is very creative and we have been working on school projects together for a little over two years now. For this project we really wanted it to be something that could include almost everything Dr. Strange has taught us this semester--so this brought us to the idea what better than a Glogger. Now Kim, is a very avid Mardi gras fan and so she suggested we do a glogger on the History of Mardi Gras in Mobile. I was absolutely tickled! In doing this project we have visited the archives of south to find ancient pictures of when Mardi Gras was at its beginning peak, with some connection with Kim's family we have gotten access to many cool things that make up Mardi Gras as we all know it today! Secondly, Kim and I went and produced a video clip from the Mobile Carnival Museum, which is the Mardi Gras museum downtown mobile, we really got into this video learning a lot and had so much fun doing it! The Glogger has been giving a little bit of trouble through our editing process, for we had most of it finished then lost it all--seems to be typical of any new technology, but no sadness here we are back up and running waiting on the finished product! In addition to the things listed above Kim called me a couple of days ago and suggested we get our faithful lab technicians Anthony and Stephen to Podcast a section on the historical figures of our presentation! This should be a great project when all said and done! It has been wonderful and we have sure learned a lot!! Hope you enjoy the finished product!!
