Italy - April 2016

Planning a return visit to Italy this spring (April 2016)
Check out options for tours and hotels here or under the Italy tab! 


We will be starting in Trastevere, Tuscany, Florence and Cinque Terre.

While teaching a class this week I showed a group of students how to add videos to an image using Thinglink.  I found an example of Italy, which allowed me to "remix".

The map above provides so many opportunities for us to plan and reflect.

Wrapping up our trip - sharing mobile blogging and video

We had a great week in Paris, Barcelona and Madrid.

This blog post is posted from by iphone for the purpose of sharing mobile multimedia for our spring multimedia course.

I created a video on my iPhone using iMovie but the hotel wireless will not let me upload. I will be posting tomorrow.

We are leaving Madrid this afternoon and heading back to Boston, ETA 6:30pm

A collage using PicStich on my phone and publishing to the the blog!

Nashoba Students travelled with Mrs. Carter and she also blogged on her trip.
Lots of fun!!

Note: This portion of the blog post (uploading the video to YouTube or Vimeo) could not be done with wireless, I had to connect my phone with the cable and browse the video to upload.
Here is the link to the Video (5 minutes) link here

Note: (YouTube Setting - This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing).

We will be working with Video, Mobile technology and the YouTube Video editor in May.
What will you create?
