Project Description

Capturing memories: Recording a family story

Students will set up an account on Soundcloud or Audioboom using their smart phone or computer. Students will then practice recording and uploading files to make sure they have the technique down. Once, you are comfortable, you will record a short interview about a family heirloom or photograph and upload to the streaming service you chose. You will then post the link to the project area.
