May 7.2010 - Cabildo

Students at T H Harris were given the opportunity t make the past come alive with The Cabildo podcast project. The pored over books, skimmed web sites, and asked experts via Skype and in-person about the significance about their artifacts to create podcasts using IPods and computers. Twenty-first century tools helped make the sometimes ignored artifacts of the 18th and 19th centuries come alive for not only the students, but visitors to the museum in person and online The students’ joy and pride in their creations was evident to all who came to museum that day and proves that “real world” products do have a place in the education of all students. Please clicks below to see their works in progress and the final product as posted on the Louisiana State Museum web site.
