Today I got to visit Mrs. Milner's AP Graphics class in Dallas Texas via Skype! It truly is becoming a small world. We had a few technical difficulties, but I think it's because Skype is a relatively new technology. I hate to admit that I remember dot matrix printers and VCR's that cost $1000.00! It's very exciting to think that in the near future we can talk face to face with people all over the world. Today I felt like I was in the early days of a whole new way of doing things. It reminded me of the first telephones. It's hard for us to imagine what an impact telephones have had on the world. My grandmother has a photo album full of photographs of people she knew talking on their new telephones! It was such a novelty!
I hope Mrs. Milner's class learned a few techniques today. I had great fun in spite of the glitches! And now that I have a webcam, I'm hoping to make some "how to" videos of the art techniques I use. It looks fairly easy to do!
So Thank-you to Mrs. Milner!! It looked like you had a great group of students. I'm sure they'll make some great altered books!
