Digital Booth Camp: July 13, 2011

I signed up to make a 2 minute creative video and decided to go for the digital booth camp instead.  I expect to learn how to promote my program in covergence with YAC students and community organizations.

In class, I will create the story and then decide how to distribute it, according to the intended audience and adapting the distribution methods to the times!

From the introduction yesterday, we will create a website that is interactive with all current digital forms in real time.  We will be working with a word press site that is free.  The interest will be in direct relationship with level of creativity, brevity, and inmediancy of the information. Basic Elements: Writing, pictures, videos. 
Blog:  One paragrah...during the event
Web: 3-4 paragraphs...two hours after
Mediacast: one-three day after
Follow-up: 3-4 paragraphs...weekly
Newspaper: 250-500 words ...once per issue  ( Rolling Stone without music) quaterly and in color
Wrap-up: 350 words, post event, print or web
Yearbook: Tells the story...event end..flash drive, dvd, digital video soon to be added.

Make students personally accountable for what they will generate in class and do not blame the bread, blame the breadmaker if people do not come to your site!

FTP File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host to another over a TCP-based network, such as the Internet. FTP is built on a client-server architecture and utilizes separate control and data connections between the client and server.[1] FTP users may authenticate themselves using a clear-text sign-in protocol but can connect anonymously if the server is configured to allow it.
The first FTP client applications were interactive command-line tools, implementing standard commands and syntax. Graphical user interface clients have since been developed for many of the popular desktop operating systems in use today.

A HOST IS NEEDED:  Word Costly, do not use.  Word Great support. USE IT. is another.  Do not place this host in the district server.  Word is free, has good support and has built in a mobile component
My workshop guardian angel was  Mitchell Franz offered to help with videos:, My teacher was Jake Palenske  Jake's task was to empower us to create a website like  

Class process: Jake created the FTD for us and helped us input all the database information to create our own.  then he taught us how to get fetch.  Finally he gave us the directives to create a subdomain in his
