Site 1: Social Chronicle – Digital Time Capsule
The digital time capsule establishes a historical relationship between the community partner and the local community. The time capsule includes a collection of memorabilia documenting a place, organization, events over time in the community. It is a multimedia scrapbook containing records and mementos, including born-digital and digitized versions of physical keepsakes. Time capsule images are pieces of art, photographs, political cartoons, propaganda posters, or original visual images. The goal is to develop awareness of historical transitions and to develop critical thinking skills. A musical genre(s) most closely related to the community is applied. The descriptive nature of lyrics will “sound like the community.” Musical selections are embedded into the digital time capsule using music links or video clips.
