Since we were just talking about digital story telling in class I thought this site sounded pretty cool. I have always been a huge fan of pop up books. I love the way they allow for the reader to interact with the story in a low tech, artistic way. I was checking out the http://www.freetech4teachers.com/ and found this link to Zooburst. It "is a digital storytelling tool that is designed to let anyone easily create their own customized 3D pop-up books. Click on some of the pictures below to check out books created by members of the ZooBurst community." It was fun to look at the books that members created. To set up my own account I have to wait for approval by the site. They accept new members on a rolling basis, so I'll keep you posted when I hear more. There is also a blog that gives more information about zooburst. I hope I'm approved!!
I am a lot of things, but the main thing is that I see the world through the lens of the artist. I am visual and experiencing the world visually is what I do. Color distracts and enthralls me. I must be constantly learning and dabbling in new and different endeavors. I still have dreams that I will someday write a novel or at least a children's book (I'll illustrate it too!), open a tea shop/gallery and retire to a cottage near the water somewhere. I have a great imagination and I'm still curious about so many things.
