Creating Reflective Digital Stories to Examine the Role of Place in Environmental Outllook

The connection between personal memory and the intensity of feelings about the natural environment plays a large role in the development of one's environmental consciousness. Students were asked to identify a place in nature that holds some strong personal memories for them. Using Nokia N95s, the students were required to capture still photos of this place and were asked to reflect on what made this place important to them. Using Adobe Premiere Elements, the students constructed digital stories that explained the role this place has played in developing their own environmental consciousness.

The Arthur Kill

Clover Lakes

Wildcat Ridge

Delaware River

"The Pond"

"The Beach"

"My Backyard"

Two more examples from the Fall 2010 class, which used the Nokia N97 and Premiere Elements.
