My group’s plan is to use Friday afternoons as well as the time we have when class does not meet to conduct research in Special Collections. We also plan to visit the church after Gene contacts them to inform them of our project.
As for the tool discussed in class Wednesday, I think they could be very useful. I have experience with timeline, and was thinking about using this tool to create a timeline of the Church. Storymap and Timemapper could be used to show various events such as the women’s march that the church has participated in. They could also be used to show other churches related to the ones in Asheville. Thinglink is also a cool tool that could be used for our oral histories. We could use pictures of congregations with tags giving quotes to the different members. We could also use Thinglink to show the purpose of different rooms in the church through tags on a map.
With these tools and my group’s study plan, I think that we are on our way to a great digital project!
