In Spring 2018, Fairbanks-based media production instructor, Ira Hardy, traveled to Eagle to work with the school’s principal/teacher, Kristy Robbins. Ira taught media production to four students via a pilot Multimedia Storyboarding Class. With the help of colleague Jayme Dittmar, a photojournalism writer with experience in online media timeline formats, Ira worked with students to successfully produce an online interactive media timeline program titled, The Eagle History Project. This pilot project launched a spring 2018 A-CHILL MEDIA Pilot Project: Digital Storytelling/Media Blog Technique lesson as part of the Alaska Culture & Dog Mushing Class in three more schools that school year.
For the 2018-19 School Year, A-CHILL is excited to offer the Local History Project course at the middle and high school levels. See the Course Catalog for details.
