Enjoying some cherished memories of my maternal grandmother this afternoon when taking moments to reflect upon the past. She was a first generation immigrant from Scotland who homesteaded with her family in central Wyoming...thus, the thistle and plaid box. Our history impacts our present and we are constantly creating history which will impact the future. Yet, we often aren't aware of such influence and responsibility.

Much of my day was spent with 10th grade Multimedia students discussing Creative Commons. Though there was emphasis on choice, responsibility, and sharing, we didn't delve much into the concept of 'building upon". It would seem that most innovations and creations have some sort of historical framework from which to build - it does give more meaning to studying history! Naples, FL

  1. Oral histories and artifacts contribute so much - and better to understand life of the past, not just wars and the powerful.
