The Project: Choose a family member or community member to interview. This could be a parent, aunt/uncle, grandparent, adult cousin, coach, family friend, religious leader, community leader, teacher, or other individual. Do not interview your brother/sister/best friend. Try to interview someone who comes from a group that is often ignored in history.
The Product: You will create a video, podcast, or essay about your chosen subject. You may NOT create a slideshow. No exceptions.
How to Record Your Interview The best all-around option for audio recording is SoundCloud. This app is available for Chromebooks as a Chrome extension, or as an app for iPhone or Android. You will use your school Google Account to sign up for an account. Your recordings (up to 3 hours) are automatically uploaded. For Android: Another option I've found for audio-only is VoiceRecorder-Dictaphone, a free app available for download HERE. It records in MP3 format and will sync automatically with your school Google Drive account to make uploading your recordings easy.
For editing audio tracks (including those recorded on SoundCloud): Twisted Wave is an audio editor that installs directly into your Chrome web browser. It syncs with Google Drive when you enter your school email address. You can download audio recorded with Soundcloud, then edit it using Twisted Wave.
