Echoes of Feminism

Echoes of Feminism | Documentary Evolution |

"We need to solicit your efforts to fund and open a Gender Studies Museum in Madison, Wisconsin. To do so, you will be going back in time collecting artifacts from different people and events in history. Along the way you will learn about feminism and become part of the movement itself- but be careful! Just as women have constantly faced roadblocks in the quest to gender equality, you will also be faced with opposition. However, if you collect enough artifacts, the museum will open and another step will be taken to end gender oppression and inequality. Good luck."

Dow Day: a situated documentary - Mobile Learning Experiences

Dow Day: a situated documentary - Mobile Learning Experiences | Documentary Evolution |

The Situated Documentary starts from the assumption that the sounds and the images of the world in which we live in hide a historical past that we can discover and explore with technology.


Being in the same place in which particular historical facts occurred and being able to live what there is no longer constitutes a very important experiential conquest of the documentary genre.



❝The Situated Documentary allows learners to experience the recreation of a real life event (…) Situated documentaries work in harmony with technology to interact with information and to experience the world in new ways.❞
