"When the second grade students in Courtney Woods class were studying places tourists like to visit, they wondered how they could get more people to visit their small Canadian town of Bathurst. Their teacher knew this was a great idea and discussed with the class the importance of sustainable tourism. The class decided they wanted to help Bathurst become more of a tourist attraction and do so in part by connecting to the larger world so more people would know to come to their great home.
The class decided that they would use a tool called Photosynth to take digital pictures of the Promenade Waterfront. Photosynth provides a panoramic view with the ability to zoom into individual shops, services and attractions, allowing people to learn more about what the region has to offer. Students decided to compose and edit their own descriptions of each building in both French and English, representing the rich bilingual makeup of the community.
