Visiting Ol Pa- Part I

For my longer story telling task, I chose to use Voicethread. I had known a bit about Voicethread before hand from the video I had to watch for my tech task #7, so I was already familiar with the purpose and benefits of this website. I had a bit of trouble starting, just like anyone who's first signs up for a new website, but after 5 minutes, I was going with the flow. I tend to have trouble speaking into the microphone, telling a story freestyle, so I wrote up quick sentences for each photo, much like a story board.
My story is based on a trip to Lumsden to visit Ivan's Ol pa. It was nice going through these photos, remembering summer, during the cold climate right now. Hopefully I can make a follow up story to this: Summer oh nine- Visiting Ol pa-part II. How epic is that!


  1. This is a very sweet/cute story. You make a good narrator.

  2. Oh geez... I always get incredibly embarrassed hearing my own voice!

  3. This great Alex. The photos are really nice and your narration is good too. I can agree, I find it weird to hear my own voice as well.
    Also, do you remember at McDonalds when they had chocolate and vanilla soft serve swirl? That was my child hood fav, but they dont have it anymore, whats up with that?!
