Bootcamp Ends!

Congratulations to all our CLAM students for successfully completing the intensive pre-trip classes. Each student showed amazing progress toward integrating cultural awareness and compositional ideas with new media technologies. And now... the real learning begins!

The blog links in the right column will reveal the ongoing engagement of our students in the cultures of their host programs. Across the next few months, and around the world, these blogs will describe CLAM student's understanding, discovery and integration of new cultural awareness.

So, students... go ahead, blog your experiences with photos, video, diary entries, interviews, news clips and other artifacts. We will be watching!
