Brainstorming: Phil Ochs Multimedia Timeline (Woody Guthrie Center)
- Today we will be brainstorming; assigning roles and responsibilities; setting up a communication plan and tentative deadlines.
- You will be assigned to a group and asked create a “sketch” for the story we want to tell about Ochs’s life via our timeline. Use a mind mapping tool and/or timeline app to sketch the project outlines and share with the group.
- For possible mind-mapping tools your group could use see: Harry Guinness, “10 Best Mind-Mapping Tools for Better Brainstorming.” EnvatoTuts+, 18 September 2017.
- I’d also recommend read-write-think’s rudimentary mapping tool to draft your ideas.
See the Resources page of the course blog or the Evernote Notebook on Ochs for resources that might be of use in the project.
