This is the course description information:
Title: Celebrate Kansas Voice: Digital Storytelling for K-12 Teachers
CKV is a statewide digital storytelling project empowering learners to become digital witnesses, archiving local oral history and sharing that history safely on the global stage of the Internet. Our project is starting in 2010, based on the successful Celebrate Oklahoma Voices project which started in 2006.    

Participation in all three days of this educational workshop is required. In addition, each participant is expected to CREATE AND SHARE AT LEAST one digital story WITH STUDENTS in the six month period of time following the workshop. Our goal is that you will USE the knowledge and skills you gain in this workshop, and actually help students CREATE digital stories by interviewing local veterans or others in your community. Optionally, you can apply to co-teach / facilitate a "Celebrate Kansas Voices" for other teachers as well as students, if desired. We expect you to CREATE and SHARE at least one digital story made with students following your participation in this workshop.

Hi, While I am not interested in college credit, I am interested in becoming a trainer for Kansas. Any information on that?
It will be discussed during the workshop this week.

A Framework for Understanding the Future (Excerpt from http://bit.ly/omEPyD)

The study of the future is very sparse in both philosophy and theory. Theories (which may also be seen as mental or analytical models) provide a framework for forecasts and give them a credibility that increases managers’ willingness to take calculated risks. In addition, they can help us utilize our knowledge of demonstrated trends, interactions, and causes to better anticipate the future. The theories do not have to be rigid, but they do need to provide an explicit framework that can be modified, expanded, and even rejected by experience.

To that end, I have been working on a set of theoretical principles for futuring from the point of view of an applied historian. I offer them now as working guidelines until others can offer better.
Five Principles of Futuring as Applied History in Futuring by Stephen M. Millett @ http://bit.ly/omEPyD

A historian and futurist offers a theoretical framework for developing more credible and useful forecasts.
The goal is to help individuals and organizations improve long-term foresight and decision making.

When I was working on my doctorate degree in history, people would quip:
“Why study history? There’s no future in it!”
