Campfires and Candlelight - extra credit

To earn 25 points extra credit:

Attend Campfires and Candlelight for at least two hours, preferably after the candles are lit, say from 7 p.m. on (the event ends at 10 p.m.). I say this because Campfires and Candlelight takes place at the fort from 3 to 10 p.m. on Sept. 18, but the action really doesn't get going until later in the evening. And it's much more spectacular at night.

Anyway, during that time, think of the event from the perspective of a mobile device user, imagining what you would want to be doing with your device while experiencing this activity. That could range from stories you would like to know more about to interactive games you might like to play with the costumed interpreters (I, for example, think it would be interesting to have the interpreters engaged in the sub-activity, maybe providing verbal clues or such to allow the mobile users to have a digital adventure, while the non-mobile users are unaware of what's happening in the ether).

In your Google Group post afterward, minimum of 250 words, share your observations from the site, demonstrating that you did indeed attend and think deeply about the possibilities, and share one example of an idea you would try if the fort came to us next year and said it would like to hire our team to enhance its biggest annual event through digital stories.

Any questions?
