10 apps I downloaded for #SCMS2015

I like to prep for a trip by downloading a bunch of apps that are specific to my destination. Here’s a list of the apps I downloaded for #SCMS2015 in Montreal. I haven’t tried them in action yet, because I’m not in Montreal, but I did some scanning through them to assess whether or not they’re useful. They’re all for iPhone.

MAPS and GUIDES

There are a few different METRO maps, but this app here allows you to map routes. This “Map and Walks” app is a little dorky, but I did find some places I’d like to visit while scanning through it.

This guide has social media, but you need in-app purchases to make it fully functional. The next two are official tourism sites: official sites always have useful info.

CULTURE and LOCATIVE MEDIA

FRANCAIS

Je n’ai pas etudier le francais depuis 20 ans. So, I figured this would be handy. It cracks me up that one of the phrases it will auto-speak for you is:

“Ces drouges ne sont pas a moi!”

Add apps that you think might be useful in the comments! A bientot!

Declaration of Sentiments 2015

Declaration of Sentiments 2015

ds17a

This video was recorded in the historic Wesleyan Chapel at the National Women’s Rights Historical Park in Seneca Falls, NY. In the video, you can read along with a chorus of voices as they recite the Declaration of Sentiments, the foundational document of Women’s Suffrage. A series of still images record the reverence and excitement of the speakers who were standing at the podium where Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott once stood. Many of the speakers were in town to present at the 2014 Seneca Falls Dialogues Conference.

The video was shot by faculty and students from Hobart and William Smith Colleges (HWS): Leah Shafer, Molly Naef, Amber Williams and Julia Yenco. Funding for the project was provided by the William Smith Deans Office and the HWS Office of the Provost.
