6th grade students just finished their “Animation” project. This is a very exciting project, they are using their artistic abilities in creating their own cartoon characters. they have to come up with a situation and learn about technology. It has been a challenge working with shared laptops. 6th grade students are not as lucky as 7th and 8th grade students. They have to share 1 set of laptops for the team. They each have an account on the school server. We had to work through many little kinks and they had to be patients. Our motto this past week is “Go with the FLOW!” Some students had to visit Mr. Cram our technology specialist with problems like logging on to the server, running out of space on the server, retrieving password. On October 26, 2010, we had our first animation. It is now on the Art pagenjoy!
I welcome any comments from my students and parents.
