Winter Traditions Collaboration (Grade 1 and High School)

Winter_TraditionsToday, my new friend, Brenda Cleland and I wrapped up a collaborative project that my ComTech 10 class and her Grade One class did together. The Grade One class (the Clients) have hired the high school class (the Freelancers) to animate their drawings. The students were paired up and assigned a blog post in which they were able to have a conversation in the comment section. The Freelancers asked the Clients how they wanted their drawings to be animated. They were not allowed to change the artwork in any way; it would be like changing a client’s logo! We hope you enjoy the results below. Be sure to read the comments in each blog post to get a feel for how well the two groups communicated without meeting in person.

And on that note, Mrs. Teacher List and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the coming year! Rest well and we’ll connect again in January.

Wissp: Beginning ActionScript

wisspMy pal, Angela Stolk, passed this site on the other day. I’m going to keep an eye on this new site as UK teacher and owner, Dexter Williams, add to his tutorial base. He starts with “Beginning ActionScript”, a series of lessons will “teach you the basics of ActionScript programming and show you how to start creating your own computer games or applications. Each booklet should take about 1 hour to work through and by the end you will be able to create your own Space Invaders game.” If what Mr. Williams ships in the future is as solid as this series, he’ll make very valuable contributions to CTF and CTS resources here in Alberta and around the world.
