Thanks for sharing this link. I hadn't seen Andy's blog recently or followed this discussion. It is right on - the value is in the process students go through on so many levels of learning while they are beginning to learn programming through game development.. Thanks, again , for all your help with the SIGMM event - it was a wonderful day!
You can capture the video's with Cam studio. Then I import them into windows movie maker or IMivie where you can add transitions and titles. I have done the life cycle of the butterfly, ocean life, story elements, Anything the kids can draw and write about they can make a movie about. Try flip sticks and aniboom next:)
Lisa, too bad the online version of the recent Education Week article, titled: Networking Teachers Coaxing Colleagues To Use Technology, doesn't include the picture of you, like the print version does. It looked like you were having fun!
With your work in Technology for Haslett PS, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.
