Pure Imagination

I was working in a school yesterday and came by this classroom. I felt like those kids entering the chocolate room in Willie Wonka’s factory.

Sketch on Smart

I was at 721K and a teacher demonstrated how to sketch on her new flat-panel Smart Board. She is herself a brilliant artist and watching her was hypnotic.

Puppet Pals

Several students worked with me to create little movies using Puppet Pals HD Director’s Pass software. It is one of my all-time favorite iPad apps. In video 1 a student and I voiced super hero characters about to jump into the sky; the characters were made completely of pipe cleaners (the student is a master of the pipe cleaner medium). In other videos, the characters are cut-out pieces of paper with scribbles of vegetables on them (the students did the scribbling). In video 5, I voiced a Victorian British curator who lives in the Underground; he has artists describe their work.

A teacher showed me a miniature computer that was made using a Kano board. It make blinking lights!

Also, they 3D printed out a housing assembly.
