Week Without Walls

"How can I share my experience of WWW using media tools?"

Create a reflection of your experience using a media tool / tools of your choice. For example, you may decide to create a Voicethread, an iMovie, Animoto or MakeBeliefComix. Whatever you do, remember to think of your audience and the skills of movie and image manipulation you've already learned.
Use your imagination and creativity to create your own brief - there are no restrictions other than finishing it in this lesson.
I have shared the Google Drive folder containing pictures from the week, as well as the blog containing many more photos - select those that match your purpose best.
Embed the finished piece in your blog and submit using the usual form.

We will be starting robotics after Week Without Walls. In order to be ready, follow these steps:
  • Install software for MAC (scroll down)
  • Open the software: if it prompts you to download Java, click MORE and follow the instructions.
  • Open Scratch and download the extension blocks using these instructions.
  • Watch the intro.
  • Answer this question in your blog: What do you expect from the Hummingbird robotics experience? Remember to put a creative title, tags and proofread carefully!
There are tutorials on the site if you get stuck, and of course we are all here to help!
