Sometime ago, in a course for my Masters, I had an assignment to create an animation. Two programs were recommended; those being Scratch from MIT and Stykz. I attempted both and found them difficult to use and felt that I didn't have the time I needed to learn them. So I set off on a task to find another animation tool that was Web 2.0 friendly. I made the animation and completed the assignment and never looked back. Until recently...
The curriculum director came to me a few weeks ago and asked if I was interested in taking a two workshop on Scratch and whether I would teach a game design class for the coming school year. Not being one to turn something like this down I jumped at the chance! We will see where this journey takes me.
I attended the workshop over the last two days and this is my attempt to embed a finished product that I created during the training. I hope to find additional ways to share the animations and games that are produced.
