Prep Week

Posted on January 7, 2013


So! New Academic Year is beginning, with new adventures: the four-week “concept builder” module that I’m helping build, trying out Dreambox assuming we can get things rolling in time. Okay, trying out software isn’t new, but this is the first time the software has students actually manipulating non-symbolic objects on a screen — if I could invent terms for it I’d have a PhD thesis, eh?
I got a few hours into the Java tutorial and … I think I’ll take the college course in the fall and the apps development course in the Spring … which will leave this semester open for making mad animations 😉
Yes, I really did stick my LiveScribe pen in my ear for hours on my drives and listen to Java tutorials and my notes from my animation class. Yes, I am going to spend at least two of tomorrow’s hours applying creative kinestasis to the number line 🙂
