Digital Learning Day at The Edge
February 6, 2014 by Audrey Homan
Here, a 2013 Code Camp attendee explains how he used the web development skills he learned there to build a website about animation and programming
As part of celebrating Digital Learning Day yesterday, we visited The Edge team at Essex Middle School for their annual Project Fair, where students share their learning with the community. Here’s a look at some of the amazing work on display.
One group of students was using an iPad to remotely monitor the development of a clutch of hatching chicks.
This student, inspired by a trip to Winooski Mill, replicated a water mill in Google Sketch-Up as part of a lesson plan he created for others wanting to learn Sketch-Up.
One student used her iPad to produce stop-motion animation for sharing online.
A group of students collaborated on building a Minecraft game about sustainability. In the game, you enter a world where electrical power is dying out, and you must slay the monster stealing it.
A pair of students researched the history of space exploration, as well as its future, and produced a presentation on the topic, which they gave to a local Cub Scout troop and a class of 3rd graders.
