Paper Commands

This class of five students familiarized themselves with arrow commands: move forward, turn left, and turn right. They are made of paper, though I really should laminate them.

This was used to introduce the beebot emulator website, which also uses arrows to command the beebot. But first, I modeled the beebot using Notebook software.

The students took turns using my bluetooth touch pad to command the beebot.

Hacked!

Dear OOTTC,

It finally happened! A PD I was giving this morning — Digital Art, Digital Music for D75 Teachers and Students — was rudely interrupted by a private caller who yelled curses, profanities, expletives, and [additional synonym for cursing here].

Trying to mute and/or eject the “Google Meet-bomber” was like playing the wack-a mole- game…each eject brought him/her back in again.

Finally, a participant in the workshop, who works for DIIT said to shut it down, which we did. It was going so well though…

Workshop is rescheduled for later on in the week!

No Gym, but a Condo Library

This library is located down from the main lobby. Finally a building that has its priorities straight.

Frog

This is a demonstration of a making a frog jump using the software Animation-Ish. It is running at 8X speed.

I saw it at Scholastic Corporation HQ in SOHO.

Rock

Shred

So much shredding. I want to pile it up and jump in.

Of course, we can always pull an “Argo” to see what secrets are within.
