My students need 10 Android tablets and 5 Android phones to learn computer science by coding Android apps, fashion design tools to investigate computer aided design.
We're expanding our hive of activity to include projects in computer science by developing Android apps, and fashion design via computer aided design! My students have proven that their learning preference is project based so the technical skills used in many industries are learned hands-on.
My students are creative geniuses, whose interests are not often catered to in regular subject classes.
In Room 128 we find ways to marry our personal interests with the technology skills of 21st century jobs, so an aspiring rapper will create their own website and now program their own app, a budding fashionista/o will will also create their own website to feature their design style, explore computer aided design in the fashion industry, and an artist will feature their photographic inspiration on their website. Our school focuses on the whole child and connections to academics and the community, so each student can find their talent and set post-secondary goals. We are adding computer science formally to our curriculum, and this project is the first step in exploring curricular ideas. The sky's the limit with the new tools this project will bring to our classroom.
In Room 128 we find ways to marry our personal interests with the technology skills of 21st century jobs, so an aspiring rapper will create their own website and now code their own app, a budding fashionista/o will will also create their own website to feature their design style, explore computer aided design in the fashion industry, and maybe code a runway show with characters showcasing their designs, and an artist will feature their photographic inspiration on their website. I have included coloring materials so we can return to the creativity of our younger selves, and organizing materials to keep our classroom organized. I'm so excited in anticipation of the ideas envisioned by this project and to add computer science to our school's academic offerings!
This project will make a difference because it brings computer science & programming careers to my students.
Students will program Android apps and games that can run on their personal phones! Students will design fashions that can be sewn by professionals! Students will engage in the creative and technical processes of future possible comp sci careers at an age prior to entering formal education in those fields. But most importantly, this project brings more career ideas to our class hive.
