I was totally overjoyed that four of my students at Sunset Ridge School would present with me at the Illinois Computing Educators annual conference. I would like to personally thank Mrs. Lisa Mattera, who accompanied the boys on Thursday, and Lynn, a parent, who accompanied the two students on Friday. They did such a fabulous job, many other educators came to me how incredible they were. I think more educators should try to present with students. The students have so much to offer.
The first student presentation was on Thursday, IN A FLASH. Two sixth grade boys, actually did the presentation. They know much more than me concerning flash. They have created a website using iWeb, but with flash games, polls, and much more – www.lazertron.net It has over 2,000 hits in four months!
The eighth grader, has composed and performed her composition. She currently is working on a four composition “Seasons.” You can view her first composition, Spring Storm and her movie “Spring Storm.” She is completing her suite before she graduates.
The sixth grade boy has composed a story using only music, no words: SuperChord. He has a website that talks about the movie and the composition. www.chordsville.com He is currently working on SuperChord II and SuperChord III. Here is his composition for the first SuperChord.
I want to personally thank these students for enriching the conference with their knowledge and creativity. Thanks:)
