Six Weeks LeftPosted: May 1, 2008
WOW! I am constantly amazed with the creativity being demonstrated by many of you in the Graveyard exercise and the other activities. Please keep it up as it makes the classroom environment exciting and humorous. A new feature in Alice is the Custom Character Creation mode. If you go to the end of the people objects menu there is an option for he builder and she builder. Create yourself or your classmate and drop them into a world of your own making.
Please remember that when you miss a class, it is your responsibility to ask about makeup work. If you miss a quiz, an assignment, or anything else, you must see me. Here is the tentative schedule for the next few weeks:
Friday-May 2-Tech Current Event Discussion-COMPUTERS OFF!!!!!
Monday-May 5th-Continue Alice Graveyard
Tuesday-May 6th-Graveyard finishes up
Wednesday-May 7th-Tech Current Event Quiz-Start work on your own world. Remember that I am looking for as much creativity as possible. This is the time when you get to demonstrate everything you have learned through trial and error, tutorials and questions.
Thursday-May 8th-Work on your own world in Alice
Friday-May 9th-Work on your own world. After finishing, please save as I will be grading them. Then move to this link: http://www.cg-files.com/draw_a_head_flash_tutorial.html
