2 Sheridan Presentations for the 2018 Conference
We have always had good luck in the prize department. This year didn't disappoint. So excited for my LEGO lover, E, to have won an early drawing and the LEGO Ninjago movie! If you haven't attended the conference before, students earn SIT bucks for asking good questions and participating in the sessions.. They then get to enter drawings with the SIT bucks and hope for a win. Even better the students who present are entered in special drawings for even larger prizes.
Our first presentation of the day was given by C and K. They presented on how to build your own video game using Bloxels. They did a great job preparing for their session by designing their own characters, villains and map of the game layout. The participants in their session were very engaged with the chance to build different parts of the game and put them all together in the end for a collaborative game. We have learned over time that the best sessions are those that allow the participants to do hands on work with the subject.
The second session of the day was presented by J and A. They taught a packed room how to build their own holograms using DoInk apps. Our team taught students how to draw and design with the DoInk Animation app and then how to duplicate and animate. The results were amazing and the participants loved getting to create their own holograms in small groups.
