This week I am teaching a Flash animation camp for kids 10-15 sponsored by OETC . I have spent most of the day pondering my goals and looking over the proposed curriculum that I designed last May. More than any technique or skill mastery, I want these students to be creative, to feel competent that they can succeed and have fun!! This is not school – there is no grade, no evaluation or “assignments” to do. This is summer camp and the week is all about exploring, sharing, learning from each other, laughing, having fun and making “cool” flash animations.
I am bringing out my pirate hat, disco music and my favorite flash movies. Technology is fun. Flash is “wicked sweet” (as quoted by anonymous teenager).
Let the fun begin!
