After spending the beginning of the year devising future plans, the past two months, we’ve been working with a group of high school students in Helsingin Suomalainen Yhteiskoulu testing and developing ideas for fun and approachable technology education concepts.
Projects the students are developing at the moment range from a platformer game to an epic multiple choice saga “Aliens Stole My Sister”, a random number generator and wintery multimedia stories. Starting next week, the students will polish up their projects and be paired with 9-year-olds for workshopping fun. Can’t wait!
New Year, new beginnings.. we take new year’s resolutions seriously - here’s what we are promising to do, what about you?!!
1) Advance step by step
Practice makes perfect. Done is better than perfect. And taking small but steady steps will accomplish those catch phrases. Starting with a promise to do 100 lines of code each month, gradual progress and continuous deployment are the watchwords of 2015!
2) Try new things
Unlocking new tech levels is not the only end game. In 2015 we vow to take up a new hobby project or two - not all needs to be professional, educational or goal-driven. Sometimes intricate Minecraft castles or DYI Twitter doorbells can be made just for fun.
3) Share the fun
In 2015, we’ll send regular updates, inspiration and ideas to you guys, students, educators and parents alike! Sign up to the newsletter.
Whoah, that’s the to-do list for the new year, to be held accountable. Have a sparkling 2015 everyone!
