Light Writing : A tool for Primary One?


Graffiti Analysis 2.0 (Digital Blackbook) - BLK River (Vienna) from Evan Roth on Vimeo.

Another low cost tool from Evan Roth that has huge potential in education. Just think how this could be used with P1 & 2. 

The soon to be released software will be free, a web cam, a light source with pen and a computer is all that is required. We will post a link to the software when it is available.

 “Art is a tool of empowerment and social change, and I consider myself blessed to be able to create and use my work to promote health reform, bring awareness about ALS and help others.”

Tony Quan, aka Tempt One

Evan Roth's projects are deeply rooted in the Urban Graffiti movement. However, this low cost eye tracking technology, could have a much wider use, particularly in education.

Storyboarding tool for Education : iStoryBoards


If you need another reason why the iPod Touch should have a camera, then Oscar Stringer has just given you one with the launch of his photographic storyboarding tool - iStoryboards.

Getting students to understand the importance of planning their movie /animation is one thing. Getting them to create a useful storyboard is another. This application not only makes the process easy, but, by having a slideshow mode that allows you to add music, the storyboard becomes a production in itself. Great work Oscar.

Oscar is an Apple Distinguished Educator.

Music makes such a difference to students movies and presentations, but it needs to be from a legal source. This probably means you have two options, the students create the music themselves with GarageBand ( or similar) or you source royalty free music.
