Day 5: Computing EN PLEIN AIR and IN SITU

On day 5 we had a lot of fun taking the animations and displaying them in-situ, and sharing the students’ work with some of their parents.

Taking animations and interactive sketches into the field feels much more full and contextual than just keeping them in the white / black cube where they are produced.

With the mobility of the netbooks, and the speed with which the students can now rapidly prototype SCRATCH animations I hope we can do entire sessions in the fields / waterways / alleways of the neighborhood.

Impressionists painted en plein air in part because of new paint technology, and I am glad that this generation of networked eco-technologists can do digital storytelling in the field as well.
