In Spring 2013, the Montessori students learned to use TurtleArt, a program designed to allow the user to create images on the computer. The user creates images by making a series of commands for the turtle to follow, including simple commands like “Right” and “Forward,” and more complex commands like “Arc” and “Repeat.” The kids mastered all these commands and more, learning the basics of geometry and computer programming. In their final projects, the students were instructed to create their an original design using all the commands they’d learned throughout the semester.Check out their practice images and final projects below:
During the Summer of 2012, 4th- 6th graders from Montessori Magnet School created a short video about themselves using Windows Movie Maker. They also learned to use the webcam to take picture, get images from the internet and manipulate these images on Photoshop. Here is examples of their work!
