Student Kiosk - Making Images with SnagIt

Comment on Alfred's FDG 2009 Day Three Post

An additional idea is to work with your campus art teacher(s).  In fact, I was just approached by our art teacher to do some work with me on animations next year.

They are used to very high level graphics. Often when we talk about helping them to create games they get disappointed with what results they get. This leads to boredom and frustration and students leaving the program.

I'm a big proponent of getting them hooked with cool user interfaces and cool graphics.  It's why I love languages like Visual Basic and C#.  I know you can do Java that way but it is SUCH a pain in the rear and it is so easy with VB and C#.

Still REALLY wishing I was there!  Next year!
