Media Computation Collages in AP CS

August 5, 2013 at 1:52 am Leave a comment

Nice to see AP CS teachers picking up Media Computation, and hope to see more of that when Barbara’s Picture Lab starts rolling out.  Myra Deister also sent me links to her AP CS students’ use of MediaComp.

We worked through several activities, focusing on filters and transformations. The students enjoyed seeing that they could write programs that performed some of the same features as Photoshop. The unit concluded with a collage project in which students combined several of their filters and transformations into a final and unique image.

I was extremely pleased to see that one of the new AP Computer Science labs, Picture Lab, was developed by Barbara Ericson and is based on her book. I think this new lab will bring an authentic and engaging series of activities to a wider audience.
