It is August 7th and this is the last week I am in Chicago. It is just like what Michael said - Time flies.
I have been working on the flash animation since last post. I feel like that I am learning a new skill along with working on it and this is very encouraging to me. I always like leaning new things. Let me show you the current progress.
The little figure attached to the track moves along the track and it is just a loop. The 4 colors indicate the 4 diferent phases in the service learning process which is boosted by Tutor/Mentor connection. What I am looking forward to do is to add some interactive things like buttons to make it more user-friendly and easy to understand.
BTW, the idea of "track" to demonstrate the concept was brought up by Dan. He said the idea came up to him when he watched kids playing video games. This is really interesting that we can extract some creative ideas from daily life to help what we are working on.
If anyone of you happen to have some good idea on it, please tell me!
This is not the last post I make here. I will let you know more if I finish the flash later in this week, and I will keep updating after I leave Chicago.
