A Week of Home Building

Our houses are turning out amazing!! It is so impressive to see the kids gain a basic mastery of such a complex piece of software. The absolute best thing in the world is to see the sense of pride each and every student has the moment they see their final movie. It's also cool that the kids appreciate what this software can do to such a great degree. The amount of hard work each student put into their homes has been very impressive.
Check back here later to see some samples of the final results. We just might have some architects, engineers, and landscape designers in this group.
Being able to learn a new software in a very short period of time is very empowering. It is one of the most important goals of having the students work with a complex software like Google Sketchup. My hope is that they continue to exhibit a willingness to learn new software and that they will, in the future, take advantage of the new opportunities and powerful ways to improve our own lives, which are afforded us, literally, by the day. The more we learn, the more we are able to see applications in our own lives. And, the more we can utilize technology to enhance and make easier what we do and how we do it.
