      My story/game can be accessed here:https://jm73923n.itch.io/escape-from-r-island This was an interesting assignment. I actually do know how to write html, however this seemed to behave a little differently than expected. In my mind while writing...

        Some of my best work!

        By Nancy Tavarez Comments (2)
        As I looked back on all the work we have done this semester, I realized that I learned a little something from all of it! From working with turtle blocks to coding in twine, I think it's safe to say that the overall experience was a fantastic...

          Working on Twine was a different experience! I enjoyed making my game because it gave me the freedom to be as weird and fun as I wanted! I loved that I could link two pages together and create different story paths. I especially had a lot of fun...

            The link to my pinboard is here: Final Portfolio Kudos to Dr. A for teaching me about the hidden "pin this" link in our posts! It's hiding between the "privacy" and "Edit" links. When your cursor turns into...

              Twine was a brand new language for me to learn and I struggled with it a lot. It took me a few days of simply reading through the tutorials and watching YouTube videos to understand how to even start working with this language. From the point of...

                  2 doors Twine at first was difficult to understand because I have never used it before. After doing some research with youtube and the tutorial I realized it was not as difficult as I thought. Twine uses html coding language and is a...

                  I can absolutely see why so many schools are thinking of making coding a "foreign language" equivalent to allow students to learn computer science without negatively impacting their schedules. Twitch is a great tool for creating the...

                    Final Reflection

                    By Maria Minafra
                         While looking through all the work I completed throughout the course, I was able to reflect upon how many new, useful things I learned throughout this course. I had such rewarding experiences learning about and tinkering with...

                      I believe that my best work from the course was the Week 2 assignment of using the Mbot Sensors. I think I did a great job using code to allow the mBot to sense its surroundings. I learned throughout the semester that technology can...

                        Code is Beautiful

                        Overall this experience was outside my comfort level because I wouldn't normally create a game as such. With that said, I enjoyed being placed outside of my comfort zone and exploring all that Twine had to offer. Twine was fun and easy to work...
