Nice work students! I loved the fact that now after doing this project students had skills for creating a computational artifact (which they will need in the AP task).
I had a student ask if they could make a children's book too with a metaphor about how the internet worked. Overall I was really impressed with my student's creativity in this project. It also showed me that students weren't really sure what "abstraction" was or what it meant to say that the internet was made of "open standards". It gave us an opportunity to go back and re-visit those topics. I actually had to do some more research myself on what it meant to say that the internet is "open" and found this video useful for my own understanding.
Thanks again for sharing your ideas and student work @joe_padon, I know I found it extremely helpful!
