Created by Teachers for Teachers and Students

Teacher Created Materials is a family owned company that began in the garage of a teacher 37 years ago. Our founder, Rachelle Cracchiolo, envisioned creating a company focused on one vision: To Create a World in which Children Love to Learn. All our materials and resources are Created by Teachers for Teachers and students with this vision in mind.

2) Ricoh Theta S

3) Robotics

“Robotics is the next step. Over the past few years, the market has witnessed the rise of robotic tools -- like Sphero, Wonder Workshop and Lego Mindstorms -- that teach students how to code. At its core, robotics moves students away from the solitary interface of a computer screen and into an active social community. Not only does the space of the student's world increase in size, so do the benefits that computer science has to offer.”

3) Robotics

TASK:

Play with the BB-8 Sphero and program it to complete the path and get as close as you can to the bull-eye.

4) Green Screen

Through the magic of video effects and technology, you can superimpose your subjects onto virtual backgrounds, place them over animated digital backdrops or transport them to a desert oasis. The secret to pulling your subject out of the real world and placing him or her into a digital domain is chromakey, and that means going green

4) Green Screen

Task:

Create a video using some of the props

Google Drive folder with Green Screen type backgrounds I have curated
