Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Blog


We’re about to get started!

April 23rd, 2007 by Pete MacKay

Welcome to the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Blog! This latest telecollaborative project is a result of the efforts of students at Rutherford School in Edmonton, Alberta and students at Jasper Place High School, also in Edmonton. The project is being coordinated by Mrs Sandra Gluth, Consultant - Assistive Technology with Edmonton Public Schools. The students of Mrs. Terri Notdorft, Ms. Kathleen Maser and Mrs. Julia Walsh from Rutherford School are working with the students of Mr. Pete MacKay from Jasper Place High School.

The purpose of this project is to give the elementary and senior high school students an opportunity to work together in a telecollaborative nature to produce animated drawings of the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. The Rutherford Group have been studying this World Heritage Site and have written about ‘A Day in the Life of a Child at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump’. They then created drawings on their computers reflecting their research. The Jasper Place students will then animate the younger students’ drawings. This blog will be used to enable the two groups to discuss the animation plans. The high school group is using this opportunity not only to practice their animation skills but also to simulate a client-artist process of creation towards a common goal.

Please feel free to read the interactions between our students below. The final projects will be showcased in another website. You will find the link to that site in our BlogRoll.

VISITORS: Please feel free to comment on this posting instead of each of the projects.
