DEN STARs in the News: Nancy Sedlacko

Canadian DEN STAR Nancy Sedlacko’s 6th and 8th grade classes took on a pretty neat project during the school year that included the design of a playground.  The students presented the results of the year-long project, in which they brought their own tools to school, learned to use Skitch and Evernote, scanned QR codes for an assignment, created a site analysis, drew the lot to scale, learned to use Sketchup, and generated a to-scale CAD drawing of a playground, keeping within a very limited budget. They then rehearsed and refined their presentations (and presentation skills) before giving them before an audience.

Take a look at this great article that appeared online about the work Nancy’s been doing with her students.
