I need to give students access to the good old ‘easy mode’.
Hard mode is what we are doing. Take a project template, customize it and build it. Many students going in many different directions. But for many reasons, this quarter it is just not working.
So tomorrow there is choice. We are in hard mode. You can choose to stay in hard mode with infinite choice and customization. Just explain your idea and how you have already started.
Easy mode will be a project that we all complete together.
There is a lot of improvement to be made and this feels more like a step backward. No-one ever said it would be easy though.
I still have to hope that someday, when the dust has settled and Innovative Arts is up-and-running, all of this struggle will be well worth it.
