We have Stone Age emotions,
medieval institutions,
and godlike technology.
It's a very dangerous mix."

This was my first year running this course and I clearly underestimated the ambition and ability of my kids. We've blazed through the curriculum I had planned way ahead of schedule and will be finishing our final unit by the end of the first or second week of May. To give you an idea of what we have done so far, here are some of the major applications/skills we have covered (there were also various other smaller creative and research based projects interspersed throughout):
> 
> -Adobe Photoshop: basic editing, masking, and blending techniques for various products.
> -Adobe Premiere: editing video and audio tracks to create original films and recreate scenes from existing films with a focus on camera work and shot composition.
> -Adobe Dreamweaver: basic organization, design and development for websites.
> -VR: creating a virtual tour of our school consisting of 360-panoramic images links to an interactive map.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what we might explore in the remaining month of school or even possibly some successful units/projects you've executed in the past and would be willing to share?
