Introduction - John

jjred.png Thanks to Geoff for the invite to post here. I am John Johnston a class teacher at Sandaig Primary in Glasgow, I usually blog at John @ Sandaig Primary, sometimes about flash.
I've used flash with children to create animations some using Geoff's templates (I've made some worksheets on flash for children ).

I've used flash to make wee games for children and to display work and children's video on our website. I occasionally try things that are too ambitious.

I've mostly used flash 5 and MX with children, I've upgraded to flash 8 at home but haven't really figured out the difference between Actionscript 1 & 2 never mind Actionscript 3. As I don't use flash every week (or even month) I often feel I am going back to the beginning when I open it up.

I am interested in children using flash for fun, and teachers using it to create resources for children (and having fun). I look forward to joining in the conversation here.

John,
I immediately spotted that the walking template was an improvement on mine as it looked a lot better with bent arms and legs!

Loved the fish and the playing about with names - Don't children (we all!) love having our names up in 'bright lights'

Thanks for all this - I hope you're savinf so stuff for future posts!

John is obviously an old hand at blogging - I still can't figure out how to put in links into the text my postings. - I saw the edit screen come up that enabled this ONCE and never again - can't figure how - yet.
