Grade nine students from the Academy at King Edward read author
Gordon Korman's Dive! trilogy as part of their language arts studies.
In addition to several reading and writing activities, the students
used a basic computer paint application to recreate their favourite
scene from the novel which was then sent to grade 10 Hypermedia
students at Jasper Place High School. The high school students
dissected the drawings and animated them using Macromedia's Flash
application. A blog was used as a tool of communication and collab-
oration for the two groups of students until they had a chance to
meet face to face on January 18th, 2005 when the animations were
unveiled to both groups.
