|Andrea the children's librarian|
We came up with a plan and documented it on Simpleminds (iPad app). He made appointments with the local librarian and convinced her to set up the club in the library. He then worked with the IT guy at the library to make sure everything was set up so the children could play on his server.
Huckleberry Hill is all about children manifesting a dream. Children are supported and helped as they try and make their dream happen. The process of making Tristan's dream happen involved learning a lot of new skills and exposure to different productivity tools that he will have in his tool kit going forward for future projects.
|Dale the IT guy|
Simpleminds App (iPad): brainstorming app, that allows you to record and remember your ideas, where you left off on a project and what is still needed to do. It is a great way to get back on track quickly after a break.
Google Sketchup (Mac): free 3D drawing tool that allowed Tristan to draw a building quickly and visualize how to build something in Minecraft.
Google Earth: (Mac): tool that allows you to see the ground that you want to map out (amongst other things) and draw a map that could be replicated in Minecraft.
Blogger: free blogging tool that he used to make his own blog to share his progress.
Notes (Mac): notetaking steps to making a server as a backup
Pages (Mac): Word processor to make the flyer for the library
All of these skills are transferable to his next project. Actually finishing a project and seeing your idea manifested is great motivation to start another project.

Now I am of course wondering what his next project will be.
