Creative Students

Sometimes students do surprise you in a good way.

Some time ago in a programming class, an assignment specified some tasks involved with image manipulation. The tasks were just simple basic ones, things like making the image a little lighter, darker, a red filter, etc. etc.

At the end of the assignment I'd put a creative section, where students could think of their own transformations to make to the images. Many students did some fairly unimaginative things, like green filters, enlarging the image, but one submission was memorable, with a 3D version of the original image. It did look 3D through those red & blue glasses, too. Cheered up my marking no end, that did!

Quite what my colleagues thought of the request for those red and blue glasses for marking purposes, I don't know.
