The APAC ADE Institute had a lot of fun learning about SwiftUI with this new project. We enjoyed the challenge of figuring out how to create glasses like mine, and had a great chat about how this can be integrated into lots of different areas of the curriculum.

👓 I am quite proud of my glasses! I can't wait to see what educators created.

I have just completed this with my Year 9 Digital Technologies students (14 years old) as an introduction to SwiftUI on the iPad. My students worked on this project over a couple of lessons. They were actively engaged and motivated to complete their self-portraits, and I dare say they enjoyed the experience! The project presentation made it incredibly easy to teach the fundamentals and get the students up and away.

Thanks Johnny, looks like your students had a lot of fun! Looking forward to hearing about what they create next.

I missed out on this workshop at the ADE Institute in Dallas and was suffering from major FOMO! So, I completed it on my own time :) I feel more comfortable using stacks, shapes, and modifiers. I can't wait to try this with my Girls Who Code!
