Abstract

Our research collaborative has been exploring movement computing educational technology experiences. That is, we have been building tools that simultaneously support both movement and computing learning objectives at entry-level. We will demo two products in development. danceON is a domain-specific language and a web app that allows users to create interactive graphics overlaid on video from pre-recorded or live (webcam) sources. softWEAR is a solderless and breadboardless ecosystem using sensors, LEDs, and the Adafruit Trinket M0. It is designed to support a workflow from ideation, prototyping, and iteration to a durable, wearable final project embedded into clothing or accessories.
