Imagination Codes teaches children about the creative arts, design thinking and leads them to be creative problem solvers using modern tools. There are learning modules around many of the creative arts, such as poetry, movement & dance, music, design thinking, communication and storytelling. Each module has an offline (collaborative classroom) version and a solo online version, perfect for self guided learning as well as classroom or group activities.
I worked with Amelia Winger-Bearskin to develop a prototype system for building online modules, targeted at teachers with less technical experience. By collecting a simple set of files together including text written in markdown, code snippets, and videos, teachers and developers alike can make online educational modules quickly and easily. In addition, I assisted in developing and testing a generative poetry module that used color-coded words to build simple algorithms for creating sentences and poems.
