For this project I used a Flora with an RGB sensor to create a color display in Processing.
Makey-Makey in my class
This semester I’m teaching Digital Media Art and I had my student experiment with the Makey-Makey. The theme of the project was “synesthesia” and students added sound to colors in their drawings to experiment with new visual/audio connections.
I swear I actually printed this but it was so awesome that it immediately disappeared. This is the third time that’s happened this semester, which is high praise for your class 🙂

Collaborative Project: Digital Story Cards
Based on existing knowledge of fairytales, students will create a story, describing characters, actions and settings.
- Storytelling Cards are introduced, students practice telling stories using the images on the cards as cues
- Students draw out scenes for their own story on separate pages, similar in structure to Storytelling Cards
- Audio is recorded in Scratch as students describe the scene or character depicted on each card
- Instructor photographs or scans the drawing and imports them into Scratch
- Each drawing is mapped to the corresponding audio track
- Makey-Makey is connected to the collaged drawings using conductive material so touching the drawing triggers the audio cue
- Students share their stories with classmates by interacting with each others drawings
- Why do fairytales start with “Once upon a time…”?
- How do different characters typically act? (the princess, the knight, the dragon, etc)
- What happens at the beginning of a story? The middle? The end?
