CUEBC Conference – October 21, 2022 – Terry Fox Secondary School, Port Coquitlam, BC
This session will present an overview of two free platforms that incorporate coding and computational thinking principles into creative writing and digital music production.
Twine is a free platform that allows authors to use coding variables (HTML / CSS) to create interactive, non-linear, choose your own adventure style stories. It’s accessible across all major browsers and platforms and does not require a login or student data collection to function. Twine is a fantastic resource to incorporate into Language Arts, Social Studies, or Modern Language classes, among many other possibilities.
This section will also cover the EarSketch “Your Voice is Power” campaign. Your Voice is Power is a national competition for middle and high school students designed to teach the fundamentals of computer science, entrepreneurship, and social justice by examining and remixing music from three contemporary Canadian Indigenous artists.
This session will provide you with a thorough overview of what the platforms can do and how to get started with them. It will leave you with all the support resources you will require to continue exploring on your own.
