Digital Hack Session 2 – 1:10pm-3:10pm
Candra K. Gill, Rosetta Marketing
This workshop will serve as a hands-on introduction to open source hardware formats. We will cover Arduino microcontrollers in multiple formats including wearable platforms, the Makey Makey user interface platform, and the Raspberry Pi computer. Examples of each will be available to use at the workshop. We will focus on ways in which these platforms can add another dimension to incorporating games in the classroom. While the content of the workshop will target beginners, those with experience with these platforms are welcome to come help and to bring examples of their work.
