Kaleidoscopes and periscopes: making tactile technologies for kids
This talk will outline Becca Rose's approach to developing creative educational technologies, as well as sharing the team’s insight into the making process.
Becca Rose is an artist, designer, and educator. In 2015 she started to explore ways to connect paper pages with sounds and animations on a screen. Since, she has developed an app for creating and sharing children’s stories across digital and physical spaces.
The app was recently awarded Innovate UK’s “art and technology” fund, which has lead Becca to develop work in a new way. She has been working with technologist Mark Wonnacott, producer Sarah Warden, and artists Emma Powell, Amy Rose, and Liv Bargman to take the app in a new direction. This talk will outline Becca’s approach to developing creative educational technologies, as well as sharing the team’s insight into the making process.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday.
Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do.
After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm.
Let us know if you’d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around just before the talk. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place on a tour.
