Virtual Reality Workshop

Virtual Reality has much potential for enhancing children’s creativity and digital literacies. Read about my research in VR and childhood for MakEY Project.

Tate Britain

I was invited to be part of the first digital day celebrated at Tate Britain, in London. ‘Imagine If‘ focused on learning through playing using technology and the artworks exhibited at the museum. More information about my workshop here.

Animation Celebration at Cinekid Festival

This is a small documentary in 360 of “Animation Celebration!”, a workshop I developed with the School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe for the 30th Cinekid Festival that happened in Amsterdam, for two weeks on October, 2016. Our workshop had 3 steps: 1. Kids created a controller made of cardboard. 2. Kids created an animation on the iPad using an app developed by us. 3. Kids connected their controllers to their projected animations using Makey Makey; and then, glitch it using the buttons on their controllers!   These are some of the animations created by kids on the workshop: I’m available for workshops! Contact me and I can either create a workshop with a specific need or theme, or/and I can bring you my workshops involving arts and technology, focusing on creative development and empowerment through playing and learning.

Electric Monsters

Children are naturally drawn to clay, modeling with clay and creating stories with it. Why not add a bit of technology into it? Simply adding LED’s brings their imagination to a whole different level!
