Abstract

In this article we describe the design and realization of SMALLab, a new Student Centered Learning Environment [SCLE] that utilizes interactive digital media in a multimodal sensing framework. We draw on methodologies from interactive art, computer music composition, animation, and educational technology to facilitate learning with digital media that emphasizes collaboration and human-to-human interaction. We describe the realization of this learning platform, and discuss the design of a complementary curriculum that helps students develop a deeper understanding of movement and sound.
