Abstract

Through experiences with developing technologies available on the Internet, in video games, and in new media entertainment, many of our students' social and intellectual experiences utilize digital media in some fashion. The ever increasing accessibility of sophisticated media tools suggests that such enabling technologies could be ubiquitous in our classrooms and might soon serve as a foundation for learning. However, meaningful integration of interactive digital media is limited by a number of challenges relating to tools, curricula, and evaluation. Our work in K-12 Mediated Education takes an innovative approach to these challenges and utilizes methodologies drawn from interactive computer music for the realization of constructive learning environments that enrich students' understanding of sound and movement.
