Creative Coding at the art & craft school Robotti

I am currently working on an article concerning creative coding at the Käsityökoulu Robotti (art&craft school Robotti). Robotti is a non-profit organization that offers teaching on art&tech for children. 

Creative coding could be described as a programming that is more interested in expression than function, but in Robotti it is also used as a teaching method to empower children to take control of the surrounding digital world. As such it is a critical pedagogical tool as well as an artistic medium.

The article is based on the authors own ethnographic study in Robotti as well as interviews and questionnaires of teachers and students in Robotti.

The following presentation is from the Digital technologies in art education conference from Bergen, Norway this May.
