As we prepare for our presentation at this year'sNIME conference
(for those attending NIME you can
see us during the 130pm demo session later today), it is my great
pleasure to announce a new version ofPd-L2Ork
programming environment (the
backbone of our software infrastructure) featuring the K-12 learning
module prototype. Geared specifically towards K-12 students, the
newfound module addresses the lack of a robust sound- and music-oriented
programming tool for elementary, middle, and high-school students. The
current prototype is a first step towards a tiered granular design of
learning objects that aim to recontextualize pd-l2ork into a K-12
learning tool. The resulting first iteration offers a limited set of
coarse-grained objects geared primarily towards 4th and 5th graders.
This, however, has not deterredBoys & Girls Club of Southwest Virginia
students participating in the afterschool
program from making some quite evolved instruments using Nintendo
Wiimotes and their satellite laptop orchestra in less than three
sessions 1-hour.

For more info on Pd-L2Ork see our Software page. To enable the K12 mode,
simply start pd-l2ork with the -k12 flag as follows:

pd-l2ork -k12

I would like to hereby encourage all interested in furthering the said
tool to join us on thel2ork-dev mailing list
. We are
particularly interested in growing a library of coarse-grained objects
pertaining to sound generation and signal manipulation.
