Before I get on with my Monday wanted to say ♥️ today's @GoogleDoodles featuring pioneer of electronic music Oskar Sala. What he did with his 1952 Mixtur-Trautonium can be recreated using @Sonic_Pi on a laptop today.
I almost wanna say it's day 29.5 because I didn't strictly study in the usual sense. Today was spent trying to wrap my little coder/musician brain around sonic pi syntax for the third day. It's really a very cool tool.
Ended up doing 2 wish-list items on a whim today afternoon.
Finally set up the @Raspberry_Pi 4 that I had bought from the good folks at Pibox India in 2020. 🤖
Then installed and tried my hand at live coding music with @Sonic_Pi (shoutout to @samaaron). 🎶
Girls in Computing Event @KingsPriory
All of our Year 7 girls enjoyed an afternoon focusing on computing. We had guest speakers from @AccentureUK and other industry professionals from across the UK! Workshops included programming music using Sonic Pi and Wearable Tech!
@aspiringpeasant Kids evolved to teach themselves. We need to provide them with conducive environments for that self teaching.
I quite like @samaaron and his program Sonic Pi. It's not gamified, but it is a programming language for music.
Prob more fun than some addictive metaverse education.
In Coding Club this week the children have been learning how to make a drum loop on Sonic Pi. They were amazing at typing the algorithms and debugging when it did not work! Well done coders! #sonicpi #computingtga ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Can't believe it, @samaaron: my students in grade 9 work on @Sonic_Pi assignments in a focused way like I have never ever encounter in my career as a computer teacher. Awsome! And they hand in sound code and recordings of it that make me forget my lunch break! 🤩 Incredible!
Explaining programming fundamentals with music theory and, vice versa, explaining music basics for data visualization with programming examples in @Sonic_Pi
Continuous parallelism between music theory and programming is the very key for a deep understanding of both worlds
