Have you tried Creative Coding in your classroom?
Creative Coding is a computational media movement that focuses on using technology and programming with the goal of being expressive, not functional. Projects can be interactive projections, sculptures with physical computing devices, generative art, paper electronics, or sonic art. Collaboration and Design Thinking can easily be incorporated into project designs.
Creative Coding is fairly easy to differentiate for different grades and different thinkers. It also appeals to a diverse range of students and thinkers. Creative Coding is one way to expose students in non-CS classes like the art classroom to computational thinking/ work.
