The Makey Makey is an electronic invention kit for all ages! The Makey Makey allows you to take everyday objects and combine them with the internet. Using the alligator clips attached to any conductive material you can control the keyboard of your computer, such as the space bar, arrow keys and left click of the mouse. Makey Makey is part of the maker movement! You can connect with people from all over the world to invent a wide array of electronic maker projects, from musical house plants, interactive classrooms, and amazing assistive technology (MakeyMakey.com)!
This will be the first time my students would be exposed to this type of technology the possibilities are endless.
Students will create interactive projects using MakeyMakey. For example, interactive books that the students can build to help teach other students to read. Also, musical instruments can be made out of everyday objects. The project ideas are only limited by the student's imagination.
