Awesome Microsoft Switch Adaptations with Bill Binko

ATMakers.org is an experiment in solving problems in Assistive Technology using the skills and tools of the Maker community. In short, we’ve seen tools in the Open-Source Hardware and Software community that can be incredibly useful for people with severe physical and cognitive challenges – we’d like to help introduce these communities to each other.

Founded by Bill Binko, co-founder and principal technologist at LessonPix.com, we hope to provide descriptions and instructions that allow a community of Makers (for example a high-school robotics club or regulars at a MakerSpace) to build customized technology solutions for Assistive Technology Professionals and individuals whose lives would be enriched by them.

“Sense-sational” activities using MakeyMakey and Beamz with Sharon Osborne

MakeyMakey is a fun way to take everyday objects and turn them into switches. Beamz is a fun way to interact with/create music. Come explore how these two items can be used (together or separately) to engage students in new and creative ways. And if you happen to know a thing or two about Scratch, then the sky’s the limit when it comes to MakeyMakey!
