Gesture Recognition Programming Lesson
Quartz Composer (QC) is a node-based graphical programming language, a powerful programming language that has the capability of connecting with devices such as the Microsoft Kinect. Building upon previous Scratch lessons, my colleague Bofan Ren and I taught a group of 15 middle school students from our Digital Technologies for Teaching and Learning practicum the use of Kinect Skeleton Macro Patch. This patch produces a numerical structure of a users’ body, in this case, the students used this structure to create “puppets” and their stories.
