Interactive Graphic Novels
Thanks to a generous grant from the Michael E. Smith Endowment, we're able to have Holyoke Codes come into the classroom to teach Interactive Graphic Novels. Students will learn to use Ren’Py, a Python-based tool that enables them to easily create visual novels with words, images, and sounds. They will combine multi-media capabilities and digital storytelling, offering readers the ability to engage with their stories and make choices that affect the outcome! This program will run through November and the beginning of December.
