Code Jumper: Accessible Programming

Code Jumper: tablet with app and various colorful pods linked together.

Code Jumper combines physical pieces with an accessible app to make coding available for students who are visually impaired. Students are tasked with building programs by tethering pods together which represent each line of code. As the code runs, students can physically follow each line by tracking the linked pods.

Code Jumper began in early 2017 as a Microsoft project, called Project Torino. (See previous post about Project Torino here.) The project will soon be distributed through APH.
