CCATP #591 — Kaylee Dayo on Building JavaScript Games to Teach English in Japan

Kaylee is an English language teacher at primary schools in Japan. But she doesn’t just whip out a dusty old grammar book and drone on about when to use a gerund! She has mad programming and maker skills and she puts them to use in engaging the children. She has reproduced 1980s TV game shows all written in JavaScript, and then hacks old iPhone 4s to be used as game controllers. It’s a terrific conversation that often goes off the rails and her enthusiasm for the games and her respect for the children she teaches is infectious.
