Expanding creative opportunities
Designed especially for children and families in communities with limited or no access to computers and internet connectivity, OctoStudio greatly expands who has opportunities to engage in creative activities with digital technologies. Children can create OctoStudio projects offline, without any data charges.
Interacting with the world
As children create with OctoStudio, the world is their palette, full of creative possibilities. They can bring images and sounds from their neighborhood into their projects, and also integrate their creations into the physical world. For example, a child can place a phone in their pocket and program it to play sounds when they jump or dance.
Learning through creating
In the process of creating OctoStudio projects, children develop important problem-solving and creative-thinking skills, while learning computational ideas in a meaningful and motivating context.
The Lifelong Kindergarten group is collaborating with educators in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, South Africa, India, Korea, and other countries around the world so that OctoStudio engages and supports creative expression for learners across diverse cultural contexts.
OctoStudio is available for free for iOS and Android in more than 20 languages.
