At the University of York, I was originally employed as Collaborative Tool Specialist, to evangelise and support collaboration within teams and departments. More recently I teach a variety of digital creativity tools and support academics with digital scholarship. 
Livecode, successor to Hypercard, is an easy-to-use programming tool with which you create stacks of cards and add images and buttons. We have made apps for iOS/Android, developing an audio guide to an archaeological dig, and a "signing in book" for the Borthwick Archives.
Sonic Pi is a wonderful for live-coding music. In just a few lines you are banging out amazing beats and learning the fundamentals of programming such as variables, code blocks, parameters etc.
With Twine you can quickly create branching interactive narratives, like those available here. Netflix recently broadcast Bandersnatch, an interactive film that was prototyped in Twine.
Processing is a coding tool to create visualisations or games. It is loved by artists and data-scientists alike, because of its hidden power. 
Thunkable is a web-based, block-coding tool like Scratch. You can create and have an app running on your iOS/Android phone within a few minutes. 
I also teach coding with Google's Apps Script and visualisation.
Digital Creativity Week
In Digital Creativity Week, worked with Data, Image Editing, Audio Editing, Coding and Visualisation and set out to created 3D immersive augmented experience. students Students based their creations on the Yorkshire Historic Dictionary
With an emphasis on getting the students to play with data, I based much of my thinking on the idea of Brian Eno and his book, The Vertical Colour of Sound. In the book there are some insightful common sense ideas, including:
"For the world to be interesting, you have to be manipulating it all the time.”​​​​​​​
"As soon as you externalise an idea you see facets of it that weren’t clear when it was just floating around in your head."
“The more time you spend on an old idea, the more energy you invest in it, the more solid it becomes, and the more it will exclude new ideas.”
