Leo Brooks recognized a need in Alberta’s elementary school music education and is working to solve it through gamification.
After working as a contract music teacher, Brooks quickly realized his curriculum was often the only exposure to music his students had throughout the entire year. Thus, the idea for Wacky Wizards was born.
Brooks launched Whacky Wizards as part of his graduate program at the University of Lethbridge; Master of Arts majoring in Individualized Multidisciplinary. Through this unique and collaborative structure he was able to create a program across different faculties including music, education and technology with a cross section of advisors.
You can expect to continue to see Wacky Wizards hitting classrooms around the province, all thanks to Brooks! To learn more check out the Whacky Wizards website.
