Inanimate Alice tells the story of a girl growing up dreaming of becoming a game designer one day. Uniquely, it is a tale of progressive complexity, each episode reflecting Alice’s age and digital competency as she grows up.

First meet Alice age 8, drawing a stickman and taking photos to send to her Dad. Grow up beside her through school and college during which time she hones her artistic and technological skills, relentlessly pursuing her dream.

Classrooms around the world are now using Inanimate Alice as an across-the-curriculum approach to teaching and learning. This is a story for teachers and students who wish to explore the nature of ‘born digital’ narratives. Free from the constraints of print formats, the text becomes dynamic, driving the story forwards, and the ambient sounds complement the immersive nature of the story.

The format targets students 10-14 years of age: colourful magazine pages attract younger students, while the later episodes explore more complex themes. Resources and activities help teachers integrate Inanimate Alice into the curriculum.

This is a story of exploration. An adventure. Take a look at the timeline of Alice’s adventures and find the best place to start for you.

  • My students have been so highly engaged and can’t wait to do more! They even wanted to know if they could do it at home, and that is unheard of in our school community!

  • I love the visual presentation and engaging activities that keep my Deaf students and reluctant readers so engrossed that they forget it is learning!!

    Jenny Williamson Henderson Mill Elementary School, Georgia
  • I love how the language is so supported by the graphics that even beginner English language learners can understand it!

  • I have been a massive fan of Inanimate Alice for almost 6 years now. It is the only resource that has travelled with me from Grade 6 to 7 to 8 and currently in Grade 2. A fantastic teaching tool.

  • I want to praise @InanimateAlice for being THE best non-coding related educational tool I have ever used because of how it engages my students. Nothing quite like a character to lead them in.

    Drew Buddie ICT Co-ordinator, Royal Masonic School, UK
  • I am so proud of the students’ work but even more so, they are so proud and empowered. That, I think, is the greatest reward!
