Hi, i’m Julie and work in the distance learning field. Actually used to since i am currently unemployed, but it allows me to follow several MOOCs and try out apps, among many other things. So no big deal!I am based in France now, after several years living and working around East Africa mainly, great region. I look forward discovering and applying design thinking techniques in education, and being in touch with passionate people too indeed.Talk soon,Julie
Thanks very much. I’m in the process of overhauling the website and adding new images. So it is a bit of a mess right now.
Hello everyone! I’m Mike from the UK. I’m a web developer and designer catering to small businesses. I’m pretty skilled on the development, management, and business aspects of the job but I’m looking to boost my creative skills.
Hi, Katherine! Nice to see you here! I remember once you said you worked in a library, but I didn’t know about your passion of ” to help guide youth in developing skills”. In another way I do the same with my students. It’s wonderful! Congrats!
My name is Paul Carlsson, born -69 and I live in a small town in the south of Sweden named Karlshamn (Carls harbour). I work at Blekinge Institute of Technology where we have educations in media technology (audio, game, visual and web production). I?m also into research where my main interests lies in the possibilities of recreating education as we know it. How to design creative space/environment and how to organize our our education programmes and the content to promote creativity and new ideas. Happy that I found LCL and hope I have the time and space to take part of all your knowledge and ideas.My sparetime is spent on being with my family (common-law wife and three kids, 8, 11 and 14) and to play music in some different bands. Started to play the upright bass a couple years ago in an americana band called PPM (Peter, Paul and Martin). Spotify iTunes
My name’s David, although most people call me “Lefty” – “too many Daves”. I’m 57 and I worked for 20 years in Silicon Valley prior to getting laid off, along with 35% of the company, in 2010. I’ve been working on building up a career doing freelance technology consulting and writing since then.
Hi. My name is Ai Boon from Singapore. I am a Christian songwriter and a great fan of Scratch. I work as a Scratch Educator for Scratchworks which belongs to my husband. We have two wonderful sons. My favourite subject is Creative writing. : ) I am very grateful to the Scratch Team for sharing this most versatile educational teaching tool with the world.
Hey John – I’ve been to Addis a few times and it’s my favorite city in Africa. The food is amazing (and so are the Meta beer, and the coffee). Great to see you here. P
Hi Katherine! I’m a Teen Programming Specialist at the Free Library of Philadelphia, running our Maker Jawn Initiative. The first thing I did on this discussion board was look for other library folks. Looking forward to sharing with/learning from you!
Hi new friends! My name is K-Fai and I work at the Free Library of Philadelphia. I run the Maker Jawn Initiative, a daily afterschool maker program in libraries across North Philadelphia. I help to herd and steer our amazing team of Maker Mentors, nearly a dozen people with backgrounds that include computer science, video production, and art, who guide youth as they identify and articulate their own creative, personal, and future-thinking goals, mostly through the creation of artifacts (videos, eTextile projects, etc) that serve as communal talking-points. Visited with a lot of folks from LLK at DML last month, and I’m really psyched because our entire Maker team is participating in the Learning Creative Learning MOOC and dedicating time during our weekly meetings to discuss the topics. Sometimes you get so entrenched in being a practicioner, that it’s hard to step back and reflect, and that’s what we hope to use LCL to do!
