Excerpt: CREATIVE COMPUTING?

The purpose…

[/caption] I am doing the Creative Computing course using Scratch over at MIT. The Creative Computing Online Workshop is a six-week online workshop for educators who want to learn more about using Scratch and supporting computational thinking in the classroom and other learning environments. I like the format because it is not a course – it is structured but there is a lot of leeway in how you approach the activities and it is emergent in how it is being built as with most innovation in this area of online learning. I will be volunteering to teach Scratch…

Excerpt: This is an interview I did with Peps Mccrea earlier this month. We talked about OpenPlan and the plans Peps has for its development. I found out about OpenPlan through Twitter and a specific tweet by Laura Kirsop: someone else I need to interview soon. We move through the concepts of iterative design, UX design; Learning Design; RCTs; Wenger’s Communities of Practice; the ResearchEd conference coming up in September 2013; ASE TeachMeets; Educational Startups and a much more. In my latest series of interviews I will now usually include a transcript for those wanting to read the interview rather than listen. I hope…

Bear in mind audio kit is getting cheaper and cheaper as…
