WHAT: EDUCATION x DESIGN
WHEN: JULY 7TH TO 11TH
WHERE: 120 Rivington St. Schapiro’s Eatery New York, NY 10002
ABOUT: EDUCATION x DESIGN is a series of workshops for teachers in the design of learning experiences using design and emerging technology including digital fabrication, physical computing, and new approaches from design and the maker movement.
This workshops bring together the teaching practices of experienced teachers with design-driven approaches to the application of technology for teaching and learning. This hands on learning design program helps teachers use new tools to expand and deepen their teaching practice.
New approaches to designing the learning experience
Come with your own passions, experiences, and ideas. Leave with a powerful new set of tools to build your teaching practice.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
