‘The Promise & Reality of Learning with Technology’ in NYC Schools | #NYC #MakerEd via @mouse_org & @CUNYSPS

Check out the podcast series No Such Thing (hosted at pippa.io) that is a partnership between mouse.org and City University of New York’s Masters Program in Youth Studies at the School of Professional Studies. The show looks at many topics related to “learning with technology” and we thought it would be fun to first highlight an episode from late last year that specifically addresses the notion of “Maker Education” in NYC public schools:

>In this episode: Veteran educators from urban public schools unpack the promise and practice that has captured many imaginations.

After decades of experience in the NYC public school system, these three educators are hopeful that “Maker Education,” the field’s instantiation of the popular tinker movement re-constituted by the commercial Make Magazine and Maker Faire, holds promise for reforming aspects of how we teach and learn. Dr. Lou Lahanna, Lori Stahl-VanBrackle, and Iliana Villegas don’t agree on every aspect of the present or future of Maker Ed, but together with thousands of educators nationally, are writing the playbook as they go. This conversation unpacks the specifics issues that educators face when working to infuse the values and methodology into their schools. The group cite examples of multi-disciplinary project work, and dig into the spaces where they happen.


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.
