What a week it’s been!
On Wednesday, I was part of a panel on Creation over Consumption & How to Plan for the Future at Digital Kids Edu here in San Francisco. I was thrilled to be on this panel with some really great folks:
– Moderator: Izzy Neis, Director of Digital Engagement & Strategy, Metaverse Mod Squad
– Yuval Kaminka, CEO and Co-Founder, JoyTunes
– Jacob Klein, Co-Founder, MotionMath
– Jessica Lindl, General Manager, Institute of Play
And the audience was great– I love it when they ask tough questions!
Just this afternoon, I presented at STEMxCon, the global, online conference about all things STEM and beyond. Why beyond? Well, according to the website: The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics acronym is no longer adequate, as it is missing well over 20 letters that represent key skills & disciplines. As such, x = Computer Science (CS), Computational Thinking (CT), Inquiry (I), Creativity & Innovation (CI), Global Fluency (GF), Collaboration ( C ), …and other emerging disciplines & 21st century skills.
I presented a session entitled Creativity and K12 Education and it was recorded and is available to view here (note that if you have a Mac, you may need to download the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher first). It was a great group of folks in the session and I’d love to hear any feedback or thoughts that you have. Or you can view my slides here (but you’ll miss my melodious voice as it’s just slides). 🙂
PS The Digital Kids Edu Conference was held at the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco. I can’t think of a better location!
