Ok, I’ll start!!

My name is Carmelo, and I learn and play in the Lifelong Kindergarten group.
One of the most exciting projects I’ve been working on lately has been… this edition of LCL!
Along with an amazing group of people that you will meet soon!

I took LCL a few years ago when I was in Italy. And that changed my life: it made me discover and fall in love with the ideas behind Scratch, and it helped me to design better experiences for the children who were attending our free CoderDojo club in Bologna.

More importantly, LCL was an opportunity for me to connect with like-minded people in Italy and abroad, who really care about helping children, of all ages, develop as free and creative thinkers.

I’m really thrilled to be part of this learning journey, and I look forward to learn, share and be inspired by your projects and your ideas!

Happy creative learning, everyone!
Carmelo

Hi Everyone!

My name is Clint and I’m currently working at the International School of Beijing as the Educational Technology Coordinator. Part of my responsibilities is to help integrate design and design thinking into our K-12 curriculum and I’m looking forward to thinking deeply about how play and creative learning can help influence this!

Hi, my name is Nabil. Currently, I teach at a kindergarten and I am interested in this topic because it helps me explore different ways to empower future generations. I have a science background which I would like to use in my “class”.

Hi Carmelo, and hello everyone!
I’m very glad to join this group to meet new ideas and get in touch
with other learning-teaching professionals, and to catch the opportunity I was looking for
from quite a long time: go deeper in the knowledge of Papert studies and LKGG work.
I’m a Montessori teacher, father, coderdojo champion and passionate about technological fluencies …
so happy that I found Montessori in the excerpts you suggested from ‘Mindstorms’.
I look forward to start this adventure.
I hope we’ll all have good time to spend together.
Saluti
Aldo
ps: if my english could be not so good, excuse me in advance and feel comfortable in correcting me

nice to meet you!
I am Manuel a researcher from the National Research Council of Italy (CNR).
I work at the Institute for EducationalTechnologies in Palermo, and my main research interests concern the definition of methodologies and environments to support learning.

Hi Carmelo and hello to all the participants in this MOOC. I am very glad that this course has been started online. Last summer I bought the Kindle of the Learning Creative book and I’m very passionate about it. I am a professor of science and math at the middle grade of secondary school and I am firmly convinced that in all subjects taught at school must be connected creativity otherwise learning remains sterile
