Hi everyone!! I am a fifth-grade teacher who LOVES to try new and exciting things in class. I am a mom to a five year old boy and an eight year old girl. I am a few weeks behind but I have been enjoying the reading and look forward to sharing what I learn here with my admin and fellow teachers. I teach in upper Westchester in New York state.

My name is Deepak… I work for a Science Museum in Belgium and also am very active in teaching children on technology and innovation. Organised various TEDxYouth@Flanders events and also love the idea of LCL. I used to focus on kids aged 10-12y since they were the most open-minded with the right motory skills: I found that teaching 3dmodelling to kids below 7y was challenging due to the fact that they could not grasp how the 3d projection onto a 2d screen worked (exception kids who gamed). But I have moved on to youth aged 14-18 and even adults (being the tech curator for HackBelgium.be)

Books are my childhoodproject. My mother brought us to the library, there We could be for hours. The pictures and stories made my fantasi grow. It shaped our play, my sister and friends became diffrent figures. I also painted and wrote my own stories.
I enjoy my work in a schoollibrary were we try diffrent ways to tell stories. Books, pictures, film, Scratch, Minecraft all good ways to create and tell something

Hi, my name is Dario, and I am from La Coruña, Spain. I work as an independent consultant.
This course was brought to my attention (even though a little bit late) because I 've just bought the book “lifelong kindergarten”. I’m interested in learning how to learn and how to unlearn. I was very lucky to meet and have a talk for several hours, back in 2006, with the late Edith Ackerman (a real inspiring person) at MIT Media Lab.

Wish me luck and very nice to be a part of the community!

Xavi:
Que interesante la propuesta de Fab Kids! Me interesa conocer más. Desde Colombia estoy impulsando la creación de Clubes Creativos para que los niños y jóvenes puedan explorar, crear y expresarse creativamente con tecnología, utilizando los principios del Clubhouse, red con la que trabaje hace unos años atrás.
