Olá! Sou Adevan. Moro no Brasil e trabalho como professor da educação básica em uma escola pública e outra da rede privada. Além disso, estou desenvolvendo pesquisas sobre o ensino de Genética Clássica voltado ao ensino médio pela Universidade Federal de Alagoas. Estou sempre buscando ter novas experiências voltadas ao “ensinar com criatividade”.

Salve a tutti. Mi chiamo Francesco Riolo e sono interessato ai temi del life long learning, delle TIC e della didattica per competenze. Insomma, ritengo importante essere un insegnante attuale al proprio tempo e quindi aggiornarmi su come poter migliorare le mie competenze didattiche ed educative.

Ciao, sono Sandra, pedagogista italiana, vivo nel Mugello (Toscana) mi occupo di educazione e creatività legata ai temi della sostenibilità da ormai 25 anni sono qui in LCL per la seconda volta e faccio fatica a seguire lo scambio ma adoro l’approccio che ha Mitch Resnick e il suo staff e quando si parla, e soprattutto si agisce, sulla creatività, beh io ci sono. Contribuisco a rendere piacevoli 2 luoghi del mio paese dove vivo:
Centro di riuso creativo Remida (progetto delle scuole dell’infanzia del comune di Reggio Emilia e la Fondazione Malaguzzi) + un Piccolo Museo dei Bambini inserito in un Museo storico delle ceramiche Chini. Domani 26/02/2018 andró a Reggio Emilia per ascoltare dal vivo Mitch e chissà se riusciamo a creare connessioni. Buone super e tecnologiche connessioni a tutti :nerd_face:

Hi, my name is Tapani. I work at the European School in Brussels, Belgium. I am originally from Finland.

I try to follow what is happening in the innovative and creative centers of education around the world. And apply fresh ideas in my work. I am really pleased to have heard about lcl community today, watching online professor Resnick’s speech from Italy.

Hi, my name is Giancarlo. I am a physics student at the Federico II University of Naples. At the moment I am working on my master thesis in Physics teaching with innovative technologies and methodologies. I love studying learning processes by creating new laboratories experimenting them especially in the neighborhoods of my city where there is educational poverty. Therefore I am very interested in being part of this community and I hope that among us there will be a rich exchange of constructive ideas.

I recently returned home after 3 cold days spent in Bologna and Reggio Emilia, where I participated in the workshops “Cultivating Creativity” meeting super guys including Carmelo :wave:. Unfortunately, a snowstorm prevented me from participating in the conversation with Prof. Resnick on the occasion of the presentation of his work. I hope I can meet again soon, I have many questions to ask. :grin:

Hi, My name is Adrian. I’m from Tucuman, Argentina. Northwest of the country. I’m starting afterschool workshops to teach programming with Scratch to kids, the idea is to start with that and then try to go in schools. Nobody is teaching this type of material in my area.
Thanks
Adrian

while born in suriname (small country in northeast of South America) i was orphaned at a young age and eventually adopted by american parents in the diplomatic core, so i grew up in many different countries/cultures. my education alternated between homeschooling and various private and public schools; this gave me a unique perspective which informed my university studies in art education and art therapy.

As a retired educator (over 30 years in the community college system) I am still addicted to taking courses and learning new things. I am particularly interested in how and why learnings take place. I watch my 2-year grandkids and am amazed at how much more they know about the world than I did at their age.
I find it all incredibly fun.

Hello everyone!
I am Tanjima. I am from Bangladesh, but currently working and residing in Pennsylvania. How to make learning the most exciting, fun and intuitive activity (I am very tempted to use the word ‘game’) - is something that I am fascinated about! In my work, I find me and my coworkers struggling to learn a new side of the application we are developing. So everytime I learn something I try to capture all my knowledge in a way that will reduce the struggle to learn that I had to go through - bringing better experience in learning! I am follower of projects in Lifelong Kindergarten and I am very excited to be a part of this community - I am looking forward to ideas and knowledge to enrich my work toward developing intuitive methods for learning! Cheers!
