LCL

[Round 2] Introduce yourself


#262

Hi there!
I am a design researcher in Columbus, OH, and founder of both Insitu Health (digital mental health) and PHENOM Design (private design practice inspired by phenomenological philosophy).

I have heard about Scratch for some years now. Finding the project while studying research efforts to empower and extend creative expression through technology. Projects that lowered the barriers to programming with visual approaches as opposed to the abstraction of “code”. To build the things themselves as they are-- isomorphically.

Today, I am working on a project entitled: “Future Together: A pilot, trauma-informed and digital arts-based participatory action research program for youth and young adults experiencing homelessness.” Web design projects are the initial focus. Using Webflow and other visual builders.

My goal has been to cultivate a “flow” of creative expression for self-actualization. I am most inspired by the powerful methods of the Lifelong Kindergarten group. Grounded in practice with simple language. I am able to quickly prototype a Web Design program using LCL principles.

Super excited to participate and be inspired! Ready to improve my project vision with these learnings.
JP

Hello learning lovers :slight_smile:
I am sara and I am from Egypt I am a mother of 2 kids and computer science graduate and when I was a kid I always thinking why learning journey isn’t that fun and creative and I hope to help my kids to find what I was dreamed of one day
I think this community is what I was looking for
Did I have to attend LCL Round 1 ?

Hi Sara! No need to have attended Round 1! We sometimes offer “rounds” of the course, where a group of people move together through the six weeks, but LCL is always ongoing, and you are welcome to join anytime!

Good Day,

My name is Kaleena. I am currently a Community Manager for a program called AlumniU which focuses on facilitating online learning opportunities for University of Chicago Alumni. I was so excited to learn about this community due to my personal love of lifelong learning and the deep value I have for play/creativity in life. I’d like to learn more about ways to help encourage others to engage in creative learning also, specifically in an online setting.

Nice to meet you all!

Sincerely,
Kaleena (Rheeya)

Hi, my name is Johanna, I´m from Colombia but I usually change country every 3 or 5 years because of my job, I´ve been working in public policy and international cooperation for a long long time. Now I´m living in Equator.
My family and I have decided to begin the adventure of homeschooling (unschooling). I´m excited to support the learning process of my two daughters and go back to my roots because I studied Educative Comunication. Thanks for this great course, tools and forum.

Hello everyone, I’m Marcio. I’m a brazilian who lives in Milan, Italy. I’m a father of two kids (5 and 2 years old) interested in helping kids learn through making. I’ve been making things (and programs) since I was little and I believe this greatly helped me develop a strong will for learning more and to approach problems with creativity and resilience. I hope this course can help me become good at inspiring kids to learn. Hopefully I can also contribute to the course community. Thank you!

Hi everyone !

My name is Hyojae Lee, Im 26 and I live in Seoul. I work at the display company as a researcher. My background is in Energy Science and Engineering.

Now I am searching what I need to do for my future and I get to know about MIT Media Lab. So I’ve been searching information about it and I found LCL on the Internet by chance.
I really don’t know about coding or computer science. But I love to learn something new, fun and cool so I’m glad to participate the new round of LCL and I’m expected to open my mind and knowledge from it.

Thanks for holding such a cool program. I am very very excited to join LCL!
