Hi LCL!

I’m Lily, with the Learning Creative Learning team here in Cambridge, MA, USA.

I research, design, and facilitate creative learning experiences in collaboration with others from the Lifelong Kindergarten group in the MIT Media Lab. I’m excited about the design of creative learning environments/spaces, intergenerational learning communities, poetry, making, art, and craft.

Can’t wait to learn and create with all of you! :slight_smile:

Hi everyone!
I’m Jacques, professor at Federal Institute of Education Science and Technology of Ceara, Camocim :palm_tree::sunny:, CE, Brazil. I am interested in creative educational practices and methodologies that use technology in favor of the teaching-learning process. I have some experience with Scratch and language programming. I’m excited to learn a bit more about creative learning and share experiences about it.

Hello everybody, I’m from Como, Italy. I spent nearly 40 years of my life cultivating an insane passion for technology, that became also my work as an IT professional.
Now that I’m father of 2 children (9 and 13 y.o.), I’m trying to give back some of what I’ve learned and of that passion to them and to the community, mentoring in a local CoderDojo.
I like to share ideas, to experiment and I love to learn from my errors and failures. Hope to share positive feelings with you.

Hi! I’m Maren Vernon, and I am a web developer and online coding instructor located in the US. I’m driven to help the next class of tech workers be more inclusive and representative of diverse backgrounds and experiences, so tech can benefit everyone. And as a mom of two elementary-age girls, I’m excited to introduce the concepts of computational thinking to my kids and others (in part using Scratch and also with fun, hands-on projects on and off the screen) which are valuable concepts whether or not they pursue a career in tech later.
