LCL

[Round 3] Introduce yourself!


#221

Hi LCL. My name is Michelle, an UX and Product designer from Panama City, Panama with a background in Industrial Design and Psychology.

I am a mentor at one of the Computer Clubhouses in Panama and I have had experience teaching STEM to elementary school children using Scratch, MakeyMakey, and ideas of the LCL philosophy.
I am looking to learn more about tools and ideas used for creative learning and the impact they can have in developing communities.

Looking forward to meet new people and read more experiences!

Reading the posts in the various Romance languages is doing wonders for my language practice, for sure! I knew Portuguese and Italian were very similar to the languages I’ve studied, but I’m pleased how much I can understand – at least enough to get a general idea of what is being said.

I think I’ll wait for a second time through the program before I try to participate in Spanish! My ability to speak and write is pretty much limited to the present tense right now.

Nice to meet you too! So many fascinating people here!

Hello hello! This group seems slightly larger than the Slack #welcome - so I’ll introduce myself here as well! My name is Lorena (my English-speaking friends call me Lorax which makes me smile, I do really like trees). I am originally from Mexico City, currently living and working in an awesome education non-profit in Toronto, Canada. I’d love to connect with people locally as well, so if you’re in Toronto and like offline collaboration, send me a message!

¡Hola Daniel! I’d love to hear more about makerspaces in Mexico! What has been your favourite project? Or biggest surprise or “aha moment” working in the community?? ­¡Saludos!

Hello!
My name is Rayhan and I live in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I’m an independent researcher on ‘Educational, Social & Youth’ issues. I’m a passionate E-Learner & I’ve successfully participated in and completed more than 25 MOOCs/E-Learning courses from the world’s leading universities, including the “Design and Development of Educational Technology” course offered by MITx, an online learning initiative of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), through edX. This is the 3rd time I’m participating in LCL. I’m very delighted to be a part of this global community of learners, educators, designers, researchers and thinkers!
Good luck!!

Hello everyone! :grinning:
I’m Sana. I started my journey in 2011 when I played a role of an organizing member of a local community called Wikilogia, a collaborative community of engineering students envisioning an economically empowered generation of students with marketable global and regional competencies.
We recently launched a joint local - UN program called Wikilogia Hackathon to support students build technical projects related to real-life problems and to make them one step closer to entrepreneurship!
I also work on my startup Daraty, an educational toolkit to teach kids about electronics and technology to make them ready for 2030 workforce and needed technical skills.

Have a great day!

Hi all,

I’m Troy. I am the Classroom Tech Leader at International School Dhaka, in Bangladesh. I am deeply interested in all of the different aspects in which technology can help us connect with one another, and the many facets that has when working with students in a classroom.

I tried doing this course before over the summer, but wasn’t able to complete it at the time. So now, I’m jumping back in and curious to work with all of you!
