Thanks to Desconcentrado and Lanalana, I just got an opportunity to teach at USC IML. The class, IML400, explores creativity and the web from the standpoint of new media literacies. Following some things I learned about education at MIT, and especially following this kind of great advise, I decided to inject a strong infusion of maker culture into my class recipe. In a way, I am following the strange cognitive pattern that led me to develop my own programming literacy —I do understand code, and I can express myself with it— and I am looking for ways to share the valuable bits that pushed me through the learning breakthroughs that have helped me the most. Not bad at all, and I am already having a ton of fun.
Hopefully my students will share my excitement ^_^
