John Seely Brown: Tinkering as a Mode of Knowledge Production

www.johnseelybrown.com "I am what I create" says John Seely Brown addressing the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching - Stanford, CA, Oct. 23-...
ghbrett's insight:

Some thoughts from this video:  Tinkering takes imagination and one builds something. A new challenge education learning environment is "peer learning". These processes lead to constructive criticism which can lead to a skill for life long learning as well as used in the workspace. Looking forward to an open source world where I can take ideas from the net, re-purpose it, and then share it back with the community on the net -- sharing. Worth the 10 minutes to stop and think about his vision of a new world -- tinkering, peer learning, and sharing.

... "We believe that everyone is creative, inventive, and imaginative. We believe that everyone can create the future and change the world. So we have dedicated our lives to making easy-to-use invention kits. We believe that the whole world is a construction kit, if we choose to see it that way.

 

We are inspired by the Maker Movement. We want to help people start to think of themselves as Makers and agents of change. When you have the "Maker's Mindset," you know you can change the world."" from source: http://makeymakey.com/

ghbrett's insight:

Makey Makey can be compared to a 21rst century Erector Set. An Erector Set with nuts, bolts, steel strips in various shapes with holes in them allowed the builder to create amazing things. Makey Makey does the same with digital technology. You can build, create, design, prototype amazing things. Their web site shows how an eight year old girl invented and created a virtual piece of wood to be cut with a real knife. Or how about making a piano from bananas? Check it out!
