Hi All, Looking forward to another stimulating and creative learning experience with LCL2. I’m a 30+ year K-12 educator, mostly teaching programming and other computer skills. Over the past year I’ve become enraptured by the Maker movement (a romance helped along by LCL1) and am spending much time and effort exploring things like 3D printing, Arduino, LEDs, etc..
I participated in LCL last year and fell in love with it to the point that my husband bought me an Arduino for Christmas
I’m an education specialist at Helix, an offsite laboratory of the Exploratorium where we are testing a model for a small community science center that provides inquiry and experimentation experiences for an intergenerational learning community. I’m also first time father to a newborn who is learning about the world.
More greetings from Seattle (USA)– My name is Jeff, and I’m an educational technologist at an independent school for students aged 10-18. This year I’m starting a tinkering/making program and space, as well as coaching students and teachers on tech-enhanced pedagogy and curriculum.

Hi I’m Catherine, and I’m actually not a cat. I’m interested in neural networks (as in brains, not computers) and connections to creativity and learning, as well as Design Based Learning and maker stuff – which if combined you could call an interest in The Maker’s Brain. (I gave a presentation at the Links conference at the Media Lab last fortunate enough to work at the New York Hall of Science.
Thanks, it great to meet you as well, I am looking forward to becoming part of this community of so many passionate learners who in turn teach us all, not just the students in their classrooms!
Nice to meet you all!My name is Alejandro. I live on Gran Canaria, one of the Canary Islands, Spain.I’ve been jack of many trades.I think, professionally I’ve been the most creative as furniture designer/cabinetmaker. As a front-end developer I’ve participate mainly in ordinary projects, where I put my creativity to work caring about standards, good practices, semantic web, and refactoring.I’ve been always curious and passionate about knowledge in any area: science, arts, et cetera. Since my first one, 18 months ago, I became a MOOCs-maniac. I’m curious about learning creative learning.I feel a bit anxious because I’ve spoken English very, very little for many years and I don’t know how will it go on during Hangouts. I appreciate fluency a lot and I wonder if I will be able to accomplish it.I like surfing, photography and doodling.
