LittleBits Workshop - Online or On Site Event

April 28, 2016 - 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm

SLIS Conference Room - 3090 LIB

Prof. Lindsay Mattock, Mellon Postdoc of Digital Humanities Christina Boyles, and MLIS Student Andrew Petersen are conducting a research study to test new makerspace technologies including littleBits, Arduino, RaspberryPi, and Lego. This study will test the ability of these tools to help students build their digital literacy, design thinking, and programming skills.

Everyone is invited to participate in the on site Design Challenge Workshop. Participants will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire at the beginning and end of the workshop regarding their current understanding and experience with digital tools, and then work in groups to complete a design challenge. In addition, those attending will also be asked participate in two group discussions regarding their experience using makerspace technologies. The entire session will take approximately 90 minutes.

Online participation is restricted to current SLIS students. Request RSVP by Monday, 4-25-16 so technology can be mailed to you. If you have questions please contact Professor Lindsay Mattock.

We will not collect your name or any identifying information about you. Taking part in this research study is completely voluntary.
