LittleBits Workshop - Open to All

April 26, 2016 - 11:30 am to 1:00 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 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. An RSVP would be appreciate but is not required.

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

If you have questions please contact Professor Lindsay Mattock.
