Studio: About

NuVu’s pedagogy is based on the architectural Studio model and geared around multi-disciplinary, collaborative projects. We teach students how to navigate the messiness of the creative process, from inception to completion. So, what makes us different? No Courses: Instead, we have studios. Around 12 kids work closely with their 2 coaches on solving big (and small) open-ended problems. No Subjects: Instead, everything is fused together. No Classrooms: Instead, we have an open space that changes all the time to adapt to the needs of every studio.

No One-Hour Schedule: Instead, students spend two weeks from 9-3 solving one problem. No Grades: Instead, we have portfolios that document students' design decisions and show their final products. Make Beautiful Infographics.

There’s this great Andy Warhol quote you’ve probably seen before: “I think everybody should like everybody.”

I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days. Here’s What It Did to Me

You can buy posters and plates with pictures of Warhol, looking like the cover of a Belle & Sebastian album, with that phrase plastered across his face in Helvetica. But the full quote, taken from a 1963 interview in Art News, is a great description of how we interact on social media today. Warhol: Someone said that Brecht wanted everybody to think alike. I want everybody to think alike. But Brecht wanted to do it through Communism, in a way. The like and the favorite are the new metrics of success—very literally. I like everything. See, Facebook uses algorithms to decide what shows up in your feed.

There is a very specific form of Facebook messaging, designed to get you to interact. The first thing I liked was Living Social—my friend Jay had liked it before me and it was sitting at the top of my feed. Sometimes, liking is counterintuitive. Go Back to Top. 3 Key Qualities for a School Makerspace. Over the past year I had the privilege of leading a team to create makerspaces in 15 high schools around the Bay Area.

3 Key Qualities for a School Makerspace

Our goal was to learn how to help educators create makerspaces in schools and use making in the classroom. DARPA, which funded our program, eventually wanted to take what we learned and create makerspaces in 1,000 schools. While our DARPA funding ended in December, we believed so strongly in the benefits of these spaces that we continued to support our pilot schools until the end of the year. This was particularly rewarding work. Most of us have enjoyed watching someone’s eyes light up at Maker Faire, but listening to a high schooler describe his or her first open-ended project was very powerful.
