Kids, Arduinos and Quadricopters—Stephen Wolfram Blog. I have four children, all with very different interests.

Kids, Arduinos and Quadricopters—Stephen Wolfram Blog

My second-youngest, Christopher, age 13, has always liked technology. And last weekend he and I went to see the wild, wacky and creative technology (and other things) on display at the Maker Faire in New York. I had told the organizers I could give a talk. But a week or so before the event, Christopher told me he thought what I planned to talk about wasn’t as interesting as it could be. And that actually he could give some demos that would be a lot more interesting and relevant. Christopher has been an avid Mathematica user for years now.

And so it was that last Sunday I walked onto a stage with him in front of a standing-room-only crowd of a little over 300 people, carrying a quadricopter. Christopher had told me that I shouldn’t talk too long—and that then I should hand over to him. I must have given thousands of talks in my life, but the whole situation made me quite nervous. I don’t think my talk was particularly good.

Playful solutions for lifelong learning - LLinE. Photo: PLC In his biography, Steve Jobs (2011) uses the word ‘playful’ to characterise the design of Apple computers.

In doing so he distances Apple designs from other more traditional, dull and impersonal computers. For him, play and playfulness stand for the possibility for personal expression with material objects and engagement in creative interactions with the world. Jobs’ words merge well with our newly established Playful Learning Centre (PLC) situated at the Department of Teacher Education of the University of Helsinki, Finland.

The Center concentrates on researching and co-creating innovative playful learning solutions, practices and material tools for learners at any age to learn as they play and play as they learn. In this article, we shall provide a brief introduction to the rationale and conceptual grounding to Playful Learning Center. “The playful nip denotes the bite, but it does not denote what would be denoted by the bite” (Bateson, 1955, 180) Back to top Acknowledgements.
