Sessions du code créatif Atelier ouvert hebdomadaire pour l’expérimentation et la création numérique - MER. 08 AVR. Coding Ateliers. La coordinatrice du réseau des bibliothèques/médiathèques de PANTIN, m’a contacté par l’intermédiaire des coding gouter pour que j’anime, en parallèle avec une exposition sur les robots, des sessions d’initiation à la programmation et à la robotique.

Coding Ateliers

Nous avons convenu que j’animerais, début 2014, deux ateliers dans chacune des trois médiathèques du réseau. La philosophie est simple, on apprend en binôme, en faisant, pas de cours mais des explications, de la bidouille, le droit de faire et défaire, des réponses qui viennent après une recherche personnelle, le droit de se tromper et le temps d’apprendre de ses erreurs, de tester, le plaisir de partager et de montrer ce que l’on a fait.

Cryptoparty à la Médiathèque sur l'identité numérique

Du Big Data aux duplications de données bancaires, des petits traces à l'exactitude de votre identification. Le 22 Janvier conférences et ateliers à la Médiathèque José Cabanis et au Vélo Sentimental. Sommaire de ce billet Qu'est-ce que votre identité numérique ? Quelle est la différence avec l'identification ? Le niveau est prévu pour être accessible au plus grand nombre, aussi bien pour l'utilisateur occasionnel d'ordinateurs que pour le geek aguerri. #◂Conférences.

In collaboration with Odile Fayet and Marie-Claude Beck from Pompidou Center in Paris, I designed and set up a family-oriented creative workshop using electricity and circuits: “Je suis une vraie pile électrique !”

Playing with electricity. Kids, creativity, and the basics of interaction.

(From a french idiomatic meaning that a kid is unable to stand still. Literally, “I’m a real electric battery!” ). In “Je suis une vraie pile électrique !” The emphasis is on the wonder of building and interacting with electric circuits: switching on and switching off a circuit, making something strange or beautiful happen. Learning by creativity As with Code, Colors, Cookies the vision is to empower participant by letting them use technology creatively, trying things without fearing failure or fearing to break things. Our goal is not to teach “the right thing to do” or “the fundamentals”, but to allow kids and families to explore the creative possibilities of the basics of interaction. Minecraft lures kids to museums like nothing else. Playtime at the Anchorage Museum.

Minecraft lures kids to museums like nothing else

For once, the visit wouldn’t be about “boring” old artwork or educational science, but something he really loves — Minecraft. “This is great,” he said while tapping and mousing his way through a multiplayer Minecraft landscape that was part of an activity at The Anchorage Museum. “My friend told me about this and it’s way better than staying at home doing this in my bedroom.”

The elementary-age boys and girls gathered at the museum Wednesday in two sessions of three hours each for a total of 80 spots. The museum wanted to get kids excited about coming to the museum. “It’s like when you run a theater, and notice that your audience is graying,” said Greg Danner, the museum’s curator of science and interactivity.

Rennescraft : la vie des hauts ludiques* — [pop-up] urbain. Quand @el_Reg nous a parlé de personnes qui modélisaient la ville de Rennes via Minecraft, notre coeur a fait boomboom (on parle de ce jeu merveilleux ici ou là).

On s’est donc tourné vers les porteurs du projet Rennescraft pour en savoir plus sur cette hybridation entre cartographie et nouveaux imaginaires vidéoludiques. So You Think You Want to Run a Hackathon? Think Again. Part 1: Set Goals You Can Hold Yourself Accountable To [Or, Why We Didn't Have a Funk Parade Hackathon] Not all hackathons are terrible, ill-deployed “flytraps” laid out to capture developers’ attention.

So You Think You Want to Run a Hackathon? Think Again.

Initially, hacks were designed as temporary spaces for group problem-solving and prototyping (think: business accelerator meets science lab) and sometimes, just for straight-up creativity (think: 48 Hour Film projects). These kinds of hacks still happen, and when focused — like this incredible tiny hackathon that helped the city of Washington, DC radically open up its legal code—they can be wildly effective platforms for production and (despite earlier grumbles) for community building — in-group community building.

Radical Librarianship: how ninja librarians are ensuring patrons' electronic privacy

Libraries provide access to information and protect patrons' right to explore new ideas, no matter how controversial or subversive. Libraries are where all should be free to satisfy any information need, be it for tax and legal documents, health information, how-to guides, historical documents, children's books, or poetry. And protecting unfettered access to information is important whether that research is done using physical books or online search engines. But now it has become common knowledge that governments and corporations are tracking our digital lives, and that surveillance means our right to freely research information is in jeopardy.
