Sample quotes:

Interview with Joanna Bersin, Head of Education, KANO (5:46 > 19:20)
‘It’s the creative computing company’
‘The first interaction with all of our products is building them yourselves and getting that sense of empowerment.’
‘I really saw the power of that blend between face to face interaction and online.’
(What drew you to Kano?) ‘The things that engaged young people’ ‘I was an early fan from the first Kickstarter’

Interview with Sam Patterson, Puppet Master & Makerspace Coordinator, Echo Horizon School, San Francisco (19:30 > 25:00)
‘I came to maker space teaching through English. I call myself a recovering English teacher.’
‘Kids will enthusiastically respond to things they are actually interested and as the maker space teacher i can get them interested in things.’
‘If you want to figure out how to do that difficult thing you’re going to need to READ the instructions.’
‘Everything we are doing in that space essential hinges on the central literacy activities of reading and writing.’
‘The more tech that becomes available the more opportunity that teachers have to create choice.’

Interview with Michael Luetjen, Computer Sci. & EdTech Lead Learner, Pine Crest School, Florida (25:00 > 34:30)
‘Pinecrest is absolutely at the forefront of curriculum engagement with the technologies.’
‘When they first went out I got myself a kit and it was like nothing i had ever seen before.’
‘Many people my age that’s what we grew up with…the beige machines.’
‘Computer science is really just the study of logic.’


Interview with Cory Roush, Literacy Specialist at Muskingum County Library System, Ohio (34:33 > 42:00)
‘Libraries are trying to figure out, so what is our role?’
‘In a society where we are very much focused on standardised testing…I really do find that the most beneficial learning is the type that you seek out for yourself.’
‘The figurehead for the workshop became Ada Lovelace.’
‘The instruction manual is a work of ART.’
