What's in this episode?

Full length rough cut interview with Sam Patterson, Puppet Master & Makerspace Coordinator, Echo Horizon School, San Francisco 

We talk about the cross over between humanities and computing, engaging students in creative activities and questions, using puppets as avatars to open up teaching and learning opportunities, and the promise of voice recorded feedback as an alternative to the marking slog. This is the full length Sam Patterson episode, following on from the #30 KANO takeover which you can listen in to here: http://theedtechpodcast.libsyn.com/30-kano-takeover-creative-computing-in-schools-maker-spaces-and-libraries

Sample quotes:

Interview with Sam Patterson, Puppet Master & Makerspace Coordinator, Echo Horizon School, San Francisco 
‘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.’

‘I’ve got one puppet who has 3 legs in his chest. his name is notorious LED. I’m always looking for more ideas.'

‘the human voice carries a lot of information; giving students feedback is an emotionally charged situation’

'then i started telling people it meant puppets and technology usually excellent!'

‘i wonder if i can make puppets’? ‘the kids were like why are you making all these puppets.’?

Have a good week!
