Welcome to Creation Culture

With the advent of makerspaces and 3d printing, the concept of creation takes on a new dimension: machines allow us to conceive, design and “print” a tangible object.  In module 14, we explore how libraries and other information environments are offering programming to assist and instruct users on how to create.

Thank you for your hard work on the research paper. I will be grading all week and will aim to everything done by the end of classes.

    Just when I thought I could take a week off from thinking about the Maker Movement. 😉 These creative approaches to learning are so inspiring to me…my daughters attend an inquiry-based school in SF, and the scope of their learning beyond the immediate project is truly exciting. I hope to be hired by their school one day, so I have good motivation to focus on hands-on education in my information science studies. Love this module!

    WOW! That module was spectacular and I so wish it could have been in the first module in this course. Not only did it make me cry two times it ignited my already deep passion in DIY in my personal life and now I can see that I can continue this passion in my career!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @michael this was a fantastic module and great way to wrap up the course – thank you!

    two things:
    -I had a major obsession with the titanic back in elementary school
    -we hang a Death Star on our tree (though not nearly as cool as yours) and also set out a santa-yoda every year! 🙂
