This place is designed to show global experiences using technology and arts. Specifically I use programming tools like Etoys, Scratch, Python and movil apps (Android) to build a new educational model based on the raw material of XXI century: Creativity.
Originally this blog was created for a project initiated by me (Luis Galindo) in a Children’s Home in Santa Cruz – Bolivia, with the support of the OLPC with 3 Xo computers and a creative laboratory built from old desktop computers with Ubuntu and Sugar.
The work was focused on the construction of videogames and simulators through Etoys and Scratch. The aim was to work with creative programming tools in an environment with children who had never touched a computer.
The idea of the current blog is to show global education experiences using both technological and artistic tools to develop creativity.
I’m worked with Scratch in two schools teaching Spanish in the south of France. The aim was to show that with programming tools such as Scratch we can move into any field of learning environment in a creative way.
In Bolivia, where remain our 3 Xo laptops, it is developing a project to work with Scratch (you can follow here the information on this new initiative).
This space is also aimed to people that I know around the world who are working, experimenting and researching in education, technology and art, you can follow these publications here.
