Join NEXMAP for a back to school series,”Literacy, Craft, Civic Engagement – A Paper Circuitry Project for L2P 2.0,” spanning August and September that explores how young people can use paper circuitry to voice their opinions and showcase creative expression. The NEXMAP team will help both educators and young people explore how to use paper circuitry to write a letter to the next president and provide templates for easily doing so. This series of webinars features teacher leaders from California, Texas and Ohio and addresses the many ways paper and electronics support multiple literacies and creative learning. The first session, Part I, on 8/18, introduced sample projects from contributors Kate Hodges, Molly Adams and Anna Marie Warren. The second session, Part II on 8/25, dug into practical implementation strategies for working with students and sharing the approach and practices with colleagues. The third and final webinar on 9/8 will feature Jeannine Huffman and highlight opportunities for more complex paper circuitry projects using the ATtiny85 microcontroller.
This hangout was produced in support of Letters to the Next President 2.0, a project engaging youth in civic participation on issues and topics that matter to them in the US Presidential Election. It was also co-streamed at connectedlearning.tv.
