This week, Learning is Open talks with Jay Silver. Jay is Founder and CEO of JoyLabz, the makers of Makey Makey, a way to connect any object to a computer and now a staple at maker spaces everywhere. He was the first ever Maker Research Scientist at Intel and is on the board of Maker Ed. Jay’s MIT PhD topic was World as Construction Kit. Jay is a great explainer of the maker sensibility and we talk a lot about how teachers can take that sensibility into the classroom to spark creativity.
