Helping technology and humanity work together. In Africa for Africa.
Fell down the Lean-Agile rabbit hole in 2007 and still enjoying the fall. Has run teams from 1 to 30 people in both start-up and corporates. Working on the software production value stream and at the code-face when possible, although mostly zoomed out to customer and business development.
Volunteers helping kids learn to code at CoderDojo since 2012, as part of Coder:LevelUp coding community non-profit work.
The loop of joy:
- Ooh, I have an idea…
- it works!
In my work at CoderDojo, I realised this is what we are aiming at helping kids discover (and also helps grown-ups too!).
This talk will cover:
- Starter pathways to crank the creative joy engine in young learners
- The MIT Media Lab “Life-long Kindergarten” 4P’s:
Passion, Peers, Projects and Play, and how they drive the creative learning pathway
- How to not lose connection to enjoying it (kids and adults)
Come curious, with hope for joy!
