“Cardboard @MakeyMakey @Scratch Instruments” shared notes at @Teach21c. #MakerEd

I’m leading a Teach21 professional development workshop this afternoon, Cardboard, MakeyMakey, and Scratch Instruments. Here’s the description:
By adding the Arts to traditional STEM goals, (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), we can embrace design, creativity, and integration and discuss interdisciplinary possibilities. Let us embrace STEAM by crafting cardboard instruments with conductive elements, programming notes and sounds in Scratch, and using the MakeyMakey to provide interactivity while discussing other project ideas and opportunities.

8th grade instructional performance pieces with @soshea_o at @The_School inspired by @yokoono’s #Grapefruit! #artsed

I was blown away by  the Yoko Ono retrospective at the MoMA in September of 2015, Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960–1971. During a chat with music teacher, Sheila O’Shea, I spoke of the incredible exhibit and how I purchased the book Grapefruit which was full of instructional performance pieces penned in poetic bursts of words. Sheila was inspired to share this with her students, and they created original artwork to complement their interpretation of Grapefruit’s instructions.
