Hawaii Association of School Librarians Conference

This past Saturday (April 30) I had the pleasure to present two hands-on workshops for the Hawaii Association of School Librarians Conference here on Oahu.

The first session was an into to the MakeyMakey using Scratch. Most of the attendees had not heard of MakeyMakeys and only a few were familiar with Scratch. After a brief give them just enough to get them started...they set out making controllers for Scratch games.

The second session was on making simple circuits. Using coin cell batteries, LEDs and copper tape, I instructed the session on how to make a simple circuit. After people got this first circuit working (and there were some that didn't work, so they had to problem solve) they brainstormed other ways they could use this with their students.

I wasn't the only 'Iolani staff member at the conference. Gabe Yanagihara and Michael Fricano also did sessions.
