New videos: GEMMA, NeoPixels, and PiFace!

maker, teaching

Reflection on my teaching and the tools I use has long been a part of my teaching practice, and I have a few new videos to share.

The first is from a project I did at the end of winter break, when we got lucky with an extra snow day. This gave me an opportunity to play with the Adafruit GEMMA, a small microcontroller designed for wearables. Here’s the video:


Also, I’ve been teaching a new afterschool Scratch workshop this winter, and I got a new tool for the Raspberry Pi that is perfect for introducing physical computing and interaction. It’s called the PiFace Digital, and the video below gives a quick tour of this exciting new add-on.
