I’ll be live on the interwebs this Wednesday!

I’ve been invited by the Institute of Play in NYC to be on a live-over-the-internet panel discussion of why DIY tinkering and physical computing is important for children:

“Join Playtime Online Wednesday, March 6 from 12–1PM EST to learn about physical computing and why it’s important for young people to think creatively, critically, and iteratively.”

I’ll be joined on the panel some great folks, including ITP alums (and buddies of mine) Don Miller and Syed Salahuddin, as well as Kylie Peppler, who’s heading up the Make2Learn initiative out of the University of Indiana.

Hope you can tune in!
