During today’s Media Maker Time at Linfield, students soldered little Halloween ghosts, flew our quadcopter and took aerial photos, and started learning to code with Codecademy.
My project for the day was to try out JuxtaposeJS from Knight Lab. It’s super fun and easy!
Media Maker Time is funded by a mini-grant from Linfield’s current STEM Initiative, and I’m co-facilitating with my Mass Communication colleague Michael Huntsberger. We had eight students attend our first session and will continue to meet every Friday afternoon this fall. This activity was inspired by the rise of makerspaces in higher ed, and partly informed by the great faculty I talked with for this MediaShift story.
