Summit

Paulo Blikstein How open hardware can revolutionize education (or how we might fail miserably) –

I design and research expressive technologies for learning, especially for underprivileged populations, as well as computational modeling and complexity science. (the talk text) if from his TED talk.

Blikstein’s research focus on how new technologies can deeply transform the learning of science, engineering, and mathematics. He creates and researches cutting-edge technologies for use in inner-city schools, such as computer modeling, robotics, and rapid prototyping, creating constructionist learning environments in which children learn science and mathematics by building sophisticated projects and devices. A recipient of the prestigious NSF Early Career Award, Blikstein holds a PhD. from Northwestern University, an MSc. from the MIT Media Lab, and a B.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of São Paulo.
