TEDxPioneerValley - Jay Silver - Makey Makey & The Maker's Mindset

Jay Silver, a research assistant and Ph.D. candidate in Media Arts and Sciences in the MIT Media Lab's Lifelong Kindergarten Group, demonstrates a new technology called Makey Makey that turns the whole world into a computer mouse. He says of its genesis: "There I am, at an UnSchooling Camp, running a workshop, and a teen makes a musical looper out of an ordinary hula-hoop. Who would think of a hula-hoop as a music controller? This is the mindset of Makers. And watch out, because the Maker Movement is coming, and it's dangerous to existing paradigms of education and industrial production! What tools will the Makers use?About TEDxx = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
