  • 1. Standing on the Shoulders of Hackers: An Introduction to An Introduction to Arduino Daniel Soltis OSHUG Meeting Feb 2011Thursday, 10 February 2011
  • 2. What does learning look like in an open hardware community?Thursday, 10 February 2011
  • 3. many things to learn Arduino as a Tool how do I use Arduino? how do I improve my skills in interactive hardware design? how do i transfer these skills to electronics, engineering, software development, etc.? Arduino as an Open Source Project how do I understand the Arduino schematics? how do I design hardware compatible with Arduino? how do I make a different/better Arduino? how do I understand the Arduino code base? how do I contribute to the Arduino source code?Thursday, 10 February 2011
  • 4. (my teaching experience) Arduino as a Tool how do I use Arduino? how do I improve my skills in interactive hardware design? how do i transfer these skills to electronics, engineering, software development, etc.? Arduino as an Open Source Project how do I understand the Arduino schematics? how do I design hardware compatible with Arduino? how do I make a different/better Arduino? how do I understand the Arduino code base? how do I contribute to the Arduino source code?Thursday, 10 February 2011

  • 19. hardware vs. software? 1 5 10 15 20 25 30 A B C D E F G H I J 1 5 10 15 20 25 30 teaching tools are less effective without physical objects/demonstration: not as scalable or distributed.Thursday, 10 February 2011
  • 20. ? hardware vs. software? inherently multidisciplinary. needs for skills in hardware, software, and design can serve as a leveller.Thursday, 10 February 2011
  • 21. hardware vs. software? digital curricula and tools to address physical needs.Thursday, 10 February 2011
  • 22. hardware vs. software? greater emphasis on personal, offline interactions.Thursday, 10 February 2011
  • 23. simultaneous strengths and limitations multiple points of entry: address different learners at different levels difficult to figure out where to start self-driven learning and teaching: high engagement and enthusiasm uneven effectiveness, rigor, follow-through relationships are key: essential to sustain communities of learning can be difficult to engage new communitiesThursday, 10 February 2011
