  4. 4. ALASKA photo credit: Andrea Pokrzywinski, Kodiak, AK “Reflection: Hack Your Notebook with Paper Circuits” — Andrea Pokryzwinski, Kodiak, AK “…The integration of paper circuitry will enhance my physical science unit on electricity. This was the first time that I had built a parallel circuit and then a series circuit where the conceptual differences really clicked. I have taught this lesson many times before. But with the application of an art project in my notebook, it finally makes sense. I am a very visual learner and this process really helped me understand the foundations of electric circuits at a deeper level. I will be a better teacher of this concept in the future. I want my students to experience this kind of insight into the basics of electrical circuits through creative play.”
  5. 5. “Writing with Light: The Western Pennsylvania Writing Project Experiments with Paper Circuitry” — from PittEd, School of Education Magazine; Univ. of Pittsburgh, March 2016 ”…The 2st Century Notebooking Inquiry Project has served as a natural springboard for teacher leaders to emerge within their schools while tinkering with multi-modal composition in the form of writing and flat copper tape, tiny batteries, LED lights, and microprocessors.” PITTSBURGH credit: Kandy Newell, W. Pennsylvania Writing Project
  6. 6. LEADERSHIP Jeannine Huffman and Dr. Lanette Jimerson, Dir. of the MUSE (Multicultural Urban Secondary Education) MAT Graduate School of Education, UC Berkeley, at the Program Your Pages workshop at ManyLabs. Teachers Teaching Teachers — One Story of Scale Jeannine Huffman, a faculty member at Teachers College of San Joaquin, enrolled in a 21st Century Notebooking workshop at the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose in June 2014. Since then she has introduced paper circuitry, note booking practices and resource materials created by NEXMAP and CV2 to more than 400 teachers in hands-on professional development sessions; she’s shared the same projects with more than 300 youth; she has published on the work; and as a STEM ambassador for the region, she’s presented it to superintendents in five counties (Merced, Toulomne, San Joaquin, Alameda, Sonoma).
  7. 7. Example: an open data prototype that integrates artistic and scientific journaling uses a rechargeable battery and a wifi dev kit from Particle.io. The connected notebook displays real- time data from NOAA.gov for the height of the tide at a beach north of the Golden Gate Bridge. CONNECTED LEARNING Natalie Freed, designer, commissioned by NEXMAP.org “Ten years ago something as simple as a networked thermometer required some understanding of electrical engineering. Now it’s a Saturday-afternoon project for a beginner” - Jon Bruner, O’Reilly Radar, Dec 10, 2014 Open Data/Open Minds is a prototyping initiative that explores the possibilities of connected learning, fabrication, open data and civic engagement. Working with craftsperson and CS instructor Natalie Freed, we’ve prototyped a connected notebook using a Wi-Fi dev board from Particle.io: the notebook records the height of the tide in real-time, pulling information from the internet into the notebook. A simple set of parallel circuits register the height of the tide whenever the circuit system — and the notebook — is on a network. OPEN DATA/OPEN MINDS

  11. 11. x Figure 8. Cover and example page from Illuminate Your Thinking (left) and educator’s circuit (right). This work has since inspired educators across the country to try out circuits in their own classrooms and academic disciplines, sharing such activities as illuminating poetry, creating light-up diagrams of cells, using light to tell stories. Some have even done reflective writing on their experiences, frustrations and lessons learned while building circuits in their notebooks. Educators have also gathered around an online community under the umbrella of 21st Century Notebooking (21st Century Notebooking, 2014). It is interesting to note that this is a community— language arts educators—not typically associated with electronics, and yet they’ve taken eagerly to Chapter: Paper Electronics with Circuit Stickers Jie Qi, Jennifer Dick & David Cole Makeology in K-12, Higher, and Informal Education: The Maker Movement and the Future of Learning Trial and error and the learning process is central to this project – the notebook becomes a record of a build process that combines familiar aspects of craft and construction with an exploration of electronics, culminating in a final product, something that can be shared as a demonstration of student learning (Nexmap, 2014). paper circuitry. This suggests that the medium and its supporting resources—the circuit book—is indeed flexible and accessible enough to allow traditionally non-technical communities to learn, adopt, and contribute new explorations in the world of interactive technologies.

Here we highlight 21st Century Notebooking, a STEAM- learning project that integrates circuit stickers and electronics with journals and sketchbooks, turning the traditional notebook into a tool for prototyping. A collaboration between NEXMAP, an experimental arts organization; CV2, an educational program developer; and the National Writing Project, 21st Century Notebooking explores the implications and affordances of paper electronics in the K-12 classroom (Nexmap, 2014). They present both circuit template activities and sample classroom projects that apply STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) concepts to required education standards and classroom learning (Maeda, 2014). Using light as a theme for ideation, narrative and the many skills that accompany project-based learning, these collaborators created two educator resource booklets, Illuminate Your Thinking and Program Your Pages—two of five booklets in a Hack Your Notebook series—which present the medium of paper electronics in the context of creative learning, debugging and systems thinking (Figure 8). As with the Circuit Sticker Sketchbook, these resources use templates and layouts for basic circuit building and include a visual prompt to introduce an artistic and narrative element. edited by Kylie Peppler, Erica Halverson, and Yasmin Kafai; publication date: forthcoming, June 2016
