Spring is coming, and even the researchers (like me) living in northern parts of the world begin to wake up from their hibernation.
This researcher can first be seen at "Naperot ja nykytaide"(Toddlers and contemporary art) -seminar at Kiasma on 6.4.2016. There he will be speaking about teaching at Arts & Craft School Robotti: understanding technology and making art.
Just a week after the first sighting you can spot the said researcher again at ITK 2016 (Interactive Technology in Education 2016) - conference. Where he will first be appearing on Wednesday 13.4.2016 at the researcher meeting, where he will be talking about "Maker Movement -creating knowledge through basic intention." - An article he managed to fiddle together during his hibernation month. Then on Friday, you can hear him talking about different views on teaching programming at the Ohjelmoinnin filosofiaa (Philosophy of programming) -debate.
When the first flowers begin appearing (hopefully) here in north you can spot the researcher taking a plane to the UK and talking at the in this place-conference at the School of Art & Design in Nottingham Trent University. Most likely the researcher in question will present the same article on maker movement he did just a few weeks earlier at ITK-conference. But this time, he will probably do it even better.
If you meet this researcher, don't be scared. He is quite tame and most likely will respond to greetings. He can also tell you about the newly started Arts@School- project ( a part of the bigger Artsequal research initiative) in Martinlaakso's school on "Creative coding, visual arts & embodiment."
