SJSU librarian Bernd Becker and I are co-teaching a new course for Summer: "LIBR 287 Smart Objects" The original concept came from: http://wp.nmc.org/horizon2009/chapters/smart-objects/ We further explored library implications in this conference presentation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZc-xqcMlQo and now grad students at MIT's Media Lab are sharing their work with us collaboratively: http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=795 We should have the syllabus up shortly. We are using the SparkFun Inventor's Kit and two free books: Banzi's Getting Started with Arduino from Make and Margolis's Arduino Cookbook from O'Reilly.
I'm faculty at SJSU interested in teaching future librarians about the Maker movement.
My first event. Seems good.
