DESIGNING LEARNING EXPERIENCES
For the last three years, we’ve been collaborating with the Museum for Children in Warsaw, helping them prepare hands-on experiences for visiting families and schools. We have designed a big hands-on exhibition, a makerspace dedicated to children’s creations and a number of educational materials.
I have previously worked for a culture and lifelong education center JW3 in London, which introduced me to details of building programmes for learners of all ages. I have also volunteered for Interact UK, an interfaith non-profit youth organization funded by the British Council, where I taught a group of young designers. And more recently we’ve illustrated and designed learning materials and a curriculum for a British tech-ed startup Bright Little Labs (Detective Dot).
I am interested in using technology as a tool for creation and tinkering. I believe we should design less “black boxes” and make technology more inclusive.
I recently graduated from Creative Coding at SWPS University in Warsaw where I learned more programming and electronics myself.
During this summer I took part in MIT Media Lab Berlin – Signal & Noise prototyping workshop where, together with a group of students, designers, and technologists, we built a kit for hacking playgrounds to create an inclusive and inviting electronic music learning experience. I talked about this experience here.
One of my first projects after finishing art school was… selling computer viruses! Sort of at least.
It was a project I made with BabaAkcja, an art&design collective I co-founded in 2006. We experimented, tinkered and looked for our ways of developing as creators. Although my design interests have shifted since then, it remains an important building block in my carrier and development.
