NCompass Live: Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Using the Arduino to Develop Coding Literacy in Libraries - Recorded Online Session 

Description

In this talk, John LeMasney will discuss the trials, tribulations, and successes of creating and teaching classes on Arduino as programming at several New Jersey libraries across the state. Arduino is an open source hardware platform for learning about and making electronics prototypes to scratch your own itch.

It is a well-supported, low-threshold-of-entry approach of inviting those new to electronics to create their own working circuits at a low monetary cost and little existing knowledge. I'll demonstrate what Arduino is in the larger sense, and why it's fun and easy to get started with Arduino.

Presenter: John LeMasney, Owner, LeMasney Consulting, is a technologist, consultant, and open source advocate working in New Jersey and beyond. He often works with schools, businesses and libraries to develop technology-oriented training, programming and solutions for all kinds of people.

In this monthly feature of NCompass Live, the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, will discuss the tech news of the month and share new and exciting tech for your library.
