Updated June 16, 2022 from Nijmegen, Netherlands
Don’t worry I am still currently residing in Waimea, Hawaiʻi Island, but to be geographically correct I am writing this from beautiful Nijmegen in the Netherlands.
Still buzzing from the excitement of completing my first year in my new position as K-8 Capstone Coordinator. It has brought me immense joy to have the privilege and honor to guide 62 students in grades 5 and 8 in designing and building their culminating projects. I will be using this summer to dig deeper into students’ creativity and how they can use digital tools to manifest their ideas.
My work with the Ed3DAO has expanded with my new role as the community growth manager for the online Ed3 Educators NFT community. I work with an amazing team of educators to build and grow our community through Discord and Twitter. You can visit the website to link to all of those.
My live performance schedule has picked up a little as businesses open up and more people get comfortable socializing again. You can view my updated schedule here.
On the listening end, I have been diving deeper into hybrids of electronic music with other musical forms. This has led me to artists such as Anthony Braxton and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Over the past two years, I got turned onto ambient music and that interest is spreading into general sonic soundscapes.
The newsletter is a great place to go to get familiar with all the new things I have been learning about. In general, it is how web3: NFTs, blockchain, and on-chain tokens can catalyze change in education.
In addition, I have been exploring ways to build on my experience with design thinking through something called music thinking by Christof Zurn. Combined with my interest in human-centered design, I am continuing on my pathway toward the creation of a toolkit of problem-solving techniques.
