Pathbrite is proud to have been invited to participate in the the new Make Education Pavilion at this year’s Maker Faire 2012 Bay Area. The new Pavilion is organized around the theme of “The New School” and is expressly for kids, their families, and their teachers. You can find us in the Sequoia Pavilion of the San Mateo Event Center (map at left).
The team from Pathbrite will be teaching kids about the importance of documenting a lifetime of experiences, learning, and achievement by encouraging them to collect artifacts from their day at Maker using available tools such as smart phones or digital cameras. As artifacts are created — including photos, videos, audio files, PDFs and any other sort of digital breadcrumb — they can be emailed in real time to Pathbrite. We’ll curate all those artifacts and publish them in a Maker Experience Portfolio for everyone to see. Students, their teachers and their families can also elect to create personal portfolios as a way to remember their day at the Maker Faire and to experience the value of curation and publishing to tell a story.
Participants can email the artifacts they create from their day at Maker Faire to: firstname.lastname@example.org
