Types of work that I do
Alessandra Affinito is the Youth Services Manager at the Saint Paul Public Library, George Latimer Central Branch. Previously, she spent seven years as a Children's Librarian at the Chatham Square branch of the New York Public Library in Chinatown. She's especially passionate about innovative STEAM projects, language learning, and science fiction graphic novels! When she's not at the library you can probably find her playing an overly complicated board game, or swinging from the ceiling on aerial silks.
I especially enjoyed reading your webpage entries, seeing your personalities shine through and relating them to my own experiences online. I'd love to know more about how I (or other users) can get involved in making their own digital tapestries, or contribute to the conversation on your theme question. At my library we've done a lot of sew-able circuit programs, and this would be an amazing way to take those classes to the next level!
Your creativity and innovation are displayed beautifully in this project, I hope you continue adding to your quilt and taking on the big questions about our digital experiences!
Kate is the Director of Instructional Design in the Boot Camps division of online education provider, 2U. She oversees the development of intensive short courses that teach adults in-demand technology skills. She's worked at the intersection of media, tech and education for over 15 years and obsesses over the ways those things influence our culture--and how we can harness them for good! Before working at 2U, Kate was lucky enough to geek out on this stuff with fellow nerds at Mouse, the San Francisco Film Society and the Jacob Burns Film Center.
Superb work! I'll definitely be on the lookout out for this when I visit Governor's Island this summer!
