CV2 | collaboration | voice | vision
David Cole, owner. I work at the intersection of creative learning, college and career readiness, literacy and technology. I'm currently a research fellow at Manylabs.org, an initiative funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, which brings together makers, educators and scientists to work on open tools and data science. A former English and writing instructor with experience in publishing and online learning, I've developed collaboration platforms for classrooms and professional development and led curriculum design projects in and out-of-school, including STEM2STEAM, youth internships and service learning. I'm currently working on 21st Century Notebooking, a writing-meets-making program that combines low-cost electronics with journals and sketchbooks, using the traditional paper notebook as a tool for prototyping. The project focuses on the ways in which the rituals and routines of craft, inquiry and artistic practice can be combined with introductory electronics, fabrication techniques and open data to build multiple literacies connected with production-centered learning.
