The Maker Addict Movement

BY LIZ NEELY
@ VOL 25 ON MAR 05, 2013

Liz Neely is a maker addict. She creates things that have no purpose; only to see if she could make something out of her own imagination. She does not believe in the impossible and therefore challenges others to thing freely and create because no matter the lack of experience you may have nor how impossioble it may seem, it can be made.

Maker Krewe

BY OSKIE CREECH
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 08, 2014

"I didn't teach her how to do it, another student had taught her how to do it who'd been to Maker Krewe and learned it from somebody else."

In Marker Krewe from PechaKucha New Orleans Vol. 12, Oskie Creech shares over eleven years of experience teaching in classrooms with what he views as overly structured schooldays. In 2009, he created summer camps allowing children the autonomy to create their own schedules. Oskie created Maker Krewe to provide the time, tools, expertise and community support that kids need in order to grow as creative problem solvers.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 22nd, 2017.

 Explorer L’(in)visible

BY HILKE VERVAEKE
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 15, 2016

Explorer l’(in)visible dans l’enseignement. L’évolution de notre société demande une adaptation de l’enseignement du métier de designer. Les modes de vie changent, donc le métier change également. Les futurs designers devront tenir compte de l’invisibilité des produits suite à l’évolution technique/ technologique. Une approche multidisciplinaire plaçant l’utilisateur au centre des préoccupations est primordiale. Des nouvelles approches et méthodologies sont à explorer pour répondre aux attentes/besoins des consommateurs de demain.

 

Hilke Vervaeke est Designer Industriel de profession.

Elle a créé la société Focus-id, bureau de design en 2007. En 2014, elle est co-fondatrice avec Daniel Steenhaut de la société ID-scéno à Marrakech en Maroc.

Hilke s’investit dans plusieurs domaines d’activités:

  • La conception et la mise en œuvre d’équipements et de pièces techniques intégrant les nouvelles technologies.
  • La conception et la mise en œuvre d’équipements publics et d’objets, plus didactique, tel que la scénographie des musées, la signalétique, les bornes et les panneaux d‘information, … .

C’est avec beaucoup d’enthousiasme qu’elle prend part, sans compter, dans des projets qui présentent une approche sociétale pédagogique et participative.

Elle enseigne depuis 2005 à l’Institut supérieure des Arts, Saint-Luc à Liège, Belgique dans la section design industriel.
