Dale just finished his keynote at the Education Conference at CES. He rocked the room, inspired the attendees, talked about kits, education, and the maker movement. Way to go Dale!

The keynote was getting a lot of tweeting. Here are some highlights (from Twitter member David Kleeman):

  • Playing @ #ces #kap2012 – 1st shot is elements of an LED “throwy.” Second shot…I win! @make http://lockerz.com/s/173851796 http://lockerz.com/s/173851811
  • @dalepd @make magazine @ #ces #kap2012 – “making creates evidence of learning”
  • @dalepd @make magazine showed this video @ #ces #kap2012 of kids inventing – stay for the pinball machine! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuiZpfYgC3o&feature=youtube_gdata_player
  • @dalepd @make #ces #kap2012 – Piaget “to understand is to invent.” Don’t throw info at kids; help them identify and apply elements and tools
