A first glimpse into my master-project

Both as a student and a teacher i know very well how hard it can be learn a complex technology. The obstacles can be overwhelming and difficult to take, especially in the beginning of the learning process. It’s no secret that most people lose their motivation at this point and end it before it has even begun to be fun.

A Creative Technologist is someone who overcomes these hurdles seemingly light-footedly, he’s/she’s someone who is by no means demotivated by all the difficulties.

How can such a mindset be built? This is what my master’s project “The Creative Technologist” it about.

This a first report. In the next months i will share the progress of this project here on my blog…
