Shailoh Phillips
For the past 10 years Shailoh has been working as a media artist, philosopher, activist and educator. Her educational practice is mainly dedicated to teaching hands-on interactive technology workshops, game design and digital interactives. She also works in developing digital media curricula for schools, makerspaces and art institutions. The pedagogical designs she creates include technology tinkering, playful exercises in critical thinking, strategies for decolonizing the mind and institutions, digital literacy skills, and teacher training programs. All this is grounded in a connectivist and (de)constructionist approach to learning networks: learning together, learning by (un)doing. She has worked with various institutions and schools, including Pier K, ZB45, Brazil Youth and Media Foundation, VPRO, Rijksmuseum, MIT Media Lab and Bouwkeet.
