Creative recycling

cassette  USB hub Image : Toxel Some of our students wouldn’t know what a cassette tape is. Nor a video tape. If you go to Toxel you will see how inventive some people on the planet have been in terms of recycling and creative imagination. We create a lot of e-waste in particular these days. We need to reinvent uses for it or its parts. There are SNES USB hubs and even lego hubs. I use a USB hub in class because the Macbook only has two USB ports. I need one for the board and I use a mouse because I am faster on that than the trackpad. Classrooms wait for nobody. The hub lets me connect USB drives, charge my iPad or back up my Macbook as I teach. It simplifies everything. I’d love to have a retro hub and know we are doing the green thing. I’d also like to see other ideas like this which are functionally creative as well as good contributions to sustainability.

  1. Sally, a lovely post. You reminded me of the long-forgotten tapes. Why not hold a brainstorming session with your students and see what creative ideas they come up with? I am sure they shall surprise all of us


  2. Sally, because of my engagement and interaction with your website, please allow me to refer you to this post. I am sure it shall inspire you with a great post


    • Look forward to taking a look at that soon.


    • I just took a look at it and will look for other things to flesh out those ideas. It makes some important points because engagement is different from involvement and then yes, you do have to question what the engagement is and might mean and whether it is valid in terms of site goals.
