Drexel University’s Learning Innovation Program launches today with a speaker series featuring John Maeda, the Global Head of Computational Design and Inclusion at web developer Automattic.
He’s been a driving force behind the morphing of STEM curricula — science, technology, engineering and math — into STEAM, with the addition of art.
With advanced degrees in engineering, design and business, Maeda says technology and art need to embrace business and capital in order to truly thrive.
“My mission is to connect engineering with the arts and business,” he explains. “A lot of my work is helping creative people to be less afraid of money.”
John Maeda spoke with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller.
