Maker Ed is a ‘WAY’ not a ‘THING.’ -@KrissyVenosdale

Maker Ed is a ‘WAY’ not a ‘THING.’ -@KrissyVenosdale | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ If you’re about to build a MakerSpace in your school, don’t ask yourself what things you need. Ask yourself what ways you can do things differently. How can you turn your writing assignment into an open ended choice where kids can be more creative? How can you incoporate robotics into that book that already brings joy into your kindergarten classroom? How can you rearrange the room you already have, or use spraypaint to tone down a mismatched scheme of color to allow for student thought to fill the canvas of the room? How can kids drive the curriculum so that they are not solving problems written by someone in an office far away, but solving real problems that make their hearts beat to come to school. It’s just like the force. It’s not a thing. It’s a way. And it’s about finding a better one. Making school more.”

“ My finger painting childhood aside, it's no wonder STEM education is being touted with some urgency. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that by 2020 the U.S. will create 1.4 million jobs in computer science-related fields. If current trends continue, U.S. citizens with the necessary skills and experience will fill only 30% of those jobs. Today, like a reconfigurable horse to the rescue, LEGO Education announced its new robot-based learning system, which it hopes teachers will incorporate into their curricula.

The 'Maker Movement' Has a Place in All Disciplines - LiteracyDAILY

The 'Maker Movement' Has a Place in All Disciplines - LiteracyDAILY | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ In most people’s minds, the “maker movement” in education is associated with STEM-related concepts and technology-based activities. There is good reason for that; it’s an approach to project-based learning (PBL) that encourages experimenting, building, and playing with different concepts. However, my entry point into this hot trend has been primarily through the unusual route of literacy.”

Upcoming iOS 9.3 Update a Potential Game Changer for Teaching with iPads

Upcoming iOS 9.3 Update a Potential Game Changer for Teaching with iPads | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ Those of us who use iPads in education were excited to hear about some new features in the upcoming iOS 9.3. It looks like Apple is making an effort in improving how iPads work in the classroom. A common complaint about iPads in schools was that they are difficult to share amongst multiple classes. Now, with 9.3, administrators and teachers will be able to have a lot more control over their student's individual iPads. Managing a class set of iPads has never been the easiest task. With this update, it should become a much better experience. Also, students will be able to “share” iPads in a much better and “cleaner” way. Individual profiles can be created so that multiple users can use the same iPad.”

iPad Pro: An Educator's First Impressions

iPad Pro: An Educator's First Impressions | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"My iPad Pro arrived this past week to my excitement. I have used it for just a few days now at this point. There are absolutely no regrets about this large purchase (I joked that it did cost exactly half of what I paid for my first car!). I am thoroughly impressed by this device. The larger size of this iPad gives it a new device feeling, as opposed to just a refreshed model of the same dimensions. I hope to do a series of posts outlining my use of the iPad Pro. This first post will just outline some initial thoughts on the device, and who I think it is best suited for. Readers of this blog will know that I’m a huge supporter of using iPads for content creation as opposed to just content consumption. The iPad Pro, along with the new features of iOS 9, bring with it many more possibilities of doing so."
