Mozilla launches Webmaker Badges, linked to Persona, so you can brag about your mad coding skillz

Mozilla launches Webmaker Badges, linked to Persona, so you can brag about your mad coding skillz | Computer Science in Middle and High Schools | Scoop.it

As a primer, Mozilla recently debuted its Webmaker program in hopes of making it “easy for anyone to make something amazing on the web, learning skills as they go.” Webmaker Badges fit seamlessly with that purpose, throwing gamification and bragging rights into the mix.

Admittedly, at first look these badges feel like a novelty more than anything else, but Mozilla has an interesting plan: to integrate them into Persona identities (which we covered here). With it, Mozilla hopes that these badges will provide a “lasting record” of a user’s capabilities and achievements, so they can show off “their new skills to teachers, classmates, peers or future colleges and employers.” That’s an ambitious goal.

Arduino-compatible Quirkbot lets kids build robots out of straws

“ One year ago, a simple and very cool construction kit for children came out; called Strawbees, it lets kids develop their inner engineer by making all kinds of structures out of ordinary drinking straws and cardboard. Now, a spinoff project has emerged: a “toy to make toys” called Quirkbot. Quirkbot is a small 8MHz microcontroller…”

Transform Your School: Practical Tips for Starting a Makerspace @DIANARENDINA

"Makerspaces are an amazing way to bring STEAM, creativity and informal learning into your school, but with so much information out there, many educators aren’t sure of where to get started. In this session, you will get ideas and inspiration on how to bring the Maker Education Movement into your school. Topics covered will include: cultivating a Maker culture, getting student input, finding space, securing funds and donations, gathering supplies, making it happen, and sharing with others. Throughout the presentation, you will see examples from the creation of our school’s library Makerspace, as well as examples from other schools."
