FREE e-Book: Meaningful Making: Projects and Inspirations for FabLabs and Makerspaces | FabLearn Fellows

FREE e-Book: Meaningful Making: Projects and Inspirations for FabLabs and Makerspaces | FabLearn Fellows | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Around the world, there is a new movement to use the new tools and technology of the Maker Movement to give children authentic learning experiences beyond textbooks and tests. The Stanford FabLearn Fellows are a group of 18 educators who are working at the forefront of this new movement in all corners of the globe. They teach in FabLabs, makerspaces, classrooms, libraries, community centers, and museums – all with the goal of making learning more meaningful in the modern world.

In this book, the FabLearn Fellows share projects, assessment strategies, lesson planning guides, and ideas from their learning spaces. In over 200 pages illustrated with color photos of real student work, the Fellows take you on a tour of the future of learning, where children make sense of the world by making things that matter to them and their communities. To read this book is to rediscover learning as it could be and should be – a joyous, mindful exploration of the world, where the ultimate discovery is the potential of every child.

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

In this presentation (PPTx file here), I share some of my favorite resources for teaching the content as well as some pedagogical tips.  Some of these resources are found in an article I wrote for National Geographic or have been shared on this site earlier.  Here are some pedagogical tips to APHG students about food systems:  

  • Tip#1: Don’t demonize agribusiness or romanticize the family farm. 
  • Tip #2: Use data and maps.  Here is a map in ArcGIS online on rural land use activities with a handy dandy instruction guide, ready to go (many more APHG GeoInquiries from ESRI set to be released soon). 
  • Tip #3: Connect them personally into the web of food systems and show how it impacts them. 
  • Tip #4: Let this be one of those units that connects to all the themes of the course, especially population, culture, political, and the environment.

3 Reasons Coding Should Be a Core Subject by  Mark Engelberg @thinkfun  | Getting Smart | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
The push to make computer science a core subject in K-12 schools is on of the hottest, most popular educational reform issues of our time. England has already done it, and other countries have plans to follow suit. Here in the U.S., everyone from politicians to parents is talking about it. In a recent poll commissioned by Google, two-thirds of parents said that computer science should be required learning in schools. And those parents are right. Here’s why…

Hillbrook’s Maker Space | The Awesome World of Making @ Hillbrook

Hillbrook’s Maker Space | The Awesome World of Making @ Hillbrook | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Before I joined the Hillbrook school community to help them build out their maker education program, a long standing history of learning about materials and real world building skills existed within our strong arts program. As a veteran middle school science teacher, I explored merging the hands on work kids were already doing in art, with topics in STEM. This exploration took two significant strands for me as an educator and for the school. The first strand involved the design of a physical space, which we called the iLab. This formerly obsolete computer room, was converted into a makerspace to promote engineering in the sciences. The second strand emphasized the use of constructionist learning theory and student choice within the curriculum. This new style of curriculum was named Problem based Science.

During year one, the makerspace essentially lived in a closet in the iLab. We had hand tools, a few power tools, and an Epilog mini laser cutter. We already had lots of NTX robotics kits for kids to experiment with and more e-waste than we knew how to store.

Is Cultural Appropriation Always Wrong?

Is Cultural Appropriation Always Wrong? | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

We sometimes describe this mingling as 'cross-pollination’ or ‘cross-fertilization’ — benign, bucolic metaphors that obscure the force of these encounters. When we wish to speak more plainly, we talk of ‘appropriation’ — a word now associated with the white Western world’s co-opting of minority cultures.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, October 13, 2015 3:09 PM

The distinction between cultural diffusion and cultural appropriation can get very blurry, and I doubt that there is a ‘final word’ on the topic.  What is perceived as culturally inappropriate or exploitative is not clear cut.  In addition to this NY Times article about the concept of cultural appropriation, below are a few articles that can be used to discuss this idea.  These topics are by nature controversial, and you can use your discretion to know which articles are appropriate for your students given their maturity level.  I don’t agree with all the authors of these articles; I also don’t think these issues are perfect examples of cultural appropriation, but that is why they are helpful for a discussion. 


Questions to Ponder: What pushes something from cultural diffusion to cultural appropriation?  What makes these examples inappropriate or okay in your estimation? When do you feel cultural commodification is 'crossing the line' or is everything marketable fair game?  What are other examples of cultural appropriation that you can think of?
