Like art? Share this with your Art teachers - but I also could see how this would help with MANY subjects!
The School Programs Department provides hands-on and online educational resources that make the Walters’ collections accessible to the K-12 school community.

"Makerspaces, STEAM labs and fab labs are popping up in schools across the country. Makerspaces provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering and tinkering."
Makerspaces, sometimes also referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn.
Keep an eye out for this topic, more later! I'm really impressed also with the Makerspace that the Nashville Public Limitless Library was crowdsourcing and building back in Feb! I saw them on an ISTE Board of Directors trip and was blown away!!!!!
When you hear the word blogger, what image comes to mind? A sacred group of people anointed by the All Mighty with special powers who unleash their acerbic editorial tongue lashing from 40-story skyscrapers in major cities around the world?

Putting together a blog post can be simple. Every post has a basic anatomy - and we're here to teach you how to write a blog post - the right way!
Loved this, @SocialNicole !!
Esp. the Image part. Of course, I DO go overboard on those -- thinking each section needs a pic (Flickr CC & PicMonkey are my best friends & from #4 of your related posts I guess you must know em, too! ) That's why I wrote a blog post called 10 Tips for Digital Photo Editing & Fun.
..... But umm where's the Subhead to this post?
6 Easy Ways to Engage Your Readers?
But srsly, love this blog - always great content! I guess I should start my blog post for today, huh? Instead I'm watching SNL & surfing the interwebs. Don't be jealous.
Great article! Even if it's a bit of Shameless self promotion ;-) Makerspaces don't have to be only 3D Printers & Green Screens!
What was left out of the interview was you can create a Makerspaces school!
• Have kids create, film, & produce a Cooking Show in the FACS room!
• Have kids design a personal LOGO then create cool pottery, fire it in the Art Room & paint it with their brand.
• My kids have also designed & created pencil holders & bookends around their favourite Game APP in the TechEd room like Angry Birds! http://flic.kr/p/aDf9ue - then they can write a script and "sell" them on our TV show like an InfoMercial!
"Creating an eBook online is no rocket science and anyone with the rudimentary knowledge of how to use internet can get his/her eBook up and viral in a couple of minutes provided the content part of it is already written in a word document. I find the typing and editing part the most difficult stage in this process; however, if you just want to set up a short ebook for your students then that would not take you much time.
Just a couple of weeks ago I shared here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a list of great apps to use to create eBooks on iPad and I received several emails following that post and some of you asked for tutorials on this topic. Here is one of my favorite tutorials on how to create an eBook on iPad that I always recommend to my fellow teachers. Check it out below and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy"
