Maker Club: 10 things to know when you know nothing about 3D Printing

Maker Club: 10 things to know when you know nothing about 3D Printing | Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Most people I know have never even seen a 3D printer and ask me "what is 3D printing? How does it work?" and similar basic questions - so I thought I'd share what I usually tell my friends as I give them a demo of my printers in action.
Remember - this is for newbies - so if you've already been 3D printing, this post might be too basic for you. I'm just trying to keep it all super simple, sticking to the basics for people who know nothing yet, so I'm leaving out lots of gory, boring details.

Interessant pour les parents et les profs de primaire :)

Steve Whitmore's curator insight, August 31, 2015 7:32 AM

No doubt about it.  This is just some pretty cool stuff. It will put a smile on your face and get the creative juices going. 

 

Could one of these projects be used with a group of kids?  Could older ones build for younger ones?

"Today’s post is going to go in a different direction than you might expect. We’re not talking about another professional category. Instead, we’re going to talk about the best ways to unwind after a long day. But because I care about yours and my well-being, I’m not recommending Angry Birds. I want your mind to be stimulated, even while you’re enjoying some time away from work. Here’s some of what I’m looking forward to after clocking out tonight."

Indeed, students do turn to Google first. Teacher Librarians however, need to be directing students to other suitable search engines for their research.

I LOVE this graphic to help teachers (and librarians and tech specialists) see what works with different devices and operating systems. Unless you're super tech-savvy, this is a wonderful thing to have on hand as BYOD becomes more common-place. You know, of course, it's going to change in record time but it's a good starting point.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations 

Karen Ford's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:53 PM

I think "death by PowerPoint" is used so often because so many users have not "taken the pains to make a memorable..." presentation and the concept of creativity might not have even been considered. Not totally sure what the answer is, but I do believe that if more individuals could have their eyes opened to the potential that PowerPoint has, we might be able to get passed the "death" issue. That means we have to get the great ideas to the teachers and  their students... not just telling them, but perhaps showing them...

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, November 5, 2013 3:08 PM

PPT is here to stay. We should learn all of its features and be imaginative in how we use it.
