Middle School Maker Journey: Review, Rethink, and Retool

Middle School Maker Journey: Review, Rethink, and Retool | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
As the end of the school year is almost here (already?), our Digital Shop capstones are underway in earnest. Approaching the end of the program's first year, we’re asking ourselves, "What's gone well? What could be better? How should our program evolve for 2016-17?" In this month's post, I share some of our thoughts regarding enhancements to our makerspace design, curriculum, scheduling, and my own skill set.

Project-Based Engineering for Kids - @Instructables

Project-Based Engineering for Kids - @Instructables | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
This is a collection of project-based engineering lessons for kids. Project-based learning allows students to control the direction and pace of their learning. Activities that promote investigation, critical thinking, and hands-on subject matter are also central to project-based learning.

These project-based lessons focus on basic principles of physics, structural, and mechanical engineering. Physical models are built from a similar set of materials that can be easily sourced online (links are provided in-lesson).

All of the project plans in this collection are designed to be used in an after school enrichment setting, though you may use and modify these ideas for other not-for-profit purposes provided you cite The Workshop for Young Engineers.

This is a growing and improving collection of lesson plans. Please comment to share your ideas to improve lessons and photos of your designs.

How to Organize Your littleBits Collection

How to Organize Your littleBits Collection | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
Back in the summer of 2014 when our makerspace was really starting to take shape, I won a littleBits ProLibrary in their Summer of STEAM contest.  The library came with the now optional wall storage but I knew that I didn’t have a wall space where I wanted to put it.  I wanted to be able to secure the bits when I was out, but also to be able to monitor students as they were using the bits, and there just wasn’t a good place for them at the time.  So I had to get creative in finding a new solution.

Enable & Disable Night Shift in iOS Quickly from Control Center - OSXDaily | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
Night Shift in iOS causes the device display to readjust to a warmer color spectrum, thereby reducing the displays output of blue light. This makes the screen of an iPhone or iPad not only more pleasant to look at in the evening and dark hours, but it also is easier on the eyes and potentially offers some health benefits as well.
