Watch the Recorded Webinar - Designing and Creating Maker Spaces  | Education | Scoop.it
“ Most educators think robotics, 3D printing and construction when they envision maker spaces, so how does this concept fit into the curriculum? By using design thinking as a framework for instruction, we will explore the possibilities for students to engage in empathy, seek new problems to solve, then prototype and test their solutions. When students start to create material for a larger audience, they ultimately need a way to make their ideas into physical realities. We will look at the pedagogy and the process to help make this happen.”

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift | Education | Scoop.it
Adilene Rodriguez admits she has always struggled with academics. Especially in middle school she hated getting up early, found her classes boring and didn’t really see where it was all going. When she started her freshman year at Arroyo High School in San Lorenzo, California, just south of Oakland, she was a shy student who rarely spoke up in class and had little confidence in herself as a scholar.

Rodriguez is now a senior and her approach to school has changed dramatically over her high school career. She attributes her shift to her freshman science teacher, Jim Clark, who taught the class about growth mindset from the very beginning and backed up the discussion with action.

“He would tell me, ‘You need to push yourself, that’s how you’re going to grow. Be confident. You’re not always going to be successful on your first tries, but you can get there,’ ” Rodriguez said

Carol Dweck"s book Mindset is a great resource for teachers who want to learn more about this topic.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 15, 10:29 PM
"She also tries hard to model a growth mindset to her students by being open about her own struggles as a parent and a teacher. “They’re not used to teachers apologizing,” Rodgers said. “But I tell them I’m going to make mistakes all the time. And I think showing that helps them realize they can actually make mistakes.” When teachers and administrators say they want kids to have a growth mindset, the school environment has to back up that rhetoric. At Arroyo, the emphasis on growth mindset came alongside a shift to standards-based grading. Kids can see that mistakes along the way aren’t negatively affecting them and keep working to master the concepts. “When you believe it; they believe,” Rodgers said. “If I didn’t believe this, they wouldn’t buy what I’m selling.”"

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius | Education | Scoop.it
“ Though more than two years into my school’s implementation of project based learning, yesterday, I found myself excited all over again. I was helping a second grade teacher enhance her landforms PBL by using Padlet as part of the KWL process and suddenly realized that this approach to student-centered learning has truly become a part of who we are as a school. My adventures in combining PBLs and iPads began with a gift of two carts. I had just started taking the PBLU online courses when the head of our independent pre-k through eighth grade school challenged each grade-level team to teach one unit using the PBL approach while finding authentic ways to draw in iPads. As the lower school technology integration person, I immediately went on a quest to find a guinea pig willing to plan and co-teach a PBL unit incorporating iPads. This is the story of that first experience. . .”

"These days, very little comes out of Hollywood without special effects added in post-production. Our favorite superhero movies, science fiction thrillers and fast-paced action movies just wouldn't be the same without them. However, these video effects are no longer the preserve of video professionals. Technology has advanced quickly, and you can now replicate these very same effects to make photos and videos come to life on your iPad. Here's how."

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School - Edudemic | Education | Scoop.it

"Fueled by an incredible demand in the workforce for proficient programmers and the need to teach critical thinking skills, the coding movement in schools has exploded. Furthermore, we all communicate through technology, so we should at least know the basic premise of coding because the gadget sitting in our pocket, or on our desk, should not be a mysterious black box to us or our students. Just like writing, multimedia, art, and music are mediums to show ideas, coding can be another form of expression.``

Virtual Summer Camp - The Next Step in Connected Learning | Education | Scoop.it
“ Fact: Kids love Minecraft. The unique and ridiculously popular game is often compared to digital LEGO’s, and at it’s core, allows players to place and break blocks in a 3D world. With more than 22 million users in 40 countries, the Minecraft craze is only growing and kids can’t seem to get enough. The draw of Minecraft? For kids, it’s a blank slate and gives them the opportunity to let their imagination run wild. For educators, it is a perfect opportunity to fully integrate technology with learning. Minecraft is being recognized as an incredibly powerful, educational tool that acts as a medium for educators and students, alike, allowing them to unleash their creativity and fully integrate technology with learning opportunities. Because the game lives online, the multiplayer format can be utilized to emphasize digital citizenship and collaboration all through integrated project based-learning. Meet Connected Camps, an online summer camp for Minecraft that is breaking the rules in all the right ways. Yes, you read that right, Connected Camps is a virtual summer camp, that connects kids from around the country (and even the world) through a dedicated, monitored and secure Minecraft server.”

Trying Out Gamification In the Classroom? These Tools Are For You | Edudemic | Education | Scoop.it
by Kati Lepi"Getting students actively engaged and learning by leveraging the power of gamification in the classroom is a hot trend these days. The idea of getting students learning, sharing, and laughing by using gamification shows great promise, to be sure.But where should you start in terms of finding the tools that will actually help you out?"PBS Learning Media thought it might be useful to give you a little help in that department. Below are just a select number of useful apps and web tools that they’ve curated and know will help any classroom take a different approach to learning about some basic ideas. For example, Star Swiper is a very fun way to get younger students (pre-k through 2nd grade) clapping in order to get stars to appear. How neat is that?"

Smart Apps For Special Needs: 10 Apps for Teaching Emotions and Calming Skills

Smart Apps For Special Needs: 10 Apps for Teaching Emotions and Calming Skills | Education | Scoop.it

"My husband learned pretty early on in our marriage that telling me to "relax" when I was feeling stressed was not in his best interest. My response is always more favorable when he offers to help or even just listen. This came to mind when I read an article by behavior specialist, Jessica Minahan, on teaching children self-calming skills. As teachers, parents and therapists, we often tell children to relax or calm down, but many children don't know how and behavior can escalate. The article explains three simple steps to help kids learn to self-calm: teach students to identify emotions, teach students self-calming strategies and practice with the student. Be sure to read the full article here for some great suggestions on how to implement these steps. I've also rounded up ten apps that can be used to address these skills"
