Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift | Educational Technology as I See It | Scoop.it
At the White House Maker Faire recently, where President Obama invited “makers” of all ages to display their creations, the  President investigated a robotic giraffe, a red weather balloon and shot a marshmallow cannon made by a student. With so much fanfare and media attention on the event, some educators are hopeful that the idea of tinkering as a way of learning might finally have made it back to the mainstream. But will the same philosophy of discovery and hands-on learning make it into classrooms?

“Most of the people that I know who got into science and technology benefited from a set of informal experiences before they had much formal training,” said Dale Dougherty, editor of Make Magazine and founder of Maker Faire on KQED’s Forum program. “And I mean, like building rockets in the backyard, tinkering, playing with things. And that created the interest and motivation to pursue science.”

That spirit of play and discovery of knowledge is missing from much of formal education, Dougherty said. Students not only have no experience with making or the tools needed to build things, they’re often at a tactile deficit. “Schools haven’t changed, but the students have,” Dougherty said. “They don’t come with these experiences.”

El "Maker Movement" debe ser un elemento clave en el desarrollo de proyectos multidisciplinares en las universidades. No es posible concebir soluciones innovadoras desde la perspectiva de una sola disciplina. Aún cuando hay avances importantes en algunas universidades, "una gaviota no hace verano".

David Baker's curator insight, March 21, 12:46 PM
This supports the movement I am seeing in our schools as they strive to promote rich learning, STEM, Design Thinking, and innovation. I see this thread from preschool through high school.

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | Educational Technology as I See It | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

I appreciate @John Evans for sharing this on his Scoop.it page "iPad in Education".  As I work with preservice students, those in certain fields claim technology is not an option as they don't understand integration.  With this article, I can provide my students another first hand example of how PE and technology blend.

I like the idea of students being able to create video as part of an assessment portfolio in HPE - innovative way of demonstrating competence in performing skills and could be useful in documenting improvement in skill performance

Research, search, and inquiry are different processes. They are each important and overlap, but are still distinct. Research moves knowledge along. Searching is looking for information. Inquiry is posing questions.

How a Teen Knew She was Ready to Teach Computer Coding Skills - Mind/Shift

How a Teen Knew She was Ready to Teach Computer Coding Skills - Mind/Shift | Educational Technology as I See It | Scoop.it

"Diplomas, certificates and accreditation are just some of the indicators that let aspiring educators know they’re ready to teach. But what happens when your passion gets ahead of your level of experience? Ming Horn was debating her sense of readiness earlier this year when she set out on an ambitious plan to teach code to teens at the Future Light Orphanage in Cambodia. Horn, then a junior at Berkeley High School in California, had never taught a classroom of students, nor did she have any fluency in Khmer. What she did have, however, was her experience as a learner."

Interesting Visual Featuring 6 Instructional Strategies That Sticks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology as I See It | Scoop.it
I love these witty quips that ASCD intermittently share with the education community in the form of visually appealing infographics. The recent visual they shared in this regard relates to the topic of issue number two of Education Leadership magazine. Instruction That Sticks is a beautiful visual that features 6 quotations from leading thinkers and educationists. The quotes , different as they are in their scope, each speak to one of the essential areas in teaching methodology. Think of them as tips to help you better conceptualize your teaching strategy to meet the learning needs of your students.

There's no app for good teaching - IDEA.TED.COM | Educational Technology as I See It | Scoop.it
Bringing technology into the classroom often winds up an awkward mash-up between the laws of Murphy and Moore: What can go wrong, will — only faster.

It’s a multi-headed challenge: Teachers need to connect with classrooms filled with distinct individuals. We all want learning to be intrinsically motivated and mindful, yet we want kids to test well and respond to bribes (er, extrinsic rewards). Meanwhile, there’s a multi-billion-dollar industry, in the US alone, hoping to sell apps and tech tools to school boards.

There’s no app for that.

"A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:


raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems."

While lectures and lessons can be informative and even “edutaining” when delivered with passion and good materials by knowledgeable experts, sadly many traditional lectures and lessons are boring, and even worse often ineffective. The good news is that the Web is loaded with great free tools that can enable teachers to bring a sense of fun and engagement to their lessons

 - OSXDailyThe QuickType bar added to the virtual keyboard in iOS 8 seems to either be loved or hated, and while it can be quite good at predicting what words to type next, it can also be a nuisance as it takes up valuable screen real estate on the iPhone and iPod touch. Fortunately, like so many other things in iOS, you can quickly choose to disable or hide the QuickType bar from the keyboard completely, so if you either don’t like it or just don’t want to see it temporarily, you can use a speedy trick to quickly dismiss the suggested word bar.
