7 Shocking Google Earth GIFs of Human Impact on Earth | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

There’s no doubt about it, humans have reshaped the earth more in the last two hundred years than at any other time in our history… and the last 25 years are no different. 

 

Google has released a new “interactive map experience” allowing users to view archived satellite data over the last quarter century, giving us perhaps the most clear and valuable view of our recent impact on earth.

(Lesson 1) Build Your Own Lightsaber (BYOL) Lab, Introduction: Introduction

"Learn to build your own Lightsaber just like young Jedi do! Along the way, learn about electronics, basic machining, assembly, and the ways of the Jedi. By the end of the lab, you will have built a functioning, battle-ready Lightsaber that you can wield like a master Jedi. This class is highly engaging and will have you anxious to build! This course also makes for a great parent-child project to do over the weekend or as an enrichment activity for your son/daughter. The online delivery of the course makes it a perfect option for home schooled children as well. 
What will I learn?"

You can also choose whether you want your students to work on individual copies of the assignment or work on the same copy.

Improving Schools Through Design Thinking - Edutopia

Improving Schools Through Design Thinking - Edutopia | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Design thinking is a human-centered approach to problem solving that begins with developing empathy for those facing a particular challenge. It serves as a framework that helps to define problems, empathize with others, develop prototypes of possible solutions, and hone those prototypes through multiple iterations until they have generated a viable solution to the challenge at hand. Design thinking encourages a bias toward action and, because of its reliance on rapid prototyping, frees practitioners to embrace the notion of failing forward because it's OK to make mistakes -- that's where breakthrough ideas are born.

While a growing number of schools around the world are using design thinking in classrooms and empowering students to solve authentic challenges as part of an inquiry-based curriculum, this powerful process can also be used to improve the overall school experience. Many successful businesses embrace design thinking to improve their products and enhance their customers' experiences to great effect. Why, then, would we not do the same with our schools? As a school administrator, I've seen design thinking effectively used to improve daily operations as well as enhance both the in-class and out-of-class experiences for teachers, students, and parents.

En pleno Siglo XXI las competencias digitales se han convertido en un requisito indispensable para la sociedad, tanto en el trabajo como en el día a día de las personas. Por ello se pide el reconocimiento de las competencias digitales como habilidades básicas esenciales.

Los maestros deben fomentar las competencias digitales en sus alumnos con el fin de formar ciudadanos capaces de resolver toda clase de problemas con eficacia y creatividad.

Design Challenge with littleBits in the Library Makerspace @GravesColleen

Design Challenge with littleBits in the Library Makerspace @GravesColleen | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
This week I had the pleasure of presenting a sneak peek of my Librarian’s Guide to littleBits through a webinar with School Library Journal. (You should be able to access the archived webinar soon!)  The guide itself will be published on SLJ and the littleBits website for you at no cost and should be up in about two weeks. You can be sure I’ll let you know as soon as it is live!

The webinar coincided with the end of a design challenge I’d held in my library makerspace for the last couple of weeks. One of the things I’d mentioned during the webinar is that free tinkering time is awesome and necessary. However, you eventually have to guide students with a Design Challenge to introduce the concept of long term projects. To quote myself from the Librarian’s Guide to littleBits, “A design challenge will give your makers a time limit, test their abilities, and most importantly give them a chance to show off their work.”

Why 3D Printing Needs to Take Off in Schools Around the World - 3DPrint.com

Why 3D Printing Needs to Take Off in Schools Around the World - 3DPrint.com | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

."Where 3D printing has yet to really make a huge impact, but provides an ample amount of opportunity, is within educational institutions. These range from elementary schools to high schools, universities, and maker spaces around the globe. One reason that 3D printing has been quite slow in making its impact in these institutions is simply because of the lack of knowledge of the technology by the decision makers in charge.

Because the technology is so relatively new, the greatest impact may come via the introduction of 3D printing into public and private grade schools. The younger a person is, the easier it usually is to introduce new ideas and methodologies. This is why young children are so quick to learn new languages, when compared to their older adult counterparts. This is what makes elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools the perfect place to begin really introducing a curriculum based around 3D printing.

Just about every subject within a school curriculum could benefit from 3D printing technology. We will outline a few of these below:"
