3D Printable STEM Projects For Makerspaces | Makerspaces.com

3D Printable STEM Projects For Makerspaces | Makerspaces.com | EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
At the beginning of March, we will be launching a new site called 3DPrintables.com which will feature 3D printable STEM projects for makerspaces.  These projects will be collected from some of the most innovative makers from around the world.  This website will integrate with Makerspaces.com and will focus on STEM projects that help students understand the principals of 3d printing, robotics, engineering, science and more.  There are plenty of great sites out there for maker projects such as Instructables.com and there are plenty of great sites for 3D printable models like Thingiverse.com.  We designed 3DPrintables.com to be a combination of the two sites in order to bring 3D printable projects to maker spaces.

'Connectivism' and Connective Knowledge | Huffington Post

'Connectivism' and Connective Knowledge | Huffington Post | EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

by Stephen Downes

 

"Let me explain why we take this approach and what connectivism is. At its heart, connectivism is the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to construct and traverse those networks. Knowledge, therefore, is not acquired, as though it were a thing. It is not transmitted, as though it were some type of communication.

 

"What we learn, what we know -- these are literally the connections we form between neurons as a result of experience. The brain is composed of 100 billion neurons, and these form some 100 trillion connections and it is these connections that constitute everything we know, everything we believe, everything we imagine. And while it is convenient to talk as though knowledge and beliefs are composed of sentences and concepts that we somehow acquire and store, it is more accurate -- and pedagogically more useful -- to treat learning as the formation of connections."

Storynory - Free Audio Stories for Kids

Storynory - Free Audio Stories for Kids | EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

Audio books have become increasingly popular in recent years (see Google Tends), but some people believe that listening to a good book is not as legitimate as reading one. In fact many authors, such as Dickens, wrote their books to be read out aloud. You can make the case that listening to Dickens’ books is more authentic than reading them.
