Nicole Reid's curator insight, July 16, 7:45 PM

This article shows how technology is improving education! I personally have e-textbooks for my Master's program and the nice thing I enjoy about e-textbooks is that I can search and find what I am looking for without having to try to look through a 200 page book and find where I highlighted about a topic. I can highlight and write notes in adobe digital education which is what I use to read my e-textbook. You can also highlight and stick notes PDF files via the toolbar task Diigo. No longer do I have to carry around a 20lb textbook. Now I can access my notes and readings from almost anywhere. 

Ben Bempong's curator insight, July 20, 6:55 PM

I hope that this will show to schools and parents that with being in the future times, everything is switching the electronic and computer base usage.  E textbooks are much convenient for students to use, and are much more manageable to keep ahold to than physical textbooks.  The only issue is getting to the place where all our students own a computer, laptop, ipad, etc (When talking k-12 students)..  Students in low income areas (K-12 students) still struggle with getting their students electronic sources to use, but E-Textbooks are the now and the future.

5 steps for creating a custom makerspace | eSchool News | eSchool News

5 steps for creating a custom makerspace | eSchool News | eSchool News | eLearning, Blended Learning and Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

I believe that every child has the right to invent, tinker, create, innovate, make, and do. The maker movement has created opportunities for all educators to give students authentic learning opportunities that go beyond the typical classroom experiences and to rethink traditional learning environments to include those that nurture the kinds of creativity and innovation that will benefit our students both in school and beyond. We know children learn by exploring and playing and doing and making and that these kinds of things lead to deeper engagement. The maker movement embodies opportunities for experimentation and innovation to occur across all grade levels and all content areas.

Physical makerspaces have allowed us the opportunity to pull some of this excitement of the maker movement into our schools. Makerspaces can help set the stage for meaningful student learning, as well as help cultivate a culture of innovation within a school. My makerspace inspires innovation, passion, and personal motivation and interests, and has encouraged students to pursue STEM subjects and careers.

Why not let students choose what works best for them – student voice. To me,  letting students choose what tools they use and how they organize shows a strength based approach to student learning. What benefit is there in forcing students to function in a way that may not be self directed and self optimized?
