Free Technology for Teachers: The Science of Snow

Free Technology for Teachers: The Science of Snow | eScience | Scoop.it

"Good morning from Woodstock, Maine where we have roughly ten inches of new snow on the ground. The fresh snow combined with the approaching full moon reminded me of a couple of neat videos about snow and the moon.

The episode of Bytesize Science embedded below explains how snowflakes are created."

How Students Can Use Timeline Infographics in the Classroom

How Students Can Use Timeline Infographics in the Classroom | eScience | Scoop.it

As a foreign language teacher, I am always looking for innovative ways to allow my students to demonstrate what they have learned.

I want students to be able to choose a tool that brings out their creative side and, as a result, leads to a more authentic and meaningful learning experience.

Because learning a language can be difficult, I try to design a variety of activities and projects that will provide students with practice and unique opportunities to develop their language skills through the creation of their projects.

The Imperative of Experiential and Hands-On Learning

The Imperative of Experiential and Hands-On Learning | eScience | Scoop.it
Hands-on and experiential learning is used in some elementary schools but this diminishes as students get older. In too many high schools and colleges, instruction seems to occur through engaging the ears and sometimes the eyes (through visuals such as with slide presentations). Interestingly, though, a Study Finds 52% of U.S. Adults Say No. 1 Way to Learn is Through Active Participation, Followed by Visual Demonstration.

Google: Girls Can Do Great Things With Code

Google: Girls Can Do Great Things With Code | eScience | Scoop.it

"Rose Broome, founder and chief executive officer of HandUp, grew up in California's Silicon Valley, playing in computer server rooms and making backup tapes. As an undergraduate at Santa Clara University, she studied computer science and business computing as an information systems student, but then switched disciplines. Graduating with a degree in campaign management, Broome thought that it would enable her to do more community-focused work, such as public health messaging.

"I wish I had known at that time that you could make a big difference with computer science, and I'm excited to share that message with other girls," Broome says.

Featured on Google's Made with Code website is a video highlighting Broome and other women who use code to make a difference. Broome's HandUp is an online fundraising platform through which people can donate to individuals in need or to nonprofit organizations working with homeless populations.

While earning a master's in psychological research from San Francisco State University, Broome gravitated toward the statistics and data analysis part of her research, and from there made her way back to technology. "This is how I can make a big impact in the world and use the skills that I have and really love," she realized.

In June 2014, Google launched Made with Code, which aims to inspire girls to learn how to code and to expose them to the idea that coding is a means for achieving their professional aspirations."

Sarah's curator insight, June 4, 8:20 PM
This is a bit of inception with an article on the benefits of curation, curated into a collection on Scoop It. This article discusses the way that curation can enhance higher order thinking by allowing students understand, analyze and evaluate content matter as they curate it. It gives examples of tasks as well as way to present the information. It is a great resource for planning activities to cultivate higher order thinking.

Teacher's Guide to 3D Printing Education | All3DP

Teacher's Guide to 3D Printing Education | All3DP | eScience | Scoop.it

"Across the Western hemisphere, it is not hard to find 3D printer manufacturers or distributors specializing in education products and services supplying 3D printers and ancillary products. Neither is it difficult to find inspiring student stories within this geographical region of how 3D printing has transformed their learning experience and inspired them to create original and well-thought through applications of the technology. This is all very positive momentum… but there’s something really important missing.

One vital group within the education equation gets frequently overlooked — the teachers. The people that are directly tasked with preparing students — our children — for the modern workplace. There are fantastic teaching pioneers out on the frontline, excited by 3D printing themselves, and transmitting this passion into their classrooms. Moreover, increasing numbers of schools are buying into 3D technology for the classroom and the potential for facilitating learning activities across the curriculum.

But for teachers, there has to be a purpose behind the potential. Where do they go to find that purpose, particularly if they are not familiar with the 3D printing ecosystem themselves; which, let’s face it, many of them will not be?"
