Coggles in Google Drive

Coggles in Google Drive | eScience | Scoop.it

We love Google docs. In fact, the seamless collaboration in text documents and spreadsheets is one of the things that inspired us to build the same sort of collaboration into Coggle, right from the start, and the frustration of working collaboratively on text documents is partly why Coggles have the branching structure they do – which makes it much simpler to collaborate.

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?"

Maker Rubric PDF | BLUEPRINT | eScience | Scoop.it
The Maker Rubric is a simple way to assess the progress and growth of a student maker. This rubric was specifically developed to measure any maker project they complete, whether its 3D printing, claymation, soldering, sewing, puppetry… whatever. It is also a way to, if necessary (dependent on how your school system values grades) assign a numerical percentage to a maker project.

For years, LEGO has been at the forefront of innovative building kits for young makers and creators. Always looking for new ways to keep kids building and experimenting, LEGO has gone far beyond the static blocks we are all familiar with.

From LEGO City kits to LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Technic, and even LEGO Minecraft kits, there really is something LEGO for every age, skill level, and interest. But the jewel in the ever-growing crown of the LEGO universe just may be the addition of LEGO robotics, and the maker sensation that is the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 building kit and programming platform.

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."

Five Ways to Ensure #Real #Learning Happens in #Maker #Enhanced #Projects

Five Ways to Ensure #Real #Learning Happens in #Maker #Enhanced #Projects | eScience | Scoop.it
While not new, project-based learning has become a popular method to try and move beyond surface-level learning. Many teachers are trying to figure out the right ingredients for strong projects that interest and engage students, while helping them meet required learning targets. But implementing project-based learning well isn’t easy, especially when many teachers are more accustomed to direct instruction, when they can be sure they’ve at least touched on all the topics in the curriculum. On top of the push toward  projects, some educators are also embracing maker-education, a distinct but often overlapping idea.

“There’s a lot of research out there about integrating making into project-based learning to ramp up what students are learning in the core content areas that they’re going to be tested in,” said Michael Stone, an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow, who taught high school in Tennessee.
