Great ideas for library makerspaces!

So many fantastic resources here - fun too!

Blows the mind! An awesome list of resources to transform your learners into inventors. These resouces can be used to teach problem solving skills, ignite children's imagination and facilitate project-based learning. Great resources to engage boys/male learners too.

Good, clear infographic comparing different learning theories alongside connectivism. Interesting to consider, whether you appreciate the theory or not.

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’ | First Year Sequence | Scoop.it
The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.

 

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

 

Read more, a MUST!!!

Howard Gardner asks teachers to Drop the term “styles.” It will confuse others and it won’t help either you or your students.

Of course they aren't. They are the raw material that come together and result in learning styles. I've got to read this :)
Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 6:18 AM
Read it. I've always found Gardner's MI theory interesting - because it's a great equalizer - when I was growing up logical-mathematical intelligence (in Gardner's terminology) was given the highest importance - art, music, sports etc. were considered talents/gifts - and not intelligences. Gardner made them more respectable by calling them intelligences. This is why I too can call myself intelligent today - visually and spatially intelligent. Ahem!

Sherry Markle's insight:

So, what's the verdct? 'It's been 12 years since NCLB rolled out to make our student college-bound. Are we there? Is is helping to standardize our youth as we'd hoped? It would be interesting to see what everyone's thoughts are about changes that have (or have not) made education easier or more standard. I work in a college where most students are adults who are returning later. I'm not seeing a lot of affect of NCLB in action.

Sherry Markle's insight:

I wonder if, in our attempt to improve conditions for women, we've inadvertently forgotten our boys. I wonder, further, why we feel we need to any group above another. Is this really what it comes down to in our pursuit of equality in education?

There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

The Big Six taught me a lot on how we assume kids can skim and scan.  We need to take more time to show them how to search.

johanna krijnsen's curator insight, December 4, 2013 2:07 PM

do your students know how to search, find and curate information?

Cindy Gerken Butler's curator insight, November 11, 2014 2:34 PM

We are a 1:1 school and we have several students who could learn a lot in regards to searching for content on the internet.

Women in science: 'Whoa, what are you doing here?'Ada Lovelace Day

Women in science: 'Whoa, what are you doing here?'Ada Lovelace Day | First Year Sequence | Scoop.it
Laura Bates: Ada Lovelace Day has put the focus on women in science. The Everyday Sexism Project invited scientists and engineers to tweet about their experiences

-

This week saw a day of celebration for Ada Lovelace, a brilliant mathematician who wrote the world's first computer program before computers were even invented. Lovelace grew up in a world of enormous gender inequality, and her first experience of it came moments after birth with her father's reported disappointment that she was not "the glorious boy" he had hoped for. But even now, nearly 200 years later, women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (Stem) are still fighting an uphill battle against professional gender imbalance.

According to e-skills UK, women make up just 17% of the UK IT and telecoms workforce. And the number of women in the most senior research positions in Stem in the UK also stands at the paltry figure of 17%, according to a 2012 European Commission study. Even worse, according to a 2012 Wise campaign report (pdf) only 13% of Stem jobs in the UK are occupied by women.

This artical relates to half the skys because Ada Lovelace's father was dissapointed that she was not a boy and that she overcame inequality. This article is not valid because it has no background about Ada Lovelace and it also has no sources of referance from where they have gotten their information. The content in this article means that there is still a imbalance when it comes to jobs between women and men.

Sherry Markle's insight:

The first year of college is the least intense because we're acclimating students to new expectations and formats, we're showing them what we expect of their writing and teaming, and we're trying to get all students to a reasonably similar place in their learning.
