Since my 7 year old is very convinced that she will become an engineer, specifically, a mechanical engineer, I want to share 12 amazing engineering projects for kids from the blogosphere including, of course, ideas from this blog.

The Periodic Table of STEAM iPad Apps - @EdTech4Teachers

The Periodic Table of STEAM iPad Apps - @EdTech4Teachers | For Whom the Bell Tolls | Scoop.it
I recently published a post showcasing a collection of some pretty amazing apps for enhancing teaching and learning displayed in a periodic table-style infographic. Check it out here.

Due to its popularity, I’m revisiting this topic, except the focus has shifted this time around to apps that address STEAM—the addition of art/design into the interdisciplinary approach of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These resources are categorized in areas such as computing, making, photography, virtual reality, augmented reality and more!

Tips For Acquiring Inexpensive STEAM Materials - Wee Warhols

Tips For Acquiring Inexpensive STEAM Materials - Wee Warhols | For Whom the Bell Tolls | Scoop.it
I am a bit of a collector — some may say hoarder — of craft supplies or anything that I think my kids, myself, or my students can create or build with.  I love to hunt for cool items and I LOVE to get a good deal.  Before recycling or throwing anything away, I think, “What could we make with that?”  I realize that not everyone is like this and some people don’t want to sort through trash to find that cool treasure.  If you think that STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education is costly, I’m here to let you know it doesn’t have to be. Please let me share some money-saving resources with you to help make incorporating STEAM into your home or classroom easy and affordable.

This e-booklet contains a collection of ten lesson plans to help you develop students' digital literacies and critical thinking skills. Based around authentic infographics the lessons start by using discussion to help students access what they already know about the topics and then move on to comprehension and a range of tasks that help students to explore the validity and authenticity of the information they find. They finish with structured research and presentation tasks that encourage students to work collaboratively and share what they have learned.

MUST KNOW Camera Features for iPad & iPhone Photography | iPad Art Room

MUST KNOW Camera Features for iPad & iPhone Photography | iPad Art Room | For Whom the Bell Tolls | Scoop.it
“The best camera, is the one you have with you.” Chase Jarvis It’s a classic photographic mantra, a call to action for image-makers everywhere. And these days, the camera you are most likely to have with you is the one embedded in your smart phone.

But do you know how to use it? What about your students?

There are many great features built into our mobile devices for photography, and a myriad of apps to produce exciting visual imagery. While some teachers and students are experienced users creating highly original work using complex workflows and inventive techniques, in my workshops I am constantly amazed that it’s some of the most basic tips and tricks that get the most cheers, the practical solutions that are big wins for our classroom context.

So, here are six foundational tools built into the iPhone and iPad camera that all teachers and students should know.

Choosing the Right Products for Your Makerspace - Worlds of Learning

Choosing the Right Products for Your Makerspace - Worlds of Learning | For Whom the Bell Tolls | Scoop.it
Many people associate the Maker Movement with the ‘stuff’ things like 3D printers, but in my opinion, this isn’t what pushes children outside of their comfort zone, it is that opportunity for open-ended exploration that is key.  When creating a makerspace, many school districts just go out and buy things that other districts buy, really in essence, just replicating another school districts makerspace.  In my opinion though, no two school makerspaces should be exactly alike because no two school communities are exactly alike.  

In my opinion, every makerspace needs to have their own unique vision and that vision should be written down the form of a mission statement.  That statement will help you convey to others what your makerspace is trying to achieve and to help people better understand your space, but it will also help you be able to better select products that are appropriate and meaningful to your particular makerspace.

In addition to a mission statement, I cannot stress enough the importance of properly planning your makerspace.

STEAM is not a class, a thing, or a trend…. it’s THE WORLD. @KrissyVenosdale | For Whom the Bell Tolls | Scoop.it
STEAM is the world.   It’s not a class, a club, or an event.  It’s the connection of learning with the world.   We debate the letters and what they mean, we reduce STEAM to a time in school, and we even argue it’s relevance.

All the while, STEAM is the world.  Good design?  It uses every aspect of STEAM, without formality and without even thinking about it.
