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.

What’s Happening In The Brain When Your Imagination Is Active?

What’s Happening In The Brain When Your Imagination Is Active? | For Whom the Bell Tolls | Scoop.it
Imagination is often associated with childhood, but that doesn’t mean the process is simple. Conjuring images that one has never seen before is more complex than it seems, requiring the brain to reconfigure images it can readily identify in new ways.

In one hypothesis of the imagination network, the prefrontal cortex plays a crucial function as coordinator, signaling different networks of neurons representing images that wouldn’t normally be associated together, to fire at the same time. Called “mental synthesis,” some researchers now believe the infrastructure for life-long imaginative pursuits may be laid during childhood.

This TED-Ed video explains in more detail what scientists think is going on in the brain when our imaginations are at work.

Coding for Kids: The Ultimate Guide for Parents

Coding for Kids: The Ultimate Guide for Parents | For Whom the Bell Tolls | Scoop.it
Coding for kids (otherwise known as computer programming) is growing rapidly in popularity. While programming is offered in a small number of traditional schools in the US, a Gallup poll indicates that 90% of parents would like computer programming to be taught during the school day. Even in the schools that offer computer science in the classroom, the level of rigor has been traditionally low, and many parents have chosen to look for outside resources to provide coding instruction. In this guide, we provide parents with the answers to some of the most common questions that we encounter operating a successful kids coding academy, and we attempt to provide advice on academic approach, curriculum selection, and other resources.

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 | 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.
