How Students Can Use Timeline Infographics in the Classroom

How Students Can Use Timeline Infographics in the Classroom | Go Digital | 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.

Hacking Design Thinking For Education Part 1: What Is Design Thinking?

Hacking Design Thinking For Education Part 1: What Is Design Thinking? | Go Digital | Scoop.it
Inspiration. Ideation. Implementation.

There are many ways of looking at the stages of the design thinking process. Many experts believe there are 5 stages to design thinking. Some cite 4 or 6. Others 7 or more.

And guess what? They are all probably correct!

And guess what else? I bet that all of them use Inspiration, Ideation, and Implementation in some way, shape, or form for they are the bare bones basic spaces all innovations go through.

Today, I give you the first Infographic in the Hacking Design Thinking For Education Series I am creating. This is Part 1: What Is design Thinking?

This incredible robot (called Root) is teaching kids to code - Daily Genius

This incredible robot (called Root) is teaching kids to code - Daily Genius | Go Digital | Scoop.it
Root looks like a smoke detector but is actually a sophisticated robot. A magnetic surface, wheels, and an impressive arsenal of sensors allow it to navigate a classroom white board. But Root isn’t actually programmed to do anything. Its tasks and functionality hinge on a child’s imagination. To operate – Root needs instructions, a line of code.

Zivthan Dubrovsky of Harvard’s Wyss Institute recalls testing out Root with kids for the first time. He asked them this: “Can you make a text based java script line follower? They go ‘no that’s hard, can’t do that’, but we can put level one in front of them and they can do it in minutes.”


Level one introduces kids to principles of programming using an interface of simple instruction and pictures. As they become more adept, they jump to levels 2 and 3, at which point writing computer code becomes second nature, according to Dubrovsky.

Teaching the Design Process in Makerspaces | Renovated Learning @DianaLRendina | Go Digital | Scoop.it
Stewart Middle Magnet is a STEM magnet school, and part of our curriculum comes from Project Lead the Way, including classes in engineering, robotics and aerospace.  The Design Process is an important part of that curriculum.  It also ties in beautifully with what we do in our makerspace.  So it made sense for me to partner up with one of our Project Lead the Way classes to teach our students about the basics of the design process.  While this was a lesson with a specific class, it could easily work with small groups, after-school clubs, or any group that you bring into your makerspace.

Is It Plagiarism or Collaboration? | Go Digital | Scoop.it

Perhaps instead of focusing our concerns on technology as a wonderful aid to plagiarizers, we should focus on its ability to foster creativity and collaboration, and then ask ourselves (we are the clever adults here) how we can incorporate those elements into our formalized assessments.

There is a very thin line between plagiarism and collaboration where group assessments are concerned. I also feel that in this digital age, the type of assessments, activities and questions should be re-defined and reworked. I also try to provide "wrappers" in the class especially on ethics.

Newton’s New Law of Teaching: When Quality Instruction and Technology Intersect

Newton’s New Law of Teaching: When Quality Instruction and Technology Intersect | Go Digital | Scoop.it
Both of these variables—good teachers and good technology—can transform a student’s learning experience. Each of them are also compromised by the absence of the other. The holy grail of instruction, then, seems to reside in the space occupied by teachers who know their content, know their kids, and know how to weave powerful technology into their instruction.

Coding and Bots - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein

Coding and Bots - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein | Go Digital | Scoop.it

"I have been asked to return to teach summer enrichment classes on maker education for elementary-aged learners at a local school during the summer of 2016. One of the new classes I am designing is called Coding and Bots. The description is:

"Learn how to code first by playing games and then by coding some bots including Sphero, OZOBOT, and Dash and Dot. All ages are welcome but the child should have basic symbol recognition/reading skills."

Two things to note about this class are, first, I learned last summer not to underestimate the learning potential of very young kids. These classes are mixed ages ranging from 4 to 10 year old kids. For most of the maker education activities, the very young ones could perform them, sometimes better than the older kids. Second, I am a strong proponent of hands on activities. Although I like the use of iPads and computers, I want elementary aged students to have to directly interact with materials. As such, I am designing Coding and Bots to include using their bodies and manipulating objects. This translates into having all activities include the use of objects and materials excluding and in conjunction with the iPad – not just using the iPad and online apps/tools to learn to code. The activities I plan to do follow:"
