40 Percent Rise This Year in Global Immigration to Israel, Report Shows | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
A new report shows that Jewish immigration to Israel from around the world rose more than 40 percent in the first three months of 2015, the UK’s Guardian reported on Sunday. A total of 6,499 Jews arrived in Israel between January and March of this year, according to an interim report by the Jewish Agency for Israel. The vast majority of immigrants came from Europe, specifically eastern Europe. 1,971 immigrants came from Ukraine to the Jewish state, the most of any country [...]

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 5, 6:09 AM

Jackie Gerstein has created a new website that explores the Maker Movement. If this is an area that you would like to explore you will find 10 areas that you can explore:

* Paper Circuits

* Squishy Cirtuits

* Bare Conductive Paint

* Sew Electrics

* Operation Game

* Toy Take Apart

* Soldering Projects

* LittleBits

* Makey Makey

* Hummingbird Robotics

Each of these areas leads to a webpage and the ones I checked out included a number of videos to help you understand the topic as well as some documentation and additional resources.

She also includes a brief video that helps you understand what the Maker Movement is (and you hear from learners involved in a number of projects). In addition there is a ThingLink (based on the image above) that provides  links to additional resources.

The Maker Movement provides learners with opportunities to create something that is new to them. It is authentic learning and learners will go through iterations as they work through the process, and potentially experience failure that will help them become successful.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, March 5, 9:21 AM

Librarians - Makerspaces can be a good fit for your library.

James Walker's curator insight, March 6, 9:40 AM

Many school have closed down the shop classes to focus on testing prep. The maker movement is now revitalizing the shop class.

Here is a great tip for adding music to your Google Slides Presentation.

Candi Whitman's curator insight, April 27, 4:41 PM

Music always enhances.   Never put too much information on a slide.  That's what talking is for, and I like to keep them up only 10-15 seconds so you keep people's interest.  

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's curator insight, May 1, 11:34 AM
