7 Questions I Ask About a Makerspace Tool Before I Embrace It | krissy venosdale | Just Down the Hall | Scoop.it
“ With the advertisement of maker-this and maker-that, there are a flood of products claiming to be the “next big thing” you need in your makerspace. I’ve tried some things I love, somethings I thought fell short, and I’m constantly on the lookout for new ideas, new gadgets, and new ways to use old things.”

“ When I was at Picademy in February, I learned about an awesome company that uses Raspberry Pi as the brain of their project. Piper is an amazing start-up that has children build their computer and use Minecraft to learn how to use the different aspects of the Raspberry Pi and all of the buttons assembled. Here is a quick video that explains what Piper is and how it works.”

Libraries, Makerspaces, and STEAM Labs: What’s the Difference?

Libraries, Makerspaces, and STEAM Labs: What’s the Difference? | Just Down the Hall | Scoop.it
“Recently, my school district formed a committee to explore the idea of making our libraries relevant again. With drastic budget cuts a few years ago, our elementary had more or less been reduced to book circulation with a part-time librarian that shares three elementary schools. Relevancy is not a word that I would use to”

How to Turn Your School Into a Maker Haven

How to Turn Your School Into a Maker Haven | Just Down the Hall | Scoop.it
“ One of the best ways for frustrated parents, students and teachers to convince school leaders that it’s time for a reboot is with amazing student work. An unconventional learning community of “makers” — people who like to figure out and fix problems with their hands — stands ready to demonstrate a hands-on learning style in which students engage problems that matter to them, taking agency and displaying creativity along the way. The Maker Movement is slowly infiltrating schools across the country with the help of dedicated educators and inspirational students proving with their creations that they can do incredible things when given a chance.”

Discover awesome, inspiring ways to use Minecraft in your classroom. | Just Down the Hall | Scoop.it
“ One of the reasons Minecraft has been so popular in classrooms -- beyond students just flat-out loving it -- is its versatility. Minecraft has the utility and flexibility of a learning management system, without all the boring bits. It presents teachers and students alike with a sandbox of possibility for interest-driven, student-centered, project-based, and personalized learning experiences. Maybe the best thing of all, though, is that just about any classroom or lesson, no matter the subject, content, or objective, can make use of it. So whether you're already using Minecraft in your classroom or thinking about taking the plunge, check out the great ideas below for how to use Minecraft. There's sure to be something that'll inspire you.”
