Crafting Professional Development for Maker Educators @GravesColleen @Edutopia

Crafting Professional Development for Maker Educators @GravesColleen @Edutopia | Designing for learning | Scoop.it
Future-ready librarians are transforming traditional school libraries into bustling makerspaces where creativity and learning go hand in hand. The maker environment has the potential to teach our students to work collaboratively in ways that our curriculum often does not. Many of our students leave school lacking the abilities to solve problems, work in groups, act as leaders, and deal with failure because these skills aren’t covered in the curriculum. The good news is that these are all skills that can be gained through collaborative making and participatory learning in a makerspace. I find that combining making and research is beneficial to students because making is inquiry driven.

When you start out embedding making in the curriculum, it is essential to share with teachers the relevance of making as problem solving and the importance of process so that they don’t end up with glitter catapult assignments or extra crafty English language arts assignments that turn out more like craft experiments than true project-based learning. Sit down with teachers and look through the curriculum for places where a hands-on project could create learning across disciplines.

Whether you are teaching librarians or teachers, your professional development needs to get all educators to understand that the process and meaning a student gets from making are the most important aspects to making and education. The final product may be faulty, and that’s okay. At my campus, I work on explaining to all of our students that persevering after failure is what leads to innovation. Making stuff is cool, but the real learning happens from the meaning you get from making.

Why Steve Jobs Couldn't Find a Job Today

Why Steve Jobs Couldn't Find a Job Today | Designing for learning | Scoop.it
There's lots of talk about innovation, but little innovation. Unfortunately we keep hiring the wrong kinds of leaders to implement innovation, or create growth.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 26, 2013 7:36 AM

Unfortunately, however, we keep hiring for the last economy.  While we “get” the need for innovation, we don’t seem to understand much about how to “do it.” The problem starts with how Boards of Directors (and management teams) select – incorrectly, it appears – our business leaders.  Still thinking like out-of-date industrialists, Scientific American offers us a podcast on how “Creativity Can Lesson a Leader’s Image.”  Citing the same study, Knowledge @ Wharton offers us “A Bias Against ‘Quirky’ Why Creative People Can Lose Out on Leadership Positions.” While 1,500 CEOs say that creativity is the single most important quality for success today – and studies bear out the greater success of creative, innovative leaders – the study found that when it came to hiring and promoting practices businesses consistently marked down the creative managers and bypassed them, selecting less creative types!

That's Great!: Models of Sustainability for OER | Designing for learning | Scoop.it

All OER have a life cycle: creation, publishing, repeated revision and reuse, senescence, death. Much effort and many resources have been expended on the creation and publishing of OER. The actual value of such resources, however, depends largely on the extent to which repeated revision and reuse can be sustained before the inevitable onset of senescence and death. The issue of sustainability is largely one of resources, and is a topic of considerable interest in the field of open education.

You will find below tips and explanations of some of the most popular lexicons used in Twitter. I am pretty sure most of you are already familiar with Twitter jargon but this could help you teach them to your students particulalry that Twitter is being widely embraced as an educational social networking tool of choice for many students and teachers. For more resources on how to use Twitter for educational purposes together with lists of web tools to use with Twitter, I recommend this section dubbed Twitter for Teachers. Enjoy!"
