Ten Makerspace Curriculum Wins from 2014-2015 - The GCAA Makerspace

Ten Makerspace Curriculum Wins from 2014-2015 - The GCAA Makerspace | TGSHS Library ideas and Libguides | Scoop.it
This past year was swamped with curriculum design for four new Makerspace courses. Though there are many aspects in each of the courses that need to be tweaked, some of our projects were immediately and massively successful. For a GCAA Makerspace project to be successful, it should engage students while furthering their understanding of design thinking.

In the spirit of my guiding star for 2015-2016 being #documentation, here are my top ten curricular wins from 2014-2015.

Makerology - Krissy Venosdale @Venspired

Makerology  - Krissy Venosdale @Venspired | TGSHS Library ideas and Libguides | Scoop.it
I’ve always been obsessed with all things creative.  I’ve always assumed I was just a Sharpie collecting, cardboard building, Lego designing girl who never grew up.  What was this relentless urge to create?  It’s really been about being a maker, all along. The Maker Movement is making it’s way into education and these are my favorite resources.  Join the conversation about making on Twitter by adding the hashtag #MakerEd, or the new hashtag just for resources for youngest learners, #Elemaker.  You can also add your name to a growing list of educators looking to collaborate!

WeAreTeachers: Making Matters! How the Maker Movement Is Transforming Education

WeAreTeachers: Making Matters! How the Maker Movement Is Transforming Education | TGSHS Library ideas and Libguides | Scoop.it
The Maker Movement, a technological and creative learning revolution underway around the globe, has exciting and vast implications for the world of education. New tools and technology, such as 3D printing, robotics, microprocessors, wearable computing, e-textiles, “smart” materials, and programming languages are being invented at an unprecedented pace. The Maker Movement creates affordable or even free versions of these inventions, while sharing tools and ideas online to create a vibrant, collaborative community of global problem-solvers.

Stages of Being a Maker Learner - User Generated Education @jackiegerstein

Stages of Being a Maker Learner - User Generated  Education @jackiegerstein | TGSHS Library ideas and Libguides | Scoop.it
So what is making? I’ve proposed that the heart of making is creating new and unique things. I also realize that in order for this type of making to occur, there needs to be some scaffolding so that maker learners can develop a foundation of knowledge and skills. The end result, though should be maker learners creating new things by and for themselves. The ideas in this post have been sparked by the SAMR model. I see a similar pattern or progression with maker education:
