Sketchnoting

Sketchnoting | #MakerEd   ideas, projects & tech news   @HEdWorks | Scoop.it

Sketchnoting, in its purest form, is creating a personal visual story as one is listening to a speaker or reading a text. I also believe the interactive notebook, which includes the process of taking "regular" notes" while listening to a speaker and later creating a sketchnote of the text notes, would also be considered sketchnoting. This page will provide links, ideas, tips,and research evidence dealing with the power of sketchnoting. If you are looking for a book on the topic, the seminal work is this book by Mike Rohde.

BlabDroid: hackable robots

We plan to open source the Bluetooth protocol as much as possible so you can make your own apps or control the robot over Bluetooth. We will be using an open source microcontroller architecture such as Arduino, which will make the robots even more hackable. Our hope is that the community will find more uses for the BlabDroids in fields such as education.

Homemade LEGObot 3D printer does 3D printing on the cheap | GizMag.com

Homemade LEGObot 3D printer does 3D printing on the cheap | GizMag.com | #MakerEd   ideas, projects & tech news   @HEdWorks | Scoop.it

As the 3D printing revolution continues, prices of 3D printers have continued to fall, with devices such as the Buccaneer 3D printer set to sell for under US$400. But even that is still too expensive for many people – students in particular. That's why Matthew Krueger, also known as matstermind at instructables.com, has created a 3D printer for next to nothing from everyone's favorite childhood toy, LEGO.

 

Krueger has had an obsession with 3D printing since he first came upon the original Makerbot Thing-O-Matic, but as a student, he lacked the funds to purchase a 3D printer of his own. Since his education was based in engineering, Krueger started making attempts at creating his own 3D printer with limited funds and what he had on hand. After attempts with an Arduino and parallel port, 3D printing on the cheap seemed like it would remain out of reach, but then Krueger pulled out his LEGOs and started building.

 

What he created is the LEGObot, an NXT-powered 3D printer that is roughly based on the original Makerbot. Instead of plastic, the LEGObot currently prints with hot glue, which although a usable medium, has a rubbery consistency that leads to a lack of practical uses.

For Teenage Brains, the Importance of Continuing to Learn Deeply | #MakerEd   ideas, projects & tech news   @HEdWorks | Scoop.it
It used to be that neuroscientists thought smart people were all alike. But now they think that some very smart people retain the ability to learn rapidly, like a child, well into adolescence. That means they have a longer period of time to learn from their environment — and maybe learn Chinese.

Arduino Robot Tutorial 2: LOGO and remote control your Robot

One of the first examples of coding on the Arduino Robot is called “LOGO” which is very similar to an early educational programming language that controlled a virtual turtle moving across the screen with simple instructions. This time however, instead of having a small virtual turtle running on a screen, we have a robot that can respond to commands demonstrating a basic example of movement.
