Shannon Mersand: 12 Questions (and Answers) about Makerspaces!

Shannon Mersand: 12 Questions (and Answers) about Makerspaces! | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it
What is needed to start a Makerspace in a classroom or school?

Passion - You need to have passion and a belief in the educational value of maker-style projects.

Space - This can be a whole room or only part of a room.

Supplies - Start small with simple craft materials. Often sending a message out to colleagues and the community asking for donations of materials works well.

Storage - Create a place to store materials when they are not in use and student projects as they are being worked on.

A Model of Good Teaching? | Challenges | Coaching | LEARNing By Doing | LEARNing To Learn | PracTICE | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it
What I believe the kids learn during their MasterChef Junior experiences:

Additional cross-curricular skills including oral communication, following directions;
Working with a team;
Tolerance for frustration;
That their passions and interests are valuable and meaningful.
Many of the kids in interviews following their elimination from the competition state that it was the best experience of their lives.  I have a hunch that many of these kids would say their MasterChef experiences taught them as much or more than all of the school years combined. I’ve written about creating the conditions for the best day ever.  Educators, in this era of learning, should focus on those conditions that create an environment that each and every one of their students love coming to school and love learning.

Los elementos que se proponen en el modelo son de alguna manera conocidos, sin embargo, es justamente la integración de los mismos, lo que se vuelve un reto, A pesar de que el modelo se contextualiza en niños, aplica perfectamente para estudiantes universitarios y adultos.

"With the Internet exploding with information resources and tools for learning, teachers can be facilitators of information with a greater emphasis on explanation and critical thinking as opposed to the dissemination source. Formal learning systems have in some cases been slower to adopt this model, rightfully concerned with accuracy of material and consistency; yet with ever increasing numbers of individuals accessing information in learning environments, the necessity of these formal systems to adopt technological change is very clear."

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a  great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.

 

"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.

 

This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"

 

Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!
