Stream a Massive Collection of Indie, Noise  Industrial Mixtapes from the 80s and 90s | New learning | Scoop.it


They’ll never be worth as much as the alleged box of first edition Superman comics left in my father’s room when he shipped out to sea, allegedly given to the dump by his mother, though she forever denied it; but those overstuffed boxes full of cheap mixtapes from the late 80s and 90s in my closet have to be worth something, right?

Connected Lead Learner: Goodbye Hallways and Welcome to Idea Street!

Connected Lead Learner: Goodbye Hallways and Welcome to Idea Street! | New learning | Scoop.it
Welcome To Idea Street! 

Last January, I took a risk and placed a Makerspace in our hallway because our students deserved something better! (http://connectedleadlearner.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-ones-who-see-things-differently.html?m=1). This was a massive success, as it created a movement of makers (students and staff), while improving the climate and culture in the building. 

Take a moment and think about the hallways in your current learning environment. Lockers, open space, bulletin boards, and student work come to mind as it depends on the grade level building that you work in. As you walk down your hallways, does it create a sense of invitation of excitement to students or does it scream traditional, institutional, boring where discipline issues occur? More than likely, it's the later of the two. Yet, I have to ask, "Why do we continue to ignore this"? This ladies and gentlemen is where I draw the line.

Lifelong Learning and the Maker Movement

Lifelong Learning and the Maker Movement | New learning | Scoop.it
Despite the impressive potential of the maker movement and the aspect of fun learning by making, still, there remain some challenges in mainstreaming the maker movement in education. First of all, it should not be misunderstood that learners should be given to build things without proper acquisition of fundamental skills, such as basic literacy and numeracy,
