Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | Omnipresent Learning | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."

This is so cool looking and perfect for Middle School Students.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 4, 2015 10:06 PM

This is an interesting look at PBL. I certainly agree with the idea of a 'Maker' being the learner in the classroom.

Love the visual representation of the shifts.  They are, themselves, indicative of a shift.  Wonder if there is a poster or .pdf of this.  would be great to have as a reminder right next to my desk.  5 and 6, in particular, speak to Discovery Education's mission with STEM.

Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Getting into the right mindset for better learning | Omnipresent Learning | Scoop.it

Mark Gleeson once again provides insight into an infographic. This one on fixed vs growth mindset. In this post he states "Originating from Stanford University psychologist/researcher Carol Dweck, its premise (from my initial reflection) is that as learners, we can either improve our intelligence through hard work or that we are born with a skill set and intelligence level that we are stuck with."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 2013 8:58 AM

What do you think? Do your students come to you with a fixed mindset? Is there future pre-determined by birth? Is intelligence static? Or do you students come in with a growth mindset, with the knowledge that learning takes effort and time, the ability to try and fail, and try again (and again...)? Can intelligence be developed?

Gleeson provides an overview of the two mindsets and explores the infographic and the five categories within in it by asking each as a question. Below is one example...but you will find questins for each category in the post (challenges, obstacles, effort, criticism, success of others).

Quoting from the post:

OBSTACLES: Do we allow our children/ourselves to give up when learning becomes too difficult and stay in a growth- limiting ‘comfort zone’? OR Do we expect our childen/ourselves to persist until we overcome those obstacles and celebrate the achievement of success against all odds?And if you would like to watch a short video that discusses fixed mindset check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhLJPhxuvGM.

This fits really well with the SIM work that has been happening!  It is a nice visual representation of the Dwek work.

 

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:06 AM

People/Students do not go for the challenges because they are scared of failure. With failure come consequences fro example low grades. Anyone can say the grade doesn't matter  it is what you learned, however without the grade you can lose out on getting accepted into colleges or fail a class. 

 

This article is about  about how one can reach success by having a growth mindset.  By gaining and having the drive to gain more knowledge.

The problem is curriculum review is done in a bubble with a select few. If all departments came together in the gym with their must haves for the semester we could find a way to get everyone included and linked.

What is Education 3.0

What is Education 3.0 | Omnipresent Learning | Scoop.it

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.

 

Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.

 

Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]
