Remake Learning Playbook

Remake Learning Playbook | On education | Scoop.it

"Since 2007, a diverse group of Pittsburgh’s educators, funders, academics, and citizens—known as the Remake Learning Network—has emerged to exchange ideas and implement strategies to enhance the region’s learning ecosystem. These efforts have provided the region’s children and youth with novel, engaging, and relevant learning opportunities that help them thrive in school, college, and the workforce. Indeed, what began with small, informal discussions has blossomed into a full-fledged movement that is yielding notable results and earning national recognition.

 

"In the spirit of open innovation, the Network is building the Remake Learning Playbook, a field guide full of ideas and resources for supporting learning innovation networks. Filled with practical and actionable information to help other communities build on the Pittsburgh model for learning innovation.

 

Current Release

"Release 1 includes several chapters of the Remake Learning Playbook focused on the structure, strategies, and lessons learned by the Remake Learning Network, as well as previews of 10 case studies examining how learning has been remade in schools, museums, libraries, and communities throughout Pittsburgh.

 

"Content from Release 1 is available on Medium to allow for user comments and feedback, with PDF versions available for download."

Description by The Scout Report

 

"The Discovery Channel's Shark Week drew record ratings this year, netting more than 2.5 million viewers. What is it about sharks that so captivates our attention? The Shark Research Institute (SRI) website might provide a few answers to that question. Readers might like to start with SRI Alerts, which links to coverage of all things shark-related from around the web. Next, the About Sharks section features information concerning dozens of shark species listed in alphabetical order, as well as shark videos and a shark photo gallery. Links to the Global Shark Attack File, a site devoted to providing current and hsitorical data on shark/human interactions, can also be found here. The Education section is another great feature of this site, with Games, Handouts for Teachers, a Whale Shark Q&A, and a section on Kids Making a Difference, which profiles a number of children who have made contributions to shark conservation and research."

Starting a School Makerspace from Scratch ^ Edutopia ^ by Colleen Graves | On education | Scoop.it
Step 1: Immerse Yourself in Maker Education
Before you can build your own community of makers, you need to join one! Immerse yourself in makerspaces by joining a summer maker camp like Exploratorium's Tinkering Fundamentals or the virtual Camp Google for cheap and easy STEM ideas, but most importantly: make stuff! Go to the public library or a community makerspace and learn Arduino, coding, etc. Some easy ways into coding are the Hour of Code and Scratch programming. Institute a family maker time at home and make low-tech, STEM-related crafts with little ones, like this balloon-propelled car or this balloon hovercraft.

Copy a Google Form ^ Teacher Tech ^ by Alice Keeler | On education | Scoop.it
If you have created a Google Form it can be tricky to allow others to make a copy of your Google Form. If you have created a Google Form to collect attendance, as a daily warm up or a formative assessment you may want to share what you made with another teacher. Most likely you do not want other teachers data mixed in with your data. You want the teachers to copy your Forms not use your Forms.

Lessons Learned as Project Director for PlayForward: Elm City Stories: Lessons 3-4 ^ Excelsior College ^ by Kimberly Hieftje | On education | Scoop.it
PlayForward: Elm City Stories is an interactive role-playing video game designed to provide at-risk young minority adolescents the opportunity to acquire and practice skills to reduce sexual risk behaviors, with the ultimate goal of preventing HIV. In the game, players create their Aspirational Avatar and “travel” through life, facing challenges and making decisions that bring different risks and benefits. PlayForward is currently being evaluated in a large randomized controlled trial with 333 teens aged 11-14, and we are examining a range of outcomes including knowledge, intentions, self-efficacy and actual behaviors with data being collected at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, 12, and 24 months. In this series, I will talk about the twelve lessons I learned as Project Director during the development of the videogame intervention, PlayForward.

"Google Drawings isn't at the forefront of tools. The limelight is reserved for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. But let's do a reawakening of sorts and click on More to go to the "neglected" siblings. We have seen the usefulness of Google Forms. It's time to appreciate the versatility of Google Drawings.

 

"Google Drawings is the freshest among all Google Drive tools. It is not a full-blownimage editor like MS Paint. But the graphic editor is more powerful for one simple fact – it is a real-time collaborative application."

How a Small Country In Africa Taught Me the Greatest Lesson on Innovation - A.J. Juliani

How a Small Country In Africa Taught Me the Greatest Lesson on Innovation - A.J. Juliani | On education | Scoop.it
The police were on strike, yet we were still walking through the streets of Tembisa. It was the middle of July, but it wasn’t hot. We were in the southern hemisphere after all, and Africa is an enormous continent whose western stereotypes were consistently being shattered during our visit.

This was in 2006, when I took my first trip to the South African township, Tembisa (right outside of Johannesburg). I could list many different reasons of why I went on this trip. I enjoyed traveling. I had been a part of mission work before in Guatemala, Europe, and in the US. My wife (fiance at the time) was going with me as well. So were my brothers and sister.

All of these reasons would make sense of why we went to South Africa in the middle of summer, but they aren’t the real reason. My wife and I went to Tembisa because my Dad was extremely passionate about this cause. We could see how passionate he was in the way he talked about Africa and the people in Tembisa. My dad is a Pastor, and the year prior he had led a small team to Swaziland (a small country landlocked inside of South Africa) and had came back to the US on fire. Our group was headed to South Africa to learn from the people there, help run a huge kids camp, and volunteer at an AIDS clinic and orphanage.

Although we spent a lot of time learning about the culture and people of South Africa, nothing could prepare me for this experience. It changed my life in so many different ways. After a 7 hour flight to Paris, and a 11 hour flight to Johannesburg, our plane touched down and we headed towards an adventure I’d never forget.

  • Integrated health and human services and education institutions that eliminate the barriers to children coming to school and being ready to learn; and
