EdTech App Spotlight - PingPong ^ by Boone Kincaid *Free 'clicker' app for iOS & Android* | On education | Scoop.it
Ping Pong– a smart communication tool that increases interaction between teachers and students in the classroom. The platform turns any mobile device into a next-generation “clicker,” or classroom response system, which enables teachers to ask students questions about the lesson and immediately collect their responses. Ping Pong translates the responses into visual graph form, so students can grade themselves and teachers can instantly monitor their comprehension. Ping Pong is free, works on existing iOS and Android devices, and requires no extra installation.

German teenagers create eye-movement controlled wheelchair with help of 3D printing ^ www.3ders.org | On education | Scoop.it
While we’ve seen how much of an impact 3D printing has had in the medical industry for its ability to create prosthetic devices or even surgical parts, it appears as though we are already moving into a phase where creating 3D printed bionic prosthetics and other medical assistance aids might become the new normal - thanks to a handful of inspired makers who have been deciphering how to include low-cost tech into the already low-cost 3D printed devices.  

Among others, fourteen-year-old Myrijam Stoetzer and fifteen-year-old Paul Foltin have been actively developing a solution for helping those bound to wheelchairs with limited mobility be able to control their wheelchair through the use of eye movement alone - similar to a costly device that physicist Stephen Hawking uses.   

To create the prototype for the device, the team started by soldering a webcam and SMD-LEDs onto a pair of safety glasses.  A filter inside of the webcam was modified to only bypass IR light to make it independent from other light sources within the environment - which would allow for the light to be lit by the attached SMD-LEDs only

Free Technology for Teachers: Using Google Apps in a Math Classroom ^ by Bethany Mager | On education | Scoop.it

"The best part of using Google in the classroom is having students collaborate with each other on a document. I often start a lesson with a challenge problem (that two students sitting together work on) a shared google doc. Doctopus is the best way to easily share Docs with student groups or pairs. I set up a roster at the beginning of the year and put students in a group according to their table number so that they may work together to solve the problem."

The above is one of several very useful, practical, and well described ideas.

Your Students can be “Makers”: 16 Projects Invented by Teachers ^ Getting Smart ^ by Lindsey Own | On education | Scoop.it

"In June 2014, I attended the second Design Do Discover conference at Castilleja School in Palo Alto, CA. This June, the third DDD was held at Marymount School in New York City. Both times, the amazing Angi Chau from Castilleja andJaymes Dec from Marymount were the fantastic organizers, and both times I was honored to have been asked to participate as a coach to support teams of participant teachers.

 

"The first year was a wonderful learning experience for everyone – coaches and participants alike. But this year blew it out of the water. Hit it out of the park. Nailed it on the head.

 

"The premise is simple: start with a quick tour of the facility and very brief show-and-tell of the tools (less than 30 minutes!), follow with a group brainstorming session around project ideas (less than 30 minutes!), then form groups to jump into projects. Even before lunch on the first day, groups were already sketching and tinkering with Hummingbird Robotics kits, MaKeyMaKeys, cardboard and MakeDo’s, and more. For two days, I jumped in to help groups, learned new tools myself (LittleBits!), fetched tools and supplies as needed (copper tape! wire strippers!), recommended resources and suppliers (Sparkfun! DigiKey!), and acted as cheerleader for teachers pushing themselves to learn incredible new skills and create amazing artifacts of their learning.

 

"The final projects blew ALL of us coaches away! The absolute best part, from my perspective, is that every single project was immediately applicable back in the participant’s classroom. Most of them are generally applicable in any learning environment! Serious high school science content, literature and history, elementary grades, even social/emotional learning… This was absolutely the most excellent collection of practical and academically-oriented maker projects I’ve seen!"

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, June 22, 2:55 PM
In a personalized learning environment, the teacher is the guide on the learner's personal journey. When learners have choices to interact with the content and discuss what they watched, read, and learned, they are actively participating in learning. Encouraging learner voice and choice is the key difference to the other terms: differentiation and individualization. When learners have a voice in how they learn and a choice in how they engage with content and express what they know, they are more motivated to want to learn and own their learning.

The system needs to change from focusing on performance and tests to rethinking the design of teaching and learning around how learners learn best.

Flipping the classroom is about minimizing the amount of time we are spending on content delivery in the classroom so we can maximize time spent on challenging students to be active, while they collaborate and create.

Build a Simple Robot with a Tensegrity Structure | Make: ^ by Kathy Ceceri | On education | Scoop.it
A tensegrity structure can flex, stretch, compress when dropped or pressed, and then spring back into shape. It also has a high degree of compliance, which means it won’t harm people or equipment around it. That, together with its resilience, makes tensegrity a useful framework for robots that need to withstand jolts or squeeze and twist themselves through irregular spaces.

The directions for assembling this six-strut tensegrity structure out of drinking straws and rubber bands are based on a tensegrity icosahedron holiday ornament project from Bre Pettis that appeared on the Make: website in 2007.
