Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings!

Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings! | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Who's ready for a little Halloween fun with Google Drawings? I've created a Halloween-themed magnetic poetry template with Google Drawings for you and your students. There are nearly 100 words in this one, so adapt the words that are appropriate for your grade levels. You can use this as an independent activity, or take it a step further and make it a collaborative activity and see how the poetry evolves. You can use the "magnets" included, or even add your own text boxes to extend the activity.

Collaborative Art with Sphero and Tickle App

Collaborative Art with Sphero and Tickle App | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Talk about putting the A in STEAM!

This week students in my Explore class will be learning the basics of blockly programing with the Tickle app and learn how to program Sphero. With an introduction to action art by famous artists such as Jackson Pollock, students will work together to learn how to program Sphero using the Tickle app to create a collaborative art piece! Yes, we are painting and programming a robot. Engagement is high in my classroom and my little programmers are using inquiry to figure out how to code. We begin with programing the Orca in Tickle and move toward programming Sphero. Our grand finale will be a collaborative art piece we can proudly display for our school community.

How to Transform Step-by-Step Directions into Inquiry - Cooper on Curriculum - @RossCoops31

How to Transform Step-by-Step Directions into Inquiry - Cooper on Curriculum - @RossCoops31 | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
In a previous post we explored a potential problem with prepackaged STEM products (or STEM in a box). In short, the problem is when schools and districts invest more in them than they do in their teachers. Because, if the ultimate goal is to leverage these resources to promote inquiry-based learning (which it should be), some form of professional learning is most likely needed, as opposed to simply handing over the goods and believing their potential will be maximized.

Now, let’s examine how teachers can take a product with step-by-step directions and transform/reconfigure it in such a way that inquiry-based learning is promoted…For the purpose of this post, we’ll look at how I previously accomplished this task with solar powered cars, but I believe these same ideas and steps can be applied across countless products/contexts.

35 Awesome Apps that Integrate with Google Classroom | Shake Up Learning

35 Awesome Apps that Integrate with Google Classroom | Shake Up Learning | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Did you know that Google Classroom plays well with others? Yep! Google is known for making their applications open to working with third-party applications, and Google Classroom is no exception. Are you using Google Classroom? I have put together a list of 35 Apps that Integrate with Google Classroom, making it even easier to create lessons and announcements with your favorite apps and resources. Last summer, Google opened the API for Google Classroom which means that other applications could connect or integrate more seamlessly with the platform. Translation: more goodies for you and your students! I wish everything connected to Google Classroom! But this is still a new option for developers, so it is not available through every application you use in your classroom. Expect this list of apps to grow a lot in 2016.

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how in order to do so… And that begins with you!

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills. It’s the new literacy for a generation of students growing up in a digitally-connected world. Having this knowledge not only strengthens general skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, but it will become invaluable in their future as a wide range of industries are eager to hire individuals with programming abilities.

What Students Feel Learning In A State Of Flow - TeachThought @JackieGerstein

What Students Feel Learning In A State Of Flow - TeachThought @JackieGerstein | Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Watch children, youth, and even adults when they are immersed in learning something of interest of them, and you will see often complete engagement and personal joy. When education is done “right”, learners often feel and experience the following in their both formal and informal educational environments:

      * Joy
      * Engaged
      * Excited
      * Wonderment
      * Intrinsically Motivated
      * Creative
      * Accomplishment and Pride (in themselves and in their work)
      * Connected (to the content, to other learners, to experts)
      * Purposeful
      * Important
      * Valued


All of these feelings described above are often experienced as part of a FLOW state. The characteristics of “Flow” according to its originator and researcher, Czikszentmihalyi, are:

      * Completely involved, focused, concentrating – with this either due to innate curiosity or as the result of training
      * Sense of ecstasy – of being outside everyday reality
      * Great inner clarity – knowing what needs to be done and how well it is going
      * Knowing the activity is doable – that the skills are adequate, and neither anxious or bored
      * Sense of serenity
      * Timeliness – thoroughly focused on present, don’t notice time passing
      * Intrinsic motivation – whatever produces “flow” becomes its own reward."

MUST KNOW Camera Features for iPad & iPhone Photography | iPad Art Room | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
“The best camera, is the one you have with you.” Chase Jarvis It’s a classic photographic mantra, a call to action for image-makers everywhere. And these days, the camera you are most likely to have with you is the one embedded in your smart phone.

But do you know how to use it? What about your students?

There are many great features built into our mobile devices for photography, and a myriad of apps to produce exciting visual imagery. While some teachers and students are experienced users creating highly original work using complex workflows and inventive techniques, in my workshops I am constantly amazed that it’s some of the most basic tips and tricks that get the most cheers, the practical solutions that are big wins for our classroom context.

So, here are six foundational tools built into the iPhone and iPad camera that all teachers and students should know.

Those who know me know that I'm a huge proponent of maker spaces in libraries. This article spoke so clearly about why. My biggest take-away? This statement: "A true makerspace is defined not by what's in it but rather by what comes out of it: projects, experiences, artifacts, and learning. The tools are just a means to an end." YES! It's not a shopping list of tools but a shift in thinking. It could be as simple as taking apart discarded technology or crafting something beautiful out of weeded books. Check out this article!
