What Are #Micro-Credentials, And Why Are They So Exciting? Makered.org  #makered | Τα παιδία παίζει και μαθαίνει | Scoop.it
Educators are always learning. In the classroom with students, at workshops and trainings, through the process of developing and facilitating lessons, and in so many more places educators are constantly building and refining their skills. Often, the skills developed in their day-to-day practice prove to be the most valuable tools for educators. With micro-credentials, educators can now be formally recognized for the skills and competencies they learn throughout their careers. Micro-credentials are research-backed, expert-assessed, representations of learned skills or competencies that can be presented as a digital badge. In partnership with Digital Promise and their micro-credential platform, Maker Ed is excited to share “Getting Started with Making,” a set of six maker education micro-credentials.

Maker Ed’s set of micro credentials focuses on six of the skills we believe are crucial to educators looking develop and expand their skills as maker educators. Each credential emphasizes our belief that maker education is most successful, impactful, and sustainable when the needs and interests of learners guide the learning experience. From designing the physical space in which making takes place to choosing the materials with which students will make, maker educators should plan in collaboration with learners. Here are the six credentials, and their key competencies:

Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings!

Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings! | Τα παιδία παίζει και μαθαίνει | 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.

If You Want Creative Kids, Hand Them Something Simple - Wired.com via @wterral | Τα παιδία παίζει και μαθαίνει | Scoop.it
“Children go out in the world, they look, they see—and a camera is another way for them to capture that,” says Tovah P. Klein, director of the Barnard College Center for Toddler Development and author of How Toddlers Thrive. “You were putting him in the world to look around.” And the stamps and games? “Those took him out of it.” The digital add-ons are a distraction that pulls their focus (literally) away from picture-taking and into a world of silly hats and goofy effects. And developmentally, little kids are very bad at filtering out distractions. “The more simple the toy they’re given,” Klein says, “the more they discover for themselves.”

Gamification to encourage learner autonomy

Gamification to encourage learner autonomy | Τα παιδία παίζει και μαθαίνει | Scoop.it
This post tries to pull together a couple of things I have been thinking about recently. The first was a post I saw on the 21st Century Fluency Project blog a few weeks back. The title of the article 'How I Turned My Classroom into a ‘Living Video Game’ caught my eye and before I even had time to read it I started thinking about how the factors that create motivation in computer games could be applied to the classroom.

The Gamification Guide - How To Gamify Your Class in 3 Stages | Τα παιδία παίζει και μαθαίνει | Scoop.it
Gamification is the use of game-mechanics and elements in non-game contexts. For the last six years, I’ve used gamification to turn my classroom into a video game to help motivate, engage, and empower my students. I’ve done hundreds of presentations on my unique style of gamification and have worked with dozens of teachers to turn their classroom into a video game. One of the things I’m always told is that an in-depth guide would be useful, so I wrote one!

What Meaningful Reflection On Student Work Can Do for Learning | Τα παιδία παίζει και μαθαίνει | Scoop.it
Students who are not naturally inclined to stop and think need explicit practices to nudge themselves toward quality reflection—and digital tools to make it easier. Keeping a log of tasks and habits, for example, gives students a rich source of data to mine when reflecting on their progress, and there are many apps that will collect and aggregate this information in accessible and attractive ways.
