ManufacturingStories's insight:

A key first step in addressing the "SkillsGap" in US Manufacturing is building awareness. Students, parents, guidance and community leaders need to learn just how rewarding Advanced Manufacturing jobs can be. How "COOL" the technologies are and how safe and clean the plants are. In addition often overlooked facts are upward job mobility and company paid educational benefits. There is NO better way to learn these facts than a tour to a local manufacturing plant.

Your Students can be “Makers”: 16 Projects Invented by Teachers - Getting Smart

Your Students can be “Makers”: 16 Projects Invented by Teachers - Getting Smart | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it
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!

STEAMing Ahead with Susan: Get Skills. Be Awesome. | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

Ahh, the age-old question. What do you want to be when you grow up? Today's kids are finding that question harder and harder to answer. Actually, studies show "65 percent of today’s grade-school kids may end up doing work that hasn’t been invented yet" (Cathy Davidson).  If our kids will be doing work that isn't invented yet, what can we do to prepare them today?

Test-taking isn’t proficiency - New Hampshire Business Review - June 12 2015 | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it


One of my nieces was recently named “Student of the Year” by one of our Rotary International chapters. Because her father was working that evening, her proud uncle was invited to accompany her and her mother to the banquet.


In addition to honoring students from several communities, they also named “Teachers of the Year.” One of the teachers, a high school chemistry teacher, had taught in public education for over 30 years. He “retired” and began teaching the same subject at a Catholic high school. 


His introduction stressed his experience in both systems, and, in his acceptance speech, he explained what a Test-taking isn’t proficiency... ..Read More....
