What higher ed looks like now, and what that means for K-12 | Amplify | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

Many leaders in K-12 education talk about the promise of the digital revolution but have yet to fully embrace it. That’s because it’s hard. It takes a willingness to rethink how we’ve been teaching since Socrates. It requires a willingness to restructure and re-examine decades—sometimes centuries—of conventional wisdom about how students learn. It requires updating longstanding curriculum to match today’s digital native students. ..Read More....

New classroom mantra: Don't be bored. Make something

New classroom mantra: Don't be bored. Make something | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

Aundrey Page is a teacher at North Clayton High School and a Teach For America–Metro Atlanta alumnus.

In this piece, he describes the burgeoning Maker Movement in which aspiring inventors, tech pioneers, science geeks, math wizards and do-it-yourselfers gather and create stuff.  The movement has spawned Maker groups in Atlanta and across the country.  The unofficial motto of some of these clubs is "Don't be bored -- Make something."

Last week, the White House hosted its first Maker Faire.  The Maker movement is inspiring teachers to help students take their knowledge and make things in their classes. ..Read More....

The Maker Movement: Space for Fixers | | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

The past couple of years have seen the maker movement find its way into informal education spaces around the country. Makerspaces are popping up all over the place – in libraries, museums, storefronts and schools. The kinds of activities often associated with makerspaces include DIY (do-it-yourself) electronics, 3D printing, and computer programming. A more recent phenomena within the maker movement is the rise of repair cafes.


The idea behind the repair cafe is simple: offer a space for community members to come together and get help fixing broken items that might otherwise end up in the garbage. Here in New Mexico, we thought this was an idea worth spreading...Read More....
