What is the competition? - We Made It

What is the competition? - We Made It | STEM Learning Tools & Resources | Scoop.it

Looking for the new James Dyson

The 'We Made It!' competition is a new and exciting contest aimed at getting young people thinking about a career in manufacturing.

We're inviting young people aged between 13-16 (year 9-11) to design something, anything in fact, and have the chance to make it yourself in a real high-tech factory. All you need to do is send us your design for a gadget, toy or gismo that doesn't already exist, and you could win a trip to one of our special 'Fab Labs' with your local MP, where you can make your ideas into reality.

All winners will also be invited to an awards reception in the Houses of Parliament, and the overall UK winner, as judged by our panel of manufacturing experts, will receive a special award which will be presented at the event.

The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By Yo

The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By Yo | STEM Learning Tools & Resources | Scoop.it

One of the most popular posts on Edudemic in 2010 was The 35 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You and I felt it might be time for an update to that list for 2011.

 

In order to put together a list of the best Web 2.0 classroom tools, I polled my Twitter followers, Facebook fans (are they still called fans? Likes?) and ran a contest to try and get as many submissions as possible.

 

There were more than 900 submissions but many were duplicates. This left me with 100 different Web 2.0 tools that are recommended by your peers. After all, what better way to uncover new products than by the people you are already sharing with?

EdTech: 100 Tech Tools for Teachers and Students | DailyTekk | STEM Learning Tools & Resources | Scoop.it

So here’s what I’ve got for all you educators our there: some random and cool EduTech tools, tech tools for teachers and students, ways to integrate mobile devices into the classroom, social learning tools, elearning and online learning resources and finally some test prep, textbook, educational gaming and a few other random resources. What you won’t find here are any lame attempts to pawn off something that’s not an education-specific tech tool as something marvelous and new like I’ve seen on a few other blogs (like Gmail or Skype–definitely useful, but come on, not education specific). The scope of this list covers everything from Kindergarten-age up through college-age so there’s hopefully something for everyone here.
