Coding with Paper: Printable Space Race Game for Students - Fractus Learning | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
There are thousands of different ways to introduce programming to your class in fun and interactive ways for the upcoming Hour of Code (December 8-14). While most apps and tutorials do require internet connected computers or mobile devices, it does not mean that schools without this level of technology cannot get involved. In fact, coding with paper can be an even more engaging and meaningful way to introduce students to early programming concepts.

Coding is a skill of logic, maths and language every bit as much as computers and technology. The low-tech options here suit most schools.

Minecraft Officially Comes to Schools, But Teachers Have to Do All the Legwork

“ Microsoft acquires the MinecraftEdu mod and launches Minecraft: Education Edition.”

more...
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, January 23, 5:06 PM

This isn't a new idea for Minecraft, as the MinecraftEdu mod has been around since 2011. In fact, many of the ideas here came straight from MinecraftEdu, as created by TeacherGaming. The mod has allowed educators to bring students together in the virtual world and learn a variety of subjects.

"Geeky teachers have brought Minecraft to subjects ranging from history to biology to probability," wrote University of California professor Mizuko Ito on BoingBoing. "The game is being rolled out to every secondary school in Northern Ireland this month. If you're a parent, you've noticed Minecraft offerings spawning in your local summer camp listings. The Chicago Architecture Foundation offers a Minecraft camp for budding builders. Ninety-two libraries participated in the International Games Day Minecraft Hunger Games tournament, and crowned a 13-year-old girl as its champion. And, I've helped launch Connected Camps' Summer of Minecraft, a new in-game online camp."

Of course, it sounds similar to MinecraftEdu because Microsoft has simply acquired the mod from TeacherGaming. Instead of a popular unofficial mod, it's now an official product.

Why Makerspaces are Changing the World - Medium

Why Makerspaces are Changing the World - Create Anywhere - Medium

"The real impact of makerspaces is long term and hard to grade. These spaces enable experiences that over time can significantly strengthen self-efficacy, eliminate learned helplessness, and build an internal locus of control.

In makerspaces I’ve seen students teach their teachers about new technologies. I’ve seen 1st graders intuit the existence of cartesian coordinate systems just by observing 3D printers move. I’ve seen kids shout “YOU JUST DISCOVERED SOMETHING!” at classmates wearing ear-to-ear smiles. Teams of runny nosed kindergarteners are crafting Mars rovers out of chopsticks and 5th graders have built freaking 3D printed prosthetic hands before my eyes."

Can Kids As Young As Three Learn to Design and Create In Fab Labs? - Mind/Shift | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“ Screen time for young children has been a hotly contested debate among parents for years. Many worry that passive consumption of media through screens harms young children’s brain development, or at the very least means they are getting less interaction with caregivers, other children and hands-on play. On the other hand, most children under the age of 8 have access to a mobile device in the home and it can be hard to enforce an absolutely-no-screen-time rule. The Bay Area Discovery Museum, which focuses on hands-on, play-based learning, is trying to introduce a more active kind of technology use with the first Fab Lab for kids ages 3 and up.”
