Aligning the Maker Movement with Education » Online Universities

Aligning the Maker Movement with Education » Online Universities | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

In May of 2012 a "fabrication workshop and design incubator" called TechShop was opened in Detroit in partnership with Ford Global Technologies. The facility charges a membership fee to allow average people access to high end industrial machines where they can invent their own products. Ford itself encourages the use of the machines by their employees to design innovations for Ford vehicles. This workshop and several others are part of a DIY-inspired "Maker Movement" that has people engaged in fixing, tinkering, and producing things outside of the mainstream, established production channels.


DIY education is a growing movement. It's not just the idea of homeschooling, but rather breaking from the standardizations that currently stand in order to better serve personal needs and objectives going forward. e-Learning and m-Learning are going to be--if they aren't already--a big part of this movement as time progresses.

Let's Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum

Let's Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it
We're trying to raise money to buy back Nikola Tesla's old laboratory, known as the Wardenclyffe Tower, and eventually turn it into a museum.

 

Nikola Tesla was one of the premier inventors and scientists in the last century, and responsible for many things that came out of Thomas Edison's labs,but he did not get credit until well after his death. This is an opportunity to help support STEM initiatives--get people excited about sciences and all the accomplishments this man achieved in his lifetime. You can read more about it here: http://theoatmeal.com/blog/tesla_museum. I urge you to contribute as much as you can--even if it's just $1.00-- to this worthy cause! I'm going to, and I hope it happens so that I can take my son there one day.

Clark Aldrich Designs: Using Serious Games and Simulations: A Quick and Dirty Guide

Clark Aldrich Designs: Using Serious Games and Simulations: A Quick and Dirty Guide | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

A good educational simulation may look a lot like a casual computer game. It may have stylized, fast moving graphics. There may be a timer during some part of a level, and exaggerated consequences of failure. The person engaging the sim may look very much like a gamer, hunched over with a hand tightly grasped on the mouse and eyes riveted on the screen. The student may even be in a flow state, and having a lot of fun.
