Personalized vs. differentiated vs. individualized learning | Technology and Education | Scoop.it
Modern classrooms are teeming with students of varying interests, backgrounds, abilities and learning needs. As educators, it’s important to understand the nuanced differences between the terms personalized, differentiated and individualized learning in order to best meet their needs.

A Student Maker and the Birth of a Startup - Edutopia

A Student Maker and the Birth of a Startup - Edutopia | Technology and Education | Scoop.it
I always felt trapped in school, with teachers telling me what to do and feeding me information that did not make sense. Honestly, I hated school and rarely paid attention or did homework. Obviously, I was mad when my mother forced me to go to my middle school's Summer Maker Camp. It sounded extremely boring. More school in the summer? I think not.

Within the first hour of camp, the teachers presented us with a challenge: Create a project related to something you love, incorporate some type of technology, and possibly start a business around it. I never did anything like this in school before. It was open-ended, and I could do it my own way, instead of sitting at a desk and being told to open to page 84. This excited me. I could work on a project that I chose!

School Makerspaces: Building the Buzz - Edutopia

School Makerspaces: Building the Buzz - Edutopia | Technology and Education | Scoop.it
If you build it, will they come? Just because you create a makerspace (PDF) in your school doesn't guarantee that your community will embrace it. Students who have had all personal choice removed by traditional educational models can be passive and feel overwhelmed when faced with real-world problems or design challenges. Academic passivity is common in schools where students swallow content and regurgitate it on multiple-choice tests. Students simply want to know how to get the "A." This type of learning does not stick.

Teachers may find the role of facilitator (or "guide on the side") uncomfortable if they are used to being the "sage on the stage." New technology in these spaces may be intimidating. Teachers need encouragement and professional development to change their mindsets and become facilitators of learning.

How do you change your culture and ensure that your shiny new makerspace will empower students to acquire 21st-century skills? How do you change the culture of student apathy to encourage a mindset of doing? Follow these steps and design tips to build a culture of making and active learning.

Funding School Makerspaces | Make: DIY Projects, How-Tos, Electronics, Crafts and Ideas for Makers | Technology and Education | Scoop.it
Your Makerspace may not need much of a budget to operate, if you have a space you can use for free, tools to borrow, and materials found or donated. For some Makerspaces, the ones with lots of parental involvement, many of the projects are self-funded. But if your Makerspace takes place at a school without as much family support, or if you simply do not have this all in place, you may need to research community or family foundation grants to fill in the gap.

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies | Technology and Education | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have been working hard to develop a set of commercially available lesson materials. These lesson plans aren't specifically designed for English language learners, though they will be useful for students at higher levels who want stimulating skills based practice or for any teacher interested in developing a CLIL or content based approach to language learning. They were designed to enable any teacher to develop students in a way that is more closely aligned to the kinds of skills they will need to function effectively and critically in the digital world.

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Things I Learned While Re-reading Invent to Learn

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Things I Learned While Re-reading Invent to Learn | Technology and Education | Scoop.it
While book publishers send me many books to read throughout the year, very few ever get mentioned on this blog because I am not in the business of writing book reviews. That said, when I do find a book that I think many of you will enjoy, I'll share it.

When Sylvia Martinez and Gary Stager published Invent to Learn a couple of years I quickly read it on my Android tablet through the Kindle app. Then in March of this year I had a chance to talk with Gary for a while at a conference that we were both invited to in Sydney. While there I bought a paperback copy of Invent to Learn. I have now read it two more times and filled it with notes in the margins of the pages (scribbling notes is the best part about having a physical copy of a book). In no particular order, here are five highlights from the notes I've taken while reading Invent to Learn.

5 steps for creating a custom makerspace - Laura Fleming  @NHMS_lms  eSchool News | Technology and Education | Scoop.it

"When schools talk about the maker movement and creating makerspaces, they often focus on purchasing the tools and materials first. While a physical room stocked with tools is an important part of the process, even more significant is the process used to plan your space. Paying close attention to how you design and formulate your space within the very specific context of your own school and its community will ensure that the resulting space is authentic and meaningful to the whole school community.

 

The following approach to planning will help ensure that your makerspace is a vibrant and thriving one."

Why 3D Printing Needs to Take Off in Schools Around the World - 3DPrint.com

Why 3D Printing Needs to Take Off in Schools Around the World - 3DPrint.com | Technology and Education | Scoop.it

."Where 3D printing has yet to really make a huge impact, but provides an ample amount of opportunity, is within educational institutions. These range from elementary schools to high schools, universities, and maker spaces around the globe. One reason that 3D printing has been quite slow in making its impact in these institutions is simply because of the lack of knowledge of the technology by the decision makers in charge.

Because the technology is so relatively new, the greatest impact may come via the introduction of 3D printing into public and private grade schools. The younger a person is, the easier it usually is to introduce new ideas and methodologies. This is why young children are so quick to learn new languages, when compared to their older adult counterparts. This is what makes elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools the perfect place to begin really introducing a curriculum based around 3D printing.

Just about every subject within a school curriculum could benefit from 3D printing technology. We will outline a few of these below:"

Makers in the Making: Kindergarten Problem Solving with Lego Mazes - Amber Mazur

Makers in the Making: Kindergarten Problem Solving with Lego Mazes - Amber Mazur | Technology and Education | Scoop.it
Looking for some fun and engaging ways to have kindergarten kids participate in problem solving (and creating), I turned to my trusty friend, Lego. Like many division one teachers, I use Lego often because it has so many applications. But as the 2014-15 school year came to a close, I was looking for a challenge. So, what I did was created a maze with Lego that a marble would travel to and showed this to the kids. I then challenged the kids to make a maze that would fit the marble (there had to be three empty spaces for width at all times).
