Engaging Parents to Sustain Making in Schools - Getting Smart

Engaging Parents to Sustain Making in Schools - Getting Smart | Technology in Classroom | Scoop.it
“ It’s an exciting time to be a maker educator. It seems like everywhere I look, there’s inspirational work happening in community fab labs, a school launching a new innovation program, or a library incorporating STEAM into its space. At St. Gabriel’s in Austin, Texas, we entered the fray last fall with STEAM by Design, an approach to constructivist learning that uses classroom space in conjunction with a dedicated fab lab.”

Microduino and mCookie

Microduino and mCookie | Technology in Classroom | Scoop.it
Small size, great power! Microduino and mCookie bring powerful, small, stackable electronic hardware to makers, designers, engineers, students and curious tinkerers of all ages. Build open-source projects or create innovative new ones. 

All Microduino and mCookie boards are Arduino-compatible. Experienced makers can write their own programs in the Arduino IDE and transmit their code to the hardware via USB, while novices can take advantage of open-source Scratch programming to drag and drop pre-written code. 

 Microduino dramatically decreases the size and cost of design prototyping, improves usability and flexibility of Arduino-compatible boards, and enhances the user experience for any age with different skill level. 

 Microduino and mCookie modules, sensors and accessories are typically applied in idea realization, prototype development, low-volume production and etc.

Great Read! Using Twitter To Extend My Math Lessons

Great Read! Using Twitter To Extend My Math Lessons | Technology in Classroom | Scoop.it

My students learn from others on Twitter and share their learning with a broader community. Through whole-group Twitter activities (mirroring our iPads through Apple TV) and individual Twitter activities (tweeting independently using iPads), my students recognize that there are connections to be made beyond our Ontario classroom.

Indeed, students do turn to Google first. Teacher Librarians however, need to be directing students to other suitable search engines for their research.
