Why Making Is Essential to Learning @Edutopia #makered

Why Making Is Essential to Learning @Edutopia #makered | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Making is as old as learning itself. While the maker movement may only be about a decade old, the human desire to create dates back to the earliest forms of human activity, from making stone tools to drawing on cave walls (Halverson & Sheridan, 2014; Martinez & Stager, 2014). Thinkers such as Pestalozzi, Montessori, and Papert helped paved the way for the maker movement by stressing the importance of hands-on, student-centered, meaningful learning. Instead of viewing learning as the transmission of knowledge from teacher to student, these thinkers embraced the idea that children learn best when encouraged to discover, play, and experiment.

More recently, maker education is being used as a way to connect do-it-yourself informal learning to classrooms. Driven by new technologies such as 3D printing, robotics, and kid-friendly coding, making is emerging as an effective way to introduce students to STEM, particularly women and minorities. By incorporating elements of making into the classroom, educators can bridge the gap between what students are passionate about and what they're learning in school.

Official Website of Root | The robot that brings code to life

Official Website of Root | The robot that brings code to life | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Root is designed to fit into every classroom. The robot operates on the whiteboard that's already at the front of the room and has the attention of the class. Coding with Root requires no special setup. Unlike structured websites that teach coding as an individual activity based on exercises with unique solutions, the classroom environment with shared robots provides opportunities for social learning and more freeform creativity. Coding with robots is an inherently dynamic experience; robot, environment, and students all react to each other, stimulating students to come up with diverse solutions and challenges together. People love robots—they have a powerful appeal to all ages and demographics, making interactions and relationships with them far more compelling than images confined to a computer screen.

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies | Technology in 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.
