A Fuller Framework for Making in Maker Education - @JackieGerstein

A Fuller Framework for Making in Maker Education - @JackieGerstein | Tek Tips | Scoop.it

"I recently learned, for the first time, about Aristotle’s belief that there were three basic activities of humans: theoria (thinking), poiesis (making), and praxis (doing). Corresponding to these activities were three types of knowledge: theoretical, the end goal being truth; poietical, the end goal being production; and practical, the end goal being action (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praxis_(process))....


All of this led me to think about how this would translate into a full spectrum of making in the context of maker educator. Having such a framework would help insure that learning from the making experience is more robust, not left up to chance. I believe a fuller spectrum or framework would including the following elements:"

These high-tech classes are the coolest thing happening in schools today - Tech Insider | Tek Tips | Scoop.it

"America is in the midst of a "Do It Yourself" (DIY) renaissance. Spurred on by networks like HGTV and DIY, as well as websites like Pinterest, people of all stripes are getting in on the action.

One of the hotbeds of this maker movement? Schools.

From elementary to high school, college and beyond, schools are finding new ways to use 21st-century technology to bring back shop class with a vengeance (and possibly, revolutionizing the educational experience for a new generation of students). With improved access to groundbreaking technologies like 3D printers and laser cutters, young inventors, tinkerers, builders and budding entrepreneurs can prototype and build whatever they can dream up.

In the first episode of Future Now, we'll take you behind the scenes to some of the schools on the cutting edge of, well ... cutting edges. Meet the kids using these makerspaces to invent their own futures, one 3D printed prototype at a time. "

Kiddle Search Engine Is The Google For Kids | Tek Tips | Scoop.it
Seriously, kids have it so easy these days. Not only do they have smartphones to be able to communicate with their friends after school's out, but they also probably have more knowledge when it comes to using computers than their parents. While this could be a great thing — they are the future, you know — it can also be very bad if they start searching for or accidentally pulling up things they aren't supposed to see.

Now, to the delight of parents, kids will be able to use their very own version of Google when using this search engine called Kiddle.

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift | Tek Tips | Scoop.it
Adilene Rodriguez admits she has always struggled with academics. Especially in middle school she hated getting up early, found her classes boring and didn’t really see where it was all going. When she started her freshman year at Arroyo High School in San Lorenzo, California, just south of Oakland, she was a shy student who rarely spoke up in class and had little confidence in herself as a scholar.

Rodriguez is now a senior and her approach to school has changed dramatically over her high school career. She attributes her shift to her freshman science teacher, Jim Clark, who taught the class about growth mindset from the very beginning and backed up the discussion with action.

“He would tell me, ‘You need to push yourself, that’s how you’re going to grow. Be confident. You’re not always going to be successful on your first tries, but you can get there,’ ” Rodriguez said

Carol Dweck"s book Mindset is a great resource for teachers who want to learn more about this topic.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 15, 10:29 PM
"She also tries hard to model a growth mindset to her students by being open about her own struggles as a parent and a teacher. “They’re not used to teachers apologizing,” Rodgers said. “But I tell them I’m going to make mistakes all the time. And I think showing that helps them realize they can actually make mistakes.” When teachers and administrators say they want kids to have a growth mindset, the school environment has to back up that rhetoric. At Arroyo, the emphasis on growth mindset came alongside a shift to standards-based grading. Kids can see that mistakes along the way aren’t negatively affecting them and keep working to master the concepts. “When you believe it; they believe,” Rodgers said. “If I didn’t believe this, they wouldn’t buy what I’m selling.”"

Add Coding to Your Elementary Curriculum. . . Right Now - Edutopia

Add Coding to Your Elementary Curriculum. . . Right Now - Edutopia | Tek Tips | Scoop.it

"Code.org sums up the situation nicely:

"Computer science drives innovation in the U.S. economy and society. Despite growing demand for jobs in the field, it remains marginalized throughout the U.S. K-12 education system."

There are many reasons for this. As you well know, teachers are already stretched pretty thin, and often it seems like there's just no bandwidth to add something new to a very full schedule. Additionally, some schools have few or no computers and/or tablets for classroom use.

But the earlier we introduce children to coding, the more comfortable they will be when presented with more in-depth learning opportunities in middle and high school. Also, early exposure to coding helps teach children how important it is to understand computers as the valuable tools they are rather than merely fun playthings."

A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.  These spaces are open to kids, adults, and entrepreneurs and have a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters, cnc machines, soldering irons and even sewing machines.  A makerspace however doesn’t need to include all of these machines or even any of them to be considered a makerspace.  If you have cardboard, legos and art supplies you’re in business.  It’s more of the maker mindset of creating something out of nothing and exploring your own interests that’s at the core of a makerspace.  These spaces are also helping to prepare those who need the critical 21st century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  They provide hands on learning, help with critical thinking skills and even boost self-confidence.  Some of the skills that are learned in a makerspace pertain to electronics, 3d printing, 3D modeling, coding, robotics and even woodworking,   Makerspaces are also fostering entrepreneurship and are being utilized as incubators and accelerators for business startups.  There have already been some amazing success stories that have come out of makerspaces to date.
