It's great to see a crowdfunding (crowdsource funding) site for Education! Have a look and see if your education or training activities might benefit from such funding or at least the exposure to this community online.

Interesting idea!

TechShop: Welcome To Your Neighborhood Xerox Parc - Forbes | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it
In 2006 Jim Newton, a former MythBusters science adviser and BattleBots competitor, paged through his notebook filled with 224 invention ideas. 

 

"...Now with six locations charging a $125 monthly fee, TechShop offers members–amateurs and engineers alike– work-space and access to every conceivable tool required to create their inventions. “Making things is fundamental to what it means to be human,” pines CEO Mark Hatch, citing work by Jung and Hegel to make his point. “For the price of a Starbucks addiction, we give you tools to make whatever you want.”" from source: http://www.forbes.com/

ghbrett's insight:

Tinkering and making requires the right skill and tools. Emerging services and locations like TechShop and MakerPlace are fulfilling these needs. This article from Forbes does a good job explaining some of the resources, products and concepts of a tinkerer and maker friendly resource. It is a worthwhile read.

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it

If you have been following my blog series on The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture, you know that I am using this opportunity, given all the press on flipped classroom, to discuss a model of teaching and learning based on experiential education.  It is a model in which authentic, often hands-on, experiences and student interests drive the learning process, and the videos, as they are being proposed in the flipped classroom discourse, support the learning rather than being central or at the core of learning.


...

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture [diagram] has four phases:

1. Experiential Engagement: The Activity
2. Concept Exploration: The What
3. Meaning Making: The So What
3. Demonstration: The Now What"

ghbrett's insight:

This is a jam packed article that does a good job of explaining the model and processes of Flipped Learning. The information is backed up with plenty of links to more resources, content, and video media. Well worth reading for tinkerers, educators, and trainers.

This is an amazing resource. It's a shame that it is so far away from where I am.
