Does Not Compute | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
The High Cost of Low Technology Skills in the U.S.--and What We Can Do About ItAlthough American millennials are the first generation of "digital natives"--that is, people who grew up with computers and the internet--they are not very tech savvy. That fact would probably come as a shock to most Americans--especially to millennials themselves. After all, millennials are glued to their phones, tablets, and other devices. Many assume that using technology often means using it well.

iPaddling through Fourth Grade-Encourage...Engage...Enlighten...Empower: Coding in the Elementary Classroom

iPaddling through Fourth Grade-Encourage...Engage...Enlighten...Empower: Coding in the Elementary Classroom | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Over the course of the weeks not only did my students learn how to code, but they learned so many important life-skills.  Students participated in "Plugged" and Unplugged" activities.  Months ago, I took a code.org class which was a turning point in my "World of Code". With some guidance and little help, my students began their journey into coding and programming.

What did my students learn?


     * Persistence
     * Collaboration
     * Problem Solving
     * Logical Reasoning
     * Critical Thinking
     * Cause and Effect
     * Being Inquisitive
     * Communication Skills
     * Having Fun

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
A 3D Printer is a manufacturing tool used to create three-dimensional artifacts that have been designed on a computer. 3D printers have a wide range of shapes, sizes, and types, but in essence they are all computer controlled additive manufacturing machines. Similar to how paper printers lay down ink in one layer to create an image, 3D printers lay down or cure material layer by layer to create a three-dimensional object.

3D printers have a huge range of applications; designers use them to test out product ideas, manufacturing companies use them to make complicated parts for assemblies, and makers use them for DIY fabrication for anything they can imagine. Although the different types and uses of 3D printers vary widely, all 3D printers can be simply described as tools; they allow people to make things that they weren't able to make before.

From this guide you will learn what 3D printers are, how they work, when they should be used, and how to design for them and use them. I'll also provide some resources on purchasing printers and 3D printing services. Once you're through it, hopefully you'll be able to print some things yourself!

Photo proof is required to receive points for a mission. Luckily, our smartphone apps make completing a mission incredibly easy.
Just select the mission you want to complete from the mission list, take a picture with the phone's camera and press the submit button. You'll receive the points right away, but remember that all photos are subject to review. This means that you can lose those points at any time if the photo isn't good enough.
