A 1:1 Teacher’s Take On How Students Really Act Online | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

In our inaugural year of a 1:1 program, this was the single greatest take-away in the classroom. Students crave a classroom without walls. They research, curate, dig, and explore with unmatched intensity when they believe feedback will come from beyond. They made movies, produced PSA’s (Public Service Announcements), back channeled, and published – incessantly seeking validation.

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, July 23, 11:31 AM

Teachers new to PBL and Making often make similar mistakes:

  • Choosing projects too large for their comfort level and resources
  • Focusing on the outcome, not the process of Making
  • Thinking the educator must have the answer
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 4:04 PM

This sounds remarkably similar to John Dewey who used the word reconstructing in describing real-world, concrete learning that can happen. This takes exceptional pedagogy and teaching in building  relationships with students.

Maker activities are great examples of self-organizing and we can learn a lot from how Maker Movement organizes space to support people's self-organizing.

Over the last decade, as information technology has revolutionized education, it has also spawned numerous inventive sub-cultures of software and hardware development that go to support education delivery. One of the most promising features of this eco-system has been educational apps.
