Where Are the Video Games Women Really Want? | Gaming | TechNewsWorld | ALPs Gazette | Scoop.it
Ask anyone to describe a hardcore gamer and the image that comes to mind is probably that of a geeky, teenaged, socially awkward male who spends countless hours locked in his bedroom.

6 Activities To Bring Maker Education Into Your Classroom | Toronto Tool Library

6 Activities To Bring Maker Education Into Your Classroom | Toronto Tool Library | ALPs Gazette | Scoop.it
A couple of weeks ago, our Youth Programming Coordinator Michelle shared with us the importance of getting youngsters involved in maker education.

The skill set required by the world and the economy in the coming decades is intimately linked to what is learned through a good maker education.
Fortunately, the Maker Movement is making its way into classrooms around the world. We asked Michelle what her top 6 picks would be to help educators bring maker activities into their classrooms (each link leads to a lesson plan)!
