21 Incredible Maker Ed Kits For Learning - TeachThought

21 Incredible Maker Ed Kits For Learning - TeachThought | Just for Librarians! | Scoop.it

"Being a relatively new concept, the definition of Maker Ed isn’t exactly set in stone, though it roughly relates learning making making.

 

What your definition of “making” is will likely help you form your definition of maker ed and learning through making, whether that be clay for sculpting, wood and saws for building, or apps for digital wares.

 

The 21 kits below are a part of this movement, but they’re also incredibly cool. They have less to do with making from scratch and more to do with making from pre-made materials (kits), but that doesn’t make them any less useful for learning through play and creation. Oh, and we’ve got 2 or 3 books in there as well."

Minecraft Club: Want to bring the hottest game into your classroom or library? Here's how. - The Digital Shift | Just for Librarians! | Scoop.it

Lately, there’s been more drama than usual in our library. At the moment, one of my students is swapping some diamonds—yes, diamonds—for a hefty amount of railway ties. Another is secretly plotting to swipe an unsuspecting classmate’s body armor. And a group of friends can’t believe their luck: they’ve just stumbled across a trove of valuable chests in an abandoned mineshaft.

 

Welcome to our Minecraft club. Every Friday afternoon, 28 middle school and high school kids get together in our library’s computer lab to feast on candy and play one of the world’s hottest video games.
