Grade 3-6 classrooms wanted! 'Windows to the World' (penpal) global project

Grade 3-6 classrooms wanted! 'Windows to the World' (penpal) global project | E-LEARNING | Scoop.it
Remember the excitement around having a penpal? I remember almost 50 years ago having a penpal in Germany - and how strange life sounded in that country! His name was 'Axel' and his letters inspired curious conversations and inquiry into what life was like for this mystery person on the other side of the world. Well,

Australia leading Virtual store shopping using #VR Ikea & Myer begin the stay at home, 'be' down the mall - SmartCompany

Australia leading Virtual store shopping using #VR Ikea & Myer begin the stay at home, 'be' down the mall - SmartCompany | E-LEARNING | Scoop.it
Soon, the only reason to step inside an Ikea store could be the meatballs. The at times wacky Swedish furniture retailer announced the introduction of its new online virtual reality store in Australia yesterday, which will allow customers to don their VR goggles and take a virtual walk through an Ikea store. Customers in regional …

Quote "Customers in regional areas that have access to the store’s recently rolled-out online shopping offerings can make purchases through the VR application and have them delivered, while inner-city shoppers can organise a click and collect. While the technology works best with VR goggles, the retailer has also created a basic, non-VR offering to allow users to browse the store from a desktop computer, operating much like Google StreetView. The company claims the approach is a first for a large-format retailer in Australia. However, Myer also dabbled in VR last year, creating a virtual department store for customers who were unable to get into a bricks and mortar location."

10 Exciting Engineering Toys for Girls - Avatar Generation | E-LEARNING | Scoop.it
On average, boys have more engineering driven toys than girls. That has been drastically changed with engineering toys for girls popping up all over. These various kits and play sets encourage girls to use their imaginations and open up to the possibilities of building and interacting with toys more. No matter what young girls are into, there is a STEM based kit that will cater to their tastes. These kits allow you to build your own doll house, make a working theme park or create fashion and accessories that incorporate technology. With these engineering toys for girls, not only will they enjoy hours of fun, but they will also be learning about moving parts, building and interjecting technology into basic designs. With simple designs to start with, as they grow the sky is the limit to how they can apply these skills into their life.

Kubo, the robot that teaches kids to code, is now available for preorder | #Coding #MakerED #MakerSpaces

Kubo, the robot that teaches kids to code, is now available for preorder | #Coding #MakerED #MakerSpaces | E-LEARNING | Scoop.it
We saw tons of new stuff at CES this year. But one thing that particularly caught our eye was Kubo, the robot that teaches kids how to code.

Kubo is a pretty simple robot – it’s about the size of a can of soda and has two wheels that allow it to roll around a desk or table. But what it lacks in advanced physical ability it makes up for in brains.

Kubo comes with its own programming language called TagTile. The language consists of puzzle pieces that fit together to give Kubo instructions. For example, you could connect three pieces together – forward, turn, then another forward. Kubo then drives over these pieces oncer to “learn” the command, then can remember and perform it without needing the pieces.

Kubo reads the puzzle pieces using an RFID technology – each piece has an individual embedded RFID tag, and Kubo itself has a reader built in.

While it sounds simple, it’s a pretty good way to teach kids the basics of programming without having them stare at a screen.

Assessing Student Project Work

Assessing Student Project Work | E-LEARNING | Scoop.it
Project work challenges students to think beyond the boundaries of the classroom, helping them develop the skills, behaviors, and confidence necessary for success in the 21st-century. Designing learning environments that help students question, analyze, evaluate, and extrapolate their plans, conclusions, and ideas, leading them to higher–order thinking, requires feedback and evaluation that goes beyond a letter or number grade. The term “authentic assessment” is used to describe assessment that evaluates content knowledge as well as additional skills like creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and innovation.

Authentic assessment documents the learning that occurs during the project-building process and considers the real-world skills of collaboration, problem solving, decision making, and communication. Since project work requires students to apply knowledge and skills throughout the project-building process, you will have many opportunities to assess work quality, understanding, and participation from the moment students begin working.

Rubrics, when well thought-out and well-used, are great tools. The key is to sit with your curricula each time you assign a project and review the outcomes. Second, take time and discuss the rubric with students. What is expected? What do they understand and not? How can they use the rubric to guide their learning? Third, take time to talk and listen as they use the rubrics. A rubric is a conversation.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, March 14, 2017 8:21 AM
Team building games offer students fun opportunities to hone critical skills for success in the modern workplace. Students (and future employees!) that value teamwork are more motivated and creative. They’re also better at problem solving and communicating with one another and have a higher level of trust. We already know students love working in groups. Why not make a game of it?
Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, March 18, 2017 12:10 AM
Critical thinking is the most important skill to develop, since in these times of information at hand, we cannot believe everything we see, read, and hear, and that is why it is important to develop this ability as it allows us to be alert and question everything that comes from these means of information. Is a skill that moves a student from concrete ideas to abstract and inferred concepts. Critical thinking allows us to analyze outcomes, compare ideas, identify parallels, sequence events, synthesize information and draw conclusions from a given body of knowledge. Whether it is the proof behind a mathematics formula or an implied tone in an essay, critical thinking skills enable students to solve problems in the real world and on exams in school. Meghan Moll (2014) suggests five tools to develop the critical thinking skills necessary for success on every high school or college test and assignment. 1. Brain games: Recently, websites dedicated to training your brain have enjoyed increased popularity. Lumosity, for example, provides games that aid in improving memory and problem-solving. From timed matching games to order sequence memorization, websites like this can aid in cognition and the ability to ask, "What is the next step?" This skill is critical to learning how to approach complex problems on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. Rather than playing time-wasting games when you have a lull in your day, search online for brain teasers and peruse the plethora of brain games at your fingertips. 2. Logic puzzles: Before the Internet, puzzles intended to exercise your brain were published in books. Collections of crossword puzzles, logic problems, riddles, sudoku, word problems and word searches can be found at your local bookstore or library. The puzzles in these books are a wonderful strategy to activate different parts of your brain for a round or two of mental gymnastics, and many collections even discuss what each puzzle is meant to target within the mind. 3. Board games: This suggestion may seem strange at first, but do not balk. Choose board games that require more than luck – namely, strategy – for players to win. Any game where players must carefully consider their next move, recognize patterns and remember details will aid in honing critical thinking skills. Certain games like Rubik’s Cube are single-player, while others involve multiple people. Checkers, chess and Mastermind are two-player games that challenge you to plan several steps ahead. Games like Boggle and Scrabble require analyzing information quickly and formulating words, while Clue and Risk test and strengthen your ability to anticipate and react to others’ moves, as well as infer motives. 4. Journaling: Daily reflection – such as maintaining a journal – is a simple way to revisit your day, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to explore ideas. Writing encourages you to expand upon your thoughts and form connections. A journal forces you to slow down and focus on just one or two ideas at a time, which hectic schedules don't otherwise allow. Use your journal to record important ideas and questions and narratives about your life. 5. Book clubs: Students who read for understanding find it far easier to think critically than those who rush to finish. Analyzing a book requires you to delve deeper and ponder complex questions. When reading, think about why the book was written the way it was, what motivates certain characters, and how plot developments may be symbols of foreshadowing. Locate a book club to hone these skills. You will read works you otherwise may not have, and you will learn to examine character development, plot, symbolism and a whole host of other features.
