8 tips to help create and sustain a makerspace

8 tips to help create and sustain a makerspace | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Though makerspaces are becoming more mainstream, creating and maintaining one could overwhelm educators who are starting from scratch.

Aside from the technology tools and other resources that make up the space, it’s wise to have a plan in terms of when students will use the space, how it will be shared, where funding will come from, and how students will demonstrate what they are learning.

A makerspace is loosely defined as an area in which people–in this case, students and educators–use creativity, technology and computing to work on different projects and ideas, said October Smith, the K-12 science coordinator in Lamar Consolidated ISD, during a TCEA 2017 session.

Why the maker movement? People who want to make things and share those ideas and creations, Smith said.

“You’re all makers–you produce things each day,” Smith said. “Leonardo DaVinci was a maker. This is not something new. We just talk about it more now.”

If you do fewer teacher-directed activities, that means the kids will naturally do more talking, doesn’t it?  Not necessarily. I have often found myself talking almost constantly during group work and student-directed projects because I’m trying to push kids’ thinking, provide feedback, and help them stay on task. Even when the learning has been turned over …

Existen este tipo de aplicaciones que podemos utilizar para crear un enlace tecnológico con nuestros estudiantes. En mi experiencia con Google Classroom es muy fácil de accesar y crear un sitio donde compartimos información y asignamos tareas. En esta red podemos monitorear los avances de cada estudiante y brindarles información adicional de ser necesario. En mi revisión de este articulo puedo notar interesante que algunas vinculan a los padres para que estén notificados de el aprendizaje y rendimiento de sus hijos especialmente en la etapa de evaluación. En gran parte de los centros de estudios muchas veces se encuentran disyuntivas entres padres y profesor en este sentido.
