Google Classroom: Updated Group Docs Maker - Teacher Tech

Google Classroom: Updated Group Docs Maker - Teacher Tech | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
To make the process of assigning students to groups and getting them going on editing the group’s template easier I coded an Add-on script: Group Docs Maker. This allows you to copy and paste your roster of students into the spreadsheet and automatically create a copy of a template for each group. Each group members name is automagically appended to the document title.

Demco Post: 3 Design Challenges for the Low Tech Makerspace

Demco Post: 3 Design Challenges for the Low Tech Makerspace | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Design challenges are a favorite tool of mine for inspiring student creativity in makerspaces (that’s why I co-wrote a book about them).  And by using low-tech materials in combination with design challenges, you can easily and affordably inspire student creativity.  Low-tech materials remind us that a makerspace is not defined by the specific materials and tools they contain, but rather by the learning experiences they create for students.

3 Design Challenges for the Low Tech Makerspace
To help make it easier for you to try out low-tech design challenges, I’ve written up prompts (based off the format in the book), supply lists and recommended resources.  Many of the supplies are things you may already have in your makerspace. If you don’t, you can easily source them.

Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings!

Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings! | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Who's ready for a little Halloween fun with Google Drawings? I've created a Halloween-themed magnetic poetry template with Google Drawings for you and your students. There are nearly 100 words in this one, so adapt the words that are appropriate for your grade levels. You can use this as an independent activity, or take it a step further and make it a collaborative activity and see how the poetry evolves. You can use the "magnets" included, or even add your own text boxes to extend the activity.

Collaborative Art with Sphero and Tickle App

Collaborative Art with Sphero and Tickle App | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Talk about putting the A in STEAM!

This week students in my Explore class will be learning the basics of blockly programing with the Tickle app and learn how to program Sphero. With an introduction to action art by famous artists such as Jackson Pollock, students will work together to learn how to program Sphero using the Tickle app to create a collaborative art piece! Yes, we are painting and programming a robot. Engagement is high in my classroom and my little programmers are using inquiry to figure out how to code. We begin with programing the Orca in Tickle and move toward programming Sphero. Our grand finale will be a collaborative art piece we can proudly display for our school community.

How to Transform Step-by-Step Directions into Inquiry - Cooper on Curriculum - @RossCoops31

How to Transform Step-by-Step Directions into Inquiry - Cooper on Curriculum - @RossCoops31 | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
In a previous post we explored a potential problem with prepackaged STEM products (or STEM in a box). In short, the problem is when schools and districts invest more in them than they do in their teachers. Because, if the ultimate goal is to leverage these resources to promote inquiry-based learning (which it should be), some form of professional learning is most likely needed, as opposed to simply handing over the goods and believing their potential will be maximized.

Now, let’s examine how teachers can take a product with step-by-step directions and transform/reconfigure it in such a way that inquiry-based learning is promoted…For the purpose of this post, we’ll look at how I previously accomplished this task with solar powered cars, but I believe these same ideas and steps can be applied across countless products/contexts.

Get girls coding to change the world

Get girls coding to change the world | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
The statistics are staggering. Just 24 percent of tech jobs are held by women. Roughly 74 percent of girls in middle school express an interest in STEM, but by the time they get to college, just 0.3 percent major in computer science. There will be 1.4 million new jobs in computer science by 2020, but only 3 percent will be filled by women.

Girls Who Code founder and CEO Reshma Saujani is on a mission to change that. In just five years, her organization has grown from 20 girls in New York City to 40,000 girls in all 50 states – four times the number of women who graduate with computer science degrees every year in the U.S.

“Every solution we want to find in the next 100 years will involve technology, and if you give girls entry, they won’t sit on the sidelines anymore.”

A passion for getting girls off the sidelines and into coding and computer science is behind everything Girls Who Code does through its 80 summer immersion programs and 1,000 clubs where girls learn coding, robotics, website development and app making. Because when you introduce girls to computer science (CS), they get it.|

But that introduction is a necessity.

35 Awesome Apps that Integrate with Google Classroom | Shake Up Learning | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Did you know that Google Classroom plays well with others? Yep! Google is known for making their applications open to working with third-party applications, and Google Classroom is no exception. Are you using Google Classroom? I have put together a list of 35 Apps that Integrate with Google Classroom, making it even easier to create lessons and announcements with your favorite apps and resources. Last summer, Google opened the API for Google Classroom which means that other applications could connect or integrate more seamlessly with the platform. Translation: more goodies for you and your students! I wish everything connected to Google Classroom! But this is still a new option for developers, so it is not available through every application you use in your classroom. Expect this list of apps to grow a lot in 2016.

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how in order to do so… And that begins with you!

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills. It’s the new literacy for a generation of students growing up in a digitally-connected world. Having this knowledge not only strengthens general skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, but it will become invaluable in their future as a wide range of industries are eager to hire individuals with programming abilities.

What Students Feel Learning In A State Of Flow - TeachThought @JackieGerstein

What Students Feel Learning In A State Of Flow - TeachThought @JackieGerstein | Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Watch children, youth, and even adults when they are immersed in learning something of interest of them, and you will see often complete engagement and personal joy. When education is done “right”, learners often feel and experience the following in their both formal and informal educational environments:

      * Joy
      * Engaged
      * Excited
      * Wonderment
      * Intrinsically Motivated
      * Creative
      * Accomplishment and Pride (in themselves and in their work)
      * Connected (to the content, to other learners, to experts)
      * Purposeful
      * Important
      * Valued


All of these feelings described above are often experienced as part of a FLOW state. The characteristics of “Flow” according to its originator and researcher, Czikszentmihalyi, are:

      * Completely involved, focused, concentrating – with this either due to innate curiosity or as the result of training
      * Sense of ecstasy – of being outside everyday reality
      * Great inner clarity – knowing what needs to be done and how well it is going
      * Knowing the activity is doable – that the skills are adequate, and neither anxious or bored
      * Sense of serenity
      * Timeliness – thoroughly focused on present, don’t notice time passing
      * Intrinsic motivation – whatever produces “flow” becomes its own reward."
