Why Are Tweets Only 140 Characters Long? | Integration and Teaching: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
The good news is that Twitter is planning to lift its 140-character limit for tweets. But that just raises a different question: why did that limit exist in the first place? It's because Twitter started out via SMS.

The #1 Makerspace Resource: Your Students!

The #1 Makerspace Resource: Your Students! | Integration and Teaching: Ed Tech | Scoop.it

If you are looking to start a makerspace at your school or library, there are a wealth of resources available to help you get started. I would be so lost if it weren't for many of these. They also have a lot of research supporting the maker movement.

* MakerEd.org
* Makeit@YourLibrary
* Remake Learning
* Makerspace.com

In addition, there have been a few key individuals whose blogs I follow religiously. 

*  Renovated Learning - blog of Diana Rendina @DianaLRendina

 

* Create, Collaborate, Innovate - blog of Colleen Graves @gravescolleen


* Worlds of Learning  - blog of Laura Fleming @NMHS_lms

These resources have been invaluable to me in determining projects, designing the space, and the many planning and logistics that are involved. They've also helped me anticipate and work through any issues that may arise. 

What these resources didn't provide was the voice from my students and teachers. No matter how many reputable sources or blogs I consulted, I wasn't getting the input and feedback that really mattered. "
