The Rise of The Robot Teacher - The Tech Edvocate

The Rise of The Robot Teacher - The Tech Edvocate | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Machines have become part of our daily lives. Many homemakers use a Roomba or a iRobot to sweep their floors daily. Talk robot companions like Tapia serve as useful companions who alert, remind, encourage and support their owners in domestic capacities. Interactive robots are making their way into schools, as well. Finland and other countries, for example, have already experimented with instructional robots. These machines ask questions, listen for responses, and read facial expressions as they interact with students. Educators have found five interactive robots particularly useful for academic and social learning."

How to Enhance Any Curriculum With Short, Engaging, Accurate Videos | EdSurge News

How to Enhance Any Curriculum With Short, Engaging, Accurate Videos | EdSurge News | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Jadrian Wooten remembers professors instructing him to check out DVD clips from the library when he was an undergrad. Today, as an associate teaching professor of economics at Penn State in University Park, Pennsylvania, Wooten is on the flip side of the camera; he creates his own short educational videos to enhance traditional reading materials and lectures. “Today’s students generally want deeper or more nuanced information from their professors,” he says. “And they like to use video to get foundational information super fast.”

Today’s students generally want deeper or more nuanced information from their professors.
University of Texas at Austin psychology instructor Brooke Miller adds that the internet and YouTube have changed instruction. “We can use short videos to help students who are falling behind—and to give more advanced students the chance to have deeper discussions in class.”

While both agree on the merits of instructional videos, they know how difficult it can be to find “perfect” content—short but not too short, engaging but not gimmicky, and offering the right information with the right level of detail. They also agree that producing original videos can be daunting: It requires competency in videography, sound, graphics, diction, and more. This is why Miller and Wooten recently teamed up with Course Hero, a platform where professionals in higher education share their teaching innovations, inspiration, and practical advice.

Girls Who Code Helps Draft ‘Landmark’ Legislation Aimed at Closing the Gender Gap | EdSurge News | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
In the 10 months since Girls Who Code announced a set of policy recommendations aimed at closing the gender gap in K-12 computer science, the national nonprofit has been working with states to promote legislation that would help measure the extent of the gender disparity in U.S. classrooms.

On Wednesday, Washington became the first state to get on board with Girls Who Code’s policy agenda when Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, signed into law a bill written with the expressed intention of closing the gender gap in computer science fields.

Control Alt Achieve: Hipster Google 2 - Even More Google Tools You Probably Never Heard Of | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Well since then, so many new unique Google tools have come out! I have done my best to grab these new tools as they came out and add them to my ever-growing list in Google Docs. However, I did not update my original blog post to share these new tools in detail. So I figured it was time for a new entry to share all of the awesome new Hipster Google resources!

You can see the original list of Hipster Google tools in my blog post from a couple years back: "Hipster Google - Google Tools You Probably Never Heard Of".

And below you can see a new collection of lesser know, but awesome, tools. As always, chances are you will have heard of some of these, but hopefully there will be a few new ones on the list for you to explore. If we all try hard enough we can get schools using these all around the world, and they won't be Hipster anymore. But for now they are, so put on your slouchy beanie and thick-framed glasses and have fun!

Mini Wallet Card Cases in Kraft-Tex | Sew4Home | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Somewhere between paper and felt lives a versatile and interesting substrate called Kraft-Tex – a paper product that washes, cuts, and sews like fabric, but looks and feels like leather as it softens and wears. Our friends at Fat Quarter Shop carry a full range of it in vibrate colors as well as muted naturals. They were generous enough to send us a Designer Sampler Pack with which to experiment … and play. And play we did. This stuff is fun! These Mini Wallet Card Cases are a fast and easy project and a great introduction to working with Kraft-Tex."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Great project for your Makerspace or Genius Hour. Excellent directions; the project materials will have some cost.

Two Ways to Add 'Computational Thinking' to Middle School Science - Inside School Research - Education Week

Two Ways to Add 'Computational Thinking' to Middle School Science - Inside School Research - Education Week | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
The Next Generation Science Standards call for science teachers to bring more "computational thinking" into middle school science. Two pilot projects at the American Educational Research Association meeting highlight why that's difficult, and two potential ways to do it.

Computational thinking draws on concepts from computer science—including organizing and analyzing data and modeling—to link science, technology, engineering, and math concepts and help students think about complex problems. As the use of technology and complex problem-solving becomes a bigger part of the workplace, education and business leaders alike have pushed for the concept to become a bigger part of STEM classes.

#Makerspace for Little or Nothing - Gwyneth Jones aka @thedaringlibrarian | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

You don't have to spend thousands of dollars to start a Makerspace area. You don't have to have a designated room or rip out bookcases. You can even have a Makerspace on a cart! When we have testing in our Library, I put all our Makerspace stuff on an AV cart and roll it into our server room.  This post evolved from a previous post called Makerspace Starter Kit Updated where I had some of these idea, but I felt that it deserved it's own expanded post.

You can take baby steps into the Maker Movement.  I've been saying that for 7 years or so....long before I blogged about it, I tried it out. Yeah, sometimes I try things on the sly to see if they are blogworthy for you! Now....having said that ..."

Our Second Annual Student Podcast Contest - The New York Times | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Imagine yourself — or, perhaps, you and your friends — as hosts of your own podcast. What would you talk about?

Maybe you’d tell a story, perhaps about a childhood memory, an experience that changed your life, or a bad romance. Or maybe you’d rather interview guests about a topic you’re exploring, whether a news-related issue like gun violence or gender roles, or a hobby, passion or concern of your own? Or, maybe you’d just like to have a conversation — about pop culture, sports, food, fashion, technology, politics, or, if you’re stuck, any of these 1,000-plus topics we’ve rounded up to inspire you.

In Our Second Annual Podcast Challenge, we invite teenagers to submit original work, of five minutes or less, by May 21 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Our favorites will then be featured on The Learning Network.

On March 2, a tech journalist posted a video he pulled from a Jibo Owners Facebook Group. It was heartbreaking to watch the little “social robot” announce that his servers were about to be shut down and he would not function any longer. He even thanked his human owners for having him around before he did a little goodbye dance. Many people responded to this tweet emotionally: Less than a month earlier, multiple articles that sounded more like obituaries described …

I’m sure that if you’ve seen my blog before you’ve seen that I have a bit of an obsession with cardboard. We seem to have a constant stream of Amazon or Wish parcels arriving at our house (nothing to do with me I’m sure), and with them comes lovely lovely cardboard! It never gets thrown as either the 7yo or myself save it for a weekend build. Some times this can be completely low tech, others we hack it up a bit! For this project we used a Microbit.

Herding pictures into sensible albums on the phone can be tedious if you bother at all, but here’s the good news: If you’ve been using the current versions of Google Photos on your Android or Apple device or Apple’s Photos for iOS, there’s a good chance that the apps have been organizing your images for you.

It can be a little unnerving to see how these apps have analyzed your pictures. But the software can save you hours and is simple to use. Here are ways to use the programs — and how to tweak them to adjust to your needs.

"Although some argue that kids and teens are harmlessly “overindulging” in technology, others are deeply concerned.

“Side effects” of excessive Internet use include:

      * Anxiety and depression
      * Low self-esteem
     * Sleep problems
     * Aggression
     * Obesity
     * Decreased focus and productivity


And according to a report by Common Sense Media, technology and media use is a “source of tension” in many families. Children report that their parents check devices too much, causing them to feel “unimportant.” Meanwhile, parents struggle with limiting their children’s use of media and technology."

Drones Take Flight on Campus for Teaching, Research and Administrative Tasks | EdTech Magazine

Drones Take Flight on Campus for Teaching, Research and Administrative Tasks | EdTech Magazine | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Ten years ago, seeing a drone zoom over a college campus would have been unusual, to say the least. Today, however, several institutions are using the technology to support learning, research and even administrative work, such as capturing footage for a marketing video.

Unmanned aerial vehicles have been in use since the 1990s, primarily to support military, border security and other public operations, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Consumer adoption began to accelerate a few years ago as hobby drones became more advanced and less expensive. From 2014 to 2017, consumer drone shipments jumped worldwide by 7 million units, according to a Business Insider Intelligence analysis.

That’s about when higher education institutions began to realize UAVs could play a role on campus, according to Venkata Krishnan Seshadri, industry lead at market research provider Technavio.

“Drones facilitate application-based, practical learning, which helps students understand and remember key theoretical concepts,” Seshadri says. “Using drones significantly reduces risks and costs. For instance, in archeological-related courses, drones are used to capture aerial imagery, which increases the quality of learning without safety issues.”
