Sarah Brown Wessling uses the stand-up game to encourage active participation. She asks all the students in her classroom to stand up. They are only allowed to sit down once they have participated in the discussion or share out. Sarah says this game is great for engaging tired students.

5 ways to use makerspaces to support personalized learning

5 ways to use makerspaces to support personalized learning | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it
At this stage of the edtech revolution, most educators are focused on using tech to enhance lessons rather than on the tech itself. But many times, tech is only integrated at specific points in the classroom or with a specific tool as determined by the teacher. At St. Albans City School in Vermont, SETDA’s 2018 Student Voices Award Winner, educators encourage the students to find places in their everyday work to incorporate digital resources, especially from their makerspace. In the edWebinar “Students Leverage Technology Tools and Makerspaces to Personalize Learning,” Grace Borst, innovation specialist at St. Albans City School, and several of her students explained how they’re using technology for assessment, service work, and more.

St. Albans City School has a dedicated makerspace open to all students from preK-8. In addition to class assignments in the space, open lab time is also available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students use this time for school and personal projects where tech might not be required but could add value. Although they miss class for open lab, the teachers recognize the benefits of letting students explore technology to help them achieve their personal and educational goals.

Here are some examples the student presenters shared about how they’ve used technology at St. Albans.

Social Leadership: Renewal and Loss

Social Leadership: Renewal and Loss | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it
Social Leadership represents a systemic approach, leadership within an ecosystem. But not leadership through hierarchy, formal authority, and sanction, but rather leadership through permission, consensus, and complex collaboration. It is not an alternative to more formal styles, but rather a compliment to them: the likelihood is that you need both. Formal power, which plays within…

10 Keys To Cognitive Flexibility | Problem Solving | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it
While this definition, and these strategies, tend to frame “flexible” thought as a departure from one’s normal way of thinking, a more comprehensive definition might account for the efficiency of that normal way of thinking as well: how flexibly can we engage various parts of our brain to respond to a task, whether or not the task requires us to think “differently”?

The Most Productive Thing You Can Do With 10 Free Minutes Alone

Deep work happens in focus mode, but it is quite taxing. Sooner or later you need to let your mind relax again. Not only does this rest allow you to be more effective with your next focused session, it also allows you to be more creative as it gives your mind time to make connections that you miss while in focus mode.

Can Robotics Teach Problem Solving to Students?

Can Robotics Teach Problem Solving to Students? | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it

"Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are essential to success at university and in later life. However, the traditional classroom model has done a poor job of imparting these skills to students. The way children have learned in the classroom for generations has focused on lectures and worksheets. Past generations would depend on group sports, clubs and teenage jobs to impart these vital skills onto students."

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, January 1, 12:04 PM

“A December 2015 report published by Taylor & Francis Online, explored the efficacy of teaching problem solving before programming in Robotics. The study group found the course rated highly for student satisfaction, over 92%. It was suggested that further exploration of problem-solving skills would garner better results. Thus cementing the idea that Robotics and problem solving are co-dependent of each other.“
