What is a Makerspace? | Create, Collaborate, Innovate - 2 views

  •  
    "Making looks different at different types of makerspaces. However, schools, public libraries, and even artist collaboratives have some universal themes that tie us all together (and owning a 3D printer isn't one of them.)"

Educational Technology Guy: Guest Post - How to Create Stunning Visual Aids for your Le... - 8 views

  •  
    "It is a challenge to seize children's attention and not to let it go. Some teachers experience great difficulties in keeping students engaged and involved in the educational process due to objective reasons. Luckily, there exist some tricks to help resourceful teachers, one of them being visual aids. Looking at bright and colorful images, students are more likely to digest the material without boredom and remember it afterwards. But why are visual aids so effective and how to create them?
    First of all, visual aids are helpful, because they show the data visually. Some facts, connections and outcomes are much easier to understand when they are represented as a picture. For example, some statistics, shown as a diagram will be much more winning than its detailed descriptions in words. Then, as visual images have the sense of modernity, they easily grab children's attention for some time. Thus, they are useful for highlighting some essential points and setting true accents. And finally, visual aids and pictures boost children's creativity. By looking at something beautiful and challenging, by perceiving the right way of data organization, students can get inspired and come up with new and outstanding ideas. "

Kids need to create technology, not just use it | TEDx Innovations Blog - 0 views

  •  
    "TEDxOslo speaker Torgeir Waterhouse is on a crusade to make coding an integral part of students' early education, especially in his home country of Norway. "I'm driven by the fact and the knowledge and the hope and the dream that we can empower kids with technology," he says at the event. "Technology in the hands of the right people can change everything."

    Kids are those right people, he believes. "[Kids are] those people who will someday wake up and say, in the words of John Perry Barlow, 'I am from cyberspace … I am all about the future.'" A future, Waterhouse says, that will present new demands and challenges to this new generation, challenges that will very likely have to be tackled with technology.

    "If they are going to build that future for us," Waterhouse says, "they have to learn to code.""

How To Create QR Codes To Use In Your Classroom ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog - 1 views

  •  
    "A QR Code is a type of barcode that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text you want students to read, websites, or video.




    Ideas For The Classroom

    A very quick way to incorporate QR codes in your classroom is to simply create a QR code so students can get to a website quickly and efficiently.  How many times have you written a website on the board for your students to go to and you get 10 students saying that they can't get to the website because they have typed it incorrectly?

Create, Publish, Promote: An iPad Workflow For Learning - 1 views

  •  
    "Workflow is as much about inspiration and elegance as it is function and efficiency.

    Ideally a workflow for learning would promote curiosity and ambition as much as it supports students in accomplishing goals, turning in work, and other procedural events. Any workflow should also be aligned with the tools of the trade-in this case the hardware and software of an iPad.

    That's where Create, Publish, Promote comes in-three words that clarify a basic sequence that can realize the potential of mobile technology."
