Kickstart a Kids' Makerspace | Make: DIY Projects, How-Tos, Electronics, Crafts and Ide... - 0 views

  •  
    "Just eight years ago, in MAKE Volume 03, Saul Griffith provided a detailed list of "The Maker's Ultimate Tools" that would allow a maker to "make pretty much anything." Unfortunately, only a real-life Tony Stark could afford every item on that list, which included a $1,000,000 excimer laser cutter, a $150,000 NC (numerically controlled) lathe, and a $100,000 water jet.

    Fortunately for kids today, prices have dropped, tools have become easier to obtain (and use), and fundraising has never been simpler. Let's take a look at what tools, options, and pricesare a good fit for a kid-focused makerspace, and how schools and other organizations can achieve funding to get more of these kids into the workshop and making things."

Year One With a 3D Printer: 17 Tips | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    "The 3D printing industry is expected to exceed $21 billion by 2020. Classrooms are joining in. Kelly Hines' fifth-grade classroom is redesigning a prosthetic hand. Can't buy a drone? Soon, you may be able to print one. You can print robots, math manipulatives, and even parts for a 3D printer. (In fact, Bryan Byer's science classroom in Michigan built their own 3D printer.)

    What will happen when we can 3D print things from door stoppers to wind turbines to (wait for it) wedding dresses? This past year, my students and I began our journey after I saw the FabLab at Kentucky Country Day School last summer."

  •  
    "As a society, we are more interconnected than ever before. This makes it necessary to raise children to be aware of-and sensitive to-the different cultures, traditions, and perspectives from around the globe. We call this having "global awareness."

    A broadening understanding of such perspectives and their economic, environmental, political and social components helps foster better communication skills in our children.

    You'll find that global awareness is an intrinsic part of Global Digital Citizenship.

    Here are 10 child-friendly apps available on the market today that help promote better global awareness in our youth."

20 Best Apps for Toddlers - My Bored Toddler - 1 views

  •  
    "Are you looking for the best apps for toddlers? We have found some of the best toddler apps - all tested on my very own toddlers!

    I don't advocate letting your toddler spend a lot of time playing apps on tablets and phones, but as an educator and parent, I can definitely see the value in supervised play with some of the fantastic educational apps that are available. The biggest problem is finding the best apps for toddlers among the thousands, if not millions of toddler apps out there.

    After being overwhelmed with the options available (a large percentage of which were low quality, filled with ads or had very little educational value), I recently asked for YOUR favorite toddler apps. You can read the responses to that thread here . There were several apps that were recommended many times, along with some great new suggestions. After having a closer look at your recommendations I have compiled a list of Apps your toddler will love!

    You will notice that the list contains a mix of free and paid apps. While I could have focused on only the free apps, I feel that there are some excellent toddler apps that are worth paying a few dollars for (especially if it means no adds and excellent content)."
