    This is a great website that I have shared with 5th and 6th grade students. It is a physics game where students have to build a contraption that can reach a goal. It is surprisingly hard and it helps develop creativity and problem-solving skills in kids and adults alike!

    Awesome idea to use with early kiddos. Not only would it save on glue and glue sticks, this would definitely help with some of my students with difficulties with their fine motor skills.

Caught Up in Curiosity: Genius Hour in the Kindergarten Classroom - 3 views

  •  
    My 5th class started doing Genius Hour this year. It has been a hit so far and the kids are so engaged! Students research and learn about topics that interest them. Throughout the process, they get to decide how they want to present their learning. They must present their project in a creative way to their peers to showcase their work. This is a great article demonstrating that it can even be done in kindergarten too!

Bringing STREAM Into the Classroom - Education Database - ProQuest - 1 views

  • We have created pollinators during our plant unit, Mars Rovers during our solar system unit, solar ovens during our energy unit, 3D printed solutions to a problem, and coded robots to send messages to each other.
  • I try to integrate it as a set of interwoven ideas and concepts throughout my lessons, and not just one isolated activity.
  • As long as you tie in at least two or three components of STREAM into a lesson, it automatically raises student interest

    This is an interesting article about how one school changed from a STEM emphasis to a STREAM emphasis. In the article four teachers discuss how they approached this transition. The teachers also describe how student engagement has increased and they are challenging the students in new ways. Students are challenged in these activities to be very creative and think outside the box. These teachers have very creative ideas and have great insight into integrating STREAM into any classroom.

    Wow. Dance this around the pontoon boat with your friends and family. Think we need to develop any regulatory oversight for stuff like this or should we just keep letting it be up to corporate interest and individual choices? The need for new ethical, policy, and curricular responses to the digital technologies emerging around us is clear. Let's stick together teachers and help each other figure this next era out!
