What Are Your Ideas For Incorporating the "Maker Movement" In Teaching Englis... - 0 views

  •  
    "The best way to activate your classroom is for your students to make something. This might an amazing high-tech invention or it might take the form of costumes for a historical reenactment, homemade math manipulatives, a new curtain for the local auditorium, toys, a pet habitat, a messy science experiment, or a zillion other things. Best of all, you don't need expensive hardware, or to start by mastering a programming language. You can begin with found materials: buttons, bottle caps, string, clay, construction paper, broken toys, popsicle sticks, or tape (hint: Google "tapigami" or "duck tape projects").
    What are you having your students "make" to help them learn English?"

Books Origami Sculptures - Fubiz Media - 0 views

  •  
    "English artist Nicola Nobo creates particular origami artworks. In fact he curves book pages to make impressive sculptures when we look it in front. The precision of foldings is offering creations that seem to be cut or sculpted. But this work didn't need any paper transformation, except the folding."

Launching Boats: Learning through play | FabLearn Fellows - 0 views

  •  
    "Children learn through play and exploration. From floating sticks downstream to ducks in the tub, early lessons in how the world works come from play.  By building upon play, a mode of learning that is rooted in curiosity and joy, we can engage our students in a truly authentic way.
    For instance, a project involving electronics can be launched with a session with circuit boards, or wood working with a one-block challenge. Both of these activities originate from two of my favorite resources for exploration-based maker activities: the Tinkering Studio at the Exploratorium, and the Makerspace at the New York Hall of Science. "
