Teaching class with Pinterest

A great idea to bring visuals into the classroom, from the Pinterest blog:

Not only are these Pinners sharing their knowledge and talents with other people, but they’re also using Pinterest as part of their classes 다운로드. The teachers will be using their boards for everything from lesson plans, organizing class inspiration, showing off the results of projects (very useful for online education), class collaboration, and saving ideas for future classes 마이크로소프트 공식. Because Pinterest is so strong in the Maker/Crafter community there is even a class on Pinning With Purpose: Telling Your Story On Pinterest 딩동뉴스 다운로드!

 

For the DIY/Maker crowd, Skillshare has a craft semester that looks fun 리눅스 rpm 패키지.

Shaper Studios – create your own surfboard at the first-of-its-kind DIY studio

From the first board-shaping school.

The art of hand-shaping surfboards is being threatened by machines. Shaper Studios is changing that 다운로드. The Mission Valley shaping school is allowing everyday surfers the chance to glass and paint what they ride. We drop in on owner Chris Clark, who says the studio is luring everyone from pros to groms to surf companies and bands like Foster the People 다운로드.

“It’s impossible to compare surfboard shaping to anything else,” says Clark, an SDSU MBA grad student and entrepreneur who is creating a unique blend of retail and DIY manufacturing at Shaper Studios 다운로드.

“Surfing is only half of surfing. The other half is making your own surfboard. When people leave here with a board they can ride, that they make with their own hands, it changes surfing and their experience with the sport forever.”

But what about people who are power-tool-phobic 안드로이드 인터넷 동영상 다운로드?

We are with you the whole time. We just taught a 12-year-old girl to use a planer (a power tool with sharp blades).

So it’s not just a bro-fest 다운로드?

No way! We just did a series with French pro Margaux Arramon-Tucoo. We entered a film of her shaping at a local film fest.

Surfboards are some of the most toxic toys 눈이부시게 8화.

We use Marko recyclable EPS foam. We also use epoxy resins, which are odorless and have zero VOCs. It doesn’t smell in here so you can even glass your board without wearinga mask 삼국지 시리즈 다운로드.

DIY: build your own Battlestar Galactica space flight simulator

Six families of makers from the Bay Area are working on building a fully-operational motion controlled flight simulator based on the fighter ship from Battlestar Galactica 다운로드.

Using the fuselage of a small plane, the team has already built a motion platform that rotates a full dizzying 360 degrees in both the pitch and roll axes 다운로드. They’re still a ways away from finishing the project, including furnishing the interior of the cockpit to look like the ship from the show, and programming the open source flight simulator software to work with their rig 싱글리니지 다운로드.

The goal is to finish The Viper by this year’s Bay Area Maker Faire on May 19th 다운로드.

The project is even more impressive when you consider that the team that’s building it mostly consists of middle and high school students, with some help from their parents and mentors 다운로드.

You can learn more about all this by visiting the project home, The Viper, or through the Kickstarter fundraising project 다운로드. Oh, and check out my favorite part of the whole thing, the test model built using legos…I would love to see NASA doing that 🙂

iPads for every kindergartener – early results show a positive trend

This is the nation’s first public school district to give every kindergartener an iPad. And the implementation was done very carefully, with the research component built in from the start, not added as an after-thought 세븐틴 어쩌나 다운로드.

This fall, the district randomly selected 8 of its 16 kindergarten classes to receive iPads. There’s been ongoing professional development to help the teachers incorporate the devices into literacy instruction 다운로드.

In December, iPads were rolled out to the rest of the classes. Assessments of all students’ literacy were made at the beginning of the year and again in December 도라에몽 극장판 다운로드.
