Possible ideas for Maker Faire... Robotics?
I had an opportunity to play with the Lego Mindstorm kit at ISTE this year. I really enjoyed their product, and I would love to get it into the hands of my students! I'm debated exactly which product to delve into- I would love to hear what you are using! Leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter!
Today we had our district tech conference. I played with littleBits. I like that they are magnetic and $149 for a starter kit. I like and dislike that there is no software component; I think it is easier to use, but they aren't learning a software program like Scratch.
Steve Dembo (@teach42) was our Keynote today! He works for Discovery Education, and he is also a co-author (with Adam Bellow) of:
