The Works Museum offers teachers three lesson plans and two Powerpoint presentations that can be used before and after a class visit to the museum, each focusing on the engineering design process.

Overview This lesson consists of two simple activities aimed at introducing students to the engineering design process and involving them in creative problem solving. Standards Minnesota Science – Grade Six The Nature of Science and Engineering Apply and document an engineering design process that includes identifying criteria and constraints, making representations, testing and evaluation, and refining the design as needed to construct a product or system that solves a problem. Activity 1: The Engineering Design Process On the first page of the worksheet, the students are presented with a chart of the engineering design process.

To grow and innovate, organizations have to come up with creative ideas. At the employee level, creativity results from a combination of expertise, motivation, and thinking skills. At the team level, it results from the synergy between team members, which allows the group to produce something greater than the sum of its parts. The most widely used method to spark group creativity is brainstorming, a technique first introduced by Alex Osborn, a real life “Mad Man,” in the 1950s.

Brainstorming is based on four rules: (a) generate as many ideas as possible; (b) prioritize unusual or original ideas; (c) combine and refine the ideas generated; and (d) abstain from criticism during the exercise. The process, which should be informal and unstructured, is based on two old psychological premises. First, that the mere presence of others can have motivating effects on an individual’s performance. But why doesn’t brainstorming work? There are two main reasons. Build to Learn: Why You Should Make Things Just for the Experience.

International Baccalaureate - MYP Design Cycle. The MYP design cycle is a system that will help you do yourwork by following certain steps. The system is useful and easy to understandbecause it guides you through the steps of how to do your project. The Design cycle starts with anINVESTIGATION and follows with PLAN/DESIGN, CREATE and then EVALUATE. Investigate Stage: The investigation requires adescription of the problem and an explanation on why the problem is important.The student must also relate the problem to their own life, to society and toone or more areas of interaction (A.O.I.'s). In addition to this, students willwant to generate a couple of questions to guide them through theirinvestigation.

Design Stage: In this stage, the student should include a variety ofdesigns. Plan Stage: The requirements of the plan stage could include thecreation of a time line or a calendar. Evaluate Stage: Finally, the student should include the feedbackreceived from testers in their evaluation. The Nature of Constructionist Learning | Media Arts and Sciences.

This following text was taken from a post by Robert Ferguson on the GeekDad community blog. Two years ago, GeekDad’s Jenny Williams reviewed Lego’s WeDo Robotics Construction Set for children (the review is still an excellent introduction).

I’ve been itching to get one ever since, and I finally pulled the trigger when my oldest child appeared ready for it. After spending a lot of time with the product, I thought it time to visit WeDo again. In part 1, I review the pros and cons of buying WeDo and look at Lego’s recent addition to system, the WeDo Resource Set. In part 2, I look at what has been happening in the WeDo user community, and use MIT’s Scratch software to control WeDo.

Is WeDo Worth It? You can think of Lego WeDo as a junior Mindstorms. Purchasing both the WeDo Set and Software will set you back over $200 with shipping and tax, enough to make most parents scratch their heads and wonder whether it is worth it. In all, I think WeDo is worth it. Potential Shortcomings Extending WeDo. HCOS: Heritage Christian Online School.

Free LEGO Printables and 70+ LEGO Learning Activities. My kids had lots of LEGOS when they were growing up. I always thought LEGOS were great for logic, architectural skills, problem-solving skills, and collaborative experiences, although we didn’t use them for focused learning activities. Now there are LOTS of amazing activities online for using LEGOS specifically for hands-on learning activities. I love LEGO learning activities any time, but I really appreciate them in the summer as an interest-led way to prevent “summer brain drain.” Today, I want to share some of those amazing activities.

These aren’t all necessarily Montessori-inspired activities, but you can always add an activity to an activity tray or table and color code your activity to fit with traditional Montessori colors if you wish.

Holbrook, Susan D / First Grade Sight Words. Into the Book: Teaching Reading Comprehension Strategies. Concise Learning ™ - Concise Learning Method. With all the negative headlines about the current plight of education, it’s easy to get depressed and discouraged. Inadequate learning is undoubtedly the biggest obstacle to student success. Learning is a central human activity and has important implications for school, career, and life.

It is the foundation for success in and enjoyment of life. Now consider this: in all of your years of attending school, did anyone ever teach you how to learn? Probably not. If you’re like most students, you’re probably overwhelmed with information and, as a result, feel confused, unsure where to begin, and out of control. With CLM, you can regain control of your learning. The 5Ps — the five phases of learning — and the 4 steps within each of the 5Ps guide your thought processes as you’re learning.
