Capture Screenshots at Defined Time Intervals Automatically Screenshots are part of our daily routine as tech support professionals. There is no better way to explain to someone how to do something from a distance than through a mixture of both words and visuals, and since we cannot always make a video, screenshots are the next best thing. However, there are times when individually capturing and saving multiple screenshots grows tedious. During those times when you need to capture and save many screenshots in a row, it is helpful to have an application that automates the process.
There Was A Whole Lot Of "Making" Going On At The #TIES14 Conference In Minneapolis This Week! From the minute we walked into to see Make It Happen....Transforming Pedagogy with Technology we knew this was going to be an amazing experience with so many wonderful educators from Minnesota and other parts of the world. It was a lot of fun speaking with these school district leaders and helping them understand the importance of and impact that Makerspaces can have within our schools and communities. When I went back in the afternoon I was excited to see what they had been creating and tinkering with throughout the day. I know they really enjoyed this time together making.

Meet Debbie Sterling - GoldieBlox founder At GoldieBlox, our goal is to get girls building. We’re here to help level the playing field in every sense of the phrase. By tapping into girls' strong verbal skills, our story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things. In a world where men largely outnumber women in science, technology, engineering and math, girls lose interest in these subjects as early as age 8.
The 10 Best STEM Resources By Phil Nast, retired middle school teacher and freelance writer Found In: mathematics, science, preK-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 Curriculum Resources Exploratorium Provides interactives, web features, activities, programs, and events for K-12. Educator Innovator Following Hack Your Notebook Day, a nationwide paper circuitry and applied STEM learning event held this summer that brought together makers from around the country, libraries and other connected learning spaces have continued “hacking” notebooks by holding independent events for diverse groups of learners around the country. In August, a group of teens gathered at the San Francisco Public Library, a member of the YouMedia network, to do some electrical engineering. But they probably didn’t realize that’s what they were doing. If they had they might have been too intimidated to sign up for the program. After a short video orientation, the students—five girls and five boys—were drawing and illuminating text and images in their notebooks using copper tape, conductive thread, 3-volt coin batteries, and LED lights.
