  28. A1: Roy from central Texas - making for me includes creating lessons that allow my Ss to discover ideas on their own. #txeduchat
  29. @craigyen Which used to get me LOTs of trouble as a kid! I usually took it apart, not so much on the "back together" every time! #txeduchat
  30. Erika Lowery Lewisville ISD . Interested in this topic, may just be reading and learning unite #txeduchat

    A2: I have the privilege to teach on a campus w/weekly #geniushour My Ss are always making! #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/PxF9eUn8nQ
  40. A2 In our tech lounge we have a number of connectors, peripherals, A/V equipment, cameras, etc. so Ss can create digital media #txeduchat
  41. A2 I've used legos for lots of science and math ideas. #MakeyMakey @littleBits all great for #making and challenging Ss #txeduchat
  42. A2: I love making instructional materials-games, experiments.It’s fun, saves $$, models to students that they can do too #txeduchat
  43. A1: my AP Eng Lang Ss learn to make meaning out of complicated texts and grow through discovery. #txeduchat
  44. A2: this question seems so odd to me in art we create/make all things, I've been trying to wrap my brAin around maker vs creator? #txeduchat
  45. @FarleyJeffrey It is truly amazing what Ss come up with from random materials/items! Always amazes me! #txeduchat
  46. A1 writing a book, presenting to other leaders in big districts is making for me...going out on a limb! #txeduchat

  53. Q2: What have you done in your own teaching setting that you would consider making? #txeduchat #makered - getting some great responses
  54. Making is getting my hands dirty and trying stuff out...fails are a wonderful lesson #txeduchat
  55. Q2: giving students freedom to put their own spin over biomes. Some created "biodomes" others travel brochures. #txeduchat
  56. A2: Getting to watch one high school develop a Manufacturing/Business pathways for Ss - making from wood, metal, business.. #txeduchat
  57. @Tom_Kilgore We have not delved into it within that much detail yet. #txeduchat
  58. Q2.1 (teachable moment) Is there a difference between creating and making? #makered #txeduchat
  59. A2: Ss are constantly creating different ways of representing content. Can't wait for our Geology Jam raps/poems/songs tomorrow. #txeduchat
  60. #txeduchat Jena Ball, CritterKin author, illustrator & co-founder of the #NotPerfect Hat Club. Sorry to be late. What's our topic?
  61. @fiskeclass How do you think failure fits into the learning process for students? #txeduchat
  62. #txeduchat It takes dedicated, inspired educators who think outside the box and want to go the extra mile to enrich the Ss lives
  63. #txeduchat A2: My husband helps with our Mars Rover project each year. Totally making from start to finish!  http://marsrover.phys.uh.edu/about.php 
  64. #txeduchat Jena Ball, CritterKin author, illustrator & co-founder of the #NotPerfect Hat Club. Sorry to be late. What's our topic?
  65. A2: I often ask myself, who is the one presenting the material...myself or Ss? #txeduchat
  66. @jessahanson @jackiegerstein so in our curriculum we think big idea, there is a process of creation & a product #txeduchat
  67. @Tom_Kilgore #txeduchat Thank you, Tom. Yes, it takes a village. All of our yarn is donated and the local knitting guild volunteers!
  68. You can grow your PLN by following others in the chat tonight. #txeduchat
  69. Love to see all the maker discussion in #txeduchat tonight. Gotta get off my phone and find my laptop to follow along!
  70. @craigyen Thanks Craig, I want to get access to printer for my Ss. Will be writing every grant proposal possible for next year! #txeduchat
  71. @mjjohnson1216 We see dedicated, inspired educators on #txeduchat every Sunday night! We are so lucky...
  72. @GrundlerArt: @jackiegerstein guess that's my basic ? Are they different? #txeduchat” I think the creator is a higher standard, in my mind
  73. @fiskeclass #TXeduchat Agree!. Humans learn by trial & error so important to learn we're all #NotPerfect - both emotional & mental lessons.
  74. Share your classroom stories with us and we will publish them for all. See more information here:  http://txeduchat.com/classroom-stories/  #txeduchat
  75. Don't worry if #txeduchat is moving fast, we archive it for you every week and post at  http://txeduchat.com 
  76. A2 Creation is good, but doesn't have to end in something tangible. Making is putting rubber on the road and "making" it happen #txeduchat
  77. @Tom_Kilgore HUGE once failure is. Part of everyday life they are much freer to explore/reinvision #txeduchat
  78. @Hist_simulation #TXeduchat Won't load 4 me, but agree. Seen some amazing VW projects teach everything from fail to succeed to storytelling.
  79. A3) #1 challenge is letting go and allowing the learners to direct the learning and be messy. #txeduchat
  80. #txeduchat A1 Making means tangibly showing you get learning. Filling in a bubble-sheet or visual thinking (making)? Latter authentic.
  81. A2: I think of creation as putting the ideas together. Making is the tangible product. #txeduchat
  82. @Sahernandez8 Good point... their is value in the process of making. #txeduchat And reflecting upon that practice.
  83. @craigyen Teachers aren’t trained to let go of outcomes, that learning is messy and often unpredictable #txeduchat
  84. A3 strengths: focusing on process, weakness: making learning authentic, creating authentic audiences and sharing our story #txeduchat
  85. A3: I struggle with student motivation and I need to do a better job connecting them to experts. #txeduchat
  86. @craigyen My admin and I are having my students re-design our classroom. Not sure what to expect yet but learning will occur! #txeduchat
  87. #txeduchat A3: Must see imperfections and failures as beautiful opportunities. That's a new #mindset for me.
  88. Mark from IN - cross-curricula assignments that go beyond standards. #txeduchat
  89. @craigyen @jackiegerstein I think it's easiest giving ownership a little bit at a time. It's going to be a shift for Ss. #txeduchat
  90. A3 The educator should be a tour guide of learning possibilities-showing students the possibilities+then getting out of the way #txeduchat
  91. @craigyen Letting learners take control requires patience & skill. How do U direct self-directed learning? #txeduchat http://t.co/P5L2sxS2AY
    @craigyen Letting learners take control requires patience & skill. How do U direct self-directed learning? #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/P5L2sxS2AY
  92. @andreakornowski @jackiegerstein Truth. Some students have learned to play school so well.. want to be told what to do. #txeduchat
  93. @craigyen @jackiegerstein We weren't wired that way, and Ss aren't currently programmed that way. #txeduchat
  94. We have to start with teachers! Stop the sit and get PD. Let them drive their own learning and create #makerspace time for T's!! #txeduchat
  95. @whitneykilgore @jackiegerstein @robinwb. You all get the credit as the brains and braun. I have barely showed up for the party #txeduchat
  96. #txeduchat A2 Dunno. Good Q. Creating, maybe something new? Making, something from what was learned? Creating = new application of learning?
  97. @carr_8 I've read a a bit & I always see good arted, guess the diff is that other areas are taking it to next level, glad SteAm #txeduchat
  98. @craigyen @jackiegerstein #Txeduchat Sometimes the #NotPerfect moments yield totally unexpected results never would've seen following rules
  99. @Tom_Kilgore @craigyen Great to let them do it.. did the same in in 1969. Took our all the desks. Wish I had pictures. #txeduchat
  100. A3) My strength is creating a kind, compassionate climate. All others will be challenges for me :( #txeduchat
  101. A3: strengths: failure is okay and is part of the lrning prcss, Ss voice Weakness: creative on finding supplies, Ss PLC #txeduchat
  102. @JenaiaMorane @craigyen @jackiegerstein That is so true Jena, learning moments pop up and we have to let students run w/them! #txeduchat
  103. #txeduchat Marty Keltz Perfectly not perfectly late. Snuck in the back door.
  104. @MathPrincessC Creating a kind, compassionate climate of learning is such a great start for #makered #txeduchat
  105. @craigyen @Sahernandez8 #TXeduchat Yes! Reflection=important becuz teaches analysis versus data storage. Love 2 see where Ss go when reflect
  106. @martysnowpaw Marty - You are always welcome. Early, late, on Tuesdays.... :) #txeduchat
  107. A3: I think most teachers are strong in creating student-centered learning-sad if crippled by state or district testing regimen #txeduchat
  108. We need to remember that standards just hold the bar- raise the bar with your lessons and projects( frm HJ and track coach) #txeduchat
  109. @GrundlerArt @craigyen @andreakornowski We, as educators, should be lead learners, modeling how to learn anew;breaking old habits #txeduchat
  110. @GrundlerArt @craigyen @jackiegerstein Totally agree. Brain has to be retrained. I'm fairly new so ruts have not been formed. #txeduchat
  111. @martysnowpaw @craigyen It is so empowering for the students, it has been incredible to witness so far! @AndraPenny #txeduchat
  112. @MathPrincessC But that strength is an IMPORTANT one. Will make it easier to face any other "challenges" together as a team! #txeduchat
  113. @jackiegerstein @MathPrincessC and guiding Ss to a growth mindset to encourage struggling without worrying about failure. #txeduchat
  114. Q4: What is a goal you have to do some (more) #makered in your own classroom? #txeduchat
  115. @Tom_Kilgore @craigyen @jackiegerstein #TXeduchat LUV that concept - Run w/ideas - See thoughts galloping away like wild horses - wonderful.
  116. #txeduchat Glad I joined. Like being on Cheers, where everyone knows your name.
  117. #txeduchat A3 Strength: fearless (except for fire) integration of stuff. Challenge: I lack a class to lab-it with. Long wait between pilots.
  118. @carr_8 #txeduchat Think process is where real learning occurs.Results are icing. Love PBL in which Ss each play a role & support 1 another.
  119. A4 extend learning beyond the classroom walls! Cafe- restrooms- Hallways...every space #txeduchat
  120. A4: We have just rolled out #makerbot to our middle schools. They are all creating #makerclubs. Very excited about whats to come #txeduchat
  121. A4 we are starting a #makerspace after school program and will use some of the activities in class. share and watch ideas grow.#txeduchat
  122. Hey #txeduchat coming in late. Faige kinder teacher in Los Angeles
  123. @andreakornowski @craigyen @jackiegerstein speaking in regards to Ss. Craig nailed it, older kids have learned the A+ game #txeduchat
  124. A4) My goal is to redesign the classroom to have a makerspace in class and to allow for more time to create #txeduchat
  125. A4) Have students interact more amongst themselves and others before coming to me #txeduchat
  126. @carr_8 #Txeduchat Also one S's weakness is another's strength, Invaluable lessons in collaboration & teamwork there :-)
  127. A4: I'm wanting to create a #Makerspace classroom.Filled with tinkering gear and furniture geared towards creativity. #geniushour #txeduchat
  128. #txeduchat A4 I had thought of submitting a CUE Tip proposal for #cue15 but not having been to one before.. A little today out there atm.
  129. #txeduchat Speaking for the work of Ms Jenaia, encouraging kiddos to make quilts & murals. CritterKin is its own kind of PBL maker project.
  130. @GrundlerArt @craigyen @jackiegerstein It's totally right...we played that same game when we were in school. I'm guilty. #txeduchat
  131. #txeduchat A4 Probably doing a couple white papers for powers-that-be how to integrate maker/visual thinking in current project.
  132. A4: I need to offer Ss the opportunity to solve real world problems. #txeduchat
  133. Rob from East Lansing MI zooming in for the last half of #txeduchat
  134. Q5 (another teachable moment) I believe that #makered is more of a teacher mindset than about the stuff. Agree or disagree? #txeduchat
  135. A4: push Ss outside comfort zone & teach that failure leads to success, the process is important & should be balance w product #txeduchat
  136. Sorry so late #txeduchat but i assume better late than never. if i was a big shot i would say im fashionably late :)
  137. A5: I would agree. T shifts from owning all the learning to giving Ss opportunities to work with it and offer productive play. #txeduchat
  138. A4: Suggestion to begin #makered Start Small with 1 or 2 centers i.e. origami, afterschool club, @littleBits #geniushour #txeduchat
  139. @rondorland welcome & Q4: What is a goal you have to do some (more) #makered in your own classroom? #txeduchat
  140. A5) Agree. It is very much so a teacher mindset. Shift the learning and exploring to the student. #txeduchat
  141. A4) My goal is to hv more class time for Ss to create and hv Ss start creating their own PLC outside of our class/school. #txeduchat
  142. A5 agree. Ts have to decide to teach what is best for kids rather than what to teach to prepare for a test. Mindset matters #txeduchat
  143. What's that saying 'ask3 then me' @MathPrincessC "Have students interact more amongst themselves and others before coming to me" #txeduchat
  144. @craigyen and utilize Ss to find resources. T isn't holder of all knowledge. #txeduchat
  145. A3: The goal of my library MakerSpace is to have students take on the leadership/teaching role. Less focus on me, more on them. #txeduchat
  146. A5: Maker education is more philosophy & environment where students feel safe to make/create/learn in my opinion, not "stuff" #txeduchat
  147. to allow kids more opportunities to express themselves. #txeduchat
  148. @andreakornowski Great point. Put all the items and resources at their disposal and let them lead. #txeduchat
  149. @Tom_Kilgore I would add taking risks and experiencing failure in the process too. #txeduchat
  150. A5 Def a T mindset. But one we have 2 work at IF we haven't had a lot of "constructivistic opportunity" ourselves. New ball game #txeduchat
  151. @ChrisSullivanNZ #txeduchat You got that right... Went to NZ in 2000. Loved it & loved the people..
  152. #txeduchat A5: It's a #mindset switch to give students voice and choice and get out of their way. That seems to align with #makered vision.
  153. @craigyen And collect the treasures of what they find along the way. #txeduchat Ss are constantly emailing me things they find.
  154. @rsvoigt Many educators claim a constructivist philosophy, which I believe is important for #makered - but how many practice it #txeduchat
  155. A5) Agree.. It is a Ts mindset and allowing Ss to take learning into their own hands. #txeduchat
  156. @jackiegerstein agree! It's not the stuff. If you don't allow for the process you won't move forward #txeduchat
  157. A5: I think T more important than #makered stuff in creating student-driven learning environment: T sets the stage #txeduchat
  158. Share your classroom stories and we will publish them for all. See more information here:  http://txeduchat.com/classroom-stories/  #txeduchat
  159. @BarbaraGruener That and personalized learning. How can we pull Ss passions into it? #txeduchat
  160. @andreakornowski Most definitely! Failure means learning is occurring & Ss benefit from trying/working/re-thinking/trying again! #txeduchat
  161. @Tom_Kilgore #txeduchat Its never the stuff. Never the tech. Teachers just letting the kiddos find their way with encouragement & trust.
  162. It can be both! MT @jackiegerstein: Q5 I believe that #makered is more of a teacher mindset than about the stuff. Agree/disagree? #txeduchat
  163. A6- well its new to all, and new things make us uncomfortable. #justletithappen #txeduchat
  164. Would be great for #txeduchat participants to stay on with us at #bcedchat to discuss Summative assessment at 7pm PST! :)
  165. A5 Agree bc the drive/interest/curiosity is already there in kids. We have to nurture it & make sure it survives as they grow #txeduchat
  166. @MrBartmas #Txeduchat Think of school walls as transparent. How 2 apply learning 2 RL & invite community in to share RL applications?
  167. @andreakornowski #txeduchat We create relationships, then tap into their passions so they naturally ooze enthusiasm and verve. Win-win!
  168. @andreakornowski real world problems are key, get away from textbooks and set curriculum. World is the curriculum, &life the text #txeduchat
  169. Q6: What obstacles will you face implementing #makered & how will you overcome them? #txeduchat
  170. A5 #txeduchat Agree. #makered Ts use what they have at that moment to do whatever is needed for the success of the Ss.
  171. A5: Reminds me of that quote--lighting fire vs. filling pail. Maker mindset lights that fire! #txeduchat
  172. A5: There is no idea famine or deficiency in courage, but a need for someone to push you to act on the courage inside of you. #txeduchat
  173. A6) Biggest obstacle is that of time. Figuring out how to connect #makered with curricular demands. #txeduchat
  174. #txeduchat A5 Maker Ed is an attitude, a fervent belief learning should be seen with whatever materials are at hand. #DesignThinking
  175. A6: Shift in Ss driving their learning. This is uncomfortable for many Ss. #txeduchat
  176. @carr_8 #TXeduchat Had great success w/projects that teach emotional as well as intellectual skills w/Ss collaborating 2 help animals.
  177. A6- fitting it in the joke of our fixed schedules. forget times slots. #txeduchat
  178. @Sahernandez8 exactly. Ts hold the space for the Ss to find their inner voice thru whatever means you provide for them #txeduchat

  180. Grow your PLN by following others in #txeduchat tonight. This is YOUR community.
  181. A6) Resistance from Ss who are used to the old learning style. "Gimme the Ans!" Being ok with losing control of my room. #txeduchat
  182. #txeduchat A6 In adult ed the multiple-choice checkbox, radio button rule. Change is happening but maker ed has a ways to go.
  183. @craigyen: A6) Biggest obstacle is that of time. Figuring out how to connect #makered with curricular demands. #txeduchat” Yes!
  184. @Sahernandez8 #txeduchat Trust intrinsic motivation, no need for punishments or even rewards. Throw out grades & test scores..
  185. congrats #txeduchat on your nomination. still perplexed why my #7thchat never made it :p
  186. @MathPrincessC Agreed. Traditional grading also favors 1 answer. Ss need to be shown that open = freedom. #txeduchat
  187. #txeduchat A6 I can hear my next customer saying, "Ok, just *when* will learners find the time to make?"
  188. A6 Convincing others that S-centered discovery learning is equally as important as CCSS. #txeduchat
  189. A6:"If it's not on STAAR, it's not important" - all anyone cares about is bowing down to data charts! Creativity? Who needs that? #txeduchat
  190. A5 #txeduchat a5 Yes part of #GrowthMindset It's not the #makerspace of the room but "making room in you mind" 4another way 2teach
  191. A6 The 1st obstacle is undoing the mindset of St after soooo many yrs of T directed learning. Biggest is only your own hesitancy #txeduchat
  192. A6- time will always be an issue if set blocks and learning outcomes are present. #txeduchat give more autonomy and kids flourish.
  193. @ProgresivTeachr @andreakornowski #TXeduchat AMEN. Not sure when decided edu=sitting & using brain 2 store facts but not best use of mind.
  194. 18 yr old learning plasma cutter #makered #txeduchat Give them  tools, will create & build it. Cert can earn $75K http://t.co/kkOXgIHsqa

    Q6 The MESS! I just got home from vacuuming up the static foam (see counter) from this brain operation! #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/emSfbJqQ9q
  196. @craigyen And next comes fitting in a mostly unpredictable maker period(s) to your pacing schedule! (If you have one.) #txeduchat
  197. MakerEd builds Confidence! What we must ALWAYS remember as Teachers, Educators, & as #Education leaders!  http://ow.ly/i/7JtwJ  #txeduchat
  198. @BarbaraGruener @andreakornowski #TXeduchat LOL picture your Ss oozing green & purple passion slime-Fun! And I agree -know & care about Ss.
  199. @rsvoigt That rocks Robert! Had life size models of human brain and knee last year from my amazing students! #txeduchat
  200. Don't worry if #txeduchat is moving fast, we archive it for you every week and post at  http://txeduchat.com 
  201. A6 #txeduchat school culture, admin/parents on board, teachers as risk takers. List goes on Sts learning to learn & not for the test/grade
  202. A6: Create time. Education was built for the factory: replication and predictability. We have to redesign the system.  #txeduchat
