“Students involved in maker and STEAM activities will see the invention process as a journey toward achievement or success…The journey begins with a call to adventure- a challenge that must be undertaken- that disrupts the comfort of the potential hero’s ordinary world.” ~Dr. Nettrice Gaskins, Techno-Vernacular Creativity and Innovation, p. 43.

Progress

“Of all the things that can boost emotions, motivation, and perceptions during a workday, the single most important is making progress in meaningful work. And the more frequently people experience that sense of progress, the more likely they are to be creatively productive in the long run. Whether they are trying to solve a major scientific mystery or simply produce a high-quality product or service, everyday progress — even a small win — can make all the difference in how they feel and perform.” ~Teresa M. Amabile and Steven J. Kramer, The progress principle: Using small wins to ignite joy, engagement, and creativity at work.

Best Field Trip Since 1969!

The Best Field Trip Since 1969!

On this day, 52 years ago, Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) and Buzz Aldrin (born 1930) landed on the Moon in the greatest engineering accomplishment of the 20th century!

Today, just outside dusty Van Horn, Texas a small team of private citizens blasted off in the Blue Origin rocket called the Alan Shepard. The rocket was named after Alan Shepard (1923-1998), the astronaut who, in 1961 became the first American and the second man to travel into space. Ten years later, Shepard also walked on the Moon.

Field Trips or Field Excursions have been a foundational component of educational and instructional practice . Two notable Critical Thinkers, Friedrich Froebel and John Dewey encouraged educational excursions (Woods, 1937). The Existentialist Henry David Thoreau and his brother John are considered to be the first teaching pair to include field excursions in their Concord curriculum circa 1839 (Lunsford, 2019).

 

The Blue Origin private citizens Jeff Bezos, Mercury 13 aviator Wally Funk, Mark Bezos, and Oliver Daemen became astronauts when they took an 11-minute field trip, including 3 minutes of weightlessness in the first Field Trip 66.5 miles (351, 210 feet) above Earth!

What are your thoughts on today’s flight?

Mistakes Maraboli

 

Sometimes adult learners, especially those in education do not accept assessment in the most constructive manner. It can be very difficult for those who are used to give assessment to receive assessment.
