Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom

Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom

Sylvia Libow Martinez, Gary S. Stager

Price: FREE

This book is a great discussion and guide about why getting kids to become creators is so critical to their understanding of science, math and engineering. Gary and Sylvia call on their decades of experience with kids to give educators and parents a foundation for how inventing and “making” can unlock new learning, then guide them with ideas to implement great ideas into a classroom or home. I am honored to have my classroom example included in their book.

Join the maker movement!

There’s a technological and creative revolution underway. Amazing new tools, materials and skills turn us all into makers. Using technology to make, repair or customize the things we need brings engineering, design and computer science to the masses. Fortunately for educators, this maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing. The active learner is at the center of the learning process, amplifying the best traditions of progressive education. This book helps educators bring the exciting opportunities of the maker movement to every classroom.

Children are natural tinkerers
Their seminal learning experiences come through direct experience with materials. Digital fabrication, such as 3D printing and physical computing, including Arduino, MaKey MaKey and Raspberry Pi, expands a child’s toy and toolboxes with new ways to make things and new things to make. For the first time ever, childhood inventions may be printed, programmed or imbued with interactivity. Recycled materials can be brought back to life.

While school traditionally separates art and science, theory and practice, such divisions are artificial. The real world just doesn’t work that way! Architects are artists. Craftsmen deal in aesthetics, tradition and mathematical precision. Video game developers rely on computer science. Engineering and industrial design are inseparable. The finest scientists are often accomplished musicians. The maker community brings children, hobbyists and professionals together in a glorious celebration of personal expression with a modern flare.

When 3-D printing, precision cutting, microcomputer control, robotics and computer programming become integral to the art studio, auto shop or physics lab, every student needs access to tools, knowledge and problem solving skills. The maker movement not only blurs the artificial boundaries between subject areas, it erases distinctions between art and science while most importantly obliterating the crippling practice of tracking students in academic pursuits or vocational training. There are now multiple pathways to learning what we have always taught and things to do that were unimaginable just a few years ago.

Making for every classroom budget
Even if you don’t have access to expensive (but increasingly affordable) hardware, every classroom can become a makerspace where kids and teachers learn together through direct experience with an assortment of high and low-tech materials. The potential range, breadth, power, complexity and beauty of projects has never been greater thanks to the amazing new tools, materials, ingenuity and playfulness you will encounter in this book.

In this practical guide, Sylvia Martinez and Gary Stager provide K-12 educators with the how, why, and cool stuff that supports classroom making.

Stress, Belly Fat and Adrenal Fatigue

Stress, Belly Fat and Adrenal Fatigue

Ross Craft

Price: FREE

I find this BOOK very informative I understand how my body reacts to stress, by causing weight gain, now I know the importance of recognizing and finding ways of relieving stress as well as dieting.

Bertha

“Stress, Belly Fat and Adrenal Fatigue” is a discussion of
how the ever increasing pace of the modern lifestyles increases daily stress
and how that stress results in increased belly fat.

Do any of these sound familiar to you?
Weight gain, especially around your belly, with extreme difficulty in losing it
Morning fatigue from yesterdays stress
Sleepiness around 9PM but a second burst of energy about 11pm to 1am.
Prolonged stress can cause decreased sex drive, lack of energy and lack of focus and concentration.
If you are getting belly fat and you have the above symptoms you could be experiencing adrenal fatigue.

We live in a stressful age when too little time competes
with too much information. Our bodies
were built for the more leisurely pace of yesteryear. The result is often stress that taxes the function
of the adrenal system, causing an overabundance of belly fat producing hormones.

Most of us find it almost impossible to change our
lifestyles, but it is possible to increase our stress tolerance ability with
proper diet, exercise and state of the art stress releasing techniques.

Instead of fighting that stubborn belly fat, we can learn
how to prevent its production in the first place and control the effects of
stress on our bodies.

“Stress, Belly Fat and Adrenal Fatigue” will give you
information on how to recognize the bodily effects of prolonged stress,
identify fat releasing foods to help you with diet changes and a discussion of
state of the art stress management techniques.

Setting Boundaries® with Food

Setting Boundaries® with Food

Allison Bottke

I recommend you get SETTING BOUNDARIES WITH FOOD but don’t allow this book to go unread on your bookshelf as one more weight loss product. Instead, read it carefully and take action on the wise counsel in its pages. If you do, then you will regain control of this important area of life.

W. Terry Whalin

For the fourth book in her popular Setting Boundaries™ series, Allison Bottke turns to our relationship with food, and a problem that affects more than 200 million Americans (68 percent of the adult population)—obesity.

Setting Boundaries® with Food is a very personal book for Allison. She knows from personal experience about the struggle against obesity—feeling trapped in a seemingly never-ending cycle of dieting, deprivation, and despair. At one time in her life, Allison’s scale hit the 300-pound mark. Her overweight status resulted in Allison being the first full-figure model ever signed by the prestigious Wilhelmina modeling agency, where she worked for some of the biggest names in fashion, such as Gloria Vanderbilt and Alfred Angelo.

From her struggle, Allison offers more than just hope for the future. By introducing readers to her popular S.A.N.I.T.Y. steps, she encourages readers to turn away from the insanity of dieting and deprivation and to focus instead on establishing healthy relationships with food, self, others, and God. Her words will strike a chord with millions who have struggled for years to lose weight as they are encouraged to examine the emotional and spiritual aspects of their bondage to food and obsession with weight.
