Escondido Education Foundation Grant
The supplies that will be purchased with the EEF funds are far from “regular school supplies.” They are being used in the most innovative classrooms all over to teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) or STEAM (add Art). They also support “The Maker Movement” in which learning is integrated with 21st century projects requiring students to create, collaborate, communicate, and critically think.Team members were first exposed to “Sphero” and “Makey Makey” at a recent EdCamp San Diego event - an “unconference” (held at our district office last month) where like-minded educators from all over San Diego County came together to collaborate in innovative educational practices. These two products emerged as the best kid-friendly tools to introduce concepts of robotics and programming. The use of cardboard for prototyping proved to be a great way for students to produce innovative designs that address real-world problems during last year’s event. A team member’s recent visit to Vista Design and Innovation Academy (a nearby specialty magnet school), reaffirmed the power of basic prototyping using cardboard. The school utilizes “low-res” maker spaces to build cardboard prototypes before creating 3D-printed “high-res” models. The graduated design process allows students to learn from their mistakes and develop a growth mindset. Additional tools for cardboard-based prototyping (from the kit described above) will help students safely design strong, highly-functional invention prototypes. Also, they are re-usable, so they can support Innovation Day in subsequent years and be used in other classroom projects as well.

Oak Hill Otters Short and Tall Making a Difference!
Our 5th grade teachers and students planned, produced, and presented their project-based ideas during Innovation Day (May 9-13th, 2014) here at Oak Hill.  We had work stations set up for students to produce what they had planned, and teachers and staff from OH and the district office came to support the process and see  what we were up to!  Read the article about them here!
