SciGirls is an Emmy Award winning @PBSKids tv show + website + outreach program with a goal to change how girls think about #STEM. Made by @tpt.

They have been making LRNG https://twitter.com/wearelrng playlists, XPs, and Badges a DML Competition 6: Playlists for Learning https://www.hastac.org/competitions/winners/scigirls-code

Join Sarah Carter https://twitter.com/skcarter, Heather Benedict https://twitter.com/technovinci, Katie Hessen, https://twitter.com/katecmoritz, Joan Freese https://twitter.com/SciGirls, and Jill Arrigoni, https://twitter.com/jillarrigoni on this week's Teachers Teaching Teachers http://edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9pm ET/6pm PT. (See more here: http://national.tpt.org/about/scigirls-staff/ and https://www.hastac.org/blogs/joan-freese/2017/01/04/scigirls-code-designing-cs-playlists-girls

This project will develop four playlists leveraging digital badges that focus on e-textiles and wearable tech; robotics; mobile geospatial technologies; and computational thinking. These playlists will increase girls’ exposure to different aspects of computer science; share how the coding process is used to solve problems; provide confidence-building opportunities to design, code, and debug their own computer science projects; and connect girls with female computer science role models.

Over the past year, our project team has been determining specific technologies to use in each strand of the project, while also creating a curriculum that features unplugged activities to support computational thinking and tech-focused activities in robotics, e-textiles, and mobile apps. The technologies girls will use include: Oxobot, Sphero, Hummingbird (robotics), LilyPad (e-textiles), App Inventor and Tale Blazer (mobile Apps).

Come learn more about their amazing work!

Dawn and the other teachers at RCWP have been building +LRNG playlists, XPs, and badges since the fall, and in March they sponsored three Saturday events where they invited youth to Keep Your Voices LOUD! https://goo.gl/QB8nLq

We will have a discussion about their March spring roll out series using LRNG https://lrng.org/o/youth-voices and Youth Voices https://youthvoices.live They will share some of their reflections and student responses.

Join us in this conversation about the work we've been doing as part of a DML 6 Grant, "Sandboxes for Learning" https://www.hastac.org/competitions/winners/sandboxes-learning
We'll also be talking about what is going across the country and the possibilities for the future too. We see the potential, and we're still exploring other possibilities for playlists too.

Share the reflections, excitement and planning on Wednesday, April 12th at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT/6 pm MT / 5 pm PT (NOTE EARLIER TIME THIS WEEK) at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt

It should be exciting to respond to +Christopher Rogers recent "definition of abolition as pedagogical praxis, blending sources from Dylan Rodriguez, Christina Sharpe, and the #LetUsBreathe Collective."

Abolition as pedagogical praxis consists of rigorous experimentation and creative pedagogical radicalism that serves to rupture structural silences that produce and facilitate premature social and physical death, while further remaining committed to evolution past harmful systems and toward collective healing.
