Back to Germany Over to Austria for a very creative open teaching manual for K-12.   If I was a K-12 teacher I’d be seriously excited by this find because it’s well designed and easy to follow teaching handbook for Making activities with children and teenagers. Manual for creative digital designIt’s available as a pdf or you can navigate the various chapters from this page. Here’s how it is described on the website.

Making activities with children and teenagers. Manual for creative digital design

Here is the PDF for the free, openly licensed Handbook on Making with Children and Young People: ” Making Activities with Children and Young People” Handbook on Creative Digital Design , edited by Sandra Schön, Martin Ebner and Kristin Narr (2016).

And that’s what it’s about:

Thirty-three projects on creative digital design with children and adolescents at school, at leisure and MINT initiatives are presented in this handbook. In addition backgrounds for the making are described. Among the project descriptions are concepts for open digital workshops for children, youth hackathons, makerspaces at the school, workshop offers and lessons on 3D modeling, optics, stereoscopy and virtual reality. Whether it’s programming, 3D printing, photography with a smartphone or cartooning with tablets, soldering LEDs or working with Raspberry Pi, the MaKey-MaKey-Kit or other new and old tools: It’s always about how children work together with children World around digital and technology can be creatively designed and reinvented. It prefers to describe projects

I got pretty excited by the table of contents, which I’m cutting and pasting in its entirety below because it’s too good to miss.
