New Book - Lifelong Kindergarden
There is a new book coming out that loos really interesting, from Mitchel Resnick Professor of Learning Research at the MIT Media Lab, I'm waiting for print edition to come out, whats your fav Maker Ed book?
I like Makerspaces - A practical guide for librarians by John J Burke (9781442229679) as it gives a really good overview of the different kinds of Makerspaces that are possible and practical hints and tips.
I wondered about some of the Make books on electronics but are there safety issues in having books based on US electricity supplies?
That's a great book too (Burke's).
In relation to electronics, most maker electronics projects are low voltage, run from batteries or microboards so it doesn't matter if US, UK or EU power supply. You normally power a board with an adaptor that turns the AC (alternate current) high voltage (110 to 230V) into low voltage DC (direct current).
@carlos Great, thanks Carlos!
I see there is a new edition of Zero to Maker by David Lang
Anyone know it?
seems so! according to Amazon "First published in 2013, this new edition features full-color photos and shares David's latest insights and experiences as he continues to grow as a maker entrepreneur and citizen scientist"
I quite enjoyed reading it (first edition of course)
I ordered my Lifelong Kindergarten on amazon almost a month ago and still waiting for delivery, has anyone got their yet?
Looks like it hasn't arrived yet anywhere - reminds me that I should get on and order it!
think is being delivered from USA...
