Story reading online for Kids

Online DIY community for kids teaches offline skills

Reading the story via a

Some of the best kinds of learning happens independently, outside of schools and formal classes, when kids just set out to make something on their own, either from scratch or by emulating what someone else has done. Many times, the skills that kids learn from watching others, or by doing it all themselves, are not the ones taught in school anyway, especially when it comes to learning about ways to live more sustainably, which could be some of the most important lessons for the future of humankind.

An online DIY community for kids, and its accompanying app, is helping to making that learning and doing and creating process a lot more rewarding, by offering a wide range of skills and projects for kids (and their parents or teachers) to explore and improve upon.

"We’ve all seen how kids can be like little MacGyvers. They’re able to take anything apart, recycle what you’ve thrown away – or if they’re Caine, build their own cardboard arcade. This is play, but it’s also creativity and it’s a valuable skill. Our idea is to encourage it by giving kids a place online to show it off, so family, friends and grandparents can see it and easily respond. Recognition makes a kid feel great, and motivates them to keep going. We want them to keep making, and by doing so learn new skills, use technology constructively, begin a lifelong adventure of curiosity, and hopefully spend time offline, too." - DIY

DIY.org, a project from Zach Klein, one of Vimeo's cofounders, has a wide range of projects listed, but also includes a variety of green living skills that can be learned (and improved upon) by kids, including Backyard Farmer, Beekeeper, Forester, Gardener, Bike Mechanic, Mycologist, Baker, Pioneer, and more.

Parents have to sign up for their kids for the free DIY account (if the child is under 13), which includes a portfolio for each child where they can upload images and videos of their own creations (using either the web or the iOS app), and for each set of skill challenges they complete, kids can earn embroidered skill patches to display their progress.

The DIY community also has social features, so kids with common interests can comment on projects, ask questions, or favorite the projects of others, and has an option for DIY Clubs (as well as instructions on how to start a DIY Club if there isn't one nearby).

As a homeschooling parent, I like to see these kinds of empowered learning opportunities that are geared directly toward kids (YouTube is not a very kid-friendly place without parental supervision) and that feature other kids, and I think that classrooms, parents, and community organizations can all find some relevant DIY green living projects and skills worth pursuing on DIY.org.

Divorce- guidance and advice

Thank you for reading my post.
I have posted before. Short story, my wife decided to have an emotional affair with a man in Australia and wants to pursue a future with him.
She wanted us to stay together for our kids and support her until she graduated from college.
97% of the time for the last four months I have had to listen to her talk to this guy online via skype or an online game with ventrilo.
I work from home and our office is setup this way and I have no where else to move my desk and computer, limited space.
We have been arguing about once a week since I found out what was going on

  • Avatar Shiddy Smell Where can I read Star Wars Literature (books, comics, etc.) online?
    Nov 10, 2008 by Shiddy Smell | Posted in Books & Authors

    I am a huge fan of Star Wars literature, especially the stuff published in the pre-Prequel era, before the new movies were released.

    I am looking for any sites that provide entire texts of any of the Star Wa …r Wars: Legacy and related comics, or any of "The Essential Guide to..." series of reference books. Do any of the sites exist? Best answer goes to the best link posted, or if none exist, then the best explanation of why.

    • They are all recently published, so they are still under copyright. Unless one of the authors has intentionally put the book online, you are most likely out of luck.

      Pirate sites, that scan copyrighted works and make them available with no payment to the author, are inconsiderate to the author, and they're illegal. You would not want that to happen to your novel.
