Coding for the Common Core: 15 iPad Coding Apps for K-5+ — Emerging Education Technologies

Coding for the Common Core: 15 iPad Coding Apps for K-5+ — Emerging Education Technologies | 21st century education | Scoop.it
Yesterday we published the article, “Coding for the Common Core – Apps for Integrating Coding With Math and ELA“, in which we shared numerous programmable robots and insights and lesson plans that offer ideas for how they can be used on classrooms teaching various subjects.

Today, we share 15 different iPad apps (many of them are free!) that can help teach coding skills while reinforcing related skills like mathematics, logic, reading, and more! These apps are geared toward students of elementary through middle schools ages.

The Difference Between Instructivism, Constructivism, And Connectivism |TeachThought.com

The Difference Between Instructivism, Constructivism, And Connectivism |TeachThought.com | 21st century education | Scoop.it

We spend so much time in education trying to make things better.


Better policies.

Better technology.

Better standards.

Better curriculum.

Better instruction.

Better assessment.

Better response to assessment data.

 

And too with research, teacher collaboration, school design, parent communication, and so on. In fact, many of the “fads” in education that ebb and flow are simply micro-experimentation with this macro and general notion of “better”–zooming in on one thing–whole child education, whole language reading, or gender-based classrooms, and so on.

 

So while viewing a presentation from Jackie Gerstein recently (that we’re going to share in full tomorrow), I was stopped at the very simple distinction she made between instructivism, constructivism, and connectivism. These differences dovetail behind broader differences between pedagogy, andragogy, and heautagrogy–fundamental assumptions about how and why people learn that have to be considered if our end goal is not to make students better at school, but rather to improve literacy and critical thinking for global citizens everywhere.

 

So as you focus in your PLC or staff meetings on better “research-based instruction,” you’re looking at ways to improve how to better deliver instruction–more to understand how to better “give learning” than to cause it.

Have used some of these apps but there are more to look at.

Homeschool FL's curator insight, June 2, 2013 8:33 PM

Educational apps are popping up daily, but the question for parents is, how to know which ones are worth using, and which ones are not? Because let's face it, the app industry is out to make money, and many times app developers are very astute at making an app that "looks" educational, but in reality is just full of ads and sneaky ways of getting your children to buy something.

 

This article lists 46 different websites that review apps for teachers and students. This should help cut through the clutter and help pinpoint the useful from the fluff.

Microsoft has released a new computer science curriculum designed for teens who may not have expressed much interest in computer programming – and teachers who don't necessarily have any background in the field, either.

The curriculum, called Creative Coding Through Games And Apps, is available for free to any educator who wants to use it.

The course aims to encourage a wide range of students to explore computer science by teaching them to program and publish real apps and games.

I agree with these insights.  My 7th grade students have written their first Argumentative Essay on these iPads.  I told any of them that they were welcome to use paper and pencil since this was an important assignment and needed to be done to the best of their ability.  Out of 100 students, I've had 6 who hand wrote their paper.  The rest of them chose the iPad.  Some were using the split screen like texting since we have the iPad minis.

As a teacher I try to expose children to technology. Some of them pick it up quickly, some of them are cautious. And yes we are preparing them for jobs that don't yet exist!

"As I dig deeper into the reality of the one iPad Classroom I am most intrigued by apps that allow students and teachers to create. On a computer I have learned to weave together digital tools to make them do exactly what I want them to do, but I must admit I am not there yet on the iPad. One app that appeals to me for teaching and learning on an  iPad is Explain Everything."
