- From the Principal's Office: BYOD and the Paperless Classroom

- From the Principal's Office: BYOD and the Paperless Classroom | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"t New Milford High School teachers are adapting their professional practice as we continue to evolve into a Bring Your Own Device school where student-owned technology integrated effectively.  NMHS teachers are also beginning to to integrate social media tools that are blocked and banned in the majority of schools across the country.  Ms. Smith’s science class has gone paperless. Students complete assignments whether it’s homework, class work, projects and tests all online using various websites, such as, Edmodo, Tumblr and Instagram on their BYOD devices. They also use their smart phones, iPads, iPods and digital cameras to take notes or to capture information. All pictures, notes and assignments are posted on the websites, e-mailed or placed on their private homework blogs. This has led to more student engagement, accountability and participation in the classroom, peer reviews and instant feedback to the students on how they are progressing. "

Programming for Primary Schools Using iPad Apps - HappyNumbers

Programming for Primary Schools Using iPad Apps - HappyNumbers | AC Library News | Scoop.it
With the introduction of Computer Science into the UK curriculum in 2014, learning to program is now an entitlement and a vital skill for children to learn.

Via John Evans

Maria Raggett's curator insight, March 5, 2014 6:03 AM

Programming for primary schools using iPad apps such as HappyNumbers is a creative and fun way to encourage students from year 2 - 7 to use design thinking and technologies to generate and produce designed solutions for authentic needs and opportunities.  Students will use computational thinking and information systems to define, design and implement digital solutions.

 

HappyNumbers allows students to be creators instead of consumers of computer science.” Learning to program enhances other areas of the curriculum; including problem solving, critical thinking and logical thinking and can be helpful in understanding other subjects, such as maths.

Foundation-year2:

Sequence steps for making designed solutions and working collaboratively (ACTDEP009)

Year 3-4:

Plan a sequence of production steps when making designed solutions individually and collaboratively (ACTDEP018)

Years 5, 6 & 7:

Develop project plans that include consideration of resources when making designed solutions individually and collaboratively (ACTDEP028)

 

Elaboration:

Develop an understanding of mathematical concepts and fluency with processes, and are able to pose and solve problems and reason in Number and Algebra (ACARA, 2014).
