Free Technology for Teachers: Cargo Bot - An iPad Game About Logic | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

"Cargo Bot is a fun and challenging game that students can play to learn some principles of logic and programming. The object of the game is to program a robot to complete increasingly complex sequences of tasks. Students start out by programming the robot to move one box from point A to point B. After successfully programming the robot students are advanced to programming more complex tasks like a repeating loop of movements and staggered movements."

Appealing Apps for Educators: How SonicPics amplifies a student’s voice

Appealing Apps for Educators: How SonicPics amplifies a student’s voice | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

"SonicPics is a perfect example of such an app, and it is one that should be in every elementary iPad classroom. The power of SonicPics is in its simplicity: essentially, it is an app where you can narrate a collection of photos. However, within that simple concept lie multiple transformative strategies for student content creation, assessment of student learning, and differentiation. SonicPics is one of those apps that just works, and once you use it with your students, it will become an app that you turn to again and again.
