Coding for Kindergarteners - Edutopia

Coding for Kindergarteners - Edutopia | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it

"Last year at this time, I was trying not to think about kindergarteners. I was still teaching ninth grade English and had just accepted a job teaching technology to K-5. I was excited about the challenge, and I knew that I'd bitten off more than I could chew.


Developing the tech curriculum challenged me to teach programming or at least computational thinking at each elementary grade level. Our school is mid-pivot in technology -- we're in our second year of a middle school 1:2 iPad program, our first year of having a cart of iPads available for elementary, and our last year of two PC labs for the students to use (next year we'll have only one lab). Knowing this, I wanted to design a program that mostly used tablet-based tools."

Life of an Educator: Have 'summative' assessments become obsolete?

Life of an Educator: Have 'summative' assessments become obsolete? | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it

"We hear the terms 'formative' and 'summative' assessments all the time in schools.

 As educators, we learned about the differences while in college in our education preparation courses. We now talk all the time about using assessments to 'drive' our instruction and provide guidance on where students are in the learning process."

A summary of Apple's announcements for the launch of its new products: the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the Apple Watch and ApplePay (where you can use your phone to make purchases). It is all very interesting - but this is an American site so keep in mind the prices are not realistic for us. Expect to pay nearly $1000 for the new top-model iPhone. :/
