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 | Educated | 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 Geography of E-Waste

The Geography of E-Waste | Educated | Scoop.it
The world is increasingly going hi-tech. Many people in our high consumption society want the latest and the greatest; last year’s much anticipated laptops and cell phones are miles behind the newest models that are coming out. So what happens with the old models? Even thrift stores are politely not accepting them as donations. Even some workable machines that were highly valuable 10 years ago are now functionally trash in our society. We can’t put it to the curb to end up in the landfill because of the lead, mercury, and other hazardous materials that can leak into the environment. This type of trash is what we call e-waste. The geography of e-waste is an ‘out of sight out of mind’ problem that we rarely think about but need to due to the ecological impacts of our collective consumption.

Parents who are uneasy about their own math skills often worry about how best to teach the subject to their kids.

Well … there’s an app for that. Tons of them, in fact. And a study published today in the journal Science suggests that at least one of them works pretty well for elementary school children and math-anxious parents.

Teaching about 9/11

"In the years after the attacks of September 11, debates about how the United States should respond to the threat of terrorism remain of central importance. The death of Osama bin Laden, the rise of 'homegrown' terrorists, and the use of drones to kill suspected terrorists pose new questions and challenges for policy makers and citizens. Responding to Terrorism: Challenges for Democracy helps students consider the issues surrounding the 9.11.01 attacks and the U.S. response to terrorism in a constructive context that promotes dialogue about future policy directions." http://wp.me/p2dv5Z-1AU

This video paired with this lesson plan from the Choices Program will help students explore the human dimension of the September 11 attacks as will this lesson from Teaching History. For a geospatial perspective on 9-11, this page from the Library of Congress, hosted by the Geography and Map Division is a visually rich resources (aerial photography, thermal imagery, LiDAR, etc.)  that show the extent of the damage and the physical change to the region that the terrorist attacks brought.  The images from that day are a part of American memory and change how the event is remembered and memorialized in public spaces.  Also on global terrorism, the Choices Program has also produced some materials on how to teach about ISIS as an emerging geopolitical threat.

10 reasons teachers do NOT use education technology - Daily Genius

10 reasons teachers do NOT use education technology - Daily Genius | Educated | Scoop.it
There are plenty of reasons teachers do not use education technology. It’s expensive. It’s hard to always find a reason to implement edtech into a particular lesson. That’s all true and valid, really.

But what are the other big reasons that teachers don’t use technology in the classroom? We did a little digging through surveys, social media, blogs, reports, and the Daily Genius community to uncover the top 10 reasons that edtech is getting passed over. The results might (or might not) surprise you.

The Historical Geographies of the Fortune Cookie

This  99 Percent Invisible podcast explores the fascinating story of the Americanization of Chinese food, and the icon of Chinese food in the States, the  fortune cookie (no, that is decidedly NOT from China).  This is yet another podcast from 99 Percent Invisible that is rich in geographic content. 

 

That first podcast is reminiscent of a second podcast from  NPR about an American-style Chinese restaurant that opened in Shanghai to cater to Americans living in China who miss 'Chinese food' as it's made back home.  What's the name of the restaurant?  Fortune Cookie, of course.

As with some other cultures, the Chinese food we eat is different from it original homeland (Mexican food is another example). Many thing the fortune cookie if from China, but it is an American idea.

7 Ways to Make the Most Out of Student Teaching | Student MSTA | Educated | Scoop.it
MSTA's insight:

Student teaching provides a way for prospective educators to acquire firsthand experience in the classroom. Student teachers have the opportunity to work on the day-to-day tasks involved with education, including coming up with lesson plans, interacting and encouraging students and even taking part in after-school activities. Student teaching also offers a way to work on fostering relationships with professional educators in order to build a successful career. To enjoy all of these benefits, student teachers need to ensure that they are making the most of their experience in the classroom by taking the following steps:
1. Build relationships with teachers and students.

38 Reasons Why Every Educator Needs an iPad Pro

38 Reasons Why Every Educator Needs an iPad Pro | Educated | Scoop.it
The Apple Keynote 2015 edition happened on 9/9/15 in the legendary Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Monster announcements were made across several of the Apple products. However, the unveiling of an all new iPad Pro got every spectator on the edge of their seats as one-after-another Apple demonstrated the glory of their tablet device. When it comes to devices for learning and teaching in classroom, I am a big fan of the iPad. The excellent quality display features, graphics, anywhere, anytime truly mobile learning solutions offered by this tablet with a lucid, highly responsive MultiTouch experience and App Store’s unlimited productivity, creativity and teaching-learning oriented solutions have made iPad an irresistible education technology tool for all educators.  When Apple released its first ever iPad it might not have the huge diversity and potential that this tablet device could offer. Tim Cook himself admitted to being amazed at the diverse ways in which people had used the iPad. He called it Apple’s vision for the future of personal computing.

Since its five years of inception, iPad has truly transformed the way we create, the way we learn, and the way we work. And the all new iPad Pro is all set to take the create-work-learn paradigm to an all new level.
