In our latest issue of our iPad magazine, we talk about the importance and benefits of teaching kids how to code. This lively video by Stephen Howell in the Dublin Interaction Design Association (IxDA) conference tells us all about how he developed a toolkit ‘Kinect2Scratch‘ that teaches kids programming by using Scratch and the Kinect.

10 Great Writing iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Great Writing iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Apps For Children | Scoop.it

"It is amazing how fast the iTunes app store is growing, no sooner does an app appear then it becomes outdated. It seems like app developers outnumber customers and this is a good thing for us because with the growing competition comes enhanced productivity. However, searching for educational apps to use or recommend for your kids and students is not an easy task and the abundance of apps does not mean anything out there does what its developers claim. Prudence is highly warranted in your selections. This is one reason why I share lists of educational apps with you here. I know not everyone of you has got the time to sift through the bundles of apps there. That being said, today Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has curated for you a new and updated list of some awesome writing apps. Check it out below and don't forget to share with us your feedback. Enjoy"
