15 Math Websites for Teachers & 5 for Kids | Prodigy | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Finding educational and helpful math websites used to be a challenge for teachers. Now, the problem is finding the best ones.

SAS CodeSnaps: A New Way to Code!

SAS CodeSnaps: A New Way to Code! | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"Some people think that K-12 computer science requires a large budget, a classroom full of tablets and robots, and an experienced tech teacher. We are pleased to dispel those myths--and introduce you to SAS CodeSnaps!


CodeSnaps is a collaborative coding environment requiring only one iPad and one robot. The app takes advantage of tangible, printed coding blocks, allowing students to prepare programs together on a shared work surface without a device. After students scan the blocks with the app, commands can be executed on the connected robot (compatible robots include Sphero, Ollie, SPRK, and SPRK+)."

26 Questions to Help Kids Know Themselves Better

26 Questions to Help Kids Know Themselves Better | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Children grow and change rapidly, both physically and emotionally. As parents, we strive to help our children understand who they are, what they believe in, and how to be independent and competent adults. We aren’t trying to raise clones of ourselves, but recognize that our children are separate and unique and we need to help them grow into their authentic selves with love and acceptance.

3 Best Ways To Teach Children Coding for A Better Future

3 Best Ways To Teach Children Coding for A Better Future | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
"Encouraging your kids to get involved with coding is one of the best things you can do for them as an insurance against their future; there will never be a shortage of tech-related jobs. Preparing children early on will help them have the necessary skills to find a great job in their career or even create a startup of their own. Your child could be the next to create bots that simplify businesses or social platforms that cultivate a community. When it comes to coding, it’s never too early to get started.``

Create Engaging Green Screen Video Projects

Create Engaging Green Screen Video Projects | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
One of the most imaginative class projects I’ve consulted on was a 4th grade project about California Missions. Each year, students were required to submit written reports about the history and significance of the religious outposts. From all reports, it wasn’t exactly the most electrifying week of the year. After much discussion, we decided to throw tradition out the window and take a very different approach. This time, we asked students to demonstrate their understanding by creating video guides to the mission with the aid of some magical green screen technology.

Throughout this blog I have referred to many books which give ideas on how to incorporate a Makerspace within a school environment. I thought it was about time to update and suggest old and new titles which have some great ideas and reasons why ‘making’ is so important for our children.
