Get Your Students Coding With These 20 iPad Apps

Get Your Students Coding With These 20 iPad Apps | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Do you have iPads in your classroom? Are you getting some this year? 

I have been doing a lot of traveling these past couple months. I attended
the ISTE conference and gave a couple poster sessions. I also
delivered professional development in my own district and a week long class
in Arizona. One topic that is getting left behind in all this technology is
coding. The Hour of Code has given a great boost to the awareness of
programming, but I just read that an article recently that stated 90% of
schools still aren't teaching coding.

One way to make a change is to just dive in and give it a try. July is the
only month I have to take a break and clear my head. I like to reflect on
the past school year and give myself three goals for the upcoming year.
Having students learn to code doesn't have to be a difficult task, even if
you have only one iPad. Just look at the list below and actually try to do
some of the coding tasks in these apps yourself. You will be surprised at
the immediate feedback you get and how it engages you to use critical
thinking to solve problems.

This list has been updated, thanks to Jeanne Reed, and has (IMHO) the top
apps for your students to get started with coding. Please feel free to
contact me if you see anything missing as Jeanne did. I am always happy to
update the list with current information. The important thing is while you
have time right now, purchase an app an give it a try yourself. Your
students will appreciate that they have an awesome teacher that isn't
afraid to learn coding alongside them.
