Dr. Laura Sheneman's insight:

A reading transformation can occur in your school much like it has in my classroom, replacing fear and dread with excitement and self-expression. Students will read if they choose the books. They will write with voice and clarity if they have the ability to express their thoughts. They can change from reluctant to inspired readers if it happens on their own terms. All you have to do is flip the experience, turning the practice of reading on its head by making them the creators of their own learning.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's insight:

I hope you are celebrating this week with students you know - young or old.  If you are a business, I hope you find a way to connect with a local school to encourage them to participate in this endeavor.

Vivalist's curator insight, December 7, 2014 4:02 PM

yet another list of great tools to teach computer programming to kids. Good resources there.

 

I tried some of the hour of code exercises with my 6years old and it's great... she gets it right away and the benefits are instantaenous. She felt "empowered" and pride of her achievment. Very well designed so kids are never overwhelmed by info and instructions.

Marta Ciesielska's curator insight, December 8, 2014 4:11 AM

Maybe not exactly about design abilities, but interesting thing about eLearning how to code.
