Three Awesome Games That Help Kids Make Games

Three Awesome Games That Help Kids Make Games | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it
Summer break presents the perfect opportunity for students to dig into games and build skills that'll reap huge rewards when they return in the fall. Game making can be one of the best ways to get students thinking creatively while cultivating useful technical literacies, and there's a ton of absorbing tools that students won't tire of over the long break. Here are three options to choose from depending on the type of technology students have at home.

Made with Code - Google | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"We started Made with Code because even though increasingly more aspects in our lives are powered by technology, women aren’t represented in the companies, labs, research, creative arts, design, organizations, and boardrooms that make technology happen.

 

If girls are inspired to see that Computer Science can make the world more beautiful, more usable, more safe, more kind, more innovative, more healthy, and more funny, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their essential voices. As parents, teachers, organizations, and companies we’re making it our mission to creatively engage girls with code.

 

Today, less than 1% of girls are majoring in CS.

 

Tomorrow, we can make that number go up."

"Blended learning is a potentially powerful way of mixing the power of asynchronous access with face-to-face facilitation and instruction.

It’s this mixing of old and new that makes it tempting for many schools and districts wanting to dip their toes in the water of eLearning and far-reaching technology access while still depending on the expertise and training of human teachers."

I have one to add. It is not so much an issue but a way of working that functions for me. Students often won't want to put the devices down and listen once they are in their hands. I use the "upside down iPads" command for when I want their attention. They can also turn them upside down to indicate that they have finished a task.

 "Children and teens with learning disabilities sometimes have a hard time with social skills and behavior, including reading or communicating nonverbal signals. The following mobile apps may provide your child or teen with some high-tech support. Although we did extensive research on available apps, we also learned that just because “there’s an app for that” it doesn’t mean that it’s right for everyone."

iPad App of the Week: Juxtaposer | iPad Insight | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device. Great apps, and unique apps that you just don’t find anywhere else, are one of the hallmark features of the iPad. They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

 

This week’s pick is Juxtaposer, an app that lets you combine multiple pictures to create fun and striking new images. Better still, it’s got an easy to use interface – that makes the process quite quick."

Gamify your classrooms with Kahoot. | ipadders.eu | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students.


It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."
