Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Preparing for STEM Lessons on Coding with Hopscotch for iPad

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Preparing for STEM Lessons on Coding with Hopscotch for iPad | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"This evening I’ve been playing with the free iPad app “Hopscotch,” which I’m planning to use for a four part / two week introductory unit on coding on the iPad with my 4th and 5th grade STEM students. (@iesSTEM) I’ve worked quite a bit with Scratch software from MIT, but this is my first time to “seriously play” with Hopscotch. Hopscotch is similar to Scratch, as a block-based (or icon-based) programming environment, but it is MUCH more limited with fewer available coding blocks. Despite these limitations, it appears to be a great app to use when introducing students to coding. And, it’s FREE! Since I have an iPad cart to use with students in my STEM classroom, but not full-day access to one of our school’s Windows-based computer labs, an iPad-based coding solution / app like Hopscotch is preferable for me now over Scratch. (Scratch is still flash-based, so although it’s web-based it doesn’t work completely on iPads. I’ve tried using Scratch on flash-friendly iPad browser apps like iSwifter and Puffin, but haven’t found the experience very good… yet.)"

Math Slicer - A Fun Alternative to Flashcards - iPad Apps for School

Math Slicer - A Fun Alternative to Flashcards - iPad Apps for School | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Math Slicer is an iPad app that presents a fun alternative to using flashcards to practice basic mathematics skills. In Math Slicer students are shown addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems that they have to answer by “slicing” the correct answer in half. The answer choices jump up on the screen and students have to slice them before they disappear."

I think this would be a great alternative to flash cards. Many of my students have told me that they love the game "fruit ninja" which is a game that has a similar style.  This game could make math more relatable to the students. 

Fabio Lam's curator insight, November 7, 2013 4:17 PM

Fun and interactive app to help students learn more about Math in a "Fruit Ninja" style.

iPad Air or Retina iPad Mini: Which New iPad Is for You? - Mashable | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"It used to be easy to choose what iPad to get. Those who wanted the most power and highest-resolution screen could opt for the full-size iPad; those who wanted something smaller and easier to hold in one hand, the iPad mini. This year, Apple has made the differences between the two devices more minute than ever."

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling - MindShift

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling - MindShift | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"The following is the first of a series of excerpts from Glickman’s book iPad in Education for Dummies.

 

The digital aspect of storytelling raises the art to a new level of experience. The emergence of technology and digital media has resulted in some significant departures from the traditional role of storytelling in education: Stories have become media-rich experiences. Billions of mobile devices are in the hands of people worldwide, and an ever-increasing percentage of those devices contain video cameras, still cameras, and microphones. Whenever anything of personal significance happens, it can be captured and chronicled in digital media that we edit, process, and publish. Within minutes, that moment is available to friends and family around the world. Media has become the language of today."
