15 free games that will help you learn how to code

15 free games that will help you learn how to code | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

"Online learning has come a long way in the last few years.

"When I started learning to code, the options were limited—lots of books (not even e-books), some very basic online tutorials, and a whole lot of experimentation.

Online learning has come a long way in the last few years. There are interactive courses, tons of online tutorials, and one of my personal favorite ways to practice coding: games.

While a game alone probably isn’t going to teach you everything you need to know about coding, it can be a really incredible way to practice the skills you’re learning. It makes practice fun. And if you’re anything like me, you might suddenly realize you’ve spent the last four hours reinforcing your coding skills without even realizing it.

I’ve tried out some of the most entertaining and useful games for learning to code. Check out my favorites below."

Students sit to take important exam, are shocked to find teacher's wrote note on their desk | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Standardized testing is an incredibly stressful time for students. While it doesn’t necessarily count against their grades in school, it’s an assessment that many analyze to view a child’s ability.

Keeping this in mind, Chandhi Langford, a fifth grade teacher at Evergreen Avenue Elementary School in Woodbury, New Jersey, chose to do something surprise. When students walked into class the morning of PARRC standardized testing, they were shocked to find handwritten notes on each of their desks.

How Kids Learn Better By Taking Frequent Breaks Throughout The Day

How Kids Learn Better By Taking Frequent Breaks Throughout The Day | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

Excerpted from Teach Like Finland: 33 Simple Strategies For Joyful Classrooms (c) 2017 by Timothy D. Walker. Used with permission of the publisher, W. W. Norton. 


"Like a zombie, Sami*—one of my fifth graders—lumbered over to me and hissed, “I think I’m going to explode! I’m not used to this schedule.” And I believed him. An angry red rash was starting to form on his forehead.

Yikes, I thought, what a way to begin my first year of teaching in Finland. It was only the third day of school, and I was already pushing a student to the breaking point. When I took him aside, I quickly discovered why he was so upset.

Throughout this first week of school, I had gotten creative with my fifth grade timetable. If you recall, students in Finland normally take a fifteen-minute break for every forty-five minutes of instruction. During a typical break, the children head outside to play and socialize with friends.

I didn’t see the point of these frequent pit stops. As a teacher in the United States, I’d usually spent consecutive hours with my students in the classroom. And I was trying to replicate this model in Finland. The Finnish way seemed soft, and I was convinced that kids learned better with longer stretches of instructional time. So I decided to hold my students back from their regularly scheduled break and teach two forty-five-minute lessons in a row, followed by a double break of thirty minutes. Now I knew why the red dots had appeared on Sami’s forehead."
