Ryer Banta's curator insight, November 23, 2013 10:16 PM

Looks like this company has delivered on the great idea of making the creation of apps accessible to all. They have an education focus. I look forward to sitting down and doing some serious testing with this.  Great implications for project based teaching and engagement. In library, learning commons and across campus.

Al Post's curator insight, November 25, 2013 9:21 PM

Looks interesting. I wonder how it compares to AppInventor from MIT. http://www.appinventor.org/ ;

ElizabethHS's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:36 AM

From Nik Peachey's "Commercial Software and Apps for Learning" -- but this one is free for students and teachers.

I'm interested in how many apps there now are to help students program their own content into games. Another step toward gamification. Also, most of these apps are cross-platform, iWorld and Android.

AAAS - Project 2061 - 2061 Connections - Using Phenomena to Promote Science Literacy

AAAS - Project 2061 - 2061 Connections - Using Phenomena to Promote Science Literacy | NGSS Resources | Scoop.it

Poster session showcases phenomena that support K–12 learning goals

Much of science involves finding patterns in observations and explaining them in terms of a small number of principles or ideas. For students to appreciate how science works, they need to have a sense of the range of observations (phenomena) that are used to form the patterns and the helpfulness of the principles or ideas in explaining them. Project 2061’s evaluations of science textbooks revealed that textbooks rarely engaged students with phenomena—real-world objects, systems, and events—relevant to important science ideas. In addition, the textbooks rarely included phenomena that directly address the often incorrect ideas that students may already have and rarely guided students in reconciling phenomena with scientifically accepted ideas (Kesidou & Roseman, 2002; Stern & Roseman, 2004; American Association for the Advancement of Science [AAAS], 2002, 2005).
