How to code in schools: a teacher and student's guide (Wired UK)

How to code in schools: a teacher and student's guide (Wired UK) | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it
"Before the term started, a lot of people were feeling under-confident, especially in primary schools," says Swidenbank. "All evidence now shows confidence is on the up." The biggest challenge remains the knowledge gaps, she asserts. But Codeacademy's own figures show the extent of the dent being made in that area. It has had 100,000 new student signups in the past three months and has partnered with more than 2,000 schools since September, bringing its total to more than 3,000.

The biggest change, has been a growth in confidence -- in both teachers and students. Keeping on top of the learning is the key to ensuring that confidence thrives, and Swidenbank has seen the results of that firsthand.

Using new technology in special education...

Heejoon Ahn's curator insight, December 17, 9:40 PM

The usage of technology such as the iPad is used to help students communicate with their educators, practice their writing, or to even practice their control over their muscles and hand-coordination. Many students with special needs sometimes take a long time to finish a simple task such as pressing a button on the screen, and the iPad is another technology which can make the task enjoyable.
