From Dabbling to Doing: 6 Tools That Excite Kids About Coding - MindShift

From Dabbling to Doing: 6 Tools That Excite Kids About Coding - MindShift | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it
It’s clear coding and computer science have become key priorities in K-12 education. From Code.org’s massive round of funding and the formulation of the Computer Science Coalition to President Obama’s Computer Science For All initiative to big school districts, like the San Francisco Unified School District, building K-12 computer science curriculum – there’s indications that this is more than a passing fad.

Many educators are excited about the opportunities coding and computer science offer students, but with these new curricular priorities come the major practical, pedagogical challenges of building a scope and sequence and then transforming it into units and lessons (not to mention, you know, teaching). Given the problems computer science has had meeting the needs of all students — especially early on — there’s some tough challenges ahead for school leaders and educators to make sure computer science for all doesn’t fall flat.

Virtual Reality in Schools Becomes Something Real

Virtual Reality in Schools Becomes Something Real | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it
In one local district, students can travel to Ancient Egypt and back, sans time machine or permission slip.

Montour High School in Robinson, Penn., is home to a “virtual immersion lab” where computers come equipped with simulation software and styluses. Students need only throw on some 3D glasses—the kind that make animated characters jump at you in movie theaters—to plunge into a world where they can dissect dinosaurs, examine a human eye, or explore the pyramids up close.

8 Best Coding Games For Kids | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it
Help children become active rather than passive users of technology with these exciting coding games for kids. It’s much easier to teach kids programming when you offer them games that are interactive, entertaining and educational. Kids love playing games, so game based learning is a natural evolution and a perfect environment for coding games. Coding doesn’t have to be hard and boring, it can be fun if taught in the right way. Kids are growing up surrounded by technology so learning to program will be an essential part of their educational agenda and open up many opportunities for jobs in the future. Have a look at these eight best learn to code games for kids and choose the one your kid will love the most.

EDUCACIÓN FUNDACIÓN TELEFÓNICA's curator insight, August 1, 8:03 AM
"Programando cuentos maravillosos" es una propuesta metodológica de aula desarrollada por el docente Fernando Villar Palomar. Combina metodologías como el ABP,  gamificación y Flipped Classroom para trabajar la competencia lingüística desde el área de Lengua. Todo se articula de manera coherente para conseguir activar en alumnos de 5º de Primaria el interés intrínseco por aprender. Otro valor relevante es que se trabaja el pensamiento computacional en paralelo durante todas las fases del proyecto, integrando la programación con Scratch para que los alumnos realicen sus propias producciones narrativas audiovisuales.

Does Gamification Education Really Improve Learning?

Does Gamification Education Really Improve Learning? | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it
Students are used to playing games, earning badges for successfully completing challenges and sharing their wins with friends. The challenge of winning a level or beating an obstacle can keep them working until they can earn that achievement. Why not put that natural affinity for gaming to use with games that teach?

Danielarv's curator insight, November 18, 2:31 PM
You can find the answer of this question in this article which have enough arguments to believe that gamification really improve learning. One of the arguments is that games can increase the motivation through the challenge; for example, the challenge of winning a level make that the students can keep working. However; is necessary that teachers choose an appropriate educational game in order to integrate it in the lesson plan. If you want more about the others arguments to this question, you can click on it.
