Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teacher Librarian Look-see | Scoop.it

"Learning how to write a computer program is a lot like learning a new language. There are nouns, verbs, and sentences. With far fewer words than a spoken language, it may be easier too. A student of languages can pick it up just as quickly as a student of math. To help, here are a set of tools that teach computer programming."

Dragon Dictation: A Must-Have App for Writers - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman | Teacher Librarian Look-see | Scoop.it
I began using Dragon Dictation a few years ago when my work with a group of struggling writers left me searching for a tool that could help them get the great ideas they were sharing aloud onto a page. I wanted something elegant: a tool that wouldn’t interrupt students as they were speaking but rather, quietly capture what they were saying and flip it into text.
