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

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.

A useful tool for differentiation perhaps?

Use Apple TV in the Classroom? Please Do This Tip! - teachingwithipad.org | Teacher Librarian Look-see | Scoop.it
This is a must for those teachers use the great benefits that the AppleTV can bring to the classroom.

Do you see this intro screen when the Apple TV turns on?


Those movies on the top? While a lot of these are the most popular movies playing though it is, they may not be the most appropriate for our students. This happened just today as I was teaching in another classroom, and it was a small distraction during my lesson. Kids were excited to see their favorite movie, in this instance, Big Hero 6. They cheered and became excited. Wild this case was harmless, I can only imagine other cases where movies that are rated PG-13 or higher can cause some concern for teachers of younger students. These can even be a distraction for high schoolers, who will likely veer off topic if they see a movie that they like or dislike.
