Coding for Kindergarteners - Edutopia

Coding for Kindergarteners - Edutopia | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
Last year at this time, I was trying not to think about kindergarteners. I was still teaching ninth grade English and had just accepted a job teaching technology to K-5. I was excited about the challenge, and I knew that I'd bitten off more than I could chew.

Developing the tech curriculum challenged me to teach programming or at least computational thinking at each elementary grade level. Our school is mid-pivot in technology -- we're in our second year of a middle school 1:2 iPad program, our first year of having a cart of iPads available for elementary, and our last year of two PC labs for the students to use (next year we'll have only one lab). Knowing this, I wanted to design a program that mostly used tablet-based tools.

William Griffin's curator insight, December 7, 9:04 PM

The idea of teaching children how to code is a great one.  Technology has rapidly changed the world and all of it stems from coding.  Just like most skills, the sooner its learned, the more time it can be mastered, and ultimately effectiveness is maximized.

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
Almost 70% of primary and secondary schools in the UK now use tablet computers, according to research.

But the study says there is no clear evidence of academic improvement for pupils using tablet devices.

The study, commissioned by education technology charity Tablets for Schools, looked at a representative sample of 671 state and independent schools.

Many pupils reported that they took an internet-connected device to bed to continue social media conversations.

The rapid growth of tablet computers in the classroom was one of the ways in which the study found that young people are immersed in technology at school and home.

Try DMD Topic To Create Talking Pictures On Your iPad - iPad Apps for School | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
DMD Topic is a neat iPad app for quickly creating short videos. To create a video you simply take a picture or import a picture from your iPad’s camera roll then start talking about the picture. You can record for up to 30 seconds. When you’re finished recording, watch the video and select “tagging” to make the video automatically zoom to the objects that you are talking about in your video

"If you’ve had an iPad (or several) in your classroom for any extended period of time, you’re probably familiar with the many practical ways this technology can be used as a central hub for learning. You know all about storing materials in iCloud, and collaborating via Google Drive. You know about the main apps you’ll need to run a classroom, as well as the best apps for World History, English and Math."

The 25 best education apps for connected classrooms - Daily Genius | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
Figuring out which tool is right for the job is something we all struggle with every day. Whether you’re a contractor, plumber, or teacher, there’s a lot of options to choose from. Teachers managing connected classrooms have it quite rough, though. There’s an embarassment of riches when it comes to apps, web tools, and digital services that want to make your life easier. So how do you easily figure out which are the best education apps for connected classrooms, you ask? Great rhetorical question, Jeff!

6 Good iPad Apps to Turn Pictures Into Cartoons and Comics ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 Good iPad Apps to Turn Pictures Into Cartoons and Comics ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
I spent sometime this weekend curating and working on the list of iPad apps below. These are apps that students can use to create beautiful cartoons to use in their multimedia projects or in activities that involve comic strips, digital storytelling, presentations and many more. All of these apps are easy to use and do not require any advanced technical skill. Some of the things students can do with these apps include: take pictures and turn them into cartoons, capture cartoon videos, draw cartoon sketches, customize and add different effects to pictures, convert photos into cartoon avatars, and many more.

I am a big fan of Google collaboration tools that make it easy for teachers and students to work together on shared documents.  It can make completing a class project easier and help students connect with their peers at any time of the school day.  Over the past few months the iOS apps for Google tools have been updated to make creating, collaborating, and sharing even easier than before.  Users can move from one device to another and pick up right where they left off.
