Cargo-Bot, An Addictive iPad Game That Teaches Programming Concepts

Cargo-Bot, An Addictive iPad Game That Teaches Programming Concepts | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

The key to learning to code is learning to think like a computer--which is a hard thing to do. "It requires structured thinking, ability to abstract details away, and there’s little margin for error--one little typo and your program might do something entirely different from what you wanted," says game developer Rui Viana. "The real world just doesn’t work like that, so it’s hard to get your head around it." Which is precisely why Viana created Cargo-Bot, a simple iPad app that turns "thinking like a computer" into a genuinely addictive puzzle game. It’s like
Angry Birds crossed with Codecademy, and it’s total genius.

Tablets and Assessments – A Closer Look

Tablets and Assessments – A Closer Look | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

I think we’re all looking forward to the day when tablets can be used for statewide assessments.

The potential challenges of today’s current-generation tablets may be less obvious, however, but are equally important. Some of these may even require new solutions from the tablet and mobile Operating System (OS) manufacturers themselves

Ten Tools for Your Pinterest Toolbelt

Ten Tools for Your Pinterest Toolbelt | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
Pinterest is a great social networking site, but it is definitely still young and lacking in some features.

 

...If you’d like the Pinterest experience but with more features, you can either use an entirely different Pinterest alternative, or you can try using one of these Pinterest-based tools.


This collection has a huge variety of tools, including ways to explore, discover, analyze and more. There are even a few browser plug-ins to really make your Pinterest experience worthwhile. These tools definitely give Pinterest a whole new layer of functionality and you’re sure to find at least one you don’t know how you ever pinned without. Read on to learn about 10 of my favorite Pinterest tools....

Play online, learn online and feed the hungry | Freerice.com

Play online, learn online and feed the hungry | Freerice.com | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

For every correct answer you choose, 10 grains of rice are raised to help end world hunger through the United Nations World Food Programme.

 

The site slogan is "Not your average online trivia game", which is true because this is both an online learning tool and a powerful tool to raise meals for the world's hungry.

 

It's free to use, and players can choose from a range of subjects: English vocab or grammar, other languages such as Spanish, Italian, German and French, Human Antomy, Geography subjects, Math, Famous Paintings, and much more.

 

If you get an answer wrong, it gets repeated later to help you learn. You can login and track your totals by rice, join and create groups, and share all of this learning on your social media profiles.

 

For every correct answer, 10 grains are raised and paid for by a sponsored advert that displays below the answer. It's a simple but highly effective tool. With over 1.3 million registered players, the site has raised enough to feed over 5million people... so far.

 

The more people who play Freerice, the more we can achieve. So it would be great if you could share this as an effective edu-tool!

 

And it doesn't cost the player a cent, which means the average person who may not be able to donate, can take an active role in being part of the solution.

 

Food for thought, and thought for food...

"While reality can be scary, there are plenty of safe sites designed for kids under 13. Still, all the kid-friendly social networking sites in the world won’t help if kids find the adult versions more fun. We researched kid-friendly sites and then talked to kids to get a feel for the fun factor to collect four kid-approved sites."

Nine steps to quality online learning: Step 5: Master the technology

Nine steps to quality online learning: Step 5: Master the technology | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

In this post I argue that taking the time to be properly trained in how to use standard learning technologies will in the long run save you good deal of time and will enable you to achieve a much wider range of educational goals than you would otherwise have imagined..
This is the sixth in a series of 10 posts on designing quality online courses. The nine steps are aimed mainly at instructors who are new to online learning, or have tried online learning without much help or success. The first five posts (which should be read before this post) are:

Nine steps to quality online learning: introduction Nine steps to quality online learning: Step 1: Decide how you want to teach online Nine steps to quality online-learning: Step 2: Decide on what kind of online course Nine steps to quality online learning: Step 3: Work in a Team Nine steps to quality online learning: Step 4: Build on existing resources

A condensed version covering all the posts in this series can be found on the Contact North web site: What you need to know about teaching online: nine key steps‘.
