Hopscotch iPad app looks to teach building blocks of coding to girls

Hopscotch iPad app looks to teach building blocks of coding to girls | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Rather than making young people wade through incomprehensible strings of words and numbers, writing code in Hopscotch consists of dragging and dropping different cute characters and running scripts on them.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here's something we need most even more than algebra. Girls and Boys that can code are in high demand for awhile.

This free app for the iPad will help students learn how to code! It is geared to students between the ages of 8 and 12. Using drag and drop students should be able to create games and animations. 

A ongoing debate in education is around the issue of teaching programming to students. This app may provide opportunities for students to begin to explore the concept of programming easily.

Coding and girls! Yes, they can go together folks!

 

Cath Parker's curator insight, April 21, 2013 2:36 AM

Another programme to make coding accessible.

iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad

iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

An in-depth study that took place in Scotland, looking at "issues associated with the deployment of personal mobile devices as tools for teaching and learning."
Four themes were identified:

* How tablet devices impacted teaching and learning?

* Leadership and management issues

* Parental engagement

* Professional development and learning for teachers

The post lists six headlines from the study, including (quoting):

* The adoption of mobile technologies on a personal basis significantly increases access to technology for students, both inside and beyond school, with many attendant benefits for learning which include greater motivation, engagement, parental involvement, and understanding of complex ideas.

 * Teachers are equally engaged by the use of a device like the iPad which has a low learning curve enabling them to use it immediately as a teaching tool and a learning tool for themselves.

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

iPads are "wondrous little devices capable of enchanting learners for hours, to get the learning results you’re likely after will take planning, design, and reflection."

This post discusses four areas of instruction and instructional design that will help you integrate iPad in the classroom. The four areas are each followed by three bullet points. See each area below, with one of the bullet points listed. Click through to the article for more information.

* Curriculum is Adaptive (as in less rigid). There are "Learning pathways, embedded differentiation and personalization, culturally and cognitively responsive tasks and work that honors constructivist thinking and doing over passivity and compliance."

* Instruction is diverse (as in less uniform).  "With access to a nearly infinite number of digital domains, instruction will have to adapt in parallel, including peer-to-peer, student-to-student, school-to-school learning; mastery-based learning via apps such as the Khan Academy."

* Assessment is Frequent and Formative (as in less intermittent and summative). "A climate of assessment that yields simple data digestible to all stakeholders–including the teacher."

* Integrated with Relevant Communities (as in purely academic, or forced, awkward audiences–for the love of everything, please no more letters to the principals). Digital, Physical, Local, Global
