Review: Secret Science Alliance | The Beguiling Books & Art

Review: Secret Science Alliance | The Beguiling Books & Art | Technology To Teach | Scoop.it

Try telling someone the best thing you read all year was a children’s comic book called The Secret Science Alliance and The Copycat Crook and watch how quickly you become telepathic.  In the twenty or so times I’ve mentioned this to people since 2009, I swear, I can actually hear, “who’s this ding-a-ling” pulsating out of their brain.  Four years later, I’m still that same dame-a-ling, but I’m also still that impressed with Eleanor Davis’ astonishing kid’s adventure comic that, apparently, everyone except the good people of the Illinois State Media Library (who gave it their Bluestem Award) dismissed simply because it was a kid’s comic.

iPads in Primary Education: Apps for Computer Science

iPads in Primary Education: Apps for Computer Science | Technology To Teach | Scoop.it

"As part of the proposed new draft primary curriculum for ICT, there is a significant emphasis on computer science. Below I've included a selection of apps which can be used in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The apps included range from basic skills in coding a Beebot to more advanced skills in coding games and simulations in apps such as Hopscotch and Codea.


I've also included some other useful 'ICT' apps, which can be used to develop pupil's typing skills and Spreadsheet skills."

"Many of my posts look at ways to use the iPads in Literacy and Numeracy to enhance learning and engage, motivate and inspire children. But how can using the iPad also help children in other subjects like Science, History or Geography? Here are some ideas about how using the iPad can help the children show, share and develop their learning in these subjects with a distinct focus on Science."

Rachel Solomon's curator insight, December 3, 2013 10:45 AM

I think this is a really good article because it is written by a teacher, and he explains certain pieces of technology that "changed his teaching practice." This article could be very helpful to current teachers, as well as aspiring ones. Technology is very important now in our society and is becoming increasingly important in the classroom. It is important for teachers to know how to utilize all of these different pieces of technology. 

Danielle Delgado's curator insight, January 21, 6:54 AM

There's a lot of lists out there, but what I like about this one is that it gives you a lot of food for thought on the lack of usefulness of some tools.

iPads in Primary Education: Changing the Pedagogy: Independent Learning in Science

iPads in Primary Education: Changing the Pedagogy: Independent Learning in Science | Technology To Teach | Scoop.it

"Pupils in year 6 have been using iPods since September on a 1:1 basis with a focus on using the technology to support learning, develop productivity, independence and impact on pupil progress across the curriculum. The devices haven’t been used for everything, but are available as a tool to enhance the learning for any given task. Alongside this there have also been frequent daily occasions when the best tool for the job has been: pencil and paper, scissors and glue, laptop and printer, a good book and silence. The role of the device was made clear to pupils, parents and staff at the beginning of the year and the planned outcome has always been to use the technology, if it was the best tool for the job to enhance learning."
