A Block Graphic Calculator

Have you considered a different option? What about a block graphic calculator? This now a common way to teach coding, having students connect blocks together to build code.

This type of calculator may help visual learners who may more easily create formulas through the use of blocks. Check it out at Blockly.

This TED-Ed video explains how a computer works in simple terms. I suspect that children in early elementary would learn from it as would many students in upper elementary and middle school. Although technology is prevalent in their lives many have no concept of what is happening inside a digital device. This video will help them learn, and since it is from TED-Ed there is a quiz and the ability to flip the video!

Nice to know how those things "under the hood" really work.
