How Turning Math Into a Maker Workshop Can Bring Calculations to Life - Mind/Shift

How Turning Math Into a Maker Workshop Can Bring Calculations to Life - Mind/Shift | talkprimaryICT | Scoop.it
It might have been the banana piano. Or perhaps the bongos, made from lemons that students had plucked from the citrus tree at school. Elizabeth Little, who teaches middle school math and science, doesn’t know exactly which of the hands-on projects she introduced to her remedial math class turned the class around. But by the end of the school year, all her math students, not just those needing extra support, were clamoring for more math.

How did this happen?

Code-a-pillar - a caterpillar that teaches code!

Code-a-pillar - a caterpillar that teaches code! | talkprimaryICT | Scoop.it

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-a-pillar coming soon. Watch the video to learn more....

Code-a-pillar was unveiled at CES 2016 - its a toy caterpillar that aims to teach coding basics to toddlers.

talkPrimaryICT's insight:

 

The idea behind the Code-a-Pillar is to teach fundamental programming concepts to young children by breaking them down into eight segments, each of which has a different command icon that controls how the toy moves or acts (forward, left, turn, generate a noise, etc). When turned on, the toy scans these segments ‘programmed’ by the child, determines the order of actions and the caterpillar moves according to its “programming.”

The Code-a-Pillar is designed for three- to eight-year-old children and an app for the older ones allows them to advance program it. It should hit the stores in the US stores in June and the set with all eight segments will cost $50.

Flipped Learning: Using online video to transform learning | Nesta

Flipped Learning: Using online video to transform learning | Nesta | talkprimaryICT | Scoop.it

 

Nesta and NFER carried out a study to explore how this approach can work in secondary maths classrooms across the UK, and how teachers use it to change the approaches to learning students take. We saw teachers use the approach to encourage students to take active responsibility for their learning, and for some to use it to accelerate their learning.

This project has produced a research report delving into the effects of Flipped Learning and the conditions needed for success. For those focused on classroom practice, we have also created a research-based practitioner guide to the approach, and a specific how-to guide for using resources from the Khan Academy and linking them to the UK curricula.
