Coding with Paper: Printable Space Race Game for Students - Fractus Learning | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
There are thousands of different ways to introduce programming to your class in fun and interactive ways for the upcoming Hour of Code (December 8-14). While most apps and tutorials do require internet connected computers or mobile devices, it does not mean that schools without this level of technology cannot get involved. In fact, coding with paper can be an even more engaging and meaningful way to introduce students to early programming concepts.

Coding is a skill of logic, maths and language every bit as much as computers and technology. The low-tech options here suit most schools.

iPaddling through Fourth Grade-Encourage...Engage...Enlighten...Empower: Coding in the Elementary Classroom

iPaddling through Fourth Grade-Encourage...Engage...Enlighten...Empower: Coding in the Elementary Classroom | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Over the course of the weeks not only did my students learn how to code, but they learned so many important life-skills.  Students participated in "Plugged" and Unplugged" activities.  Months ago, I took a code.org class which was a turning point in my "World of Code". With some guidance and little help, my students began their journey into coding and programming.

What did my students learn?


     * Persistence
     * Collaboration
     * Problem Solving
     * Logical Reasoning
     * Critical Thinking
     * Cause and Effect
     * Being Inquisitive
     * Communication Skills
     * Having Fun

Carly Pechal's curator insight, September 24, 2015 11:20 PM

Gaming and Coding as most of us know is becoming a more regularly integrated part of education to promote learning, but why? Advanced thinking skills are needed to learn programing, think of all of the careers available with this requirement. Based on starting this integrating in education to students at a young age in the form of a games promotes this stimulating thought process. When incorporating content or the knowledge of an activity in a technological format it reduces the lack of interest and promotes it. While some look at it as a fun activity, other see it as a contest, either way, the students are engaged and learning the foundation of a concept that can land them admired skills. Based on this applications listed, there are multiple options for this skill to be reached in education. Looking at elementariness "Hour of Code," many of these apps can and are used during it as well as some are free.
