6 Inspiring Websites That Teach You To Code | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
If you've always had a desire to build your own apps or create your own websites, then you can begin your coding education with nothing more than a browser, an internet connection, and some spare time. Here we've picked out six of the best resources currently available online.
Lee Hall's insight:

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, March 26, 11:48 PM

I've always been a bit squeemish about developing my own apps or creating my own personalized websites.  After reviewing the six sites suggested in this post, I feel coding can be learned with some effort. Besides, one feels a sense of pride in developing something that works and in helping  make your time on the Internet more efficient and productive.  It seems I'll become a "student" very soon.  Aloha, Russ.

Boy Oh Boy, Christmas Has Come Early For Teachers With The New StoryCorps Mobile App! - @LarryFerlazzo

Boy Oh Boy, Christmas Has Come Early For Teachers With The New StoryCorps Mobile App! - @LarryFerlazzo | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Anyone who’s every listened to NPR is probably familiar with StoryCorps, and I’ve published several posts sharing their resources.

 

They just unveiled a new free mobile app at the TED Conference that allows anyone to record an interview with anyone and upload it their new site, StoryCorps.me. They have both iPhone and Android versions, and they’re great!


The app provides multiple suggestions for questions, depending on who you are interviewing (you can also add your own). It’s a perfect tool for having students interview their parents, grandparents or other older family members (which also makes it easy to ensure students have parental consent — by the way, their policy states users must be over 13). It’s super-simple to use. Of course, classmates could also interview others, as long as teachers had parental permission."

Data is crucial. However, displaying a chunk of plain data can be monotonous. Infographics visualize plain data and make it visually more appealing. Data turned into infographic has a higher potential to go viral and be effective. While many of us are designers who can design amazing infographs, Infographic Generators can come in handy to Designers and non-designers alike. They can be a time saving resource.
