Coding in the Classroom: A Long-Overdue Inclusion

Coding in the Classroom: A Long-Overdue Inclusion | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

"One need not look to superstars such as Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates to justify reasons for using code and programming logic in the classroom. There's plenty of literature that illustrates its positive learning outcomes. Coding in the classroom is linked to improved problem solving and analytical reasoning, and students who develop a mastery of coding have a "natural ability and drive to construct, hypothesize, explore, experiment, evaluate, and draw conclusions.""

iOS 8.3 tips and tricks: See what your iPhone and iPad can do now - Pocket-lint | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
Apple has released iOS 8.3, it's biggest update yet to iOS 8 that was first launched alongside the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in September 2014.  

The new OS from Apple brings a host of new features, tips and tricks. We've worked our way through the phone operating system to try and bring you as many of the features as possible to allow you to get as much out of the latest software on your phone without having to upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

Most of these tips are new to iOS 8, but we've also included some gems from iOS 7 that you might not have found yet. We'll be keeping an eye on things as new updates roll out and if you've got any tips of your own that we've not covered please feel free to add them to the comments below.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 19, 7:25 PM

These 21st Century skills are important for all our students to acquire during their time in school so they are prepared for post-secondary success.  We must be willing to redesign traditional schooling in order to d velop theses skills in all our students.  Teaching content in silos unconnect d to other disciplines, adhering to room configurations where students are isolated from each other, and maintaining the lockstep confinement of bell,schedules and calendars will need to be revised so we can approach teaching in ways that gives collaboration, entrepreneurship, adaptability, communicati, innovation, etc. time and space needed for development.

How to record your iPad screen using QuickTime Player on your Mac | iPad Insight | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
While I was surfing around the internet the other day, I came across a procedure that allows you to record the screen of your iOS device using QuickTime Player on your Mac.  As someone who could really benefit from this feature for demonstrative purposes, my curiosity was definitely peaked.  Add to that the fact that it is built into every Mac running Yosemite and that it’s completely free, and I knew that some of you, too, would really appreciate knowing how it works.  Here’s a quick tutorial based upon Aaron Douglas’ Blog post on The Dangling Pointer.
