EdSurge had put together a great guide, Teaching Kids to Code, that provides 14 posts that look at coding from a variety of perspectives and a table that lists 40 tools for learning online programming. The table is divided into sections which include learning coding with:

* apps

* hardware

* visual blocks

* formal coding language

Many of the suggested tools are free.

There are many who suggest that all students should learn to code. If you are interested in helping students learn to code or would like to learn about a variety of resources check out this post.

I followed the link through to https://www.edsurge.com/n/2013-05-13-heading-off-to-summer-coding-camp and was happy to see that iD Tech Camps was on the list! We love them. Jade went 2 years in a row and learned Flash, C+, Video Editing and more.

That's okay! I found it a great article that will help me keep in mind that technology needs to be used smartly and not necessarily to excess to help students learn to use and explore it.

This post provides the infographic that shows 18 myths about education. It also includes short explanations about research on each of the 18 myths (located under the infographic).

The editor also noted that some of these topics are "contentious." If you choose to respond to any of them here or on the original post please use civil language.
