iPads in Primary Education - Apps for Computer Science

iPads in Primary Education - Apps for Computer Science | Apps in the CEO | Scoop.it

"As part of the proposed new draft primary curriculum for ICT, there is a significant emphasis on computer science. Below I've included a selection of apps which can be used in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The apps included range from basic skills in coding a Beebot to more advanced skills in coding games and simulations in apps such as Hopscotch and Codea."

29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit

29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit | Apps in the CEO | Scoop.it

"

At TeachThought, we often provide lists of digital resources, and many of them are apps.

 

Apps for struggling readers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/50-popular-ipad-apps-for-struggling-readers-writers/

 

Apps for struggling writers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/41-resources-tools-and-apps-to-improve-writing-skills/

 

Apps for project-based learning. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/10-apps-for-more-organized-project-based-learning/

 

Any while many of these apps are for students, the following list of apps from Sam Gliksman can be considered for both teachers and students, and an excellent foundation slew of apps for any 21st century teacher. From GoodReader and Slide Shark to Printopia and Air Display, all fill different niches of 21st century learning, and the many possibilities the iPad affords."
