38 Of The Best Elementary Learning Apps For Students - TeachThought | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

The following listly collection from sometimes-TeachThought contributor Sam Gliksman is an excellent starting point for elementary teachers looking for elementary apps for elementary students in the most elementary way possible: a collection of 38 possibilities, all embedded in your favorite blog whose name is a compound word. As usual, Gliksman’s experience with iPads in education yields a wonderfully diverse collection of apps, from games to digital media software to math and literacy apps."

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Hopscotch Challenges: A Free Curriculum eBook for iPad Coders | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"This week I started introducing my 4th and 5th grade STEM students to coding with the free iPad app, Hopscotch. I was not able to find a set of “challenges” with Hopscotch to use in my lessons, so I wrote and published a short eBook that I’ve titled, “Hopscotch Challenges.” You can download it (FREE) in ePUB format from my DropBox account. Please check it out, share feedback as comments here or on Twitter (@wfryer), and submit additional ideas for challenges to add to the eBook using the Google form I included in it.
