From Dabbling to Doing: 6 Tools That Excite Kids About Coding - MindShift

From Dabbling to Doing: 6 Tools That Excite Kids About Coding - MindShift | Chromebooks at School | Scoop.it
It’s clear coding and computer science have become key priorities in K-12 education. From Code.org’s massive round of funding and the formulation of the Computer Science Coalition to President Obama’s Computer Science For All initiative to big school districts, like the San Francisco Unified School District, building K-12 computer science curriculum – there’s indications that this is more than a passing fad.

Many educators are excited about the opportunities coding and computer science offer students, but with these new curricular priorities come the major practical, pedagogical challenges of building a scope and sequence and then transforming it into units and lessons (not to mention, you know, teaching). Given the problems computer science has had meeting the needs of all students — especially early on — there’s some tough challenges ahead for school leaders and educators to make sure computer science for all doesn’t fall flat.

9 Ways to Create Videos on Chromebooks

9 Ways to Create Videos on Chromebooks | Chromebooks at School | Scoop.it
A few weeks ago I wrote a post in which I shared eight good tools for creating videos on Chromebooks. The danger with making lists like that one is that I'm bound to forget something. In this case, I forgot to mention My Simpleshow which I started using last summer. (Disclosure: My Simpleshow started advertising on this blog a couple of months ago).

My Simpleshow is a free tool for creating Common Craft style explanatory videos. The best aspect of My Simpleshow is the emphasis that the developers have placed on storyline planing and development. As is demonstrated in my tutorial below, students have to write a script on My Simpleshow before they can begin to use the video editing tools.
