Teaching Coding: Where Do You Start? (EdSurge News)

Teaching Coding: Where Do You Start? (EdSurge News) | Connected | Scoop.it
By Sheena Vaidyanathan "I suggest starting with what Papert used--Logo. I recommend using any version of Logo (there are many to choose from) or doing a Logo-like project with your chosen programming tool. I have done this in my classes and it works. My students are engaged and excited when they are controlling a turtle on the screen--the magic described in Mindstorms by Papert still works more than 40 years later. Kids are, after all, the same. As a first programming lesson, I have used the very well-designed ACS Logo on the Macs. I have also used MIT’s Scratch (using the Scratch cat and pen commands) and now more recently Tynker (using their turtle image and built in lesson plan). In each case, my students were caught up with their first coding experience, giving commands to draw patterns on the screen. Here is a link to some of my student’s first programs in ACSLogo, in Scratch and also in Tynker."

40 Tools to Learn Coding: Teaching Kids to Code (EdSurge Guides) | Connected | Scoop.it
There are endless ways to learn programming available online. We've selected our favorite 40 tools to get you started. Whether you're a complete tyro, robot-hacking hands-on learner, or a 'leet coder looking for advanced training, you'll find something to help you hone your skills. "Math Prerequisite" indicates the amount of math a student should know to make the most of a tool: Elementary, Middle, and High School and above. "Prep Time" is relative: some products require hardware setup, user authentication, and lesson planning while others are browser-based and ready to go. Prices (as of May 2013) are as indicated, with any extra fees noted in a product's description."

7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills - Edutopia

7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills - Edutopia | Connected | Scoop.it
"It's hard to imagine a single career that doesn't have a need for someone who can code. Everything that "just works" has some type of code that makes it run. Coding (a.k.a. programming) is all around us. That's why all the cool kids are coding . . . or should be. Programming is not just the province of pale twenty-somethings in skinny jeans, hunched over three monitors, swigging Red Bull. Not any more! The newest pint-sized coders have just begun elementary school."
