Accidental Discoveries When Teaching Coding with Geometry - @ECiardelli

Accidental Discoveries When Teaching Coding with Geometry - @ECiardelli | Coding in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Having used coding for this school year, it seems like there are so many teachable moments to use with my class that I did not know existed.  I want to outline three accidental discoveries while I was teaching geometry.

My Paperless Classroom: Primary Teachers: Learn Coding Fundamentals in an Hour

My Paperless Classroom: Primary Teachers: Learn Coding Fundamentals in an Hour | Coding in the Classroom | Scoop.it
If you have heard about the hour of code, I hope you saw this coming from the title. If you don't know about the hour of code, it is time. Code.org wants to support everybody everywhere in learning to code. They are organizing all kinds of people to create tutorials that can be used in schools to get kids coding, even if it is just for a one hour guided activity

Moeten we volgens mij allemaal aan geloven! Allemaal programmeren leren.

How To Start Integrating Coding Into Project Based Learning | Edudemic

How To Start Integrating Coding Into Project Based Learning | Edudemic | Coding in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"True Project Based Learning (PBL) challenges students to acquire deeper knowledge of a concept by establishing connections outside their classroom. According to the research on PBL, the main tenets are to create real world connections, develop critical thinking skills, foster structured collaboration, motivate student driven work, and enable a multifaceted approach.

 

Similarly, coding applies all of these core tenets as programs require logical thinking, team work, a variety of tools, and – most importantly – perseverance on the part of the student. Consider the potential of applying the challenges of coding to the proven successful tenets of PBL."

I tried unsuccessfully to start teaching programming to some of my students.  A lack of planning (unclear objectives) and knowledge on my part killed it quickly, but I learned from it.  I still believe that this is a worthwhile and necessary ambition.

Should Schools Treat Coding as a 'Basic Literacy'?

Should Schools Treat Coding as a 'Basic Literacy'? | Coding in the Classroom | Scoop.it
With many schools offering relatively little in the way of computer science course, a growing number of young students are turning to private coding programs.
