5 Good iPad Apps for Teaching Kids about Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Good iPad Apps for Teaching Kids about Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational technology | Scoop.it

"Teaching kids how to code is no brainer, there are now several digital platforms where learners get to learn everything about coding from the basics to the advanced levels and without having to pay a dime. I personally learned about HTML and CSS coding through an online website called W3schools and never had any course at school or paid anybody to teach me. I am not an HTML expert now but at least I can tweak my blog template, add widgets, write codes for tables, chart and several other commands."

I just read an article about a Boston independent school who have adopted coding classes as part of a graduation requirement. Is this starting to become a trend in K-12?
Sego's comment, August 28, 2013 4:08 AM
Sure, We probably need to replace the obsolete requirements by new trends like this.

A great list to get started with, I'm also going to use the programming lessons found at the Khan academy.

Social Bookmarking Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Social Bookmarking Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational technology | Scoop.it

"Social bookmarking is a new concept that has seen the light with the emergence of bookmarking services like the ones I cited below.Semantically speaking, ' social bookmarking' is made up of the the term " social " which is related to society and general interactions between people, and the verb " to bookmark " (used here as a gerund ending in ing) which has to do with recording and/or saving content for both later use and quick access. Weaving the semantic reference of the two words results in social bookmarking as we know it today : a collaborative and collective saving and sharing of web content."
