Teaching Kids to Code (EdSurge Guides)

Teaching Kids to Code (EdSurge Guides) | Fun with Edmodo | Scoop.it

"Every era demands--and rewards--different skills.

 

In different times and different places, we have taught our children to grow vegetables, build a house, forge a sword or blow a delicate glass, bake bread, create a soufflé, write a story or shoot hoops.

 

Now we are teaching them to code.

 

We are teaching them to code, however, not so much as an end in itself but because our world has morphed: so many of the things we once did with elements such as fire and iron, or tools such as pencil and paper, are now wrought in code. We are teaching coding to help our kids craft their future."

Sir Ken Robinson – Learning {Re}imagined (video)

Sir Ken Robinson – Learning {Re}imagined (video) | Fun with Edmodo | Scoop.it
As a treat for the readers of this blog here is a longer and more complete interview with Sir Ken Robinson that was recorded as part of the Learning {Re}imagined book where he discusses educational technology, creativity, assessment and the future of learning (15 minutes).   There are more exclusive videos contained within the book…

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, March 26, 2015 7:02 PM

I have a great admiration for the thinking of Sir Ken Robinson... He speaks so eloquently and argues for creative learning...and so much more...

 

A stand out quote for me from this interview;

 

"What tends to dull the appetite [for learning] is being force fed things that people can't see an immediately relevance in or don't have an immediate interest in it...or where they are forced to learn in situations where they are inimitable... you know, 8 hours a day, sit still, do as you're told."

 

Bring on different ways of engaging with people around learning so that they not only 'get it' but they really enjoy it and become life long learners.

 

I recommend this 15 minute video to you!

8 End-of-Year Questions To Ask Students About iPads - Mind/Shift | Fun with Edmodo | Scoop.it

"As the school year heads into the final days and weeks, now’s the perfect opportunity to gather feedback from students about their use of iPads. Taking the time to construct a thoughtful survey that will elicit helpful feedback can help set the stage for professional development, program enhancements, and more thoughtful steps into using the devices.

 

Here are eight key questions to ask:"

Great question about creation or consumption. 

Rocio Watkins's curator insight, June 11, 2014 11:44 AM

Student input is one of the best qualitative voices in schools.  Great questions.

Paula Jamieson's curator insight, August 5, 2014 4:54 PM

This got me thinking as I am constantly gathering feedback from teachers but not capturing student voice as often.

Edcanvas + Edmodo = Better Learning

Edcanvas + Edmodo = Better Learning | Fun with Edmodo | Scoop.it
We have brought the fun and ease of Edcanvas to Edmodo! What’s a better way to introduce the free app than a guest blog from a fellow Edmodo Ambassador, Kristina Holzweiss:


Are you looking for a website where your students can organize their research and annotate websites without an email? 


Do you need to create a hotlist for your students so you can minimize search time to provide more time to read and analyze?


Would you like to manage all of your students’ projects onto one location so that you can easily access and view their work?


I can’t believe that Edcanvas does all of this for free!


My students have used Edcanvas to organize research for their National History Day projects, collect favorite cupcake recipes, and organize their favorite athletes.  It’s so fun, easy, and visually-appealing that your students will actually forget that they are learning.  As a school library media specialist, I have used Edcanvas in conjunction with other web tools to help science teachers create an online unit about endangered animals.  Late one night, a colleague sent me an email that she was having problems with organizing links about the periodic table on another site.  It was an emergency since she team taught with a science teacher who was home because his wife had just delivered a baby.  My colleague sent me the sites and I added some of my own to create a hotlist on the periodic table so easy for his substitute teacher to navigate. I have been an Edcanvas addict since I first learned about this web tool on Edmodo.  The Edcanvas app on Edmodo will make a simple solution even easier for teachers and students to understand and use.  I only wish I had this tool when I was a kid!





Kristina Holzweiss is certified English teacher, school library media specialist, educational technologist, and professional developer with over 18 years of teaching experience. You can connect with her on Edmodo and follow her on Twitter at @lieberrian

Code and programming may not be the most important topics on the planet but it is an area of study that sufferers two major problems. one: an industry with millions of unfilled job positions and two: a world where not enough teachers feel confident to run programming projects. The iPad can offer a solution in these situations.
