Vivalist's curator insight, December 7, 2014 4:02 PM

yet another list of great tools to teach computer programming to kids. Good resources there.

 

I tried some of the hour of code exercises with my 6years old and it's great... she gets it right away and the benefits are instantaenous. She felt "empowered" and pride of her achievment. Very well designed so kids are never overwhelmed by info and instructions.

Marta Ciesielska's curator insight, December 8, 2014 4:11 AM

Maybe not exactly about design abilities, but interesting thing about eLearning how to code.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, December 8, 2014 9:11 AM

I hope you are celebrating this week with students you know - young or old.  If you are a business, I hope you find a way to connect with a local school to encourage them to participate in this endeavor.

Problem solving @SmartBrief

When it’s a bright, sunny day outside, should I wear a black or a white t-shirt to stay cool?  What an easy question, right? I was reformulating my engineering lesson on space suits to share at the ISTE conference this year when this question surfaced. After all, astronauts have the same dilemma, right?

Or to see students leave school at the end of the term and describe themselves as Skillful, Passionate, and Humble? Or have students working hard to make communities happier?
