Great learning platform.

Juan Camilo Largo's curator insight, September 1, 2017 12:45 PM
Kiddom is a website recommended by Nik Peachey for several reasons. First, it enhances the planning and performance of classes by putting all your materials in the same place, which works similar to a cloud. It also allows you to create a class environment online. Therefore, you are able to adjust the setting for the class you want to create and adapt it to the courses you will add to the platform. It has the option to select the subject, grade, and students when you are creating the class. In addition to it, Kiddom offers you the possibility to analize your students' learning process through easy diagrams and statistics. Those are some of the great features that we can take advantage of when using Kiddom.

Word Booster

Word Booster | Nader's Scoops | Scoop.it

It gives you a list of words you are likely to look up in the dictionary as far as the given text is concerned, guesses a good dictionary definition for the words along with example sentences. And finally, it also makes a quiz for the words using both the definitions and example sentences. (Of course we give you the answer key too.)

If you like them, you can make your own quiz from any Youtube or Vimeo video here on iSLCollective (Click here or on the Upload menu). It takes 5 minutes to learn to use the quiz maker, and about 0.5-1 hour to finish a quiz.

15 free games that will help you learn how to code | Nader's Scoops | Scoop.it


"Online learning has come a long way in the last few years.Flickr/Laurie Sullivan

When I started learning to code, the options were limited—lots of books (not even e-books), some very basic online tutorials, and a whole lot of experimentation.

Online learning has come a long way in the last few years. There are interactive courses, tons of online tutorials, and one of my personal favorite ways to practice coding: games.

While a game alone probably isn’t going to teach you everything you need to know about coding, it can be a really incredible way to practice the skills you’re learning. It makes practice fun. And if you’re anything like me, you might suddenly realize you’ve spent the last four hours reinforcing your coding skills without even realizing it.

I’ve tried out some of the most entertaining and useful games for learning to code. Check out my favorites below. "
