As schools continue to maximize technology in the classroom, they have come to embrace mobile technology as part of the learning process. From iPads to smartphones, teachers have found ways to leverage iPads to enhance the learning experience, and improve their own teaching and productivity. In today's classrooms, apps have myriad uses and functionality for both teachers preparing their lessons and students during the learning experience. codeSpark Academy with the Foos, canva , dwolingo and edx.

7 End of the Year Activities for the iPad - Erintegration | The inquiring libraria | Scoop.it
Don’t forget to integrate technology into your last couple weeks of school by planning end of year activities to keep your students engaged!  I have some ideas on how you can use iPads to SAMR sail until the last day of school.

SAMR is an acronym I use when planning iPad activities in my classroom.

IT STANDS FOR SUBSTITUTE, AUGMENT, MODIFY, AND REDEFINE.

Ten Things That Happen When Kids Engage in Design Thinking – John Spencer

Ten Things That Happen When Kids Engage in Design Thinking – John Spencer | The inquiring libraria | Scoop.it
Creativity and innovation have become buzzwords in education (though not as quite as
trendy as hipster beards or skinny jeans). It’s easy to look at the maker movement and write it off as yet another trend in education. But what if it’s not just a trend? What if it’s an idea whose time has come?

For years, schools have been stuck in a one-size-fits-all factory model, where students passively consume content. But here’s the thing: kids aren’t widgets. While one-size-fits-all works great for socks, it’s not ideal for minds. Kids need to dream and wonder and imagine. They need to design and build and tinker.

This is why I love design thinking. It’s a flexible framework that guides students through specific phases in the creative process.

A Guide to Coding and Computational Thinking Across the Curriculum | K-6 Educational Resources | Board of Studies NSW

A Guide to Coding and Computational Thinking Across the Curriculum | K-6 Educational Resources | Board of Studies NSW | The inquiring libraria | Scoop.it
Computational thinking is the thought processes involved in formulating a problem and expressing its solution(s) in such a way that a computer – human or machine – can effectively carry out.

Informally, computational thinking describes the mental activity in formulating a problem to admit a computational solution.  The solution can be carried out by a human or machine. This latter point is important.  First, humans compute.  Second, people can learn computational thinking without a machine.  Also, computational thinking is not just about problem solving, but also about problem formulation.1

The Digital Careers organisation says that students need experience and skills in computational thinking and computer programming (coding) to be successful in their future careers.2 The NSW syllabuses provide a range of opportunities to develop students’ understanding of computational thinking and coding.

This guide draws out the areas where computational thinking can be applied within the existing NSW K–8 syllabuses. Like the syllabuses, it is organised into stages of learning and subdivided into learning areas, with suggested activities and links to online resources.

Not all resources and activities listed in this guide refer to coding explicitly, but they do aim to develop algorithmic and computational thinking skills to better enable students and teachers to reach a coding goal.

Rethinking The Question – krissy venosdale

Rethinking The Question – krissy venosdale | The inquiring libraria | Scoop.it
“What stuff should I buy?” 

With that one question, everyone wants the same thing.  A list of kits that they can use in their classrooms to create a makerspace.   And you know, it IS awesome that people are looking for ways to bring creativity into the classroom – really awesome.  But maybe we need to rethink the question we ask.  Making really isn’t about kits. In fact, kits are standardized and making is kind of the opposite of standardized.

Let’s rethink the “stuff to buy discussion” and dig deeper ourselves…

Heather Moorefield-Lang has witnessed the face of freshman terror when the first-year students walk into the college library at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, are confronted by two million books, and don’t know where to start.
Jan MacWatters's insight:
Good idea.  Kids often don't really understand why they need to cite correctly, but it's important to show them and make sure they understand before they get to college.
