Hagan and I have been having so much fun learning more about coding.
There are several apps that can be used but we really love one that we downloaded on our iPad this last weekend. This one is new to us, but definitely not a new coding program or resource. It is from the people at Tynker.Tynker, along with several other websites and apps.
Coding. Coding. Coding. Symbaloo webmix and continue to add to and update this one. You can share this with your students and school community too.
paid version for $4.99.
This is the second year we have celebrated Hour of Code. This year it is being held December 8-14. You can sign up and get connected to so many resources on the website.
There are various companies who have included free resources for Hour of Code....Tynker is one of them. Just wait until you see all of the activities they have included for our students to use when learning to code. They are awesome!
Yesterday one of my friends shared an interesting article on my Facebook.... There's One Skill Worth More Than A Harvard Degree....And Anyone Can Learn It. This is such an important skill for our young people to learn and embrace. It is something that they all love and one that will prove to be important in their future.
With the excitement and importance around these materials, it is so much fun developing activities for integrating eBooks and one of my favorite things to do as a teacher librarian.
This week I have the honor of presenting for SimpleK12 about this topic.
And better yet.....As a member of my PLN, you can log into my webinar for FREE! Typically this webinar would be closed to members of the SimpleK12 Community only, but I have the amazing opportunity to make it open for my very special PLN.
You can register at this link.
I can't wait to share my ideas with all of you!
