I teach grades K-6 in a Title One (low income) Elementary school. My students are taking a brand new technology course at our building to enhance their learning and to give them advantages in their future career paths. I am trying to introduce them to 3D design, coding, robotics, virtual reality and more but hate how they sit at a desk and try to work creatively while being only half engaged.
Technology will revolutionize my students learning experiences and provides them access to an unimaginable amount of new opportunities.
My students are proficient at using cell phones but they need to expand their use of technology to computer programming, digital labs, and coding. My goal is to have students broaden their use of technology and give them opportunities they wouldn't normally have. Technology is engaging and promotes positive interactions with classmates and instructors while also teaching responsibility.
These coding games will allow my younger students to get an interactive coding experience at a young age while having fun. Our students need to keep up with the latest technology advances and coding/programming is a skill set that will help them grow and broaden their horizons.
Coding Awbie and Coding Jam on the Osmo will give my students a fun learning experience while learning the basic steps to coding.
Once the students grasp the concept of what coding is by playing with these interactive resources, they can move on to more intricate coding websites using java script and python codes.
