Thought I would share a bit about Thursday Keyboarding sessions. Students keyboard for 30 minutes, then, as you will see in today’s video, have time to try different apps, work on projects of choice or investigate materials in the technology lab. New students start with Dance Mat Typing, then they move on to the school edition of Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing.
This is only the 2nd Tuesday of the session, but the students have already settled in quite nicely. It is so beautiful to observe the children as they help each other invent, create and learn. Here are some photos from weeks 1 and 2 of Tuesday WeDo Robotics.
Before I go off to BIG NIGHT, I want to post this short video from day one of Animation Station. Students usually start off working with document cameras and the HUE Animation software, but you will see some returning students using Scratch or Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.
It’s only Thursday, but wanted to take a moment to welcome you all to Session III. I will post regularly, if I can. The pictures below are from Technology Explorers. You can see students building the littleBits Droid, assembling the Piper computer from scratch, and one student using a working Piper from Session II.
I had finished sorting through the robotics materials, and was just about to set up my subscriber list for Session III, when I realized there was one more video that I wanted to share. This video shows 3rd and 4th grade students building, then working on, their Piper computer, as well as two 1st grade girls flying Parrot Mini drones for the very first time!
