LeaderTalk: My Apple Basket - A Personal Wellness Story for Teacher Leaders - 2 views

  •  
    "A story I like to tell to get teachers thinking about managing their personal wellness is one I've come to call "My Apple Basket". Every day we carry an invisible apple basket around with us. In it we carry all our "apples", those positive energies we have collected through the things we do for ourselves each day to contribute to our personal wellness. There's the apple for the exercise session I did this morning, the good night's sleep, the healthy breakfast, the time spent in reflection, the one for time spent with family, friends and significant others. You get the idea. If we do things wisely our basket should be getting filled each day."

​Apple's Swift Playgrounds app will lure your kid into coding - CNET - 2 views

  •  
    ""This is cool."

    With those three words from my 11-year-old son, I knew Apple had a hit on its hands with Swift Playgrounds, its iPad app for learning the company's Swift programming language. We didn't exactly have to pry him away, but he had reached that just-one-more-level-before-dinner type of self-motivation that warms an educator's heart.

    The app is free. So when Apple releases Swift Playgrounds on Tuesday in the App Store, I recommend giving it a try. It's geared for middle school kids, but adults can learn too -- it sucked me in. You'll need Apple's new iOS 10 software, also arriving Tuesday. And just so you know, some older iPads like the first-generation iPad Mini can't run it."

    "Apple believes that everyone can code, according to the latest initiative the company has launched. 

    While "Hello iPhone 7, goodbye phone jack" is what a lot of the world is saying at the moment, educators might be more interested in Apple's latest foray into computer science education with the "Everyone Can Code" initiative. As part of its ConnectED promise, Apple will bring coding education to schools, all related to its homegrown programming language Swift. "

    "iOS 10 won't be out until the fall, but Apple has released the first preview for developers. Regular users will be able to install a beta later this summer. I got to load up the preview version on one of my test devices and take it for a spin. 

    I have to say, I'm impressed with how much feels new in iOS 10. Visually, there are a ton of enhancements."
