Let the kids use their phones in class | Teacher Network | The Guardian - 2 views

    Interesting article from the Guardian. "The effect of banning mobiles was the equivalent of an extra week's schooling over the academic year, according to the research. It also found that the ban had a greater positive impact on students with special education needs and those eligible for free school meals."

Wear Audio - Record Audio on Your Android Phone or Watch | Android 4 Schools - 4 views

  •  
    "One of the features of Wear Audio is the ability to adjust the recording quality settings. On Wear Audio you can adjust the audio gain, enable noise and echo suppression, and adjust the audio compression settings.
    If you're looking for an audio recording app that students can use without having to create and remember yet another password, Wear Audio might be the way to go. Students could use the app to record short reflections on what they learned during the week or perhaps start a podcast that they could even publish."

Teaching Kids to Code - Teachers With Apps - 3 views

  •  
    No one who is part of this new movement believes all kids should grow up to be programmers. We believe it would be a beautiful outcome if all kids grew up knowing how to use computers to enhance their natural abilities, whatever those are, and grew up with the confidence to be "makers" instead of just consumers. Computer programming is ultimately about problem solving and creating. "Thinking like a computer scientist" really means understanding what problem you are facing and breaking down that problem into solvable chunks. The better you get at recognizing the problem the more efficient your solutions become."

Shift to anonymous apps creates new school challenges | District Administration Magazine - 0 views

  •  
    "Parents have taken over Facebook and, to a lesser extent, Twitter. This has sent device-laden students flocking to social media apps such as Instagram, SnapChat and Yik Yak, and the shift has created new challenges for administrators trying to root out cyberbullying and threats of violence. Garnering the most concern in many districts is Yik Yak, a free app created in 2013 that connects users within a 10-mile radius to a message board, and allows anyone to read and post anonymously. The app, meant for college students, is blocked on most K12 campuses thanks to technology called geofencing."
