via erased4838853 in reply to reesegans

@reesegans that’s a gr8 idea, but in Chicago I’d guess you have a full-blown Maker Faire? @MsMagiera would have good ideas 4 you!

@usabbs that sounds good… I’ll check it out further than. Thanks! @Tynker

via erased4838853 in reply to usabbs

Has anyone helped Ss create mobile apps with GameSalad or other software programs yet?

via erased4838853

@usabbs what benefits/advantages to you see @Tynker having over Scratch? @teachkiwi

via erased4838853 in reply to usabbs

@ganttgangbeth that is super! Please let me know what you & your students end up creating/doing with the ideas! :-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ganttgangbeth

@teachkiwi I’ve looked at @Tynker but am not convinced it has any advantages over Scratch, which is free… Are you?

via erased4838853 in reply to teachkiwi

A3 I lik presenting Ss with basic challenges, like drawing geometric pictures & creating simple tilt collide games w @hopscotch

via erased4838853

@reesegans that is gr8! Are there Scratch-based conference in Texas anywhere this summer?

via erased4838853 in reply to reesegans

@TechnologyTym it’s exciting to see how creative Ss can be with the relatively limited block options of @hopscotch !

via erased4838853 in reply to TechnologyTym

Is anyone going to the Scratch Conference at MIT Aug 6-9? @sfryer & I are considering it scratch.mit.edu/conference/

via erased4838853

@nathan_stevens @valibrarian Is it true all TX high schools now recognize computer programming classes as = to foreign language?

via erased4838853 in reply to nathan_stevens

@rrisdpd I think the best way is showing Ts examples of what Ss can create as coders, like diverse Scratch projects

via erased4838853 in reply to rrisdpd

A1 Coding is a gr8 example of how some things that are very important & need emphasis aren’t part of the formal curriculum

via erased4838853

A1 Coding is important because it allows a change in computational agency: The computer as “tutee” not tool or tutor…

via erased4838853

A1 Coding is something all students should be exposed to & have opportunities to try. Not every teacher needs to integrate it tho

@wmchamberlain we did discuss how the Coca-Cola “open happiness” ads are essentially like “happiness milk”

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@wmchamberlain yes.. Lose Weight Milk, Fresh Breath Milk, Good Looking Milk, Happiness Milk, Money Milk…

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@wmchamberlain no, just the illusory hope of someday having them…

via Hootsuite in reply to wmchamberlain

@lindayollis I didn’t see a commenting option - that is definitely a disadvantage. We should request that from the developers!
