It's hard to imagine a single career that doesn't have a need for someone who can code. Everything that "just works" has some type of code that makes it run. Coding (a.k.a. programming) is all around us. That's why all the cool kids are coding . . . or should be. Programming is not just the province of pale twenty-somethings in skinny jeans, hunched over three monitors, swigging Red Bull.

If you're concerned that that a) elementary school students don't have the ability to code, b) there's no room in the curriculum, and c) you don't possess coding chops to teach programming skills, throw out those worries. In no particular order, we have listed all the coding apps that are appropriate for young learners.

Game Developers Experiment With More Open-Ended Apps. A new group of developers is trying to tackle the educational app market, which has huge potential for profits, but has been hard to crack because of parent and teacher skepticism about what’s actually considered educational.

Zynga, an established commercial game company responsible for hits like Farmville and Words with Friends, is hosting the non-profit accelerator in its building. Now in its second cohort, Zynga’s co.lab offers nascent game developers access to advice from experienced game, marketing and product experts. The co.lab’s first group of developers, which included the hit game Motion Math, worked mostly on games with a clear focus on math or reading, but this group is interpreting the definition of education a bit more broadly and attempting more open-ended learning outcomes.

Mrs.Wideen's Blog: Tips and Tricks for Creating Authentic iPad Learning Stations for Primary Students. A few weeks ago, I did a workshop on Creating Authentic iPad Learning Stations for Primary Students. I thought I would share some of the things that I spoke about and some of the key points that I tried to get across in my workshop. First, an iPad Station does not consist of handing a child an iPad, putting them on an app and letting them click away.

Come on people, aren’t we past this by now? In the past, I have had colleagues come ask me if they can use the iPads in my room the following period. When I replied yes, their next question was, “What apps do you have on them?” WHAT!? Integrating technology doesn’t mean that you hand a child an iPad for a period because you have nothing planned.
