The Most Popular Websites | eBizMBA Resources to Help You Choose the Digital Tools Your Classroom Needs For educators, the growing number of digital tools for the classroom is something of a mixed blessing. “There are so many digital resources out there, I am lost as to which ones are good,” one teacher told us. Said another, “I am always excited to learn about new technology, but overwhelmed at how much there is out there. It is hard to find time to research it all, especially all the new education apps.” At the Gates Foundation, we are seeing growing confidence in the quality and usefulness of digital tools as more teachers tap into technology, as well as an increasing need for information that helps educators wade through the many options available to them. In our most recent survey of 3,100 K-12 teachers, nearly six in 10 believe that the digital tools they use frequently are effective, an increase of 5 points in two years.
Activity Book We live in a society characterised with an overwhelming presence of modern technological devices, allowing distance between people to fade and leading to the existence of a second, online world. As children these days grow up in this digitised environment, they become accustomed to and aware of their presence from a very young age. Most kindergarten and preschool curricula do not include lessons on modern technology; therefore this book aims at introducing concepts of modern technology in their daily vocabulary and activities. Whilst this activity book offers children from 4 to 8 years of age 30 pages of fun and games, it also leads them to sharpen their basic language and mathematical, social and cultural skills. It gives them a glimpse of the impact modern technology can have on their everyday life. Above all it offers an opportunity for parents and teachers to sit together with their children and discuss these important issues.

Code.org Launches Code Studio, A Toolset And Curriculum For Teaching Kids Programming Since its creation, Code.org‘s mission has been to get coding into curriculums for students as schools nationwide. Today, the nonprofit group is launching Code Studio, a combined set of tools and curriculum to get students in kindergarten through high school interested in the underlying concepts behind coding through guided lesson plans. Rather than having kids pick up a language like Python or Java (as you would in a college or AP Computer Science class), Code Studio teaches the underlying concepts in programming through the manipulation of blocks of logic that, when stacked together in a particular order, move a character around a scene or draw a shape. The interface works a lot like MIT’s Scratch, though Code.org director of product Mona Akmal told me over a Google Hangout that there are a few key difference’s between MIT’s offering and Code Studio, chief among them the use of HTML5 (so it can run in most browsers) and the puzzle-based lesson plans for K-12 students.
