Fearing the worst, I subjected myself to supervising his gaming. For the first few months, I couldn’t understand the obession with it but now I get it … well I think I do.

Code Avengers | Code Avengers Kids must code on iPads An important 21st Century skill This post is about a topic and app close to my heart. Computer programming is the engine of modern life and dream maker for tens of thousands. What learning to code offers young people. Even I was surprised at how much my students have enjoyed their first experience of coding this year. Accessible to anyone Coding is problem solving and like any puzzle, it seems to immediately engage kids as long as the puzzle pieces are easy to play with and move around. Quick & keen My colleague and I had written a typical coding introduction for our 12 & 13 year olds using Hopscotch but very quickly realised that the app negated traditional approaches as it was so intuitive. “Let’s make Flappy Birds!” Within the first hour, a 12-year-old had already realised the the ‘world issue’ that was “the death of Flappy Birds” could be solved with Hopscotch.

Gamestar Mechanic How to Grow a Thriving Indoor Apartment Garden Is lack of expansive outdoor space the only factor that is preventing you from putting your green thumb to good use? Even if your tiny apartment doesn't come with a balcony or an outdoor patio, you can grow a number of green things within the limited confines of your indoor space for your visual and gustatory pleasure. Sunny windowsills are perfect for growing herbs and small vegetables. Empty walls can be used to install vertical planters, and ceilings can even be taken advantage of to install hanging or upside-down planters. If you are a complete beginner and want to start with something super-low-maintenance, you can sprout seeds, raise tiny succulents or make friends with air plants.
