But did you know you can take it one step further and structure learning around LEGO® bricks? Yep, LEGO® bricks can be used for a wide variety of subjects, from science and math to language arts and writing. These days the web is filled with Free LEGO Learning Printables, even here at Great Peace Academy, you can download for free, counting and multiplication worksheets using LEGO bricks. I’ve pulled together some of the best FREE LEGO® Learning Printables on the web so you’ll have a ready resource available here on the GPA Learning with LEGO® page.

How to get started with coding in the classroom - Daily Genius This probably isn’t news, but coding isn’t just for geeks anymore. Computer based jobs are growing at a rate estimated to be about 2x faster than other types of jobs, and it is estimated that there will be a million more jobs than there are students to fill them by 2020. Currently, less than 2.4% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science. Filling this gap means that more students need to get involved in STEM subjects early on in their education. Students need to learn to code, and luckily, there are some great tools available to make coding in the classroom more accessible. And since there’s always a fight for classroom time with ever-increasing standardized tests and core curricula to address, teaching your students to code can teach students a variety of skills at once, like collaboration, logic, practical problem solving and more.

Anyone – schools, teachers, libraries, code clubs, businesses, public authorities – can organise a #CodeEU event and add it to the codeweek.eu map. To make organising and running coding events easier, we have prepared different toolkits and selected some of the best lesson plans, guides and other resources.

collaborating on OBBL Architecture Blocks Math Cats has enjoyed collaborating with Maurici Carbó Jordi to bring you Math Cats' OBBL. Maurici developed the original OBBL program and was delighted by our addition of the cat blocks and the help and ideas pages. (Maurici wrote early on: "My english is very poor, and I experience a lot of difficulties to explain myself.") The javascript code needed to be lightly adapted to permit the changes, and both Maurici and Wendy of Math Cats worked on these changes. Maurici accepts our reset button (the magic wand below the working space), but he will not place a reset button on his own version of OBBL. 6 great coding websites and apps for tweens and teens My daughter's school offered a coding class as one of this year's summer school offerings. I was excited. She was not.

These are The Skills Students Learn from Coding January 12, 2014 In his wonderful TED talk " Let's teach kids to code ", Scientist Mitch Resnick made this beautiful analogy : When kids learn to code , it enables them to learn many other things, opens up many new opportunities for learning. It's useful to make an analogy to reading and writing, when you learn to read and write it opens up opportunities for you to learn so many other things, when you learn to read you can then read to learn, which is the same thing with coding, if you learn to code you can code to learn. Drawing on Mitch's talk together with a bunch of other online resources, I came up with this list of skills kids get to learn from coding . These skills are also relevant for all other sorts of activities:
