These are slides for Dr. Wesley Fryer's ISTE SIGML (Mobile Learning Special Interest Group) webinar on December 11, 2013, "Introduce Students to Coding with Hopscotch for iPad." The description was: Hopscotch is a free iPad app which supports block-based programming, similar to Scratch software from MIT. In this webinar, grade 4-5 STEM teacher Dr. Wesley Fryer will demonstrate and explain how he uses Hopscotch to introduce his students to the basics of computer programming. With Hopscotch, he has helped students learn to create geometric pictures as well as simple games. Wes will also discuss a free eBook he published in November for the Hour of Code, "Hopscotch Challenges," which provides an overview of Hopscotch along with suggested project ideas and tips for students and teachers to try using the app. Access Wes' iPad Coding resources (including the free "Hopscotch Challenges" eBook) on http://stem.wesfryer.com/home/ipad-coding.

  • 3. www.inventtolearn.com “Three categories of [computer] usage were outlined in Robert Taylor’s seminal book on the subject, The Computer in School: Tutor, Tool, Tutee. (Taylor, 1980).”
  • 4. www.inventtolearn.com “To [Seymour] Papert, the strength of the computer lies in none of these categories. It is a material to be ‘messed about with.’ The act of messing about, which we might call tinkering, is where the learning happens. The computer provides a flexible material that the child can weave into their own ideas and master for their own purposes.”
