If there’s one skill today’s students should be learning every day, it’s probably coding. The fact remains, however, that most students do not get the chance to take part in Computer Science classes or even basic coding activities during the school day. Whether it’s because of a lack of resources, lack of funds, or lack of knowing how easy it is to get started, many school and district leaders do not provide their students with coding education. Luckily, coding is becoming easier and easier to learn, which also means it’s becoming easier and easier to teach. While they may seem unlikely, here are some creative ways teachers can teach coding in the classroom.
It may be time to upgrade your school's space with something a bit more STEM-focused and exciting. In fact, it probably is. As the new school year begins, we're making it easier than ever for educators to implement 3D printer labs in their schools and we've got the research to back up their value.
Coding is going to be the literacy of the 21st century as more and more of the most lucrative careers require entry-level employees to have some form of mastery. Wouldn't it be great if there was an EdTech product that leveraged the fun parts of STEM education, like making, design, and invention, while kids learned how to code?
Teachers, we’ll hold a brief moment of silence for you as you head back into the classroom this school year. Only kidding. We know most of you are super excited to get back into it and continue making a difference in the lives of your students. As another school year approaches - or maybe it’s your first one - it certainly doesn’t hurt to try new things.
The Eduporium store is home to hundreds of STEM, Maker Ed, and other innovative technology products not to mention countless laptops, tablets, and other classroom tools. You’d think that would be enough to satisfy any teacher’s classroom needs or any district’s large-scale requests. Well, it might be, but we’ve decided to do a bit more. Our research has told us that teachers like to have a number of compatible EdTech products for students to use collaboratively. We thought ‘Hey, that’s a pretty good idea,’ and set out to create custom tech bundles for our partners. Here are some of our favorites.
