A few weeks back, we took a look at the E-Blox pARTS kits in the Eduporium Experiment and this week we have the E-Blox Circuit Builders kits on the schedule. Circuitry kits like this one are a great way to introduce elementary students to one of the most important STEAM concepts. And, this one in particular is especially versatile because it combines so many specific STEM disciplines in one dynamic tool.

Eduporium Weekly | Bet You Didn't Know These Ways of Teaching Coding

  • Posted on: August 26, 2017 - 3:04am

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.

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?

Eduporium Experiment | LightUp Tesla Kit

At Eduporium, we very much appreciate EdTech that is engaging, enables creativity, and allows students to build Future Ready skills. Perhaps above those three characteristics, we value and promote tech tools that are progressive, meaning that, as students build certain skills, they’re more equipped to use certain tools more extensively. You can see this progressive approach in our store as many of the product lines we carry start on the simple side and then allow kids to work up to using similar but more complex tools. That’s exactly the case with the focus of this week’s Eduporium Experiment, the LightUp Tesla Kit.

If you’re an informed educator or a tech-savvy parent, you probably know that STEM skills are more than likely a ticket to success for today’s generation of children. You might also know that they can start learning these skills at a young age. You might not, however, be aware of just how young that is. You also might not know about the potential of robotics in teaching kids these crucial skills. So, we’ve launched a robotics progression map to educate, inspire, and help you integrate this extremely beneficial technology into the everyday lives of kids. It starts off simple and grows along with them, leading to linear skill development and real-world readiness.

VR is coming. You should start preparing for classroom disruption like you've never seen. To be honest, it's been quite a while since any one technology has had as much potential in the classroom as virtual reality is wielding right now. In fact, it has monumental potential in all sorts of avenues, like healthcare, military operations, and entertainment, but we're really interested in its implications on education.
