Technology and the Socially Conscious Classroom

As educators, we're responsible for helping children learn how to live effectively in the world they will graduate into, and that includes being able to navigate social questions whenever they arise. Because of this, we've put together this list of socially conscious web sources that help teach your students how to not only be good global citizens, but good citizens in general as well.

All About Pepper

While similar in some ways to NAO, Pepper has a greater ability to recognize and respond to human emotions based on facial expressions. Pepper also can be programmed on the same Choregraphe software that students are already using on the NAO robot. With many similar sensors and additional joints in its waist, students can create their own behaviors for Pepper, practicing their programming skills in an entirely new context.

A Short Teacher’s Guide to Programming Languages

Choosing a programming language to teach your students can be tricky; after all, to an unpracticed eye many of them look exactly the same! However, different languages are used in different situations, to create different kinds of programs, or even for different hardware depending on the situation. This means that there isn't any one answer to the question of what programming language to teach, but that there's a lot of information about each language to consider. Here's a list of some languages you might have heard of recently, along with some notes to help you decide.

Technology for the Tired Teacher

We also know that the midwinter break can be a valuable time for exhausted teachers to 'reset', in a matter of speaking. Throughout the year, one of the most common sources of stress for a teacher is the sheer amount of work that goes into keeping your classroom current. Grading quizzes, calculating gradebooks, filing paperwork and making parent calls—these and more are all necessary tasks, but can take up a lot of time and effort an educator may not have the reserves to maintain. However, using the right tech can help make these jobs more efficient!...

Gamification: Games and Curriculum (Part 5 of 6)

A gamified classroom focuses on the repackaging of classroom elements to make them more encouraging to the students--NOT necessarily games. However, many popular games can be repackaged as well, and used in the classroom as a way to introduce content in an engaging way.

Gamification: Pavlov and Classroom Management (Part 2 of 6)

Using certain tools, teachers can re-parse the way they monitor their student's actions to create possibilities rather than punishments. When students are conditioned to associate positive behavior with recognition, praise, or rewards, they will be more inclined towards acting positively, even in situations where it is difficult!

Concepts for the Modern Robotics Classroom

Robotics programs are becoming more and more popular in public schools across the US. Hundreds of schools are currently reporting that they are running either a class or an after-school program focusing on robots. However, upon further research, we found a minor issue with many of their programs; they’re incomplete. In this article, we've highlighted three concepts that any long-term robotics curriculum should at least touch on. Each topic provides a slightly different approach to robots, but all three build on critical thinking skills necessary to engage with robots (and with computers in general).
