App development in the classroom #SecEd

App development in the classroom #SecEd
With the new [UK] computing curriculum prioritising programming skills, Torsten Stauch argues that app development projects can help schools to inject creativity into the new programmes of study.
The UK government’s proposals to reform the national curriculum include the final draft of long-discussed plans for a new computing curriculum. Under the new approach, schools will be encouraged to shape the curriculum to meet the aspirations and priorities of pupils.
The new programmes of study are designed to equip students with basic skills with a focus on designing and writing programmes and understanding programming language.
The ability to think without limits, to conceptualise without constraints, must be the cornerstone of any modern education system. It is this that warrants app development’s place in the new computing curriculum.

15 Reasons To Teach Our Kids To Code
http://bit.ly/10ws5Tp
15 Reasons Why We Should Be Teaching Our Kids To Code
Should we be teaching our to kids code? Hell yea! How do I know? I’m a teacher and I see much of the present curriculum just plain tedious, rote memorization.
I also have witnessed the decline in creativity in the classroom, year after year it is whittled away.
Not much left today, and even teachers who value it above all else, have had the wind blown out of their sails.

mechanicalgirl / young-coders-tutorial
At PyCon 2013, we taught two 1-day workshops for young and aspiring programmers.
The material we used was the same on both days; on the first day, we taught it to younger programmers, aged approximately 10-12, and on the second day we had a group of 13-16 year olds.
The students worked on Raspberry Pis (which they were allowed to keep after the class).
We also sent them home with two books - "Python For Kids" and "Hello World! Computer Programming for Kids and Other Beginners".

Our goals include:
Spreading the word that there is a worldwide shortage of computer programmers, and that it's much easier to learn to program than you think.
Building an authoritative database of all programming schools, whether they are online courses, brick+mortar schools or summer camps.
Our vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn how to code.
We believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.

BYOB 3.1 — Build Your Own Blocks (a/k/a SNAP!)
Welcome to the distribution center for BYOB (Build Your Own Blocks), an advanced offshoot of Scratch, a visual programming language primarily for kids from the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.
This version, developed by Jens Mönig with design input and documentation from Brian Harvey, is an attempt to extend the brilliant accessibility of Scratch to somewhat older users—in particular, non-CS-major computer science students—without becoming inaccessible to its original audience. BYOB 3 adds first class lists, sprites, and procedures to BYOB's original contribution of custom blocks and recursion.

Learning to Program with Alice
"Alice: A Fresh Approach to Teaching Computer Science"
In Alice, students construct programs by dragging and dropping tiles that represent words in a programming language; Alice removes the possibility for syntax errors, a common source of frustration for beginning programmers. Students can watch their programs execute, which enables students to see where they have made mistakes.
Unlike many programming environments for novices, Alice allows students to gain experience with all the programming constructs typically taught in programming courses.
