Check out These Fun iPad Apps for Helping Young Students Learn About Coding, Logic, Math, & More!

Dr. Leslie Suters is a faculty member in the College of Education’s Curriculum & Instruction Department at Tennessee Tech University. She will present the session “Coding for the Core: Using the iPad to Develop Computational Thinking and Mathematical Practices” at the 2015 Teaching and Learning with the iPad Conference this November in Raleigh, NC. 

Yesterday we published the article, “Coding for the Common Core – Apps for Integrating Coding With Math and ELA“, in which we shared numerous programmable robots and insights and lesson plans that offer ideas for how they can be used in classrooms teaching various subjects.

Today, we share 15 different iPad apps (many of them are free!) that can help teach coding skills while reinforcing related skills like mathematics, logic, reading, and more! These apps are geared toward students of elementary through middle schools ages.

  4. Love this article highlighting some fun apps for teaching young learners about the world of coding. I was made aware of another great app for teaching kids how to code called Madlearn. I’ve seen it pop up in some schools recently. Looks like they’re getting some traction. Too bad my kids are too old for all these great apps!

In his talk, Resnick describes Scratch, the programming software that he and a research group at MIT Media Lab developed to allow people to easily create and share their own interactive games and animations.
