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.
