I had no idea really where to begin with my class. With over 30 iPads in my room, my second and third graders are quite tech savvy for their age. They love technology, but they don't really know how it works.
I started with finding out their background knowledge on the topic. I asked the simple question, "What do you think coding is?"
Some of the responses were:
- How the iPads read the QR codes
- How we moved the flappy bird on that code website
- When we got to play that fun game to move the angry bird
