Oct 12, 2018 2018-10-12

Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in September.

1. Computer Science Learning Experiences
Students can combine the magic of making with the power of programming across a variety of different products using Microsoft MakeCode, a free, open-sourced platform for creating engaging computer science learning experiences that support a progression path into real-world programming.

2. Emotional Intelligence: The Skills Our Students Deserve-Part 2
In Part One of our series, we looked at Roni’s research on what emotional intelligence is and why it’s so important. In Part Two, we’re focusing on how emotional intelligence skills can be implemented in the classroom.

3. 3D Virtual Tour of Egypt’s Historical Sites
Describing Egypt offers visitors a growing bank of 360-degree virtual tours showcasing some of Egypt’s historical sites. The tours currently focus on the Ancient Egyptian Tombs of The 30 Dynasties reign, which spans across 3,000 years (2,859 years to be exact, from BCE 3200 to BCE 341).

4. Active STEM Play Experiences
Many education experts believe that coding will soon be an essential skill for young people entering the workforce. At the same time, there is growing concern about the increasingly sedentary lifestyles of children. Unruly Studios takes on both issues with a product that makes learning and movement accessible and engaging.

5. Photography Contest Inspired by Earth
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is sponsoring a photography contest to celebrate Earth Science Week, October 14-20, 2018. The photography theme for this year is “Inspired by Earth.”
