Computer Programming for Students with Code.Org
CTAE, Math, Science, STEM
Last year I used Code.Org with fourth and fifth graders to introduce them to computer programming. I've also used Code.Org with my 3 to 5-year-old nieces and nephews, and I find it interesting at age 50, too. Code.Org has four core courses, the first of which is for those who can't yet read, and beyond that there are new modules for more advanced learners. Code.Org uses drag-and-drop programming, eliminating the usual barrier of unforgiving, must-be-letter-perfect syntax. You might use Code.Org with your advanced students because students can definitely progress through it on their own. I've identified all the tricky spots and places where you might want to give a mini lesson on a concept, and I'll share all that with you, including helpful graphics, so you'll have everything you need. Even if you don't think you can use Code.Org with your students--although, really, all students should learn how to code--you'll probably enjoy just using it yourself.
You might want to create a Code.Org account before the class.

Office Mix - Make Videos for Lessons/Training
Office Mix is a PowerPoint Add-In. You already have it on your laptop. The idea is you already know how to create PowerPoints, so now you can make them into videos--videos that are easy for the viewer to navigate because they're divided into "slides". As a DLS, I use Mix to create training videos because I can easily record screenshot movies with narration. You can also record your voice as you're presenting the PowerPoint and can draw on the slides as you go.
There are other capabilities, but the reason I use Office Mix is, as I mentioned, because I can create a movie that's navigable. My viewers can easily skip to the various parts (slides) to review just the parts in which they're interested.
BUT. There's always a big but. But... creating such an easily navigable video isn't as easy as it should be. There are some things I really wish I could do but just can't. The good news is I've figured out work-arounds to EASILY create an easily navigable video anyway, and I'll share them with you.
You may wish to browse https://mix.office.com to learn a bit about Office Mix. Note: use Edge not Firefox (or you won't get past the first slide).
