Thornton Links for Staff

If you work at TA and have heard me talk about something of interest, or I promise you I’d write or provide some information on something curriculum/technology related I PROMISE, I will try and put it here!

Scratch: FUN computer coding/creating in game form for kids, teens, adults, WHOEVER. The things you can do are endless and so fun. Not only does this link have an awesome advertisment for Scratch but it also has a Ted Talk about teaching kids to Code from ALL contents. This type of work elevates our products in other content areas, increases student interests and engagement, and prepares them for an authentic career or future!

Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy: Thanks to EdOrigami for throwing this my way, but if you are interested in how using and applying technology can help to reach a place on the taxonomy, this is an awesome resource!
