Teach Computer Programming!
Teach your students computer programming using Scratch. Scratch is a free application that will allow your students to create, and share stories and activities. Its a great tool to teach students the 4C's, communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. To understand the purpose of Scratch, visit the website to view sample projects.
An article, "Introducing Programming to Preschool" by MindShift, Heather Chaplin, is an example of implementing computer programming to preschoolers.
Another application to teach programming is, Small Basic by Microsoft. It is also a free application that can be downloaded and surprisingly, the download is only 4MB. Visit the website for more information on this product. Think of all of the possibilities!
