I recently wrote about our students'  efforts using MIT's App Inventor.  The only thing more inspiring than the collaboration and problem solving has been their desire to continue to work at home (without any prompting).  Read the message below (that I received over the weekend.
                 
     
Dear Mr. Kiyuna:

I’m now experimenting with ai2 App Inventor, and I think I have made some discoveries that may have opened some new doors! It’s amazing! Here’s a screenshot of part of my code (of Screen1, and ignore the text bar thing):

          [See attached image]

I think I have figured out how to make these things:

-  An experience point system.
-  Replacing text with what users typed in (in this case, the penguin’s     name replacing “Egg”)
-  Autosaving

I found out these things by experimenting with variables, the tiny database, labels and the math blocks. I wanted to tell you this so it could help on the apps other students are making. There are at least a couple using the tiny database, so I thought this would be a useful discovery. I will work on this app some more and see if I can discover more things.

Signed,
M

April 29, 2015. Experiential learning was the first form of learning through which our ancient ancestors discovered and made sense of the wild world around them. The antiquity of the concept is captured eloquently in several ancient adages. Confucius once said ”tell me and I forget; ...

#Windows10  for IoT is now available for Raspberry Pi 2 as a developer preview. There's a ridiculously cool #HoloLens /robot demo, too.

#raspberrypi   #Build2015   #IoT
Back in February, when we launched Raspberry Pi 2, the sharp-eyed among you will have noticed the folks at Microsoft making an announcement about bringing Windows 10 for IoT to the Raspberry Pi. We're excited to share that it landed today – along with a ridiculously cool demo.

Yet the United States is in no danger of turning everyone into four-year college graduates. Only about a third of young adults today receive a bachelor’s degree. The new research confirms that many more teenagers have the ability to do so — and would benefit from it.
New studies show how a four-year degree greatly benefits even marginal students.

I hope some American broadcast company hires all 4 of them and allows them to start their own car show. 
It's the end of an era for one of the BBC's biggest shows.

Do Chromebooks have a limit of 18 users? I've been setting up accounts for first and second graders and it looks like the screen only has room for 3 rows of 6. Today some students had to log in again by "+add user". Mind you logging in for these youngsters takes time!
