Do you teach 8-10 year olds? Are you looking for ideas on integrating coding into the classroom? Do you want to start an after school coding club or a Computer Science summer camp? Join the CSTA K-8 task force for tonight's #csk8  Twitter chat at 5pm PST. Archives will be posted in the K-8 Computer Science Teachers Community.

Join the CSTA K-8 task group for the #CSK8 Twitter chat on Wed Jan 28 at 5pm PST/8pm EST. Topic: Coding lessons for 5-7 yr olds. What, why and how?  Can we really start coding this young? Learn and share your favorite lessons, activities, and resources for this age group. Talk about integration of CS concepts in the curriculum and the challenges of teaching coding and Computer Science in your classroom.

Here were the questions for this chat:
Q1: Many CS clubs and programs focus on “anyone” can teach CS with their curriculum. What are the advantages/disadvantages of this? #csk8
Q2: Do you use pair programming or other ways to encourage collaboration? How do you know each student is learning? #csk8  
Q3: How do you differentiate CS in the classroom - students with coding experience vs. those w/no experience? #csk8
Q4: Do you use any of the online tutorials? What are the positives & negatives of an online curriculum?   #csk8
Q5: Do you use Remixes/Spin-offs to teach? Why or why not? What are the challenges of students re-using code ? #csk8

And, at the end of the chat, we asked that participants share their favorite CS bloggers or Twitter peeps who share about teaching Computer Science. 

Which blogs do you read? Who on Twitter are "must follows"? Is there anyone here on g+ who is a "must have" in your circles? Please share.

Anyone use Android tablets with preschool/pre-kindergarten? I'm looking for app recommendations. Thanks in advance!

The questions for this chat were:
Q1: What are your favorite apps, websites, and unplugged activities for Computer Science & coding with 8-10 year olds and why?
Q2: If you ARE a Computer Science/Tech Teacher, how do you integrate coding into other areas of the curriculum for students age 8-10? OR Q2: If you are NOT a Computer Science/Tech Teacher, how do you fit coding/Computer Science into the classroom for ages 8-10?
Q3: Should instruction in coding for ages 8-10 be more structured lessons or more inquiry and exploration? Why?
Q4: Share your greatest success(es) with Computer Science and coding with 8-10 year olds.
Q5: What after school coding programs does your school or community offer for ages 8-10? How do they integrate with your curriculum?

+Mark Miller Looking at your Twitter stream, I can see why. Only tweets with the hashtag #csk8  will be in the archives. Your replies don't always have the hashtag. We'll make sure to remind people of that during the next chat.  I have tried to add your replies to the archive. I hope I found them all.

Looking for a Google Drive expert to help solve my dilemma. I currently have Dropbox installed on a computer in my lab. Weekly, I backup all computers to folders on that Dropbox. We don’t have a server so this is my “pseudo-server” backup of student work. I’m about out of room and before I pay to upgrade Dropbox for more room, I was hoping I could use Google Drive as an alternative.
I thought I might just backup directly to Google Drive online but discovered if I upload the same file multiple times, the file isn’t replaced, it’s duplicated and of course all files would have to be uploaded every time so that’s not going to work well. So, I think I probably need to install drive on the computer.
Before I do, here’s what I need to know about the desktop version of Google Drive:
1. If I am using this and pull in a folder and the folder and files are already there, do the files get replaced or duplicated?
2. If it's replaced (I hope) is Google Drive smart enough to know which ones really were changed so it only syncs the ones that need it?
3. I want to be able to use one account for the desktop Google Drive while at the same time be logged into a different account on Google Chrome. Will this work?

Just an FYI if you were following this discussion, if I pull over all the files into the drive folder on my computer, the Google Drive application only uploads those that have changed ... so, yeah! It works pretty much like Dropbox does. The only other thing I want to test is if I can change the sharing permissions on the Google Drive folder so that anyone on the network in the lab can READ files in the folder.
