    Hi @Joe_Moretti this is Liesbeth from Roermond. #adechat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:06 PM EDT
    Q1: SPG has been a ride this year! My pupils in teh coding group really enjoyedt. They loved solving the puzzle #adechat
  • deepexperience1 May 30 @ 3:06 PM EDT
    A1 I've done quite a bit work with local primary schools usingSwidt Playgrounds - helped develop basic coding confidence #adechat
  • katigori May 30 @ 3:06 PM EDT
    Call me a pedant, 🤔 but #adechat starts at 8PM BST or UK time in summer not GMT. 😁
  • MarkvandeMortel May 30 @ 3:06 PM EDT
    Are there those moments in @HouseofCards 😳 #ADEchat is great, have fun!

    Hey everyone! Lindsay here from Cape Town 🇿🇦Innovation coach passionate about real learning! Also Masters student @StellenboschUni #ADEchat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:06 PM EDT
    Q1: loved that my pupils gained some grit using SPG. They really had to work at it! #adechat
  • jpotterx May 30 @ 3:07 PM EDT
    Hi all! Haven't used SPG yet but that's due to our hardware limitations. Looks a v good package tho. #adechat
  • aramski May 30 @ 3:07 PM EDT
    A1: still in 'computer-club' stage; it's a PYPX Coding Club, so starting small. K-5 has 1:1 iPads, for this we use 3 iPads #ADEchat
  • TeachMeGG May 30 @ 3:07 PM EDT
    @Joe_Moretti Gerard here from Madrid. I've used SPG and @gotynker with Y6, so far so good! Very good, structured resources! #adechat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:08 PM EDT
    Just doing as I’m told! (for once) … #adechat.
    In reply to @katigori
  • aramski May 30 @ 3:08 PM EDT
    Next school year we'll scale up to the classrooms, hopefully! Looking for some good stuff tonight on #ADEchat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:08 PM EDT
    Q1: pupils reflected on their own work and said they used code thinking in other classes, like breaking up a difficult task #ADEchat
  • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:08 PM EDT
    A1. SPG is the great intro to Swift and shows that Everyone Can Code. No one has yet failed to complete the initial challenges. #ADEchat
  • TeachMeGG May 30 @ 3:09 PM EDT
    the quick repeat after making a silly mistake has gotten us all though! #adechat
    In reply to @MirCWalsh
  • ThatEdTechGuy May 30 @ 3:09 PM EDT
    Hi all. A1: haven’t used SPG so much in the classroom this year, but Digital Leaders have been running sessions at our Genius Bar. #ADEChat
    In reply to @Joe_Moretti
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:09 PM EDT
    Can we use the A1 A2 format #adechat on the replies for those that read through the thread later… many thanks. (teacher hat on).
  • aramski May 30 @ 3:09 PM EDT
    A1: block coding is good for LS, but SPG makes coding fun and accessible #ADEchat
  • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:10 PM EDT
    Yep. I find portal practice is the one that gets newbies right away. #ADEchat
    In reply to @TeachMeGG
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:10 PM EDT
    A1: difficult thing: everything's in English, that was challenging for my pupils, so I've translated every challenge #ADEchat
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:11 PM EDT
    Hi everyone, Anders Randler #ADE2015 sending you Q2 in this amazing #ADEchat .
  • MrTullock May 30 @ 3:11 PM EDT
    Hi, Paul from Newcastle class of #ADE2017 sorry I'm late #adechat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:11 PM EDT
    #adechat Absolutely, you have to integrate your ‘normal’(?) classroom elements with the SPG..
    In reply to @liesbeth080180
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:12 PM EDT
    A2: no, just worked through the first module. Am now busy with building a coding curriculum for @DeStapsteen will use it! #ADEchat
  • marienkoen May 30 @ 3:12 PM EDT
    Ed with @liesbeth080180. Our students don't struggle with the code being in English, but with the instruction. Hail to the teacher! #ADEchat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:12 PM EDT
    #adechat v cool idea !

  • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:12 PM EDT
    A2. Only just started playing around with Xcode and playgrounds hoping to integrate it into the curriculum in september. #ADEchat.
    In reply to @aDesignEdu
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:12 PM EDT
    I’ve been thinking of doing the same in Swedish… together with som older students #ADEchat
    In reply to @liesbeth080180
  • MrTullock May 30 @ 3:12 PM EDT
    A1: Introduced to my class last half term. ❤️ed it. Found it the next step on from block coding & were fascinated to see it written #adechat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:13 PM EDT
    #adechat basically every language we learn is coding. So I use coding through history as well for my lessons. To give a different view
    In reply to @Joe_Moretti
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:13 PM EDT
    A2: I've only had girls work through Swift Playground on their own up to now. #ADEchat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:13 PM EDT
    Yeah, I think people underestimate the ‘extra’ put in to make things work in class. Well done! #adechat
    In reply to @liesbeth080180
  • ThatEdTechGuy May 30 @ 3:13 PM EDT
    thanks. It’s a great tool for building confidence with those with little or no coding experience. So simple to use. #ADEChat
    In reply to @Joe_Moretti
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:14 PM EDT
    Yes, teachers matter when starting to code in class #adechat

  • LanttoSari May 30 @ 3:14 PM EDT
    Team Finland: onko teillä kokemuksia näistä? Katsokaapa myös kysymys 1. #ADEchat
  • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:14 PM EDT
    Thats actually a good point Koen. Now to just have multi-lingual byte #ADEchat
    In reply to @marienkoen, @liesbeth080180
  • LyndseyBalfe May 30 @ 3:15 PM EDT
    I have been using SPG with 2nd years and they love it, ive been surprised by how quick they have picked up the basics #ADEchat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:15 PM EDT
    I kept the coding language in English though as to not to confuse them later #adechat
    In reply to @aDesignEdu
  • marienkoen May 30 @ 3:15 PM EDT
    What programming language is @LanttoSari using? #ADEchat
  • LadyWesner May 30 @ 3:15 PM EDT
    #ADEChat A1&2: Haven't tried it w students but for me, coding always seemed so inaccessible & daunting before @SwiftCodePG now I can code!
  • MrTullock May 30 @ 3:15 PM EDT
    A1: We used @BookCreatorApp to document our SPG journey. The video capture & screen shots of code really helped us to understand #adechat
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:16 PM EDT
    Byte is so cool. Kids love 'it'! #ADEchat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:16 PM EDT
    Yeah, I watched them and played them out with them #adechat
    In reply to @aDesignEdu
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:16 PM EDT
    Q2 - something @aDesignEdu and I are particularly interested in, would really like to see a central ‘swopping’ of work in progress #adechat
  • TeachMeGG May 30 @ 3:16 PM EDT
    So true, even for teachers with no coding experience.. with the iTunes U course and iBooks.. the learning is so structured! #adechat
    In reply to @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:17 PM EDT
    Way to go Lindsay!!! #ADEchat
    In reply to @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • MrTullock May 30 @ 3:18 PM EDT
    A2: not tried it yet, but will hopefully next term #adechat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:18 PM EDT
    The portfolio is something I've seen ignored in some schools with students left totally without guidance. #adechat Simple to introduce.
    In reply to @MrTullock, @BookCreatorApp
  • LadyWesner May 30 @ 3:18 PM EDT
    Hey hey! Finally not travelling or sleeping during #ADEchat time. Hope all is good in Jozi!
    In reply to @BronwynWrites, @SwiftCodePG
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:18 PM EDT
    There really is no excuse now, actually. We're relooking at curriculum to integrate coding. #ADEchat
    • TeachMeGG May 30 @ 3:16 PM EDT
      So true, even for teachers with no coding experience.. with the iTunes U course and iBooks.. the learning is so structured! #adechat
      In reply to @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:19 PM EDT
    You’ll love. Amazing tool to create complete Lab Kits for the students. Works on both Mac and iPad. #adechat
    In reply to @MrTullock
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:20 PM EDT
    A2: old Design & Tech subject is being transformed (& renamed?) to incorporate @SwiftCodePG #ADEchat
  • jimmclean1 May 30 @ 3:21 PM EDT
    A portfolio is essential imho as it would allow learners to try out code e.g. On Lgo we do or mindstorms #ADEchat
  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:21 PM EDT
    Read an article yesterday about how coding should be a tough process. With obstacles and tough decisions. Should we glorify it? #ADEChat
    In reply to @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:22 PM EDT
    So, on to Q3. Whenever a new SPG has arrived a lot of interest is generated.. So… #adechat What would you like to see developed?
  • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:22 PM EDT
    There's still got obstacles but we should celebrate it's being so accessible #ADEchat
    In reply to @ajegbers, @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:23 PM EDT
    A2: Bought my son an iMac this w/kend. He's doing a @udemy #xcode course on it. #ADEchat
  • LadyWesner May 30 @ 3:23 PM EDT
    Ah, more of team 🇿🇦in the house! Please share the article link. My feeling is that vital competencies should never be inaccessible #ADEchat
    In reply to @ajegbers, @SwiftCodePG
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:23 PM EDT
    Completely depends on how you go about the process of teaching coding… with SPG it’s an amazing inspiring activity! #adechat
    In reply to @ajegbers, @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • mevr_verstappen May 30 @ 3:24 PM EDT
    Time for #ADEchat, finished my 2nd correction. Just have to catch up with the questions
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:24 PM EDT
    #portfolios allow for #reflection - an essential #learning discipline #ADEchat
    • jimmclean1 May 30 @ 3:21 PM EDT

  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:24 PM EDT
    Accessible, yes but we also need to temper with reality. Block coding if any sort simplifies a process that, in reality, is tough. #ADEchat
    In reply to @MirCWalsh, @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • mevr_verstappen May 30 @ 3:24 PM EDT
    Hi, Vivian here, from the Netherlands. Ready to implement coding at @UrsulaHorn next year #adechat
  • LyndseyBalfe May 30 @ 3:25 PM EDT
    I havent gotten to xcode yet, i was nervous about using it but Swift has made me more confident about coding #ADEchat
  • LadyWesner May 30 @ 3:25 PM EDT
    Which is why @SwiftCodePG is different - learning a #coding language & not just playing w blocks - more realistic & transferrable #ADEChat
    In reply to @ajegbers, @MirCWalsh, @SwiftCodePG, @SwiftCodePG
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:25 PM EDT
    Problem solving and opportunities for failure are part and parcel of #coding and essential life skills #ADEchat
    • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:22 PM EDT
      There's still got obstacles but we should celebrate it's being so accessible #ADEchat
      In reply to @ajegbers, @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:26 PM EDT
    A3 How much is really necessary? Good to diversify but at some point we have to do research on how it changes / helps our pupils #adechat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:27 PM EDT
    A3. I’m getting the feeling that few have taken the steps into SPG creation. @aDesignEdu this may be something we should include #adechat
  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:27 PM EDT
    Looking for it #ADEchat
    In reply to @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • mevr_verstappen May 30 @ 3:27 PM EDT
    Don’t forget thinking in structures to solve unknown problems #adechat

    A3. These are all great I've used the Sphero + parrot ones. Would like to SPG of varying difficulties from these developers. #ADEchat
    In reply to @Joe_Moretti
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:27 PM EDT
    This is exactly the reason SPG is SO great! #ADEchat

  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:27 PM EDT
    A3 Part2. In the forthcoming Swift SPG book (with @danielbbudd) that we are working on… #adechat
  • TeachMeGG May 30 @ 3:28 PM EDT
    A3 I feel the added on product.. (we have D&D), doesn't really add as much to the learning experience as I expected #ADEchat
  • aramski May 30 @ 3:29 PM EDT
    A3: anything and everything! => Internet Of Things #ADEchat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:29 PM EDT
    Could you tell us more? Be interested to hear. #adechat
    In reply to @TeachMeGG
  • MrTullock May 30 @ 3:30 PM EDT
    A3: not really dug too deeply into SPG with @Sphero but I hopefully will over the summer. So much to explore #ADEchat
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:30 PM EDT
    Definitely! #ADEchat
    • aramski May 30 @ 3:29 PM EDT

  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:30 PM EDT
    A3 about creating SPG-books… that’s an altogether more difficult task. Definitely possible… but start with simple PG in Xcode #adechat
    In reply to @Joe_Moretti
  • MarkvandeMortel May 30 @ 3:31 PM EDT
    See @Joe_Moretti through @mevr_verstappen I still take part in the #ADEchat 😃 Coding will be at my department @UrsulaHorn @iPadklasSSU 🤘🏻
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:33 PM EDT
    Ok, it’s time for next Q4, some new stuff from Apple that I love! #adechat
  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:33 PM EDT
    Sorry #ADEchat
    • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:32 PM EDT
      https://t.co/8ywl3O5BfM and please, I am really into teaching coding from early on. But for me it's not about language but rather the skills
      In reply to @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:34 PM EDT
    Coding shouldn't be done 'just for the sake of it, as it's fashionable'. Must add value. Ss can find value through voice & choice. #adechat
  • Joe_Moretti May 30 @ 3:34 PM EDT
    A4. @aDesignEdu are you going to say a bit about what you’ve been doing here and why you like it? #adechat
  • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:35 PM EDT
    Just one opinion. Plenty of evidence to say otherwise! #ADEchat
    In reply to @ajegbers
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:35 PM EDT
    A4 looked at it, started it, now stopped for a while. Would like to learn though. But first our coding curriculum #adechat need some #grit 😉
  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:36 PM EDT
    Truly! That's why we introduce the process in Gr 1. I just think we need to tell students that it won't all be a cakewalk? #adechat
    In reply to @MirCWalsh
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:36 PM EDT
    But we always should look at more than one opinion, we could learn from the article en adjust our program. #adechat
    In reply to @MirCWalsh, @ajegbers
  • catherinem23 May 30 @ 3:36 PM EDT
    But to hook kids it should be fun....... #adechat
    In reply to @ajegbers, @LadyWesner, @SwiftCodePG
  • MirCWalsh May 30 @ 3:36 PM EDT
    I think if you start them with the basics it is easier. Skip the basics and it can go downhill fast! #ADEchat
    In reply to @ajegbers
  • mevr_verstappen May 30 @ 3:37 PM EDT
    A4: looked into it, but it’s a step to far at the moment, first I would like to embed coding-skills at @UrsulaHorn #VMBOT #adechat

    Ps haven't had a good twitter debate in a while. Thanks. #ADEchat 😉😀

    Ok, so here I’m talking about the all new version without ”Introduction” in front. This is actually a really great course. #ADEchat

  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:38 PM EDT

    A4: Haven't looked at it, yet. #ADEchat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:39 PM EDT
    Does it need to be a cakewalk though? Isn't learning at it's best when it is slightly (just a bit) uncomfortable? #adechat
    In reply to @ajegbers, @MirCWalsh
  • MrTullock May 30 @ 3:39 PM EDT
    A4: not ready for that yet #ADEchat
  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:40 PM EDT
    And physical. see results that aren't on device #codeapillar @tickleapp @Sphero give real feedback. Can set challenges that scale. #ADEchat

    Q5 doesn’t seem to have sent… (or I missed the #adechat) more like
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:45 PM EDT
    A5 I use all kind of coding exercises like Ceasar code, Morse code, coding using handsignals, to show it's a way of communicating. #ADEchat

  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:46 PM EDT
    Yes! It is language! Ways to communicate with each other. #ADEchat definitely add it to the language department
    In reply to @aramski, @BronwynWrites
  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:47 PM EDT
    What are the basics?The language? or problem solving,dealing with frustration,debugging,perseverance? These are what I look for. #adechat

    But maybe also learning by design, when they get further on in teh program and start to develop themselves. #ADEchat

    Indeed! A universe of possibility. #ADEchat

    And inspiring for the children who are not naturally inclined to computer coding. Gives them a sense of why. #ADEchat

    A5 use a lot of paper as well to draw out the possibilities to solving the problem. Love using pseudocode! #ADEchat
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:51 PM EDT
    Yes! This is great. Poor kids. #ADEchat Frustration, thinking, resolution, reflection. All those emotions! #lovecoding #makesnosense

    #ADEChat A5 Yessss... not that exact video but that concept when I have taught coding offline to youth groups. It's a good one!

    I think this is the basics. Let kids experience the do coding all the time en than take the step to coding language #ADEchat
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:52 PM EDT
    And the last one, Q6. What do we want from our creators…:) #adechat
  • aramski May 30 @ 3:52 PM EDT
    How is this any different from solving at Math problem or learning grammar of a foreign (to you) language?? 😌 🙂 #ADEchat

    I think a lot of people would find coding more accessible if they experienced pseudo code early on. I use it all the time. #adechat

    A5 It will be really interesting in the next year or two to watch primary coders enter secondary school - hope they can keep up!#ADEChat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:53 PM EDT
    Somehow it always already slipped in my teaching method. Just never knew I used it 😂 #ADEchat

  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:54 PM EDT
    But it is really helpful whilst learning how to code. It is a nice in between step. #ADEchat

  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:54 PM EDT
    The key is to take fear out. Ts don't all know coding. They fear it. E.g. Can't ask German teacher to teach French.Just let Ss code #ADEchat
  • aDesignEdu May 30 @ 3:54 PM EDT
    Actually when you think about how to solve a problem, you think in a logical sequence…Pseudo Code. So yes, it’s great! #adechat

  • deepexperience1 May 30 @ 3:55 PM EDT
    A5 The secondaries will be the ones needing to push coding further and be more creative! #ADEChat
  • liesbeth080180 May 30 @ 3:55 PM EDT
    But maybe let teachers who have an apt for it, teach it. We don't all have to be generalists. Just like your example. #ADEchat
    In reply to @BronwynWrites
  • BronwynWrites May 30 @ 3:55 PM EDT
    Absolutely. Let those who want to code, code. #ADEchat

  • ajegbers May 30 @ 3:56 PM EDT
    #ADEchat it's not. But, for me, both if those examokss are tough. And so is code, especially beyond 'blocky'

    Yes, exciting times ahead! Divergent thinking... #ADEchat

    #ADEchat definitely - this was how we were encouraged at university (also encourages documentation of code in comments in teams)

    Thanks all. Its late here so I’ll leave it to @aDesignEdu to wrap up. #adechat Good to chat with you all.
  • katigori May 30 @ 4:02 PM EDT
    #ADEchat can highlight the coder's thinking when you're debugging/adapting later and also help new readers learn
