Tech, Talk, and A Round-up of Children's Coding Apps

If you were at the YSS Pre-Conference in October, you heard Caitlin Schaffer from the Oconomowoc Public Library talk about using technology and coding in School Age Programming. If you weren't able to make it, you can still check out the slides HERE. Caitlin's session was called Tech Tac Toe.

Or maybe you want to learn more about merging apps with your storytime programs. Then you'd want to listen to the recorded webinar Toddlers and Tablets in Storytime presented by Cathy Kolbeck of the Algoma Public Library presented by the Nicolet Federated Library System and archived HERE.

If you'd like to read reviews of some top apps for introducing children of various ages to coding, programming and robotics, then the recent post in Children's Technology Review has you covered. From free apps to some pricier ones, there are a tremendous variety described in that article HERE.

The link to Caitlin's slides is dead - can I possibly get a copy? I was at the preconference but of course can't find anything useful like her email or my notes...
