Where are you going to spend your technology budget? Middle School Computer Lessons; Jr. High Computer Lessons

Deciding where to spend your precious tech budget can be your toughest decision of the year. For me I have only $400 to provide for 550 students. I feel lucky, some teachers have no budget. I tend to shy away from software and lean towards things that I can use for years and years. The software I use in class is MS Office/ Paint/ Web/NXT Robotics and the rest is Open source (free). This really works for me.

One thing that could be really useful in a classroom is a computer book. Student text with lessons that can be used year after year. An actual computer class text-book is hard to find. Especially one that you could actually use. Click here to learn more. This book has actual stuff that you would use in your classroom, and all the teacher directions that you need.

Robo-boy, NXT Robotics is good for all ages

Nxt robotics.

I friend of mine who is an Engineer at one of the worlds largest companies recently borrowed a Lego NXT set from me to do a project for work. When he returned it, my 3 year old demanded that he was alowed to try it out. So, I decided I would build and program an NXT robot that he could help in the building and be able to interact with through the programing. It was a huge success. I build a simple 2 wheel robot with sensors then paired it to my Android phone with a simple “Mind-droid”app. He was able to control the robot by tilting my phone. It was impressive to see him control it.

The Mindstorms NXT sets are so great for teaching technology. THey can be used with a great span of age ranges. This boy is 3 and he was able to use it to some degree, my friend is an engineer with a master’s degree working for a huge company and it had great use, I have seen it being used at Carnegie Mellon University. Bottom line, the NXT robotics are awesome and are perfect for Middle School Computer Classes. In this book there are at least 2 great NXT lessons perfect for Jr. high classes.
