Radius - STEM Readiness (Grades 8-10) features 16 modules, covering topics ranging from the real world application of algebra to basic computer science and STEM career exploration. Students will learn and apply skills to solve real world challenges, such as repairing a bridge using linear equations, while using basic coding and HTML exercises that build upon one another.

Future Goals - Hockey Scholar (Grades 5-8) features immersive hockey simulations Hockey Scholar explores real-life applications of STEM concepts such as area/volume of an ice rink, conservation of energy of a falling puck, and speed/velocity using skates. Students will also learn about behind-the-scenes STEM careers - such as equipment managers and ice technicians - that make a hockey game possible.

Ignition - Digital Literacy (Grades 6-9) informs students on how technology works while placing them in virtual environments to tackle issues surrounding digital citizenship. Students demonstrate their mastery of digital skills, such as creating a blog, managing a social networking site, and working to resolve a cyber bullying situation.

Harlan
Piano Maestro is a new, free app from Joytunes. It allows teachers, students and families to join together to learn the piano. Participants create accounts alone or in sync with their teacher. The application can be used in the classroom, as well as assign homework to be done later through the application. Participants will learn to read melodic notes, rhythms, counting, technique, scales, and repertoire through partner and group collaboration. This app can also be linked to an accoustic or electric piano, allowing for problem solving and critical thinking as real keys, hand positions and fingerings are introduced. This can be done alone, but I utilize it in partners and groups in my classroom to allow for students to question and assist each other through the learning process.
