For some of us lucky to have experienced DOS, we can appreciate the process of typing in a few lines of “Basic” coding and accomplishing a task. While the coding has become more complex, the ability to handle task can be created easily with the help from Tynker.
The Coding education can take place in a classroom as well as self paced courses with those learning Coding while designing elements of minecraft or other games.
An announced collaboration today between Tynker and Parrot can now expand the learning to code feature to Drones manufactured by Parrot. According to the company those wanted to learn to code through Tynker and Parrot will learn;
Programming a drone’s flight path from takeoff to landing

Coding games such as Flappy Drone and drone racing
Taking an aerial photo and sharing it with friends or classmates

In this Weeks Radio Show, We talk about the Apple Event 2016 with the Unveiling of the new collaborative iWorks, The Apple Watch Series 2 with GPS and the Series 1 with a lower price point. Although without GPS it’s now available for starting around 269. We also look at Apples Role in Connected Classrooms and why maybe this went in a different direction over the past decade. Apple commits to the ConnectED program which is directing Apple technology to the classroom. We couldn’t talk about the Apple Event and not cover iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, much of the focus is on the lack of a headphone port and not towards the fast processor or dual cameras with some nice features we will see with iOS 10, either way, we discuss this and more in this weeks show!
