ICT in schools survey – many children not getting what they need; teachers need more training and support.

ICT in schools survey – many children not getting what they need; teachers need more training and support. | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

Students and teachers in Europe are keen to "go digital", computer numbers have doubled since 2006 and most schools are now "connected", but use of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) and digital skill levels are very uneven. These skills and support for teachers to deliver them need a strong boost, according to a survey on the use of digital technologies in schools in Europe published by the Commission.

The Ball that Teaches Kids to Code :: The New Yorker

The Ball that Teaches Kids to Code :: The New Yorker | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Spheros aren’t just fun; they are also an excellent teaching tool. Students have begun using them to learn everything from geometry to genetics. They can code them, too, to take a first step into computer programming. The toy’s infiltration of the classroom came about mostly by accident. Ian Bernstein and Adam Wilson, the inventors who came up with the Sphero, six years ago, were immersed in hacker culture, and they planned to disseminate portions of their code to anyone who wanted to improve on it or add to it. Eventually, they realized that if the app came with a simplified form of that code, kids would fiddle with it.

It was a fortuitous moment to create such a crossover product. The STEM movement—the effort to incorporate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics into the classroom—was gaining in popularity. Educators avidly debated how to help kids transition from the analog world of early childhood to the digital world of adults. Many teachers foresaw a crisis: only sixteen per cent of high-school seniors contemplate a career in STEM fields, even though the number of STEM jobs is increasing rapidly. Sphero and similar toys like Lego Mindstorms—simple robots that you build and then code—have come to be seen as stops on the road to the well-salaried position of programmer.
