How One College Is Closing The Computer Science Gender Gap : NPR

How One College Is Closing The Computer Science Gender Gap : NPR | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it
At Harvey Mudd College in California, about 40 percent of the computer science majors are women. That's far more than at any other co-ed school. And it's thanks in large part to the school's president, Maria Klawe.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

There are still relatively few women in tech. Maria Klawe wants to change that. As president of Harvey Mudd College, a science and engineering school in Southern California, she's had stunning success getting more women involved in computing...

How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic

How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it
The great Evernote experiment is underway in the UK. Adam Webster details how he went all-digital with the help of iPads and Evernote.

 

By Adam Webster

 

"From 8th January – 22nd March I chose one class, my First Year class (aged 11-12) to give up using exercise books, reading books and textbooks. Instead, they would use only digital mediums that were available to them through an iPad that they were supplied with during each lesson.

 

"We are now at the halfway point of this test, and I wanted to reflect a little on what I have found so far."

Thank you for sharing Jim. I have and will continue to promote Evernote to my students.

This is the third time or so I have seen instructors give glowing reports about Evernote. One even said that the more information that a user had the better the application worked. Are any of you using this application or one similar?
