The Startup That’s Bringing Coding to the World’s Classrooms | Business | WIRED | 3239 | Scoop.it

"This fall, the entire British school system will embrace computer science.

 

The UK is the first G8 country to include computer science education in its national curriculum, and the move could serve as a test case for so many other nations across the globe, including the United States. As computing comes to dominate our world, programming skills are more valuable than ever, but even the U.S.–the center of the technology universe–is still struggling to bring coding into the classroom. Part of the problem is that, before students learn how to code, their teachers must learn too. Pulling all that off is a massive endeavor."

Peter Fruhmann's curator insight, June 1, 12:23 AM

It's all a very interesting and necessary development, but again, it's all about operational skills. What about social and critical skills? I get visions from David Egger's 'Circle', with youngsters surrounded by screens instead of friends and living teachers. "As computing comes to dominate our world...", sounds like spreading panic and fear. Who's in control? Can we still see technology in perspective? As much as I;'m charmed by (science)fiction, some fictions should not become reality...

Reino Unido a la vanguardia con la tecnología en el aula.

Bill Huston's curator insight, June 7, 3:32 AM

The UK is really leading  the way in this vital educational endeavor. I think as we move forward with technology and education there has to be a merging of the two into strong elearning program that integrate technology into the classroom.

Darin Hammond has done it again! This excellent article articulates how to keep the humanity in blog writing. Darin and I come from a similar mindset, and I think he explains the part that empathy plays in the process of blog writing very well here. I'm thinking of taking much of this to be a mantra I should remind myself often!

Opnieuw is er een gratis platform beschikbaar om bepaalde content te volgen of zelf te maken. Wat er ook van Spundge gaat worden, het bewijst dat de trend van content curation nog wel even doorzet. Het platform heeft wat interface betreft erg veel geleend van Medium en voegt daar wat functies aan toe. Onder andere door er Notebooks aan te voegen, die je kunt embedden op andere websites. Dat doet dan weer denken aan een ander recent gelanceerde mogelijkheid om specifieke content op onderwerp te volgen, namelijk ZEEF.

Basta copiar o link do vídeo, entrar no ViewPure e colar na barra de endereços. Quase de imediato, pode assistir ao vídeo limpo.
