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, 2014 3:23 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, 2014 6:32 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.

graham j. passmore's insight:
The sentence in this article that caught my attention the most--other than the headline--was "VR has the potential to remake storytelling, from how we watch movies to how we play games to how we pass time while waiting for a flight." 

The biggest message I've heard about content marketing for the past couple of years--or much of technical communication, for that matter--is that it's comes down to storytelling. If you tell a good story, people will buy into it, whether it's in print, audio, video, web, or now virtual reality.  This article seems to be heralding the call--"Technical communicators! We need you now!" Who better to be the storytellers? Who better to be the ones to help others create content strategies for future virtual content. As the article says, the sky is the limit! 

Would you want to be part of creating content for virtual reality? I think I would want to do that. What about you? Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

How The Master's Degree Became The New Bachelor's In The Hiring World

How The Master's Degree Became The New Bachelor's In The Hiring World | 3239 | Scoop.it
More employers are looking to hire candidates with advanced degrees than ever before.

Via Danielle M. Villegas
graham j. passmore's insight:
Adam Helweh found this one and posted it on Facebook (which is where I found this). Reading this, it makes me glad that I spent the time earning my MSPTC (Master's of Science in Professional and Technical Communication), and it has helped me earn a better income and advance my career.  But what would it mean to get a PhD or other doctorate degree in the working world? That is, if the Master's degree is what is the new Bachelor's degree, does that mean a doctorate is the new Master's?  

In the US, it's expensive enough to try to earn a Bachelor's degree, and that's much cheaper than a graduate degree (knowing the cost per credit at many graduate schools compared to undergraduate schools, it's tremendously more), how is this going to help the workforce ultimately? It definitely helps the technical communication world, I think, to some level bring up the quality of work that's out there. But there are plenty of talented people with undergrad degrees that can do the work, too. 

Time will tell how this will all impact the workforce at large.

graham j. passmore's insight:
The sentence in this article that caught my attention the most--other than the headline--was "VR has the potential to remake storytelling, from how we watch movies to how we play games to how we pass time while waiting for a flight." 

The biggest message I've heard about content marketing for the past couple of years--or much of technical communication, for that matter--is that it's comes down to storytelling. If you tell a good story, people will buy into it, whether it's in print, audio, video, web, or now virtual reality.  This article seems to be heralding the call--"Technical communicators! We need you now!" Who better to be the storytellers? Who better to be the ones to help others create content strategies for future virtual content. As the article says, the sky is the limit! 

Would you want to be part of creating content for virtual reality? I think I would want to do that. What about you? Let me know what you think in the comment section below.
