Why Getting Girls to Code Is a Really Big Deal

Why Getting Girls to Code Is a Really Big Deal | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it
Google is making sure the next generation of coders is shaped by today's girls.

 

"Girls today need to learn how to code for two reasons: first, there aren't enough female engineers, and second, it will become an essential skill, just like reading, writing, and math.

The tech community used to be a place that wasn't exactly accommodating to women — but times are changing, and Google is making sure the next generation of coders is shaped by today's girls with Made With Code, an initiative to inspire girls (and their parents) to get interested in STEM. Read on for all the ways Made With Code helps grown-ups and little girls understand that it's a big deal to get ladies involved with programming! (...)"

Can Social Media Save NASA—And The Rest Of The Science World?

Can Social Media Save NASA—And The Rest Of The Science World? | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it

"NASA turns 55 today, and to celebrate, the government is shutting it down. Because the United States Congress has failed to authorize continued spending, the federal government stops providing all but "essential" services. Unfortunately, unlike the postal service, air traffic management and armed forces, NASA and a number of other government science endeavors aren't considered essential.

But a growing number of people who follow NASA on social media, read science blogs, and share scientific articles with friends might disagree..."

Why (And How) Students Can Get Excited About STEM [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why (And How) Students Can Get Excited About STEM [INFOGRAPHIC] | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it
There's a lot of buzz out there about STEM - not only in the realm of teaching and learning, but in terms of job growth and potential, too.

 

According to the Smithsonian Science Education Center (the makers of the handy infographic), People who understand science and technology are smarter, more competitive, more productive, and more engaged global citizens.

If only I had a wall large enough, in our STEM video game lab, to put this info graphic on for others to view.

La France a, plus que jamais, besoin de scientifiques et techniciens

TECHNO - Connaître les risques et permettre un débat citoyen et public sur les enjeux des sciences et techniques est une bonne chose. Il n'y a pas pire obscurantiste que celui qui voudrait imposer le fait scientifique par un acte d'autorité.

Level Up: Video Games Are The New Educational Hack

Level Up: Video Games Are The New Educational Hack | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it
National design competitions and penguin avatars are helping youth see success in math, coding and computational thinking.

 

"Video games are often at the center of negative press for their effect on children. But that's not the only story that can be told. Video games used as teaching tools can change lives and impart excellent skills...

 

But children can also learn from the creation of and interaction with video games dispelling the harsh stigma of the child/video game complex and bringing a revolution to the educational system. A revolution that will be gamified.

 

Video games utilized for education can have unique and positive effects. Two programs make this very clear: The National STEM Video Game Challenge is an annual call for middle to high schoolers to submit their own video game designs and compete on the national level with other children their age. By designing their own games, children learn the ins and outs of coding, strategy and digital creation..."

Why A Sense Of Belonging Is Essential To Learning ?

Why A Sense Of Belonging Is Essential To Learning ? | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it

This week I blogged about a new study that suggests one reason why there are so few women in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math): they are vulnerable to feeling that they have to put in more effort than others to achieve the same results...
