Evolving the definition of Computational thinking

Evolving the definition of Computational thinking | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

It could be tempting to reduce computational thinking to just another subject to be taught in schools. However, if we take a more aspirational viewpoint (again the examples here are very interesting long version of Jeanette Wing’s presentation)  – then the interplay between humans and computers will change the behaviour of both.

A more sweeping definition of Computational Thinking would call for new skills, new ways of thinking and make a radical change to the economies who adopt these principles.

Are We in an An Age of Collective Learning? | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

Rotana Ty shares a wonderful essay on collective learning, curating the ideas of Marcia Conner, Nilofer Merchant, John Hagel, Tiffany Shlain, Gideon Rosenblatt, J. P. Rangaswami, Greg Satell, Mark Oehlert, and more.


So, if education is also about relationships and citizenship, how do we harness new learning curves?

While young people are often adept at navigating networked spaces for social purposes in their everyday lives, it is less clear what role schools and teachers should play in that process.

The future of education

Videogames, digital pens, holograms and tactile learning platforms could all become the norm as education looks set to change dramatically over the next 30 years. With technology dominating in and outside the classroom, interconnectivity is likely to play a key role in helping students adapt to the changing world around them

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
Whenever I think of a teacher, I also think of a scholar. It has always been apparent to me that if one is to be an effective teacher, one must continually learn. Of course that is not always a pat...

 

As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn.

 

After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know.

 

===> How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know? <===

 

===> To be better educators, we first need to be better learners. <===

 

 

The biggest hypocrisy of the Education Profession is that the educators too often have become poor learners ===> unwilling to leave their comfort zones to improve their learning. <===

This is very very true! I strongly agree with the part where they wouldn't want to leave their comfort zones!

Agree. Teachers must be open minded and willing to learn more and more , (a lifetime edeavour , )to kep up and be equiped to teach well their "pupils" on overall advances bat specially their field of expertize ! Be up to date all the time to teach well and really enjoy what they do . I know I have been a teacher in the past .

Today, most educational systems are designed to work from the microscopic to the macroscopic. Students learn facts and figures and tiny fractions of knowledge long before anyone really puts things into a larger context.
