“Why does this matter?”

Teachers are often called upon to answer this question about an academic subject, and computer science instructors may face this demand more frequently than most. Learning to write lines of code can seem, to many students, like a pointless exercise in tedium.

But a few professors of computer science have a compelling reply at the ready. They are participants in the Humanitarian Free and Open Source Software project, known as HFOSS—or, more grandly, Software for Humanity. Why does this matter? these professors might respond. Because it’s helping to feed needy people in Haiti, or to deliver supplies to earthquake survivors in China, or to manage the medical care of malaria victims in Rwanda.

"Brain-friendly" learning spaces

Troy Davies's curator insight, October 5, 9:53 PM

"Brain-friendly" learning occurs in classroom spaces that are conducive to 21st century learning skills and competencies. If one is looking for some very specific examples of what redesigned learning spaces might look like, this is a good article to refer to. It includes specific commentary on things like seating, screens, tables and walls. The results of a study on these classrooms also yielded noteworthy results.

You can give new students logins with PINs instead of email. Plus, you'll see everything they do in real-time. You'll be able to assign new slates as homework based on templates you produce, and manage all of their work from a single portal.
