Game design to develop computational thinking | Nesta | Frontiers of Journalism | Scoop.it
Learners today have the amazing potential to produce their own digital content. But one challenge ahead is to counter a culture where users simply consume digital content rather than engage in the creative process to produce their own. We need to be firmly focused on enabling the next generation of digital makers and equipping them with the key skill to support that creativity: Computational Thinking.

The Silence at The Intercept Is A Reflection of Startup Newsroom Difficulties

The Silence at The Intercept Is A Reflection of Startup Newsroom Difficulties | Frontiers of Journalism | Scoop.it

proJust over two months after publishing its first revelations about the NSA’s mass surveillance program, First Look Media’s The Intercept is taking a break. Well, sort of.

M. Edward (Ed) Borasky's insight:

The problem with The Intercept is that they overpromised and underdelivered. They had one story - Edward Snowden's documents - and that had been published to death months before The Intercept went live. Now everyone's tired of the story, the prizes have been handed out, the wheels of Congress and the White House grind on and on, and all they have is one story that we've all heard. No news is very bad news for a news organization.
