Supercomputers are used for everything from forecasting weather to modeling the human brain.

What sets supercomputers apart is the size and difficulty of the tasks they can tackle and solve, said Jack Wells, director of science at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.

COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING
Supercomputing requires math, thinking skills, algebra and computational thinking and an awareness of gateways to computing. New technologies require rethinking the use of technology Cyberlearning does that for transformational learning.

We Need an Economic Study on Lost Productivity from Poor Computing Education

We Need an Economic Study on Lost Productivity from Poor Computing Education | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

How much does it cost the American economy that most American workers are not computer literate?  How much would be saved if all students were taught computer science? These questions occurred to me when I tried to explain why we need ubiquitous computing education.
