Great idea: Get IT professionals in to schools to teach coding for the first lesson of the day before they head off to work.

"Due to the unique nature and flexible working hours of the tech industry, it is possible for tech industry professionals to teach one period of CS before work without an impact on their professional careers." - http://penny-arcade.com/report/article/its-not-just-games-how-learning-to-code-could-change-the-education-system

Also kids after school groups run by whomever is available. Thanks for the link . its great.
Paul Herring's comment, September 10, 2013 4:04 AM
Thanks Bonnie - that sounds like a good idea as well - there are so many good coding apps out now for all ages/stages - we have just finished a unit using Stencyl that worked out great (Yr 10 - 15 yr olds).
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.

IBM just committed $240 million to the future of artificial intelligence | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Despite the many recent advances in artificial intelligence, the technology is still in its nascent stages, with much room left for improvement. Through the newly announced 10-year, $240 million dollar MIT-IBM AI research initiative, IBM and MIT plan to spearhead that innovation.

Top 10 Free Augmented reality apps you need to try right now - KnowStartup | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
The world is changing very rapidly with emerging technology almost every day. The future of mobile technology closely revolves around two words: “augmented reality” (AR). AR in simple terms means an advanced and unseen version of what we can see with our naked eyes.

A regular sight when perceived through our smartphone infused with the AR technology will be enhanced through the use of computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics and GPS data.

Robots and humans can coexist. There is no ‘jobless future’ after all

Robots and humans can coexist. There is no ‘jobless future’ after all | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
When you look at a robot, what do you see? For those of us who cover technology, it’s a bunch of plastic, a coprocessor, and some software. We know the hard part of hardware design is getting the bot to do anything worthwhile. That’s why the idea of a plastic robot taking over the world or stealing jobs from American workers is a bit laughable. It’s hard enough trying to get a meeting robot to look at the right person when he or she talks. Taking over all janitorial duties at a hospital? Kind of seems like a stretch at this point.
