Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide Free Guide ~ makeuseof | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
Free Guide to Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide. This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

 

"Your Ideal Linux Getting Started Guide

This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter. For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own."

#codeEU guidelines

If you have existing experience with organizing education events, you might just be interested in the main guidelines to follow when planning your #codeEU event:

Make the event beginner friendly, accessible even to those with no previous programming experience. Don't focus on the technicalities, try to show the fun and practical aspect of whatever technology is being used.The format of the event is up to you. We do however recommend to include at least practical, hands-on time, where participants can create something on their own. Even better if they can take what they've learned home to share with family and friends!You can use whatever tools and technologies you're most familiar with, although we do favor freely available open source tools and frameworks.Learning something completely new can be intimidating. A smile and a friendly atmosphere can help break the ice and make those, who don't consider themselves "technical", more at ease.It's also a good idea to plan a follow up. How can your participants keep learning? Who can they turn to if they have more questions?

Never organized an event before? Keep reading, it's not as difficult as you might think!

Not enough students are doing Computer Science - some options discussed: "

"Giving students science or math credits for computer science courses could also be an incentive for students to enroll."

"Some suggested making computer science a requirement for graduation."

How To Start Integrating Coding Into Project Based Learning | Edudemic

How To Start Integrating Coding Into Project Based Learning | Edudemic | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it

by Kate Wilson

 

"True Project Based Learning (PBL) challenges students to acquire deeper knowledge of a concept by establishing connections outside their classroom. According to the research on PBL, the main tenets are to create real world connections, develop critical thinking skills, foster structured collaboration, motivate student driven work, and enable a multifaceted approach. 

 

"Similarly, coding applies all of these core tenets as programs require logical thinking, team work, a variety of tools, and – most importantly – perseverance on the part of the student. Consider the potential of applying the challenges of coding to the proven successful tenets of PBL."

A computing revolution in schools - BBC News

A computing revolution in schools - BBC News | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it

There are bound to be teething troubles as schools get to grips with this new approach to teaching about computers. But we should not lose sight of the long term aim - which is not necessarily to produce a nation of Mark Zuckerbergs. Only a minority of children will have any great interest in or aptitude for coding, just as only a few will want to become mathematicians.

 

But most of them will need to understand something about how computers work and just about all of them can enjoy the creative possibilities that digital technology offers. If we can show a new generation how to be the masters not the servants of the machines of the future, then that is a prize worth winning.
