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.

Constructionist Gaming: Understanding the Benefits of Making Games for Learning

(2015). Constructionist Gaming: Understanding the Benefits of Making Games for Learning. Educational Psychologist: Vol. 50, Psychological Perspectives on Digital Games and Learning, pp. 313-334. doi: 10.1080/00461520.2015.1124022

 

A primary focus of constructionism examines learning from a personal perspective, very much in the Piagetian tradition. Papert saw the engagement with Logo programming as a way to facilitate the construction of knowledge structures and what he termed “appropriation” so that learners could make knowledge their own and begin to personally identify with it. Programming the Logo turtle in the context of a game very much makes the construct an “object-to-think-with” (Papert, 1980) linking together artifacts in the physical world (in this case, a turtle) with those representations (in this case, the rules and objects) in the mind. Papert argued that objects-to-think-with such as the Logo turtle are particularly effective at supporting appropriation because they facilitate the learner's personal identification with the object and help to construct, examine, and revise connections between old and new knowledge. By designing a game (or, on a more granular level, its procedures, algorithms, and data structures), the personal knowledge becomes public and can then be shared with others. Of course, thinking about game programs as personal objects that can be shared widely as public entities articulates a phenomenon entirely akin to the growth of Internet culture, which too is built upon the amassment of intimately personal items (e.g., photos, stories, and designs) introduced on an equally massive wider public sphere, which then takes on entirely new meanings upon this wider scale. And it connects nicely to the social dimension of constructionist gaming.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 31, 7:49 PM

For those in Australia or places other than the UK who would like to understand more about what occurs in other places, this guide published in the UK aims to help develop a shared understanding of the teaching of computational thinking in schools. It presents a conceptual framework of computational thinking, describes pedagogic approaches for teaching and offers guides for assessment.

junewall's curator insight, February 10, 6:37 PM

An overview with top level examples of what each aspect of computational thinking is about. I particularly note that while the examples are in respect to programming (mostly) all of the strategies or actions can be used in all subjects not just ICT.
