Treat Data As Code: open-source!

Treat Data As Code: open-source! | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

Ben Balter argues that open data today is exactly where open source was some two decades ago, and wants to see if it's possible to fast forward the community a bit. Imagine if every time the government posted a dataset, rather than posting the data as a zip file or to a proprietary data portal, the agency treated the data as open source.

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.

Maryland school district showcases computer science education at all levels | NSF - National Science Foundation

Maryland school district showcases computer science education at all levels | NSF - National Science Foundation | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

"To visit the Charles County Public Schools in southern Maryland, about an hour outside of Washington, D.C., is to get a sense of what computer science education may look like nationwide in the near future.

Computer science education is expanding throughout the U.S., but fewer than one-quarter of U.S. high schools currently offer a computer science course with programming, and such classes are even less common in middle and elementary schools.

Several years ago, administrators at the Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) decided to begin expanding their computer science offerings and committed to bringing computer science education to all kindergarten through 12th grade students in its school district.

"Charles County Public Schools has been a leader in providing STEM education for its students," said Kimberly Hill, CCPS superintendent. "In 2013, we began to ask ourselves, what's next in STEM education? And the answer for us was computer science. Since 2013, we have infused computational thinking skills into our curriculum. These skills prepare students for success across the curriculum and throughout their lives as 21st century learners."

Their goals were to broaden participation in computer science through multiple, high-quality experiences, increase the number and diversity of students choosing to study advanced STEM programs, and establish an exemplary systemic model for teaching and learning of computer science.

To a large extent they've succeeded. But they didn't do it alone."
