Paul Herring's curator insight, October 22, 2013 2:24 AM
"...computer programming is a study of languages more than of technology or mechanics. And command of those languages allows programmers to control the functionality of anything that is driven by a computer."
Paul Herring's comment, October 22, 2013 2:33 AM
We need to be teaching the ethics of coding as well - see http://fluency21.com/blog/2013/03/13/kids-use-coding-skills-to-hack-online-games/
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.

Doesn't seem to mention Google Cardboard.

Brett.Ashley.Crawford's curator insight, June 13, 12:15 PM
Virtual Reality has a lot of potential but seems to be hung up in the VC and pro-sumer category.  The content available is thin and the barrier to entry for users is financially significant for a basic consumer pattern.  The health concerns are also concerning.  HD TV didn't have this many things stacked against it and it never really made it. It will be interesting to see how things develop.

Includes Virtual Reality apps - great for use in the classroom for teaching scholars about the trials that children their age face.  Also, can be used as a Bible lesson on how we do not know others stories.
