What is so special is that through coding, kids can practice computational thinking which is basically a great way to build designing/prototyping skills in kids.

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, March 27, 7:03 PM

The new Computing Programme of Study has been criticised not only for its content, but also for the terminology it uses. In particular, it speaks about “computational thinking”, “algorithms” and “decomposition”. “Surely”, the argument goes, “they could have used ordinary everyday language?”

Had “they” decided to do that, there would no doubt have had so many people panicking about it all. So, it’s a compelling suggestion. It just happens to be wrong.

Algorithmic Composition: Computational Thinking in Music

Algorithmic Composition: Computational Thinking in Music | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
The composer still composes but also gets to take a programming-enabled journey of musical discovery.

 

Non-specialists may be disappointed that composition includes seemingly arbitrary, uninspired formal methods and calculation.c What we shall see here is that calculation has been part of the Western composition tradition for at least 1,000 years, This article outlines the history of algorithmic composition from the pre- and post-digital computer age, concentrating, but not exclusively, on how it developed out of the avant-garde Western classical tradition in the second half of the 20th century.

If you have heard about the hour of code, I hope you saw this coming from the title. If you don't know about the hour of code, it is time. Code.org wants to support everybody everywhere in learning to code. They are organizing all kinds of people to create tutorials that can be used in schools to get kids coding, even if it is just for a one hour guided activity

Paul Herring's curator insight, August 10, 4:19 PM

"It’s true that many students today have access to laptops and tablets, “but we almost never give them the keys to the technology kingdom,” Levitt said.

“We don’t teach them how the software and hardware they’re using work, despite the fact that we know they are very curious,” Levitt said. 

“We don’t give them the tools to innovate, and we don’t create the problem-solving pathways that support so much other learning.”
