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.

1. Productive markets - more posibilities of market use. e.g. creating personilized unique souvenirs cheaply. 

2. Drives innovation - cheap, quick and accurate prototypes.

3. Health - possibilities in printing live cells. Printing more accurate, unique replacement joints in the hospital cheaply.

4. Allows you to be your own producer. It's empowering.

5. Printing can be done almost anywhere. Where big machines cannot be brought, or products cannot be easily shipped, 3d printer can make.

Paul Herring's curator insight, April 23, 5:31 PM

A"n example of how computational thinking and coding can be applied to help humans stay healthy can be seen in the development of an application called Eyenaemia by two young medical students from Australia.

Eyenaemia is a non-invasive, easily-accessible screening tool for anaemia made for use by anyone. With the application, screening is now as simple as taking a selfie with a smartphone — after which the application analyses the conjunctiva and calculates the risk of anaemia, putting years of medical training into the hands of untrained users."

Minecraft and The Future of Transmedia Learning | DMLcentral

Minecraft and The Future of Transmedia Learning | DMLcentral | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
2014 won’t be remembered as the year Microsoft bought Minecraft. Instead, it will be understood as the beginning of the wider understanding that Minecraft is more than just a game. Yes, it CAN be played like a game, it relies on technical components similar to games, it supports a user community around it in a manner similar to other games… but, the metaphor of “game” is no longer useful. It misses the bigger picture. It distracts us from the broader disruptions it is causing in the social fabric. So now I, too, will join the quiet chorus saying Minecraft is not just a game.

What then will I say?

This: Minecraft is our first look at the future of transmedia learning.
