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.

"Coding and the ICT industry in general can be especially intimidating for women to enter into, and, in my experience, the women themselves are often their own worst enemies! A great book to read if you’d like to explore why women tend to ‘hold back’ when they should indeed ‘lean in’ was published by Sheryl Sandberg, who served as the chief operating officer of Facebook at the time she published a book called Lean In. It’s a great read, and I encourage you to check it out."

Peter Albion's curator insight, April 30, 9:59 PM

Most of my early learning about coding was by typing in code from magazines and varying that to suit my own purposes. I progressed from there to coding from scratch on my own but still resort to Googling for answers and coming with adaptations when coding new projects - http://dralb.albion.id.au/?p=4449 - learning from models (monkey see, monkey do) is how we learn from the earliest age.

James Evans's curator insight, March 12, 2013 10:49 PM

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.

The Four Negative Sides of Technology | Edudemic

There can be a negative side resulting from inappropriate or overuse of technology, and that negative side can have serious and long-term consequences.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 3, 7:21 AM

Technology has many benefits, but it can also cause harm. Edudemic shares updated information on some of the harmful effects technology may bring, as well as five ways you may address the harmful impacts. Two of the harmful effects are below.

1. Technology changes the way children think. Research shows that "the use of technology can alter the actual wiring of the brain." There may be benefits to this, but there are some known issues that are discussed in the post.

2. Technology changes the way children feel. A study of two groups of 6th graders showed that those who "no access to technology for five days" were more empathetic than those who were using it. Studies also show that children who use technology  more than 4 hours a day may experiences difficulties in "social skills and emotional reactions."

In addition to two additional negative impacts the five suggestions include:

* Teach responsible usage.

* Use classroom technology intentionally.

These are issues that are impacted by how students use technology outside of school. You may want to include some of this information in a parent newsletter.

Girls Who Code Takes On Gender Gap in Computer Science - U.S. News & World Report

The nonprofit aims to empower women and girls in technology and engineering fields.

 

Saint Jean Baptiste High School senior Laura Willson, 17, is putting together a petition in support of adding a computer science class to the course offerings at the New York City school.

 

After attending a 2013 summer immersion program run by the nonprofit organization Girls Who Code at the Manhattan headquarters of IAC, a media and Internet company, Willson co-founded a Girls Who Code club at her school.

 

“I’m trying to come together with a petition so I can bring it to the principal and see what she thinks about it because I think eventually my school should have a computer science class,” Willson says. “Since they have a club, why not have a class too?”

 

“You don’t have to rely on anyone else to take what’s in your head and try to translate it into something in real life. It’s so nice to have all of that power and all of those skills in your own hands to really build your own dream,” Leah Busque says. “I think that along with that as an entrepreneur comes enough confidence, tenacity and sort of sheer will and ambition to move an idea forward and to not just build it, but also get it out there.”
