Be Careful What You Code For – Data & Society: Points

Be Careful What You Code For – Data & Society: Points | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Technology can be amazingly empowering. But only when it is implemented in a responsible manner. Code doesn’t create magic. Without the right checks and balances, it can easily be misused. In the world of civic tech, we need to conscientiously think about the social and environmental costs, just as urban planners do.

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

By 2020 Millennials will make up over a third of the global workforce. That’s one reason so many reports about them exist. Some say they are disloyal, self-absorbed and lazy, while others claim they’re a generation of digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Some aim to dispel the myths others have created. Just type “Millennials are...” into a Google search  to see the stereotypes.

This is not just another Millennial report. This report presents new findings with fresh insights  from the perspective of both employers and employees. As world of work experts, we have nearly 30,000 employees advising 400,000 clients on hiring decisions and talent development every year. We find work for 3.4 million people—about half of whom are Millennials.

We carried out quantitative research across 25 countries surveying 19,000 Millennials, including 8,000 ManpowerGroup associate employees and more than 1,500 of our own hiring managers. We asked what they look for in a job, what development opportunities they seek and what would make them stay with an employer. We wanted to understand how different they are or aren’t from the rest of the workforce and from generations before them. We wanted to ensure that the sample represented all working Millennials; not just the top percent of tech-savvy earners, but also the graduates and non-graduates across all industries, income and education levels.
