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.

10 things we’ll be doing differently within 10 years Thought-provoking insights from Dr Larry Smarr | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
When he was founding director of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) in the mid-80s, supercomputing pioneer Dr Larry Smarr witnessed the birth of the first graphical web browser – and realised the internet would be the crucial source of future technology innovation.Fast-forward a few decades, and he expects the pace of change to continue to accelerate.We had the great honour of hosting Dr Smarr in Canberra this month, and over the course of a dinner and a lunch heard what the next breakthrough disruptions could mean for the way we live and work.

Learning the ABCs of programming

Learning the ABCs of programming | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
There’s more to computer programming than figuring out what inscrutable words like “augop” and “del_stmt” mean. Sure, you’ll have to master the vocabulary, as you do with any foreign language. But the more fundamental challenge is grasping the underlying concepts of coding. How do you get a machine to report the current temperature? Or find you a particularly promising blind date? Or drive your car while you ride along reading “Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters”?

Coding as part of school curriculum a matter of time and resources - The Australian

Coding as part of school curriculum a matter of time and resources - The Australian | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
The push to teach coding and computational thinking in schools is starting to attract widespread support, to the point where it’s only a matter of time before these subjects are introduced.

While some states have already made plans to introduce a digital technology course option into the curriculum, there’s a need to ensure that sufficient resources are in place to help teachers make the transition.

 

“Some schools have been selectively teaching coding for years and most teachers already incorporate some aspects of computational thinking and problem-solving in their lesson program so it shouldn’t be too hard to fill in the gaps,” she said. However, some of her peers aren’t so confident. A study by Macquarie University of 144 teachers late last year found that more than half (79) had never heard of computational thinking and most had very little idea of what it involved.

All Kids Can Code: 4 Factors for Success

All Kids Can Code: 4 Factors for Success | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Recently, all of the 9 schools in the Avondale Elementary School District have jumped into the 21st Century and replaced their outdated technology classes with year-round coding courses required for all students.

The change happened on the first day of school in 2014. Students walked into their computer labs that day without knowing that their special area technology class would never be the same. They came to learn that we replaced their old lessons with coding curriculum. The students grew ecstatic at the prospect of creating, designing, making, and exploring with tools they had never used before. As educators, we tried to remove all boundaries and create an unlimited learning environment. One 6th grade student proudly stated that “with code I could create games and programs to cure cancer.”
