Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, February 8, 7:36 AM
welve University of Illinois faculty members from a range of fields have been selected as Blue Waters Professors, an honor that comes with substantial computing and data resources on the Blue Waters supercomputer at the university’s National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).<br><br>“This extraordinary opportunity will boost the efforts of these outstanding researchers and will result in high-impact work that enhances the reputation of the University of Illinois,” said Illinois Provost Ilesanmi Adesida. “The Blue Waters Professors will be ambassadors for Illinois’ capabilities and expertise in computational science and engineering.”<br><br>The Blue Waters Professors were selected for this honor through a competitive process and this appointment confers a significant commitment of Blue Waters computing resources, up to 240,000 node hours per year. Many of these accomplished computational scientists are already using the supercomputer after receiving resources through the national allocation process (overseen by the National Science Foundation) or the campus allocation process. The resources they receive as Blue Waters Professors are in addition to these other allocations.<br><br>Blue Waters is one of the world’s most powerful supercomputer, capable of performing quadrillions of calculations every second and of working with massive amounts of data.<br>

What Can't You 3D Print?

What Can't You 3D Print? | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
As machines learn from their mistakes, 3D printing will upend the way we make everything.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

I was in a hotel with self serving breakfast and they made perfect pancakes. Sadly the people doing the breakfast had no idea that the pancakes were 3D printed. They were perfect.

Coding for Kindergarteners

Coding for Kindergarteners | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
Last year at this time, I was trying not to think about kindergarteners. I was still teaching ninth grade English and had just accepted a job teaching technology to K-5. I was excited about the challenge, and I knew that I'd bitten off more than I could chew.

Developing the tech curriculum challenged me to teach programming or at least computational thinking at each elementary grade level. Our school is mid-pivot in technology -- we're in our second year of a middle school 1:2 iPad program, our first year of having a cart of iPads available for elementary, and our last year of two PC labs for the students to use (next year we'll have only one lab). Knowing this, I wanted to design a program that mostly used tablet-based tools.

William Griffin's curator insight, December 7, 9:04 PM

The idea of teaching children how to code is a great one.  Technology has rapidly changed the world and all of it stems from coding.  Just like most skills, the sooner its learned, the more time it can be mastered, and ultimately effectiveness is maximized.
