What All Americans Need to Know About How Poverty Impacts Education

What All Americans Need to Know About How Poverty Impacts Education | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it
The real issue is not teachers, but concentrated poverty.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

When it was only an urban problem, few people took notice. Now it is a whole different problem. In addition to lack of food, access to tools, and stimulation from good sources, ... sometimes parental resources and knowledge are a problem.

Creative Computational Thinking: Problem Solving with Robots in Computing

Creative Computational Thinking: Problem Solving with Robots in Computing | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING IN K-12 | Scoop.it

Lawhead et al (2003) stated that robots “…provide entry level programming students with a physical model to visually demonstrate concepts” and “the most important benefit of using robots in teaching introductory courses is the focus provided on learning language independent, persistent truths about programming and programming techniques. Robots readily illustrate the idea of computation as interaction”. Synergies can be made with our work and those one on pre-object programming and simulation of robots for teaching programming as a visual approach to the teaching of the widely used programming language  Java.
