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.

When the heck did learning to code become cool? — Medium

When the heck did learning to code become cool? — Medium | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
And why it sucks to be a beginner today…

 

 If you — like me — became a software engineer before the Internet was at scale, back in the good-old-days when AOL was spamming our physical mailboxes with CDs — you may not appreciate how drastically becoming a software developer has changed.

Although the Internet has made our lives collectively easier, the dynamic of learning to program is totally different from when I was starting out.

 

When I was teaching myself to program in high school, the attitude people had was “that’s just because Ken sucks at football”, not that I was some kind of glamorous rock star.

 

The prevalence of social media and the epic rise of companies like Instagram and “tech celebrities” like Zuckerburg it has never been cooler to be a software developer.

We Need an Economic Study on Lost Productivity from Poor Computing Education

We Need an Economic Study on Lost Productivity from Poor Computing Education | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

How much does it cost the American economy that most American workers are not computer literate?  How much would be saved if all students were taught computer science? These questions occurred to me when I tried to explain why we need ubiquitous computing education.
