Demand for Computer Science Classes Grows, Along With Digital Divide

Demand for Computer Science Classes Grows, Along With Digital Divide | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
It's estimated that only about 10 percent of K-12 schools teach computer science. Some companies are trying to fill a void in American public education by teaching kids computer programming basics.

This is an area in the Urban Core that we need to put more emphasis on. 

Susan Einhorn's curator insight, February 28, 2014 10:31 AM

The world changes faster and faster, while education falls farther behind. An hour of code once a year is not enough. Just think about something you did for an hour this year - how did that impact your life or your thinking?

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.

Activities - Computer Science Unplugged

Activities - Computer Science Unplugged | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Each Unplugged activity is available to download in PDF format, with full instructions and worksheets. Background sections explain the significance of each activity to computer science, and answers are provided for all problems. All you need for most of these activities are curiosity and enthusiasm. There are photos and videos showing some of the activities in action, and we’ve collected links to other useful resources. The activities are primarily aimed at the five to twelve year-old age group, but they are by no means restricted to this age range: we’ve used them to teach older children and adults too, with little modification.

As an online teacher and learner I've been working 'IN' a computer 20 years.  My work place is exponentially more interesting every day. The NPR article is a resource rich overview of how technology and education are transforming teaching and learning.   (Will you be frightened or intrigued by the ideas this piece unlocks?)
