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.

How to Be a Data Scientist

How to Be a Data Scientist | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
For my entire career I just thought that I was a statistician that was really good at finding the deep insights from data and who could write a bit of code in a few languages. Then, a few months ago I started taking some workshops at one of the hot new "trade schools" that teach code, analytics, marketing, UX and more.

Animation research moves forward, one wardrobe at a time

Animation research moves forward, one wardrobe at a time | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Animated characters can mimic human behavior extremely well. They can perform jaw-dropping feats of life and death. But there's one trick that digital denizens haven’t quite yet mastered: getting dressed and putting their pants on one leg at a time. Research from the Georgia Institute of Technology has produced a systematic tool that allows animators to create realistic motion for virtual humans who are getting dressed.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

he demand for trained computer scientists and engineers has grown and continues to grow dramatically. Despite the recognized need for a diverse computing workforce, women, racial/ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities continue to be underrepresented in computing and STEM fields. In this short video one woman shares advice for instructors on how their behaviors impact an underrepresented students’ decision to pursue computer science.

Why Use a 2-D Cursor in a 3-D World?

Why Use a 2-D Cursor in a 3-D World? | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Researchers have developed techniques that enable computer cursors to interact in 3-D in single or multiuser, local or remote collaboration scenarios. The system, unveiled at the SIGGRAPH 2015 Conference in Los Angeles, is not so much about turning Word into an IMAX experience as offering designers an opportunity to navigate through and modify their creations manipulating 3-D objects with 3-D interactions.

3 ways to get every student coding | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Coding is too important a skill to relegate to after-school clubs. See how one school district integrates it into the core curriculum to give all students — including young children, girls, students with disabilities and English language learners — the chance to try computer science and programming.
