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.

Technology in Education: Notes from the Closet: Computer Scientists, Elementary Style | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

When you think of a computer scientist what image comes to mind? Do you picture someone super smart? A bit geeky? Male or female? Happy or serious? See what our Kindergarten through fifth graders thought!

Coding as Visual Expression

Coding as Visual Expression | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

What happens when computer science isn’t an additional class, but worked into the projects that students create in art and humanities classes? What happens when we realize that coding is a language, and as a language, expresses something?

Professional artists and designers have used coding to create visual forms of expression. There’s a community of such artists creating libraries and open-source software from their experience in computational design. These products, such as Cinder, make coding more accessible to artists looking to learn by playing around with the syntax. These artistic communities are highly professional but also supportive, embodying the participatory culture and sharing ethos of the coding community.

Machines, Lost In Translation: The Dream Of Universal Understanding

Machines, Lost In Translation: The Dream Of Universal Understanding | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

Will there ever be a universal translator? Scientists have pursued one for decades (and some say we're close) but the challenge is as tremendous as teaching a computer to think like a human.

Arduino with Kids – Getting started: notes from week 1 – Dave's Educational Blog

Arduino with Kids – Getting started: notes from week 1 – Dave's Educational Blog | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

“ I got my two kids (7 & 9) an arduino starter kit for Christmas. I have this crazy idea that among the literacies my kids will need is some understanding of how our world is built up of little sensors tellings us everything. I have this hope that they’ll want to be part of it and try and build crazy little things around the house with these sensors. We’ve been playing for 4-5 days now and if we keep things up I’m sure I’m going to forget all the frustrations/victories that happened when we first started off. If you’re interested in getting started… this is what we’ve learned so far.”

Stephen Few: Big Data, Little Understanding

Stephen Few: Big Data, Little Understanding | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

TITLE
Big Data, Little Understanding
DESCRIPTION
While it is true that data in increasing at an exponential pace, understanding is not. Despite the hype of Big Data, progress in data sensemaking is slow.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

What do you understand about Big Data.
