In fact, when used judiciously, ICT can support different aspects of learning and development processes of young children, including language, creativity and problem-solving skills. Children can also play and learn together using ICT, which can foster their ability to communicate and collaborate. Moreover, ICT facilitate more personalized learning and thus can diversify and increase learning opportunities for every child, including children with special educational needs.

Five reasons to teach robotics in schools - The Conversation

Five reasons to teach robotics in schools - The Conversation | Continuing education | Scoop.it
Technology is critical for innovation, yet schools struggle to get students interested in this area. Could teaching robotics change this?

The Queensland government has just announced plans to make teaching robotics compulsory in its new curriculum – aimed at students from prep through to year 10.

Robotics matches the new digital technologies curriculum, strongly supported by the university sector and states, including Victoria.

But while, worldwide, there are increasing initiatives such as the Robotics Academy in the US to teach robotics in schools, Australia isn’t doing enough to get it taught in schools.

To explain why we should teach children how to program robots in schools, we first need to understand what a robot is.

Great comment by @Marc Kneepkens on his Rescoop to his Competitive Edge feed:

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

The 'digital experience' is changing marketing. People still respond emotionally to an 'increasing' numer of stimuli. The art of getting a response must adapt to the new media. Every day new tools and new ways to reach the client appear.


Successful companies understand this. Companies such as Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, focus new ways of reaching out to the comsumers' not so new emotional respons. Reaching out has grown into a huge "new" phenomena called social media.


Playing our new social media games well and understanding them will mean success or failure.




Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, November 22, 2013 8:28 AM

The 'digital experience' has changed marketing completely. People still respond emotionally to the 'increasing' amount of stimuli. The art of getting a response has to adapt to the new media, every day new tools and new ways to reach the client appear. Successful companies understand this very well, companies such as Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and more. Focusing on one or more aspects of these new ways of reaching out to the not so new responses of comsumers has grown into huge new phenomena, the social media. Playing these well and understanding them well will mean success or failure.

We often assume that one form of technology, a system, institute should work equally well where ever it is.  But the nuances of cultural geography mediate how societies interact with technological innovations, and as demonstrated in this Planet Money podcast, "People in Myanmar (Burma) were reluctant to use ATMs because they didn't trust the banks. They weren't sure that the machines would actually give them their money."

This article is about cities being important in political geography and it relates to our class because we just learned about whenever you go to calculate the number of people of that are a certain ethnicity in a certain region or area, you look in the cities.
