This Is Why Students Need to Learn Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

This Is Why Students Need to Learn Coding ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ePick & Mix | Scoop.it

"Coding is becoming one of the essential literacies in the 21st century education. There is a growing demand now for teaching students how to code. In his wonderful TED talk titled "Let's teach kids to code", Scientist Mitch Resnick made this beautiful analogy :

 

"When kids learn to code , it enables them to learn many other things, opens up many new opportunities for learning. It's useful to make an analogy to reading and writing, when you learn to read and write it opens up opportunities for you to learn so many other things, when you learn to read you can then read to learn, which is the same thing with coding, if you learn to code you can code to learn.""

Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

Skype is a great tool to use in learning as it provides real time engagement with experts. This a great article with ideas about thinking outside of the box when integrating Skype. 

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 8:04 PM

Microsoft recently showcased a new Skype feature that allows for real-time, two-way, voice translation! This feature will make the Skype Cultural Exchange even more extensible and will allow those who use Skype for non-native language acquisition to have in-depth conversations, in their own languages, about their progress and issues in their learning.

The world’s top performing organizations achieve their goals by offering a rich blend of culture, work, and engagement that deeply enrolls employees in the mission and purpose of the organization, attracts highly motivated, committed individuals to join a rewarding social network, and infuses the journey to success with joy and passion. That results in innovation, creativity, and a personal desire to contribute to systematic improvement. Overall, employees become part of a ‘story’ that enrolls them in a cause and brings out their best talents. This does not describe education in the U.S. Why?

Visual: Half-brain Teaching : STEAM Vs STEM | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Visual: Half-brain Teaching : STEAM Vs STEM | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ePick & Mix | Scoop.it

The age-old debate on the division of the brain into sections each one responsible for a certain set of skills and tasks overshadows much of the theories and pedagogy in education. Based on the developments in cognitive science and brain anatomy, pedagogues become able to theorize new conceptions of how kids acquire, learn and process information internally. Some of the ramifications of these developments have been reflected in theories such as the learning styles theory.

In a similar vein, brain scientists were able to divide the brain into two main sections left and right and speculated a set of skills and attributes characteristic of each hemisphere. For instance left-brained people tend to favour verbal instructions, math, logic and multiple choice tests while right-brained individuals are more likely to prefer demonstrated instructions, visual imagery, arts and music, and creative tasks.

The handy visual below from University of Florida, sheds some light on the differences between left-brained and right-brained people and also provides some examples of historical figures and where they belong in this division. Have a look and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy!
