The Startup That’s Bringing Coding to the World’s Classrooms | Business | WIRED | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

"This fall, the entire British school system will embrace computer science.

 

The UK is the first G8 country to include computer science education in its national curriculum, and the move could serve as a test case for so many other nations across the globe, including the United States. As computing comes to dominate our world, programming skills are more valuable than ever, but even the U.S.–the center of the technology universe–is still struggling to bring coding into the classroom. Part of the problem is that, before students learn how to code, their teachers must learn too. Pulling all that off is a massive endeavor."

Eli Epstein:  "When an author set out to tell a story in years past, he or she typically did so on paper, a typewriter or by typing at a computer. But today, storytellers find imaginative ways to share their ideas with interactive and visual elements. On modern mediums like Twitter, Vine, YouTube and other mobile applications, storytellers are crafting tales in ways that would have been unfathomable a decade ago."

Vanishing Monarch Butterflies | Sylvia Fallon's Blog | Switchboard | NRDC.org

Vanishing Monarch Butterflies | Sylvia Fallon's Blog | Switchboard | NRDC.org | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

Today the Endangered Species Coalition has released its annual Top 10 Report – this year’s theme is Vanishing Wildlife: the top 10 species our children may never see. The report highlights species that have been in rapid decline and who, without our intervention, could soon be gone in areas where they once were plentiful. Chief among these is the monarch butterfly whose population has plummeted in the last decade from over a billion to just 33 million last year. Many people have memories of regularly seeing lots of monarchs and now report seeing very few.

 

The primary culprit has been the loss of milkweed – an important food source for monarchs – due to the widespread use of the herbicide known as Roundup.  With the invention of genetically modified crops that are able to withstand the application of this herbicide in the late 90s, the use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, skyrocketed and, as a result, the amount of milkweed in agricultural fields crashed.

 

The 90% decline in the North American monarch butterflies has been shocking.  But all hope is not lost. These butterflies have the potential to rebound – if we can just get them what they need – more milkweed.  Here at NRDC we are working to restore the monarch butterfly  and its amazing migration back to its full splendor through two different strategies: by working to scale back the use of herbicides and by actively promoting the planting of milkweed.

Where Books Are Banned, The Internet Can Be a Lifesaver | Jillian York | EFF.org

Where Books Are Banned, The Internet Can Be a Lifesaver | Jillian York | EFF.org | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

The censorship or banning of books is a phenomenon that occurs in countries around the world. Books that are considered “scandalous” or inciteful in some way are often targets of censorship by governments, schools, libraries and other entities.

In the United States, as NPR explains, books have historically been banned for violence and sexual content, as well as profanity, and continue to be banned by individual school districts. In Australia, the sale of certain books—such as Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho—is restricted to readers 18 and over. In Egypt, books challenging the political status quo are often targets of censorship. Amazon maintains a list of countries where particular books cannot be shipped. And the list goes on.

For individuals living in countries with high levels of censorship, the Internet has become a means for circumventing restrictions on book sales. Access to online bookstores and platforms like Kindle have, for example, helped people in China get around the infamous Great Firewall. New platforms like Oyster provide reading materials in English that might not be available for purchase, either due to censorship or lack of demand. And free platforms like Project Gutenberg create access where cost or censorship is an issue.

But for some, these workarounds have restrictions as well. Copyright and related licensing restrictions can curtail access to books in certain places; for example, a new book on atheism in the Arab world by journalist Brian Whitaker is unavailable for purchase in the Middle East and Africa, apparently due to international distribution issues. App stores sometimes restrict access to book platforms out of copyright or liability concerns, as well as when faced by government pressure. And restrictions on international banking—not to mention the cost of e-books—can limit people in many countries from taking advantage of online book platforms.

Choosing teaching methods for a digital age

Choosing teaching methods for a digital age | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

Although there is often a direct relationship between a method of teaching, a learning theory and an epistemological position, this is by no means always the case. It is tempting to try to put together a table and neatly fit each teaching method into a particular learning theory, and each theory into a particular epistemology, but unfortunately education is not as tidy as computer science, so it would be misleading to try to do a direct ontological classification. For instance a transmissive lecture might be structured so as to further a cognitivist rather than a behaviourist approach to learning, or a lecture session may combine several elements, such as transmission of information, learning by doing, and discussion.
