A computing revolution in schools | Coding | Europe | UK

A computing revolution in schools | Coding | Europe | UK | Digital Education | Scoop.it

This is the week when a revolution begins to sweep through schools in England. It involves a whole new way of teaching children about computing - but I suspect many parents, and even some teachers, know very little about this important moment in education.

 

As children from five upwards return to school, they are going to have to start learning how to program - or to "code" to use the trendy term which seems to upset some old-school programmers. This is the result of the new national curriculum for computing that is being introduced in England this term.

tom jackson's curator insight, September 3, 2014 7:19 AM

The concept of coding is very foreign to me, but the idea of analyzing, understanding, and creating is not.  Maybe that's where we are going with "coding" in education? At any rate, it's a thought to consider, what are you going to do if, in the near future, your administrator asks, "what are your students coding today?"

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report | Digital Education | Scoop.it

"A group of children on a playground, each kid clutching a slip of paper with a number on it, moves along a line drawn in chalk, comparing numbers as they go and sorting themselves into ascending order from one to ten.

 

Another group of children, sitting in a circle, passes pieces of fruit — an apple, an orange — from hand to hand until the color of the fruit they’re holding matches the color of the T-shirt they’re wearing.

 

It may not look like it, but the children engaged in these exercises are learning computer science. In the first activity, they’ve turned themselves into a sorting network: a strategy computers use to sort random numbers into order. And in the second activity, they’re acting out the process by which computer networks route information to its intended destination.

 

Both are from a project called Computer Science Unplugged, which endeavors to teach students computer science without using computers."

When teachers engage students in these activities, the engage multiple senses as the children learn through doing in a different way. It is transferring skills, perhaps synthesizing them.

"The New Learning Institute brings next-generation educational experiences to young people wherever they are ready to learn: in schools, community programs, libraries, and museums – even the city streets. We believe that 21st century students need 21st century skills; skills that build on core subject matter and encourage innovative thinking and problem solving, an understanding of systems, facility with information technology and devices, social skills like team building and collaboration, and, perhaps most important, the ability to pursue lifelong learning."
