What Can Programmers and Writers Learn From One Another?

What Can Programmers and Writers Learn From One Another? | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
Simple, elegant solutions work, no matter the discipline.
Helen Teague's insight:

"There are more similarities between coding and prose than meet the eye. “The interesting thing about writing code is you don’t really write code for the machine,” said Vikram Chandra, a professor of creative writing at UC Berkeley and author of “Geek Sublime,” on KQED’s Forum. “That’s almost an incidental byproduct. Who you really write code for is all the programmers in the future who will try to fix it, extend it and debug it."

Urban legend about Times reporting during Watts riots conceals a sadder tale

Urban legend about Times reporting during Watts riots conceals a sadder tale | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
In August 1965, as violence flared in Los Angeles' African American neighborhoods, Robert Richardson became a part of urban legend.
Helen Teague's insight:

Story by Daina Beth Solomon and Dexter Thomas

"Bob (Richardson) and irony were longtime companions. He was a master code switcher.… A voracious autodidact who could hang with and penetrate a gang set one minute and make a one-percenter feel equally open and at ease the next," screenwriter Michael Lazarou. Sadly, "Fifty years later, African Americans make up 3.4% of the staff across the newsroom, including designers, Web developers and a handful of reporters, according to the American Society of News Editors. Representation is better at some California news organizations, but most of the state's publications that reported data had no African American reporters."

In study after study, corporate education experts have found that between 70 to 90 percent of all workplace learning happens informally — from knowledge sharing and mentorship among project team members to casual break-room chats. Moreover, in an ongoing informal survey of thousands of participants worldwide, the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies consistently finds that respondents value informal workplace learning experiences far more than they do corporate training and eLearning, with 87 percent identifying social knowledge sharing among team members to be “essential” and only 37 percent perceiving formal company training to be similarly vital.

Scott J. Simmerman's curator insight, July 3, 2:15 PM

We can improve employee engagement by generating more conversations in the workplace that share tacit knowledge and best practices. So many people find that things thump and bump on their Square Wheels, yet better round wheel ways of doing things already exist. If people are not talking, they are not learning as much as they might. Structure some time for sharing performance improvement ideas and see the peer pressure support their implementation. -- Improve how things work.

Edtech: Mastering the device vs mastering the pedagogy - Innovate My School | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
What separates the successful mobile learning projects from the unsuccessful? This is a ‘million dollar’ question, and I’ve thought long and hard about it. From the 17 large 1:1 projects I’ve worked on, only three have been truly successful in producing transformational learning. In your own experience, how many schools do you know who have transformed learning vs how many you know rely on iPads as laptop placements, focusing on web browsing and research functions only? I’m sure you’ll draw similar conclusions to my own, but if a handful of schools can transform learning with mobile devices, how do we replicate it across more schools? I believe I’ve found the answer.

Top 5 Adult Learning Principles

Top 5 Adult Learning Principles | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
In theory, adult learners seem somewhat rebellious: we don’t like being told what to do, we want to do things in our own time, and it better be worth it or we’re not interested! But it’s not because we’ve all reached rock-star status, it’s got to do with the way adults are hardwired to approach education. Thank goodness for adult learning principles that provide insight into how to please mature learners who know what they want.

Helen Teague's insight:

Collaborative Media-Making as Agent for Identity and Learning: This poster presents results from qualitative research exploring and testing conjectures on how the process of media-making collaborations between secondary school students and teachers can precipitate a cascade of highly desirable and pro-social phenomena. These phenomena include important shifts in identity, agency and autonomy that bear deeply on the evolution of mathematical and scientific conceptual systems. The US National Science Foundation supports this work.

Dale Dougherty, Father of the Maker movement talks about breaking rules, erasers & building a learning culture (EdSurge News) | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

by Betsy Corcoran


"Making represents the kind of informal learning that happens mostly outside of school. Part of me didn't want to see it in school because it would lose its magic if it was to become defined as curriculum. I want making to flourish as something we do because we discover it and love to do it -- not because we are forced to do it. I've also come to think that rather than having making fit into school, we should transform our schools so that this kind of informal learning is given greater emphasis and so-called formal learning de-emphasized. 

"Certainly, I would like more and more young people to have the opportunity to become makers, and having makerspaces in schools and library seems like the best way to reach more of them. I've been excited by the progress I'm seeing. I have to say that making is the only thing in education that is getting adopted as the result of grassroots initiatives. It's bottom-up, not top-down. 

"I believe that one of the lasting impacts of the maker movement is to transform our education system, replacing a standardized curriculum and testing with learn-by-doing experiential learning. Kids will lead the way, saying "I don't learn the way they are teaching." That's how the next generation will learn that they have the freedom to become productive and creative."
