What’s the Difference Between Coding and Computational Thinking? (EdSurge News)

What’s the Difference Between Coding and Computational Thinking? (EdSurge News) | New media & Education | Scoop.it


"In my last EdSurge article, “Computer Science Goes Beyond Coding,” I wrote about the difference between coding and computer science, to help us understand what we mean by phrases like “Teach kids to code” and “Computer science for all.” 


 In that article and in many other articles, there is another term that appears often: “Computational thinking.” Well, what is Computational Thinking (CT), and how does it differ from Coding and Computer Science—especially when it comes to classroom practice and instruction?""

#Makerspace for Education - University of British Columbia MET #makered | New media & Education | Scoop.it
Despite the popularity and trend of the term “makerspace”, educators have to search hundreds of articles, websites and books to determine what this term is, how to begin, where to locate materials and determine the educational significance. Another complication is that the resurgence of this DIY movement found its grassroots in the public population and is just starting to make its way back to education. This makes navigating materials from an educational lens even more challenging.  Makerspace for Education, is a collaborative digital space for educators to explore how to create and use makerspaces in their own environments and will help to transform pedagogies of individual educators through immersion in the context and the support of a community of practice.

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | New media & Education | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

LE APPLICAZIONI

Le categorie utilizzate sono circa 30 e le applicazioni segnalate più di 200. Il pregio di questa lista non è dato dalle informazioni che offre sulle varie applicazioni, dato che quello che ci viene fornito è, semplicemente, il link al sito dell'applicazione, ma l'affidabilità della fonte e la categorizzazione.

Queste alcune delle categorie a titolo esemplificativo:

# strumenti online per realizzare mappe mentali

# editor audio

# Applicazioni online per disegnare o per l'editing di immagini

# Strumenti per realizzare timeline

# applicazioni per realizzare storyboard

# creazione di animazioni

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | New media & Education | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.
