With just Cardboard and the smartphone in your pocket, you can travel to faraway places and visit imagined worlds. Since then everyone from droid lovers and Sunday edition subscribers, to big kids and grandmas have been able to enjoy VR—often for the very first time. Here's a look at where we are, 19 months in:”

Unlocking the #Code for #Robotics in the #Classroom - Edutopia

Unlocking the #Code for #Robotics in the #Classroom - Edutopia | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

"In President Obama's final State of the Union address, he expressed the importance of "helping students learn to write computer code." In a recent YouTube video for Code.org, Obama spoke to students, urging them to "master the tools and technology that will change just about everything." Obama is correct. Our students' focus must shift from passive purveyors of technology to creators of programs, apps, and inventions. We must push them past low levels of static reception into a dynamic mindset, highlighting and nourishing thought and imagination to improve our world.

The elephant in the room is the cost associated with computer science technology. Programs like Code.org, Khan Academy, and others offer a viable solution. They're free to educators and parents, offer motivational incentives, and attract students with highly colorful graphics and relatable character interfaces, such as zombie attacks or familiar video game characters. Sites like these are the first step to introduce coding into the classroom.

Robotics is the next step. Over the past few years, the market has witnessed the rise of robotic tools -- like Sphero, Wonder Workshop and Lego Mindstorms -- that teach students how to code. At its core, robotics moves students away from the solitary interface of a computer screen and into an active social community. Not only does the space of the student's world increase in size, so do the benefits that computer science has to offer.

Teachers know what their students need emotionally, socially, and academically. Therefore, teachers should be properly armed to advocate for change, when needed. Here are five reasons to consider purchasing robotics for the K-12 classroom."

For those in Australia or places other than the UK who would like to understand more about what occurs in other places, this guide published in the UK aims to help develop a shared understanding of the teaching of computational thinking in schools. It presents a conceptual framework of computational thinking, describes pedagogic approaches for teaching and offers guides for assessment.

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, January 24, 5:56 AM

I really like the idea of Project based learning.  Something needs to give re assessment, we just offer (mainly) exams and coursework (not projects, but essays) which aren't necessarily matching re world needs.  Disciplines differ in their requirements for assessment, so possibly it would be good to see how we might adapt (whilst still maintaining high quality programmes in accordance with regulations). Obviously, this refers to UK HEIs.
