What’s the Difference Between Coding and Computational Thinking? (EdSurge News) | Pedagogy and Research Theory | 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 ter

Here's a challenge:  Read this research start to finish.

Then think about your beliefs regarding teaching and learning. 

Does this change you?

Jan Ross's curator insight, March 21, 9:35 AM

When students learn to breathe they open a door to self-knowledge.  Imagine learning in middle school that you can grow your brain and maximise your potential? Brainology is a science based approach that works.

Are You Prepared For The Future Of Social Learning?

Are You Prepared For The Future Of Social Learning? | Pedagogy and Research Theory | Scoop.it

"With the Internet exploding with information resources and tools for learning, teachers can be facilitators of information with a greater emphasis on explanation and critical thinking as opposed to the dissemination source. Formal learning systems have in some cases been slower to adopt this model, rightfully concerned with accuracy of material and consistency; yet with ever increasing numbers of individuals accessing information in learning environments, the necessity of these formal systems to adopt technological change is very clear."

Students, Computers and Learning - Making the Connection - en - OECD | Pedagogy and Research Theory | Scoop.it
Are there computers in the classroom? Does it matter? Students, Computers and Learning: Making the Connection examines how students’ access to and use of information and communication technology (ICT) devices has evolved in recent years, and explores how education systems and schools are integrating ICT into students’ learning experiences. Based on results from PISA 2012, the report discusses differences in access to and use of ICT – what are collectively known as the “digital divide” – that are related to students’ socio-economic status, gender, geographic location, and the school a child attends. The report highlights the importance of bolstering students’ ability to navigate through digital texts. It also examines the relationship among computer access in schools, computer use in classrooms, and performance in the PISA assessment. As the report makes clear, all students first need to be equipped with basic literacy and numeracy skills so that they can participate fully in the hyper-connected, digitised societies of the 21st century.
