Facebook’s “like” and “share” buttons are seen 22 billion times a day, making them some of the most-viewed design elements ever created. Margaret Gould Stewart, Facebook’s director of product design, outlines three rules for design at such a massive scale—one so big that the tiniest of tweaks can cause global outrage, but also so large that the subtlest of improvements can positively impact the lives of many.

... Plusieurs chercheurs se sont penchés sur l’utilisation de la carte conceptuelle comme outil d’apprentissage et celle-ci est employée plus fréquemment comme outil de réflexion (Audet, 2003), en particulier à la formation de maitres (Chemangui et Noël, 2009 ; Özgün-Koca et İlhan Şen, 2006). Ainsi, la carte conceptuelle est de plus en plus utilisée pour développer les capacités réflexives des futurs enseignants...
"Computational thinking is one of the core objectives that runs through the computing program of study in England from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4. Before computers can be used to solve a problem, computational thinking refers to understanding the problem itself and the ways in which it could be resolved. Software engineers and computer scientists for example, routinely engage in computational thinking. As a higher order thinking skill, computational thinking has applications both across and beyond the school curriculum.
There are four key techniques to computational thinking:
* Abstraction – focusing on the important information only, ignoring irrelevant details
* Algorithms – developing a step-by-step solution to the problem
* Decomposition – breaking down the problem into smaller, more manageable parts
*Logic - looking for similarities among and within problems
Learning to program is one of the best ways to develop computational thinking, as it uses each one of these techniques. My intention here is to show an example of a lesson in which computational thinking is taught at Key Stage 1 (5 to 7 years) through programming. I took the lesson plan (attached above) from The Barefoot Computing Project and I taught it to my 1st grade class last week. It required the children to work in pairs to create step-by-step instructions through pictures. The pairs then swapped each other’s instructions, which they used to draw the ‘crazy character’ that the other child had in mind."
real textbooks in real shopping carts ... so *that's* where the metaphor comes from! Yesterday the World Bank hosted a great discussion related to strategies for tackling the high cost and low availability of textbooks, with a specific focus on needs and contexts across Sub-Saharan Aftrica. This event served as the Washington, DC launch for a World Bank publication which debuted last year at an event in Cote d'Ivoire, Getting Textbooks to Every Child in Sub-Saharan Africa: Strategies for Addressing the High Cost and Low Availability Problem. (Those interested in the topic of 'textbooks in Africa' more generally may also wish to have a look at a companion book published by the World Bank in 2015, Where Have All the Textbooks Gone? Toward Sustainable Provision of Teaching and Learning Materials in Sub-Saharan Africa.) As a complement to yesterday's discussions, a number of posts related to the use of digital teaching and learning materials that have appeared on the World Bank's EduTech blog have been collected here, to make them easier to find, and in case making them available in this way can help in a small way to help enrich any related conversations. (Please note that additional links will be added to this page over time as relevant related posts appear on the blog.) ---
