NetAppVoice: Kids Can't Compute -- And That's A Problem

NetAppVoice: Kids Can't Compute -- And That's A Problem | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Kids are "digital natives." They grew up using computers, and therefore are more "tech savvy" than older people. Right? No! Well, the first part's right, but the second part is increasingly wrong.

Via Beth Dichter
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

More and more tech articles are appearing about the need for students to have more and more skills in learning code (the language of the computer). This article hits on some points about why this new language of coding needs to be taught to everyone at a young age ....This might be good idea, but what do you think?

 

Excerpt:

(And This Will Be A Growing Problem
"The overwhelming quantity and user-friendliness of today’s apps and web-based services isn’t stretching users. It’s not confronting people with the need to understand computing, or to be creative in building solutions.")

 

Why does this matter? How good is it if the only thing you can choose from is what someone else let's you have because you don't know how to get it for yourself?

 

Haven't we had enough of that....Most of us can't make clothes much less the fabric and would starve to death if a grocery wasn't on the corner? Making your own music too often means mixing someone else's on a computer or just tuning into music. Everything we allow to be delivered to us is more apt to manipulate us then we are to manipulate it. We are then totally dependent on someone other then ourselves to provide answers for our problems and  accommodate our desires and that's what makes learning this code language all the more important.

This post looks at how people of different generations approach computers. It raises the question "Why do people think students are computer geniuses?" and states "The most computer-savvy demographic is now probably aged 25–55." 

Is this because the early computers did not have apps and had to learn how to work with a machine and trouble shoot it (and were able to do this on many levels).In other words, you were able to get "under the hood."

What is the impact of this? Read on to learn more and see if you agree with this issue.

Abi Mawhirt's curator insight, November 17, 2013 9:36 AM

Issues with 'digital natives' adapting technology skills for learning, or for anything other than 'me time'. Will 'me time' on our devices change if none of us have research skills and rely on serendipity alone?

The Four P’s of Creativity: Products, People, Processes & Press

The Four P’s of Creativity: Products, People, Processes & Press | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Many creativity research programs are narrowly focused on one aspect of creativity to the exclusion of others; an integrative focus will help move the field forward.

This post asks a variety of questions about creativity (quoting from post below):

* What is (a) creative (product)?
* How is creativity achieved (the process)?

* Who is creative/what makes someone crative (the person)?

* What conditions (historically/everyday) are conducive to creativity (the press)?

These questions are then explored, with information form a variety of other sources included.

Recent articles in the news have suggested that creativity in childen is decreasing. This post provides a look at this issue from perspectives that may be new to you as well as the author's perspective on "what factors are necessary for Genius."

Creativity is essential as a skill for this century.

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, March 26, 2013 11:25 AM

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD! I could really appreciate this quote, "Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow”." Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

academiPad's curator insight, May 10, 2013 4:08 PM

This is a must read for everybody who needs to be creative - that is everybody. Some tips include carving out time, making this non-negotiable, and recognizing that you have to work yourself into your creative zone are only some of the things discussed.

This is the third in a series exploring creativity in the digital classroom and it focuses on literacy resources in your classroom. Groman makes a note that the Common Core includes the following statements:

* “Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners …”

* “Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others …”

The use of digital resources and digital tools will help meet these goals and this post provides information on the following tools:

* Kidblog

* Classchatter

* Wikispace for Education

* Weebly

* Wikipedia

* ePubBud

* Meet me at the Corner

* Edmodo or My Big Campus

Teach Students What They Don’t Know But Are Ready To Learn | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
What should the goals of gifted education be?

Perhaps the goals of all education forall children...

“Rather than portray the needs of gifted students as being unique, we suggest weaving them into the general education tapestry. To accomplish this, we would revise the chief goal of gifted education to be the chief goal of all education: to ensure that all students receive the education appropriate for them at any given time by maximizing the match between individual students’ educational experiences with their individual educational needs.”
