A Guide to Coding and Computational Thinking Across the Curriculum | K-6 Educational Resources | Board of Studies NSW

A Guide to Coding and Computational Thinking Across the Curriculum | K-6 Educational Resources | Board of Studies NSW | Technology integration | Scoop.it
Computational thinking is the thought processes involved in formulating a problem and expressing its solution(s) in such a way that a computer – human or machine – can effectively carry out.

Informally, computational thinking describes the mental activity in formulating a problem to admit a computational solution.  The solution can be carried out by a human or machine. This latter point is important.  First, humans compute.  Second, people can learn computational thinking without a machine.  Also, computational thinking is not just about problem solving, but also about problem formulation.1

The Digital Careers organisation says that students need experience and skills in computational thinking and computer programming (coding) to be successful in their future careers.2 The NSW syllabuses provide a range of opportunities to develop students’ understanding of computational thinking and coding.

This guide draws out the areas where computational thinking can be applied within the existing NSW K–8 syllabuses. Like the syllabuses, it is organised into stages of learning and subdivided into learning areas, with suggested activities and links to online resources.

Not all resources and activities listed in this guide refer to coding explicitly, but they do aim to develop algorithmic and computational thinking skills to better enable students and teachers to reach a coding goal.

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

This poster is a digitial citizenship pledge, one that you may talk about with your student and have each sign...and it has two extra spaces where you may choose to add one or two new rules. If you click through to their website you will also find a lesson plan on this. Common Sense Media does require  you to log-in to access all their materials (for download) and they have excellent resources.

We need to teach our students to have a critical eye when navigating the web.  Below are a few ideas and resources to help you teach your learners about digital literacy.

"Not long ago, a teacher had nothing more to rely on than knowledge, textbooks and a few markers. Technology has slowly changed that in the past few years, with the Internet, multimedia programs and computers increasing their presence in the classroom. But with the rise of tablet tech, the student-teacher experience is facing a subtle revolution: joining the trend makes students feel as if they’re part of an environment that’s desirable because people speak their native languages. As the iPad becomes a teaching tool, classrooms are transformed into contemporary settings."
