Using Robotics to Prepare Students for the Future

Using Robotics to Prepare Students for the Future | Technology News | Scoop.it

In today’s’ technology-driven world, it’s important now more than ever to prepare students for the future. Teaching robotics to young students throughout their schooling can increase their ability to be creative and innovative thinkers and more productive members of society. Many governments have already recognized the importance of robotics in the classroom and have begun to create programs and laws that would incorporate it into their public education system. By teaching our students the basics of robotics, we can open a whole new world to them and exciting opportunities that they wouldn’t have access to otherwise. It’s no secret that …

Innovate My School - The importance of developing emotional intelligence through education

Innovate My School - The importance of developing emotional intelligence through education | Technology News | Scoop.it

While classroom education continues to focus on academics, there is too-little emphasis on healthy emotional development in an era where we need it more than ever before. In fact, the State of the Heart 2016 study found that emotional intelligence continues to decline globally. What’s more, since 2014, there has been a decline in maintaining emotional balance (-3.3 percent), self-motivation (-2.9 percent), and connecting compassionately with others (-2.4 percent). The numbers don’t lie, it’s clear that if we want to live in a more compassionate world, then society needs to place a higher emphasis on emotional development.

Quantum computing is poised to transform our lives. Meet the man leading Google's charge | Technology News | Scoop.it
Martinis outlines how he's building his qubit computer and what it can do
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:
Quantum computing is going to be revolutionary. The speed of processing using qubits will redefine industries such as medical/health. Genetics, drug therapy, cures, and treatments are areas of research that will reap the rewards of Quantum processing. The next 10 years will be an exciting decade of computing. There is no better time to introduce coding to our students. ABC's are the foundation of Literacy, coding is the foundation of technology and now we have technology and physics coming together in a way that we cannot yet imagine. Although I don't fully understand Quantum computing, I can foresee the job prospects and opportunities for students who are interested in tech. The opportunities are unlimited! Exciting or scary? The answer depends on your outlook.

The Maker Movement 

The Maker Movement  | Technology News | Scoop.it

Via the Scout Report

 

"Makerspaces, part of the larger Maker Movement, are essentially "community centers with tools." They are designed to engage learners of all ages with tools and technologies as a way to craft new things and promote collaboration and mentorship. Participants may engage in activities that range from bookbinding to construction to coding. These makerspaces (sometimes referred to by different names, including library labs and tinker studios) are becoming increasingly common sights at public libraries. The University of Alberta's Teacher-Librarianship by Distance Learning (TLDL) program provides this helpful, detailed guide to the maker movement. Originally designed to accompany a university course, this guide may appeal to those new to the idea of makerspaces, as well as those who are more familiar with this growing movement and want to implement makerspaces into their library, community center, or school. The Background section is a great place to start and includes a detailed description of different kinds of makerspaces along with links to numerous articles and other resources about the movement. Meanwhile, in the Application section, visitors will find a number of materials to aide in setting up a makerspace. These materials include handouts and posters that define a makerspace and outline the respective role of students and mentors in such spaces, a short Prezi presentation, and a collection of links to outside resources that may ignite future project ideas."
