Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 31, 7:49 PM

For those in Australia or places other than the UK who would like to understand more about what occurs in other places, this guide published in the UK aims to help develop a shared understanding of the teaching of computational thinking in schools. It presents a conceptual framework of computational thinking, describes pedagogic approaches for teaching and offers guides for assessment.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, February 4, 8:12 AM

Time has to be given to teachers to learn, be a part of and use this in meaningful ways.

junewall's curator insight, February 10, 6:37 PM

An overview with top level examples of what each aspect of computational thinking is about. I particularly note that while the examples are in respect to programming (mostly) all of the strategies or actions can be used in all subjects not just ICT.

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, February 3, 1:38 PM

While statistics on VR use in K-­12 schools and colleges have yet to be gathered, the steady growth of the market is reflected in the surge of companies solely dedicated to providing schools with packaged educational curriculum, content, teacher training and technological tools to support VR­-based instruction in the classroom.

This a gentle, simple introduction to the notion that innovation skills can be developed. Our urban myth is that innovation and creativity belongs to the select few. Creativity and innovation skills can be learned. Like all skills they take time and effort. Like all skills the initial stages are satisfying but also sometimes frustrating.

How to Design a Classroom Built on Inquiry, Openness and Trust - @wrightsroom Mind/Shift

How to Design a Classroom Built on Inquiry, Openness and Trust - @wrightsroom  Mind/Shift | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Teachers who are interested in shifting their classrooms often don’t know where to start. It can be overwhelming, frightening, and even discouraging, especially when no one else around you seems to think the system is broken.

A question I’m asked often is, “Where should a teacher begin?” Should teachers just let students go or is there a process to good student-centered inquiry? I’ve reflected on this a fair amount, and I think small strategic steps are the key. I think letting students “go” without any structure will likely create failure, especially if students haven’t spent much time collaborating. Skills need to be modeled.

Via John Evans
Chris Carter's insight:

All effective teaching is relational at heart. Without a modicum of trust that the teacher has the students' interests in mind, there is no ability to effectively communicate. In place of trust is an adversarial relationship in which the students attempt to protect their sense of self from the teacher.
