Activities - Computer Science Unplugged

Activities - Computer Science Unplugged | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Each Unplugged activity is available to download in PDF format, with full instructions and worksheets. Background sections explain the significance of each activity to computer science, and answers are provided for all problems. All you need for most of these activities are curiosity and enthusiasm. There are photos and videos showing some of the activities in action, and we’ve collected links to other useful resources. The activities are primarily aimed at the five to twelve year-old age group, but they are by no means restricted to this age range: we’ve used them to teach older children and adults too, with little modification.
Chris Carter's insight:
Hands down, the best place to find computational thinking lessons that do not require a computer.

Virtual reality's killer app could be empathy  

Virtual reality's killer app could be empathy   | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Journalists and activists are using VR and empathy to communicate narratives such as 6×9, an experience that puts you in solitary confinement. Thousands of people in the US are put into solitary confinement for all sorts of reasons and some end up with psychiatric disorders associated with the treatment.

 

You can never truly empathise with their situation without experiencing the real thing, but VR is the closest people can get. It’s one thing to read about what these people go through and another to see and hear it all around you. Sure, the experience might be fleeting but it hits home when you see their environment with your own eyes.

Why empathy in the classroom is so important

Why empathy in the classroom is so important | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

A new study out of Stanford shows that when teachers maintain an empathetic mind frame, students are less likely to be expelled.

 

The study was conducted by Jason Okonofua, Stanford psychology post-doctoral fellow and lead author on the paper, psychology researcher David Paunesku, and Stanford associate professor of psychologyGregory Walton and was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

 

According to a press release on the study, these results came from the culmination of three separate experiments on inspiring empathy in teachers. ....

 

Approaching discipline with empathy works it practice too, according to 2016 Teacher of the Year Jahana Hayes. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Hayes explained that students need to be allowed to be kids and to handle problems from the point a student is at, not the point an educator feels the student should be at.

Teacher empathy reduces student suspensions, Stanford research shows | Stanford News Press Release | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
When teachers think empathically, and not punitively, about misbehaving students, they cultivate better relationships and help reduce discipline problems, Stanford research shows.

 

The findings showed that giving teachers an opportunity to express their empathic values – to understand students’ perspectives and to sustain positive relationships with students when they misbehave – improved student-teacher relationships and discipline outcomes.
