The 25 Most Powerful Women Engineers In Tech

The 25 Most Powerful Women Engineers In Tech | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
What glass ceiling?
Amy Melendez's insight:

From the article: "less than 12 percent of computer science degrees earned in 2010-11 were awarded to women.

 

There's a lot of programs to encourage more women to enter the field from the Ladycoders seminars to the Anita Borg Institute (ABI), which today announced the winners of its 2013 Women of Vision Awards.

 

For the women who do choose a tech career, the sky's the limit. There's plenty of opportunity to become a power player, at big companies and hot startups alike."

From the article: "When a pregnant Marissa Meyer took over as Yahoo's CEO last year, the tech industry seemed to enter a new era: the end of the glass ceiling.

But the truth is, there's still an alarming shortage of women becoming engineers, particularly software engineers."

10 Expectations Learners Have!

"We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, May 14, 2013 10:03 AM

Learners' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools. Consider these expectations and then have an open dialogue on how you can create "learner-centered" environments where these expectations could be realized for the learners in your school.

Vicki Butler's curator insight, May 14, 2013 11:58 AM

Just had this discussion with a dear friend in his late 70's. Thanks for posting this!

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 15, 2013 11:13 AM

I liked this. It was an opportunity for me to listen to the learner point of view. The 10 expectations are relevant at any level but these are particularly important at the secondary and college level in my view. These expectations also speak to how on line and blended learning environments will or will not connect to learners. well worth 4 minutes!-Lou

 

Excerpt from the decription on YouTube:" We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools. Students' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools."

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

The folks at Fractus Learning have taken a look at videos available at Open Culture and selected six to share (although many more are available). The choices here include:

* The Rap Guide to Evolution

* The Periodic Table of Chemistry

* A Universe from Nothing

Videos are a great tool to use with students. Although this post specifically deals with science videos across the disciplines are available at Open Culture (http://www.openculture.com/).

Ken Morrison's comment, May 10, 2013 1:49 AM
Hi Jenn, I don't know you but it probably is not too late. Actually, you have have the 'mystique' factor where other people would be much more interested than you expect to learn more about you. Use branding to give people a taste of who you are. Easier said than done. I have met some people face-to-face who I had followed online. I was surprised at how shy they were. I don't know if you are shy or not? But in the cases I am thinking of, because of their personal branding, we had many common things to talk about.
Jenn Alevy's comment, May 10, 2013 5:37 AM
Thank you Ken for that feedback. I am not shy, lol, I do love my avatar, created by a former student, I love hobbits because I was born on Bilbo and Frodo's birthday and brought up with my dad telling me stories of them when I was little. I work with kids and don't use the brand around them that much but do with my peers. I have yet to find another moniker that is not taken and suits me. Maybe that means I should keep hobbitlibrarian.
