It is part of where we might need to go, but does not eliminate the role of teachers. What it means for school is a different question.

Kim Flintoff's comment, July 6, 2013 8:54 PM
It is part of where we might need to go (Many of us have alreay departed for these shores) AND (not "but") does not eliminate the roles of teachers (it will mean teachers need to think quite differently about what it means to "teach"). What it means for schools is a different question (any more different than the usual demand to get out of the way of shifts in teaching practice and stop delaying change for so,long that it creates many more problems in the long run?)

Allan Shaw's curator insight, Today, 6:16 PM

'In the infographic, Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy, we have organized types of activities that suit various levels of assessments (2001) starting with remember, understand, and apply in the first row. The second row of our infographic includes higher levels of active learning including analyze, evaluate, and create. Engaging curriculum whether face-to-face, blended, or online push student performances to these levels of learning; however, these assessments are less conducive to automated feedback systems as rubrics typically require intelligent judgment. The appropriate level of learning for any assessment should be determined by the learning objective(s).' - This is worthy of your time and reflection.

"One need not look to superstars such as Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates to justify reasons for using code and programming logic in the classroom. There's plenty of literature that illustrates its positive learning outcomes. Coding in the classroom is linked to improved problem solving and analytical reasoning, and students who develop a mastery of coding have a "natural ability and drive to construct, hypothesize, explore, experiment, evaluate, and draw conclusions.""
