This is a fascinating article. Humans, as unique beings, cannot be redundant. The automation of work places might make it feel otherwise.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 31, 2016 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.

junewall's curator insight, February 10, 2016 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.

4 Reasons Minecraft is great for teaching kids coding

4 Reasons Minecraft is great for teaching kids coding | Coding and robotics | Scoop.it

"Since its release in 2011, Minecraft has captured the hearts and minds of today’s youth. With the recent release of MinecraftEDU school version, this popular game is rapidly becoming the most important educational software of our generation and is now used to teach logic, problem solving, and geometry.

While many educators use Minecraft to teach project-based learning and other liberal arts topics, many don’t realize that Minecraft is one the best ways to teach students computer programming. Here are four reasons Minecraft is great for teaching kids coding."

Top 10 Drones for Kids and Teens - FRACTUS LEARNING

Top 10 Drones for Kids and Teens - FRACTUS LEARNING | Coding and robotics | Scoop.it
Everyone has heard of drones. They pop up in the news for various reasons on a regular basis, but although unmanned aerial vehicles (as they are also known) have their more serious uses, smaller versions are great fun to play with. So much so that drones for kids are all set to be the hottest toys of 2016.

Flying a drone in itself is a learning process. This means that while a lot of fun, they are also a good method for teaching kids to persist and be patient (which for teenagers is no bad thing!). Drones can also be powerful for developing children’s hand-eye coordination skills as well as a potential spark for a lifelong fascination of flight and the science behind it. And, on top of all that, they are also a great way for parents and children to spend quality time together outdoors, which is always a good thing.

Despite the ready availability of drones, shopping for the right toy isn’t so easy. So now that we have you convinced on their merits, here is our list of the top ten drones for kids and teenagers to help you make an informed buying decision.
