My Paperless Classroom: Primary Teachers: Learn Coding Fundamentals in an Hour

My Paperless Classroom: Primary Teachers: Learn Coding Fundamentals in an Hour | Computational Thinking | Scoop.it
If you have heard about the hour of code, I hope you saw this coming from the title. If you don't know about the hour of code, it is time. Code.org wants to support everybody everywhere in learning to code. They are organizing all kinds of people to create tutorials that can be used in schools to get kids coding, even if it is just for a one hour guided activity

Computer science adds new dimension to study of chemistry - The Stanford Daily

Tossing the plastic model aside, Stack projected the same three-dimensional model onto the screen with his laptop through a chemistry computer program.

 

Computational chemistry allows a computer to understand a specific aspect of science — such as the structure of a protein — and then learn how it functions. Applications of coupling computers and chemistry include creating solar cells and drugs and optimizing motor vehicles.

The Twitteraholic's Ultimate Guide to tweets, hashtags, and all things Twitter

The Twitteraholic's Ultimate Guide to tweets, hashtags, and all things Twitter | Computational Thinking | Scoop.it

Most educators who learn to use Twitter effectively say they learn more from their personal learning network (PLN) on Twitter than they've achieved from any other forms of professional development or personal learning."

For those who have heard of twitter and have dismissed it thinking ‘”Twitter is for people with too much time on their hands” — think again! Educators are connecting with each other on Twitter and using it like a lunch room that’s open 24/7 whenever they need help, assistance or just want to connect with others...give it a go!

"We started Made with Code because even though increasingly more aspects in our lives are powered by technology, women aren’t represented in the companies, labs, research, creative arts, design, organizations, and boardrooms that make technology happen.

 

If girls are inspired to see that Computer Science can make the world more beautiful, more usable, more safe, more kind, more innovative, more healthy, and more funny, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their essential voices. As parents, teachers, organizations, and companies we’re making it our mission to creatively engage girls with code.

 

Today, less than 1% of girls are majoring in CS.

 

Tomorrow, we can make that number go up."
