Education Technology and the Twenty-First-Century Skills Gap

Education Technology and the Twenty-First-Century Skills Gap | Computer Science Education | Scoop.it
All too often in many countries, students do not get the education they must have to prosper in the twenty-first century, and countries are not finding adequate numbers of the skilled workers they need to compete. But innovative education technologies are beginning to show potential in helping close the twenty-first-century skill gap.

Why Self-Directed Learning Practices Make Us Better Learners

Why Self-Directed Learning Practices Make Us Better Learners | Computer Science Education | Scoop.it
When you’re finished with school, do you stop learning things after you graduate? Of course not, and why should you? In a basic sense then, self-directed learning could be called the conscious, willing, and continuous growth of intelligence. It’s about taking ownership of learning, and that’s exactly what we want our students to do.

Lessons from the longest study on human development

Lessons from the longest study on human development | Computer Science Education | Scoop.it
For the past 70 years, scientists in Britain have been studying thousands of children through their lives to find out why some end up happy and healthy while others struggle. It's the longest-running study of human development in the world, and it's produced some of the best-studied people on the planet while changing the way we live, learn and parent. Reviewing this remarkable research, science journalist Helen Pearson shares some important findings and simple truths about life and good parenting.

The best learning apps - Engadget

The best learning apps - Engadget | Computer Science Education | Scoop.it

"To find the best learning apps, we sought recommendations from several experts, including Jennifer Auten, an award-winning teacher who's been using apps in the classroom since 2010; Björn Jeffery, CEO of kids-game developer Toca Boca; and representatives from Project Lead The Way, an education nonprofit that promotes STEM curricula. We also talked with an astronomer, a programmer, and several parents on our staff about the apps their kids love. Finally, we read reports on learning app efficacy from several educational foundations and child development psychologists.

We focused primarily on apps aimed at kids 3 to 8 years old, and looked for these features as recommended by the experts we spoke to:

*Open-ended, with limits: Apps that are open-ended inspire kids to explore and create, but they should also have built-in limits to encourage them to put the game down after awhile.


*Engaging but not distracting: A good learning app uses interactive, animated, and responsive features to engage kids and promote learning, not simply to entertain.


*Encouraging interaction: Apps that encourage real-life interaction with other people can be especially strong at facilitating learning."

The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know

The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know | Computer Science Education | Scoop.it
As education continues to evolve, adding in new trends, technologies, standards, and 21st century thinking habits, there is one constant that doesn’t change.

The human brain.

But neuroscience isn’t exactly accessible to most educators, rarely published, and when it is, it’s often full of odd phrasing and intimidating jargon. Worse, there seems to be a disconnect between the dry science of neurology, and the need teachers have for relevant tools, resources, and strategies in the classroom.

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn | Computer Science Education | Scoop.it
Our education system is in need of reform. Most students are not taught to be self-motivated lifelong learners, nor do they come out of the school system with the skills, mindsets, and values required to survive a world of accelerating change. Most students do not graduate to feeling inspired to contribute to human progress.

Neuroplasticity: The 10 Fundamentals Of Rewiring Your Brain

Neuroplasticity: The 10 Fundamentals Of Rewiring Your Brain | Computer Science Education | Scoop.it
Brain plasticity is a two-way street; it is just as easy to generate negative changes as it is positive ones. You have a “use it or lose it” brain. It’s almost as easy to drive changes that impair memory and physical and mental abilities as it is to improve these things. Merzenich says that older people are absolute masters at encouraging plastic brain change in the wrong direction.
