This is a fun article that talks about the use of 3D printing and other STEM activities in the classroom. I wish I had access to this sort of thing when I was a kid! Check it out.

While this was published a while ago, I only found this recently, and thought it was something worth considering. I don't know that I'll ever be a programmer, but some of these are programming languages that perhaps even knowing a little bit can go a long way. I know my Javascript skills are lacking, and I could see how PHP or Ruby on Rails could be handy. Read this, and see what might be helpful for you. Resources on where to learn these languages are included in the article (online learning!).

Definitely a skill the economy values...a bit like foreign languages, will make your resume stand out...even if you do not have a CompSci degree.  This is truly a 21st century skill everyone should learn.  Why not?  There are online sites which allow you to learn coding for free.

This is the school where I went for most of my childhood and teen years. I wish we had this way back when! It's good to see initiatives aimed at girls to do more STEM activities, and proud that my alma mater is leading the way. I know I would've love to learn code back then!

Trisha Poole's curator insight, October 23, 2014 9:52 PM

Take all advice with a hint of caution: It is possible to take effective notes using a laptop, *if* you have the digital literacy skills to understand how to do it effectively. A common problem that arises when using laptops (or other digital devices) to take notes is that people forget to summarise what they hear and try to write things verbatim. When writing notes by hand, people are more likely to summarise and collate ideas rather than write verbatim. Digital literacy skills are important in this context, and it's also important to know that some articles might not be fully informed.

Dans les coulisses du marché de l'angoisse scolaire | Rue89

Dans les coulisses du marché de l'angoisse scolaire | Rue89 | donner du sens à l'ecole | Scoop.it

« L'école gratuite ? Ça n'a plus de sens », constate le sociologue de l'éducation François Dubet, à l'Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) :

« Entre les fournitures, les livres, le soutien scolaire, les séjours à l'étranger, le logement... le budget explose. Il faut cesser cette hypocrisie de dire qu'on peut réussir sans mettre la main au portefeuille. »

Près d'un tiers des lycéens et un collégien sur cinq prennent des cours particuliers pour suivre la cadence, ce qui peut greverle budget d'une famille. Au total, le marché approcherait les 2,2 milliards nud'euros en France, selon un rapport remis en mai à la Commission européenne. Certes, le business a toujours existé, mais il se limitait, dans 90% des cas, à de petits cours d'appoints payés au noir. En dix ans,la donne a changé...

 

« L'important ce n'est plus d'être bon, c'est surtout d'être meilleur que les autres », regrette François Dubet. « C'est la conséquence mécanique de la massification de l'enseignement. » Et les parents sont prêts à tout pour forcer le destin de leur progéniture. A commencer par investir à l'année, en plaçant son enfant dans un établissement privé.

Pour la rentrée 2011, 12 000 élèves de plus ont rejoint le clan des 2 millions d'inscrits dans l'enseignement catholique privé. Cette année, faute de place, 30 à 40 000 familles ont été recalées. Au total, le privé accueille 20% des élèves, mais on estime que 40% y feront un passage au cours de leur scolarité....

Danielle is correct. this is NOT a terrible idea. It just needs adults to be better prepared before they jump into an expensive endeavor. Donating these laptops to a district that can implement a sound plan for maintaining the equipment will allow this wonderful idea to live on!

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, October 8, 2014 10:45 AM

This article came my way from Craig Cardimon, who posted it on Google+.  This is an argument that I've made for a long time. While I am trained as a technical writer, and I suppose many would consider me a writer since I write my blog, I've never considered myself a writer. Even so, having taken the time to sharpen my writing skills has proven beneficial professionally for me, as I will often end up suggesting edits to content when I receive something that...well...is just poorly written, and is usually written by someone who is not a writer as described in this article). They are often grateful for my input, and I become the hero of the moment. I've often felt that taking the time to write well is truly a reflection of who you are. If you write poorly, it doesn't mean that you have bad ideas, but you aren't willing to take the time to put the effort in to be clear, concise, and cogent. If you write well, it shows a willingness to work hard towards communicating well to get the job done. It really does make a big difference.

Terri Rice's curator insight, October 23, 2014 9:25 PM

Danielle, I think this topic is extremely hot right now. Unfortunately, it is not just parents who should foot the bill. These devices are pricey, yet school districts probably are not considering that as much as the adult board members simply are not tech savvy enough to grasp the dire need for this training.

My idea is stop funneling lottery monies to higher education and bring it down to the level of elementary and middle school age.

  That way, funds can be used for initial equipment and upgrades as well. If parents are affluent enough to afford it, great, but everyone gambles, so why not insist on those funds going to the children who get funds cut all the time. Higher Ed can definitely survive without this revenue, but obviously our children, who are the future, absolutely cannot.

 Just one mom's opinion.
