yet another list of great tools to teach computer programming to kids. Good resources there.

 

I tried some of the hour of code exercises with my 6years old and it's great... she gets it right away and the benefits are instantaenous. She felt "empowered" and pride of her achievment. Very well designed so kids are never overwhelmed by info and instructions.

Maybe not exactly about design abilities, but interesting thing about eLearning how to code.

I hope you are celebrating this week with students you know - young or old.  If you are a business, I hope you find a way to connect with a local school to encourage them to participate in this endeavor.

Applying Design Thinking to the Course Creation Process

"When we hear or see the term ‘design thinking’ the first thing that often comes to mind is graphic design or web design — things that are more concerned about the visual aspect. While the approach itself is deeply utilized in graphic design best practices, it is not an exclusive process used solely by designers.

 

All innovations in different aspects of society have somehow used the design thinking process one way or another. Innovative works in literature, music, engineering, business, and art — just to name a few- have greatly drawn inspiration from this process.

 

So, what’s so special about it and why do we need to be more aware on how it is closely related to the training/learning process?"

Kids Don’t Fail, Schools Fail Kids: Sir Ken Robinson on the ‘Learning Revolution’ | EdSurge News

Kids Don’t Fail, Schools Fail Kids: Sir Ken Robinson on the ‘Learning Revolution’ | EdSurge News | EDUCATION 2.0 | Scoop.it
British author and speaker Sir Ken Robinson is known for several accomplishments, from his books to his professorships to his TED talks. But in 2006, he gained recognition for something that no other TED speaker in history has done. It was back then that he delivered a TED talk on the topic of whether schools kill students’ creativity—and today, that video has been viewed over 43 million times, currently holding the title of “most popular TED talk of all time.”


Well, it’s been ten years, and with the recent proliferation of terms like “personalized,” “mastery-based,” and “blended” in the education world, some of Robinson’s viewers may wonder if or how his take on schools has changed.

At the "Power and Possibility of Individualized Learning" event held in Minneapolis on February 22, co-hosted by the Bush Foundation and the School Leadership Project, Robinson delivered a keynote address in which he spoke to the “learning revolution,” arguing that the shift to personalized learning is a non-negotiable in the United States if education is prepared students for the future, instead of simply the “now.”

So, why then is personalized learning a non-negotiable?

Sir Ken Robinson’s Next Act: You Are the System and You Can Change Education | EdSurge News | EDUCATION 2.0 | Scoop.it

"Sir Ken Robinson’s views on creativity are abundantly well documented. In his 2006 TED Talk—still the most-watched of all time—he claimed that “we are educating people out of their creative capacities” and charged the current education system with being too rigid in adhering to traditional academic subjects. Kids, he argued, need time to dance, draw, create and find what they’re good at.

But he hasn’t given up on schools or education—far from it, in fact. For his follow-up act, Robinson is releasing a new book for parents on how to raise capable children who thrive in school. Make no mistake, though, he’s still shaking up the system (and redefining what that actually means)."

Design thinking is an empathy based, creative problem solving process embraced by innovators around the world for addressing complex problems. At its heart, it nurtures the ability to see a situation from someone else's point of view, engineer a solution, and then test and refine your solution based on feedback. It is one approach CSI students will use to master the California Common Core State Standards and build the adaptable thinking skills they will need for success in the 21st century workforce.

When people ask me how to get started in online education, I recommend that they begin by taking small steps. Begin by creating a course shell and transferring some of your course content to it. Then, transfer assessments and activities to the course. While still teaching face-to-face, have students begin doing some assignments through the LMS. Slowly, begin to transition from fully face-to-face, to blended, to fully online.

The ‘experimental’ concept of grouping students by ability instead of age divides the experts

The ‘experimental’ concept of grouping students by ability instead of age divides the experts | EDUCATION 2.0 | Scoop.it
A Melbourne school has scrapped age-based classes and given students free rein to assign themselves to whatever year level they feel best meets their ability.

Students at Templestowe College – a public secondary school in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs – are grouped according to their skill or ability level, rather than their age.

“Entry students” (Year 7’s) must study four core units – English, maths, science and health/physical education – with other similar-aged students, and can begin to familiarise themselves with other mixed-aged students by choosing two units from their 130 different electives.

From Year 8 onwards, students have complete control over the course load and can work at a level they feel is best suited to their ability. A class can include anyone from 13 to 18 years of age.

Principal Pete Ellis said 20 per cent of Year 8-aged students took a VCE unit in 2017 and passed.

“Anything is possible”, Mr Ellis said.

"Before the lecture, I tweeted the title “Why Dance Is as Important as Math in Education.” I had a lot of positive responses and a number of incredulous ones. One tweet said, “Isn’t that going to be one of the shortest lectures ever?” Another said flatly, “Ken, dance is not as important as math.” One person tweeted, “So what? Telephones are more important than bananas. Ants are not as important as toilet ducks. Paper clips are more important than elbows.” (At least that was a creative response.) Some responses were more pertinent: “Is that so? Important for what and to whom? By the way I’m a math teacher.”

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, March 26, 10:09 PM
Today teachers use rule-based chatbots; tomorrow they will be able to build fully functional Artificial Intelligence models. Many automated chatbot platforms have already integrated natural language processing into their interactions, which means that we will soon be able to build our own "Jill Watson" assistants. An insightful look at the consumer market will help us realize that companies need to fully adapt their product to the consumers' needs and interests, to stay on top. In this field, seemingly insignificant alterations can bring immense popularity to a brand. In the digital age, teachers need to treat their profession in the same way, and continuously adapt their methods to the latest trends and students' interest. That is the only way for them to nurture the positive atmosphere and high student engagement in class. So, don’t hesitate to use chatbots and instant messaging apps for delivering knowledge. Latest tech will bring you closer to your students and help you to make your lectures more dynamic and engaging.
