Preparing Students for the Computational Future (EdSurge News)

Preparing Students for the Computational Future (EdSurge News) | teaching | Scoop.it
This is an edited excerpt from “How to Teach Computational Thinking,” first published by Stephen Wolfram on Sept. 7, 2016.

Pick any field “X,” from archaeology to zoology. There either is now a “computational X”, or there soon will be. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, farmers, whatever—the future of all these professions will be full of computational thinking. Whether it’s sensor-based medicine, computational contracts, education analytics or agriculture—success is going to rely on being able to do computational thinking well.

Computational thinking is going to be a defining feature of the future, and it’s an incredibly important thing to be teaching to kids today. But where does it fit into the standard educational curriculum? The answer, I think, is simple: everywhere!

Learning to look up again – controlling your smartphone addiction - Daily Genius | teaching | Scoop.it
Why do our mobile virtual homes take precedence over our real physical homes? Does our obsessive behaviour make us less interactive and engaging with real people? Are we becoming less human and morphing into ‘smombies’ (smartphone zombies)? And if so, what can we do about it to break our habits, change our behaviour and instead of spending our time looking down bathed in the reflective glare of our 5 inch screens learn to look up again?

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom | teaching | Scoop.it

In today’s technological world, there is no escaping the smartphone phenomenon. The average person uses their smartphone anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day. Most people are even checking their phones every 15 to 20 minutes while they’re awake. The ways in which smartphones have become such an essential part of modern life is staggering, and something to be aware of when teaching in a classroom.

Smartphones can be both a great educational tool and a great distraction in the classroom. It should come as no surprise that almost every child in the US owns or has access to a smartphone. Statistics show that 56 percent of children age 8 to 12 have a smartphone. That number jumps up to 88 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 17 have or have access to a smartphone. And a whopping 91 percent of middle and high school aged students primarily access the internet via their smartphones.

This change in the way we interact with technology and integrate it into our lives has come dramatically and fast. It’s sometimes hard for teachers, many of whom grew up in an era with no mobile phones or even the internet, to adapt to this fast-paced technological generation. While smartphones can easily be the downfall of your students’ attention spans and performance, they don’t have to be. More and more educators these days are incorporating modern technology and students’ own smartphones into their classroom to engage and excite students about learning. Below you will find useful tips on how to manage cell phone use in your classroom, and use it for your teaching benefit.

Why pay for Office and Photoshop when you can get these alternatives for free? Popular Science | teaching | Scoop.it
We rely on expensive computer programs to edit photos and video, deal with office work, and protect our computers from malware. But they're not our only options. Often, commercial studios will offer the most basic versions of their products free of charge. In other cases, volunteers who believe that software should be free will develop open-source alternatives. Between them, you can find free programs to cover just about any computing task.

However, not all free apps are created equal. We've narrowed down the plethora of options to highlight 10 of the finest free alternatives to pricey computer programs.

Five Ways Teachers Can Use—and Create—Augmented Reality Experiences - EdSurge News

Five Ways Teachers Can Use—and Create—Augmented Reality Experiences - EdSurge News | teaching | Scoop.it
Educators are constantly challenged to find ways to keep kids’ attention in class when, outside of school, their world is full of all kinds of highly compelling and visually stimulating media. Many educators find that gamifying learning keeps students engaged. BreakoutEDU, for example, is an educational game platform that includes a curated set of physical materials—think padlocks, boxes and invisible ink—and activities across a wide range of subjects and grade levels. Students might sort images annotated with letters by state of matter (solid, liquid, or gas), for instance, revealing a secret code word that gets them one step closer to the goal. BreakoutEDU is a physical game platform, requiring a significant amount of planning and manual configuration—setting combinations locks, writing clues on hint cards, hiding clues around the classroom—and then supervising the activity as the teams go about their game play. 

Augmented reality tools, however, reduce the time and effort required to set up gaming activities while allowing teachers to break through the noise and engage students with the type of immersive content they find in their daily lives. For example, after watching a 10-minute tutorial, Yvonne Rodriguez was able to create her own AR Experience by arranging components—which she describes as “digital LEGOs”—on her computer screen. “It’s just so easy,” says Rodriguez. “I am not a tech-savvy teacher at all. So if I can do it, anyone can do it.”

What is Blended Learning Infographic

What is Blended Learning Infographic | teaching | Scoop.it
Blended learning is now the strategy of choice for most major employers across the world – but few are taking full advantage of the opportunities it presents. Blended solutions can be so much more powerful than just simple combinations of classroom and eLearning, instead assisting the employee on every step of their learning journey. The What is Blended Learning Infographic provides a broad-ranging, contemporary description of blended learning as defined in the book More Than Blended Learning (Clive Shepherd, 2015). More Than Blended Learning (>BL) is a refreshingly different but simple new approach to the design of learning solutions. Blended solutions combine contrasting learning methods and media in order to maximise effectiveness and efficiency. The More Than Blended Learning approach goes a step further to ensure the blend results in application to real-world tasks and the learner is supported along the whole length of their learning journey.

3 reasons Millennials might choose Online Learning over a Traditional Degree

3 reasons Millennials might choose Online Learning over a Traditional Degree | teaching | Scoop.it

Traditional education tracks have been the most common way to further your career for decades, but recently online learning has begun to compete in that space.

Common career advice to young adults graduating high school is to get a degree, because you can only go so far without one. However, there are exceptions to every rule. With so many millennials carving their own path lately, it’s misleading to say a degree is necessary for success.

One way that millennials are finding success is by expanding their skill set via online learning. I don’t mean Youtube, though that can be a starting point to learn the basics of plenty of topics. By online learning, I mean formal learning platforms like Skillshare.

Diversas investigaciones lo confirman a diario. Mi interrogante es, ¿qué atractivo tienen los programas de aprendizaje en línea sobre los programas tradicionales?

  1. Su accesibilidad (apertura, ubicuidad, inclusividad)
  2. Los cursos son más fáciles de aprobar
  3. Los programas son más cortos
  4. Los cursos online son más económicos
  5. El reconocimiento de la Institución Educativa

Inspired by the human eye, researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed an adaptive metalens, that is essentially a flat, electronically controlled artificial eye. The adaptive metalens simultaneously controls for three of the major contributors to blurry images: focus, astigmatism, and image shift.

The Best Ways to Shift Learning Responsibilities to Our Students

The Best Ways to Shift Learning Responsibilities to Our Students | teaching | Scoop.it
What can teachers do to shift learning responsibilities to learners? Teachers may be observing the phenomenon wherein students become less engaged in the learning process. Certainly this can occur in environments with a rigid curriculum. Without intervention, this disengagement can stifle creativity and create the expectation that information is provided by the teacher. This leads learners to feel they have little control over their own learning process.

Teachers are in the position to foster engagement and develop necessary skills and self-motivation. Alongside this they can model persistence in the face of challenges to achieve a desired goal. Let’s talk about how teachers can shift learning responsibilities from them selves to their learners.
