The Most Important Non-Programming Skills for Programmers - Free Code Camp - Medium

"When I think about the people I would like to work with as a programmer, I think so much more about the non-technical skills rather than technical skills that make somebody a good co-worker.

In fact, all of the skills that are in this post contribute to writing good code that improves technical projects. Most of them are really helpful for careers outside of programming too, but I’m going to focus on why they’re useful for programmers specifically."

The Future Of Learning? Well, It's Personal : NPR | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
“If you do a Google image search for "classroom," you'll mostly see one familiar scene: rows or groups of desks, with a spot at the front of the room for the teacher. One teacher, many students: It's basically the definition of school as we know it, going back to the earliest days of the Republic. "We couldn't afford to have an individual teacher for every student, so we developed a way of teaching large groups," as John Pane, an education researcher at the RAND Corporation, puts it. Pane is among a wave of education watchers getting excited by the idea that technology may finally offer a solution to the historic constraints of one-to-many teaching. It's called personalized learning: What if each student had something like a private tutor, and more power over what and how they learned?”

Why Growth Mindset Still Has Some Growing to Do | EdSurge News


TWEETSHAREEMAIL
Over the summer, academics debated the impact of growth mindset, the belief that one’s intelligence can be developed with hard work and effort, and whether it can move the needle on academic performance. Even Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck, who is often credited with the term, chimed in with additional research supporting the efficacy of mindset interventions.

An Education Week survey found that the vast majority of educators believe that a growth-oriented mindset can help improve students’ motivation, commitment and engagement in learning. But the study found that applying those ideas to practice, and helping students shift their mindset around learning, remains an elusive challenge.

Those findings largely coincide with my observations as an administrator, coach, technology implementer, and now founder of an education company. Over the summer, my team ran a series of professional learning community sessions with dozens of educators across the country, focused on instructional practices that foster and support growth mindset. At these events, almost all teachers said they get the big ideas around growth mindset, but over 80 percent said their schools don’t implement them well.

How Learning Analytics Can Improve the K-12 Teaching and Learning Process - The Edvocate

How Learning Analytics Can Improve the K-12 Teaching and Learning Process - The Edvocate | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Spread the love

Edtech has changed the way the teaching and learning process works. Before this happened, if a teacher wanted to diagnose a child’s reading difficulties or tutor those on the brink of academic failure, they had to use human ingenuity to get things done. Or they had to manually calculate a mountain of data to gain some insight into the situation. But with the advent of learning analytics, all of that has changed.

Learning analytics are web-based measurements and reporting about student learning that is intended to help teachers improve the knowledge and skill acquisition of their students. This maximizes student learning potential while enhancing teaching and delivery methods. Though its application to education is relatively new, scientific disciplines have been using it for over forty years. Expansion into scholarship was birthed by advanced technology, and the data trails learners leave while using the internet. The data provides several benefits to aid educators and students.

The Maker Movement is a technological and creative revolution underway around the world. Fortunately for educators, the Maker Movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing. Embracing the lessons of the Maker Movement holds the keys to reanimating the best, but oft-forgotten learner-centered teaching practices. New tools and technology, such as 3D printing, robotics, microprocessors, wearable computing, e-textiles, “smart” materials, and new programming languages are being invented at an unprecedented pace. The Maker Movement creates affordable — even free — versions of these inventions, and shares tools and ideas online, creating a vibrant, collaborative community of global problem-solvers.

The article mainly talks about figures and relevant data about the impact of social networks at present, mainly in students .80% of students use cell phones to navigate in social networks. Due to the impact, the tendency to class classroom can be taken. First, integrating the use of social networks to the school curriculum, doing work and group discussions are some functionalities of social networks in the teaching area.

In his 2108 Letter to Shareholders, Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon, banished PowerPoint presentations from executive meetings and replaced them with “Narrative Structures.” Culture Shock! Storytelling instead of Bullet Points! Yes, you heard right. And if anyone knows a good idea, it’s probably Jeff. Amazon’s executive meetings now begin with participants spending 30 minutes reading stories about ideas and then discussing them. And it’s Bezos’ idea. The man who went from a new retailing idea to the world’s richest man in 23 years is advocating storytelling. And once again he’s right.
