European Commission project: “Solidarity is the glue that keeps our Union together” | #EU #Europe #Society

European Commission project: “Solidarity is the glue that keeps our Union together” | #EU #Europe #Society | ICT in Education | Scoop.it

During his state of the union address on September 14, 2016, European Commission President Juncker said: "There are many young, socially minded people in Europe willing to make a meaningful contribution to society and help show solidarity. We can create opportunities for them to do so... Solidarity is the glue that keeps our Union together."

According to the Commission, 25% of young people in the EU say that they have been involved in an organised voluntary activity in the past 12 months. Six percent say they have volunteered abroad. Of those who say they have not volunteered, 88% say that they did not have the opportunity to do so.

Target of 100,000 participants by 2020

At the same time, 80,000 job seekers are looking for work abroad in solidarity-related sectors. Enough reasons for the Commission to launch a program promoting work in the field of solidarity. The target is to have 100,000 young people joining the European Solidarity Corps by 2020.

According to the Commission, almost 24,000 people have registered for the Solidarity Corps up until now. Italians (4,000), Spanish (3,200) and Portuguese (2,400) are leading the list of registrations. Luxembourg is trailing in last position with 50 registrations.

5 Tips to Keep the Hour of Code Going All Year

5 Tips to Keep the Hour of Code Going All Year | ICT in Education | Scoop.it
Every year students all over the world celebrate the Hour of Code. The goal is to set aside one hour to give everyone a chance to learn about coding and its fun aspects. On code.org, organizers release a themed game to help build excitement. There have been Frozen, Star Wars and Moana coding themes, all to build students’ knowledge base but also to show them that coding really isn’t that difficult.

Coding helps to develop not only computer skills, but also logic, math, problem solving, design and more. Coding can happen in any classroom and touches every ­subject area. The skills that children acquire while learning to code can impact them far beyond the devices they program with.

Understanding the steps it takes to make a character move from one side of a maze to the other teaches students to analyze their thinking. If they fail, the code provides feedback to show them that they don’t have to be right every time — they just need to find out where they went wrong and try again.

The Hour of Code is a popular event. Just this past year, more than 164,000 individual coding events were held in classrooms around the world. However, in many of those classrooms, coding happens for just that hour, and then things get back to the normal routine. Coding doesn’t have to be a one-hour or one-time event, though. It can last all year long.

Here are five ways to make the Hour of Code last all year:

Asynchronous learning pedagogy

Asynchronous learning pedagogy | ICT in Education | Scoop.it

Asynchronous learning pedagogy is defined as teaching and learning that occurs when the interaction between the instructor and students is not constrained by time and place. It is based on the constructivist theory, and is a student-centered approach that emphasizes the importance of peer-to-peer interactions. Zsohar & Smith (2008) have identified three distinct benefits of asynchronous learning: students: 1) have an increased amount of time to prepare their responses, 2) can not interrupt other students when posting or speaking, and 3) have access to all written records of all discussions for later references. Disadvantages of using asynchronous learning include: i) loss of direct personal contact such as eye contact or facial expression, ii) loss of spontaneity when responding to questions, and iii) limitations to the type of discussion faculty can pose (Zsohar & Smith, 2008 and Anderson, 2009).

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, March 14, 2017 8:21 AM
Team building games offer students fun opportunities to hone critical skills for success in the modern workplace. Students (and future employees!) that value teamwork are more motivated and creative. They’re also better at problem solving and communicating with one another and have a higher level of trust. We already know students love working in groups. Why not make a game of it?
Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, March 18, 2017 12:10 AM
Critical thinking is the most important skill to develop, since in these times of information at hand, we cannot believe everything we see, read, and hear, and that is why it is important to develop this ability as it allows us to be alert and question everything that comes from these means of information. Is a skill that moves a student from concrete ideas to abstract and inferred concepts. Critical thinking allows us to analyze outcomes, compare ideas, identify parallels, sequence events, synthesize information and draw conclusions from a given body of knowledge. Whether it is the proof behind a mathematics formula or an implied tone in an essay, critical thinking skills enable students to solve problems in the real world and on exams in school. Meghan Moll (2014) suggests five tools to develop the critical thinking skills necessary for success on every high school or college test and assignment. 1. Brain games: Recently, websites dedicated to training your brain have enjoyed increased popularity. Lumosity, for example, provides games that aid in improving memory and problem-solving. From timed matching games to order sequence memorization, websites like this can aid in cognition and the ability to ask, "What is the next step?" This skill is critical to learning how to approach complex problems on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. Rather than playing time-wasting games when you have a lull in your day, search online for brain teasers and peruse the plethora of brain games at your fingertips. 2. Logic puzzles: Before the Internet, puzzles intended to exercise your brain were published in books. Collections of crossword puzzles, logic problems, riddles, sudoku, word problems and word searches can be found at your local bookstore or library. The puzzles in these books are a wonderful strategy to activate different parts of your brain for a round or two of mental gymnastics, and many collections even discuss what each puzzle is meant to target within the mind. 3. Board games: This suggestion may seem strange at first, but do not balk. Choose board games that require more than luck – namely, strategy – for players to win. Any game where players must carefully consider their next move, recognize patterns and remember details will aid in honing critical thinking skills. Certain games like Rubik’s Cube are single-player, while others involve multiple people. Checkers, chess and Mastermind are two-player games that challenge you to plan several steps ahead. Games like Boggle and Scrabble require analyzing information quickly and formulating words, while Clue and Risk test and strengthen your ability to anticipate and react to others’ moves, as well as infer motives. 4. Journaling: Daily reflection – such as maintaining a journal – is a simple way to revisit your day, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to explore ideas. Writing encourages you to expand upon your thoughts and form connections. A journal forces you to slow down and focus on just one or two ideas at a time, which hectic schedules don't otherwise allow. Use your journal to record important ideas and questions and narratives about your life. 5. Book clubs: Students who read for understanding find it far easier to think critically than those who rush to finish. Analyzing a book requires you to delve deeper and ponder complex questions. When reading, think about why the book was written the way it was, what motivates certain characters, and how plot developments may be symbols of foreshadowing. Locate a book club to hone these skills. You will read works you otherwise may not have, and you will learn to examine character development, plot, symbolism and a whole host of other features.
