How to Effectively Introduce Coding and Computational Thinking into Your Classroom

How to Effectively Introduce Coding and Computational Thinking into Your Classroom | Transforming Teaching | Scoop.it
The inclusion of coding and computational thinking (CT) skills across all levels of education is gaining momentum worldwide. Here at home, the Ministry of Education recently announced a focus on coding and CT skills in our Ontario schools. What follows are recommendations related to how large jurisdictions can adequately prepare our teachers to introduce and foster the development of coding and CT skills in our students.  

These recommendations draw on my experience teaching high school computer science and facilitating professional learning for both practicing and pre-service teachers. They are also based on observations from my work in research projects focused on coding and CT across grade levels.

Good, clear infographic comparing different learning theories alongside connectivism. Interesting to consider, whether you appreciate the theory or not.

Five Ways to Boost Student Engagement with Flow Theory - John Spencer @spencerideas

Five Ways to Boost Student Engagement with Flow Theory - John Spencer @spencerideas | Transforming Teaching | Scoop.it
If we want students to develop a maker mindset, we need to empower them to hit a state of creative flow. Flow Theory explains what happens when we hit that place of “optimal experience,” where you are fully engaged, present, and focused. The following blog post explores what it means to help students reach a state of flow. A word of caution here. Student engagement is a very personal, internal thing. It starts with the student. You cannot force your students to be engaged in their learning. They have to own it. In other words, the highest place of student engagement isn’t really engagement. It’s empowerment.

But you are the architect that can build the systems that make flow a reality in your classroom. If you’re interested in this, check out the free Flow Theory Blueprint and Toolbox at the bottom of this post.
