Not all social apps are bad. Most of the apps our kids use are truly an extension of your child's "real world" social life. For the most part, our kids talk to people they only talk to in "real life." With the influence of technology in our kids social lives, we can't panic or over…

Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume - EdSurge News

Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume - EdSurge News | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"A love for avocado lattes and Snapchat filters are just a few of the stereotypes following Millennials these days. But students are now pushing back on these generational generalizations, noting that assumptions regarding their attitudes, hobbies, and abilities are hurting them academically. One of the biggest misconceptions students at last week’s New Media Consortium’s Summer Conference (NMC) brought up was the idea that millennials are digital natives.

"Most people have heard this story before: the eight-year-old son teaching his forty-year-old dad how to use some new device or app. However, despite being an allegory of our times, a lot has been said off-the-record about misconceptions regarding students’ technological abilities. In an interview with EdSurge, Alexandra Pickett, the Director of New York State University’s Center for Online Teaching Excellence, noted that many of her students know how to use online platforms such as Twitter and Facebook for fun, but have no idea how to leverage them for academic and professional use. It’s a point the students at NMC echoed."

The 5th ‘C’ of 21st Century Skills? Try Computational Thinking (Not Coding) | #ModernEDU #ModernLEARNing #ModernSociety #STEM

The 5th ‘C’ of 21st Century Skills? Try Computational Thinking (Not Coding) | #ModernEDU #ModernLEARNing #ModernSociety #STEM | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it
There is growing recognition in the education systems around the globe that being able to problem-solve computationally—that is, to think logically and algorithmically, and use computational tools for creating artifacts including models and data visualizations—is rapidly becoming a prerequisite competency for all fields.

In 2012, the U.K. national curriculum began introducing computer science (CS) to all students. Singapore, as part of its “Smart Nation” initiative, has labeled developing CT as a “national capability.” Other countries, from Finland to South Korea, China to Australia and New Zealand, have launched large-scale efforts to introduce CT in schools, as either a part of new CS curricula or integrated into existing subjects. Here in the U.S., former President Barack Obama called on all K-12 students to be equipped with CT skills as part of an “Computer Science for All” initiative in 2016. Most emergent efforts in the US involving CT are currently part of CS curricula, although CT is increasingly seeing integration into STEM (especially science) learning.

Interesting perspective - great to see that CT can be associated with learning areas other than STEM.
Vivalist's curator insight, March 1, 2018 10:21 AM
Computational Thinking (CT) is "the thought processes involved in understanding a problem and expressing its solutions in such a way that a computer can potentially carry out the solution."

Toys such as the recently Kickstarted Turing Tumble do just this: introduce kids to the notion of algorithms.

It's a very powerful field of studies for kids and grown-ups alike, because it helps understanding what's behind the curtains when it comes to computation.

It teaches how to divide a big problem into bunch of smaller ones that are easier to solve - and this is a solid skill to own.
Angela's curator insight, July 12, 2019 10:20 AM
Multiple representations of computational thinking may encourage those with math anxiety to make  connections between the processes to how they see and solve the world. Not one right way to see and solve  even though there may be one right answer.

Without changes in education, the future of work will leave more people behind - The Hechinger Report

Without changes in education, the future of work will leave more people behind - The Hechinger Report | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"A glimpse into America’s future labor market suggests a boom in health care jobs, soaring employment in clean energy and a continued decline in manufacturing positions.

 

"Those are among the key takeaways from 10-year employment projections released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The findings offer more evidence of widening socioeconomic inequality, the migration of jobs to the service sector and a drop in the number of middle-class jobs for workers with only a high school diploma.

 

"This unfolding economic shift is challenging educators to shape curricula that will prepare students for positions requiring an elusive combination of soft skills — the ability to solve problems, communicate effectively and work with others — along with technical capacities.


“The skill requirements in jobs have increased remarkably in their depth and breadth,” said Anthony P. Carnevale, research professor and director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. “The pace of change is outrunning the ability of educators to provide those skills and to qualify people for entry-level jobs.”

The second reason we may see limited or no creativity in the process of teaching and learning is the focus on reaching targets.

Doing only that which is already being or has been done (despite success or the lack of it) to achieve the target is a real problem.

It's important to recognize that a growth mindset is an overall paradigm for personal development rather than a pedagogical tool for measuring academic accomplishment.

 

5 Growth Mindset Practices

In their groundbreaking book, Professional Learning Communities at Work, Richard DuFour and Robert Eaker say it clearly when pointing out the issue that comes about when change initiatives are considered "a task to complete rather than an ongoing process." If we really want to improve our schools, our work, and the education of our students, we can do so by adopting a new mindset -- for everyone -- that would include:

 

  1. Being humble enough to accept that there are things about ourselves and our practices that can improve
  2. Becoming part of professional teams that value constructive critique instead of criticism
  3. Treating setbacks as formative struggles within the learning process instead of summative failures
  4. Realizing the restrictive role that timelines can play in reaching high standards, and using foundational philosophies such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to map systems so that everyone's growth is supported
  5. Create flexible grouping at all times so that nobody's trapped in any one course level or particular type of work.
