Preparing Students to Innovate with Computational Thinking - Digital Promise

Preparing Students to Innovate with Computational Thinking - Digital Promise | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Talladega County Schools prepares students to use computing skills and knowledge in future career and college opportunities by offering pathways for computational thinking from kindergarten to 12th grade. Every day, students in our district engage with key computational thinking competencies such as algorithmic thinking, collecting and analyzing data, decomposing problems, and building models and simulations.

The work of our district was recently recognized by the Council on Competitiveness, a collaborative of representatives from industry, government, business, and education that meets about economic competitiveness. The Council on Competitiveness invited Dr. Suzanne Lacey, Superintendent of Talladega County Schools, and me to participate in the Forum for Advanced Computing to discuss the impact of supercomputing on the future economy.

This Teacher Makes Financial Literacy Personal for Students | EdSurge News

This Teacher Makes Financial Literacy Personal for Students | EdSurge News | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Jacqueline Prester was a self-proclaimed hustler in middle school. Mowing lawns, babysitting—she took the initiative to earn her own money. But she was also a responsible moneymaker, using the envelope system to budget every cent before she knew it was an actual budgeting strategy. Back then, her friends rolled their eyes when she tried to share her financial savvy.

Fast forward two decades and Prester is a popular business and technology teacher at Mansfield High School in Massachusetts, working to give students real-life financial skills. Only this time her audience is keen to learn. (Her Personal Finance classes always reach their 28 student capacity.)

Students are learning about personal finance, but not just because that's the name of the class. They're making it personal.

Prester’s passion is infectious, and the content she chooses—like Pathway To Financial Success created by Discovery Education and Discover—immerses students in authentic lessons with videos, interactive modules and real-world connections.
Pathway To Financial Success Video: Being Financially Responsible

EdSurge caught up with Prester to find out how she packs her classes with willing learners and to uncover her secret to finding compelling financial literacy content. She also shared how and why she helped pass a new Massachusetts bill focused on financial literacy.

In the early 18th century, the novel was seen as a frivolous and trivial form at best, a morally corrupting one at worst. Given that the primary readers of novels were women, the belief smacks of patriarchal condescension and a kind of thought control.

6 Tips for Teaching Poetry Writing to Teens

6 Tips for Teaching Poetry Writing to Teens | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
In some ways, what you need to teach poetry well is a lot like what you need to write poetry well: You have to care a lot about your subject matter, and it’s important to foster conditions that inspire creativity. When these conditions are in place, teaching students to write poetry becomes much more fun, imaginative, and productive.
