Advancing Computational Thinking Across K-12 Education - Digital Promise - 0 views

  •  
    "Thanks to the successes of campaigns like the Hour of Code and this week's Computer Science Education Week, educators, policymakers, and families around the country are realizing the value of coding and computer science in K-12 education. But how do "code," "computer science," and, "computational thinking," fit together? What is motivating their introduction into schools, and how might they change education?"

To code or not to code in the pre-k classroom? Yes, please do. - 1 views

    "If there is one piece of advice that is drilled into you as a new parent, it is to limit screen time. Bringing home our first baby, I may have not known how to effectively swaddle or change a diaper, but I did know, "back is best" and "no screen time for children under two." Yet, screens are something we as parents are constantly interacting with. In those early days of parenting, our parents laughed as we announced that we would not expose our children to screens. Yet screens are such a piece of our world. How could I expect a child not to find interest in the screens and technology that we interact with routinely? Does this abstinence approach to teaching new parents and those who work with our youngest learners do more harm than good? Does coding and computational thinking have a place in early childhood education? Yes, it certainly does. "

How to Stop Killing the Love of Reading | Cult of Pedagogy - 1 views

  •  
    "But when I see what my kids do in school for "reading," it doesn't really look like reading. I ask them what books they are reading in school, and a lot of times they give me a blank stare. What they do in reading, they tell me, is mostly worksheets about reading. Or computer programs that ask them to read passages, not books, and answer multiple-choice questions."

    Some helpful tips to stop taking the fun out of reading. Enjoyment needs to be the priority.

Inquiry vs Direct Instruction - The Great Debate and How it Went Wrong - The Learner's Way - 5 views

  •  
    There is a debate taking place in the world of education. It is not a new debate but recently it has gathered new energy and the boundary between polite discussion of opposing views and hostility has been stretched.

Finding a new paradise for education in times of chaos - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    Through any lens schools are complex places. A melting pot of human, social, political, economic, technological, physical and philosophical tensions. At once the stronghold of our cultural traditions and facilitators of our future wellbeing, schools serve as pillars of stability constructed at the event horizon between our now and our tomorrow. Perhaps at this point in time more than ever is this tension between the role that schools play in indoctrinating our youth into the ways of society at odds with the imperative to prepare them for their futures.

PRTV - PROJECT ROCKIT - 0 views

  •  
    "We're excited to be partnering with Google / YouTube to bring you PROJECT ROCKIT TV - creating conversations around the kind of stuff we don't often get to talk about at school. Through our twelve-part series, we answer questions from students, like:

    How do I handle hate in online gaming? 

    How can I better support friends when times are tough?

    What should I do if someone is pressuring me to send private photos?

    How can I make good stuff go viral?"
