Computational Thinking Printable Activity Cards uk-bebras-cards.pdf - 1 views

  •  
    The Bebras cards are designed to enable pupils to develop their
    computational thinking skills, whilst at the same time providing an
    introduction to more advanced computing concepts.
    Computational Thinking
    Each card is aligned to one of the following computational
    thinking concepts, which are indicated in the top right-hand
    corner of each card.
     Patterns
     Algorithms
     Logic
     Abstraction
    Task Difficulty
    The difficulty of the task on each card is indicated by the icon in
    the bottom right-hand corner.
     = Easy
     = Medium
     = Hard
    Answers and Other Materials
    Answers to tasks, ideas for teaching and national curriculum links
    can be found at: www.bebras.uk
    Tip: pupils will need an exercise book or a piece of paper in order
    to record their answers to each activity

Creative Computing - An introductory computing curriculum using Scratch - 1 views

  •  
    "Computer science and computing-related fields have long been introduced to young people in a way that is disconnected from their interests and values - emphasizing technical detail over creative potential. Creative computing supports the development of personal connections to computing, by drawing upon creativity, imagination, and interests."

Welcome! - Computational Thinking Curriculum at Excel - 0 views

  •  
    "At Excel Public Charter School, we place a strong focus on integrating computational thinking within our curriculum across all disciplines. To us, computational thinking means solving hard problems of all kinds using ideas from computer science. These include algorithmic thinking, decomposition, pattern recognition and abstraction, as well as confidence in the face of ambiguity and tenacity to persist through challenges requiring iteration and experimentation.

    Our computational thinking curriculum is freely provided here for you to incorporate within your own classrooms. You'll find lessons divided into disciplines along the top of this and every other page. With these lessons and projects, we hope you will encourage your students to grow and flourish as computational thinkers, ready to face the real-world challenges of their generation!"

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?"

Will Robots Take Our Children's Jobs? - The New York Times - 1 views

  •  
    "Like a lot of children, my sons, Toby, 7, and Anton, 4, are obsessed with robots. In the children's books they devour at bedtime, happy, helpful robots pop up more often than even dragons or dinosaurs. The other day I asked Toby why children like robots so much.

    "Because they work for you," he said.

    What I didn't have the heart to tell him is, someday he might work for them - or, I fear, might not work at all, because of them.

    It is not just Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking who are freaking out about the rise of invincible machines. Yes, robots have the potential to outsmart us and destroy the human race. But first, artificial intelligence could make countless professions obsolete by the time my sons reach their 20s."
