Bringing Computational Thinking into the Primary Classroom - The Learner's Way - 13 views

    Interesting outlook on why teaching computer science is applicable and needed for everyone. Guzdial does a lot of work with Squeak (which is a forerunner of Scratch).

Computational Thinking: I do not think it means what you think it means - Medium - 32 views

    This is an excellent deconstruction of the pop term "computational thinking" and a reconstruction of Papert's real meaning (which is so much more powerful!).

Who is Bigger? - 45 views

    We have developed computational methods to measure historical significance through analysis of Wikipedia and other data sources. We rank historical figures just as Google ranks webpages, by integrating a diverse set of measurements about their reputation (including PageRank, article length, and readership) into estimates of their fame, explained by a combination of achievement (gravitas) and celebrity. We correct for the passage of time in a principled way, so we can fairly compare the significance of historical figures of different eras. - See more at:
