Ask Yourself, Why Am I Grading This? “If I don’t grade it, students won’t do it.” This reasoning leaves teachers with piles of work to grade, but I wonder how much of that time spent assigning points to student work results in improved student performance. I fell into this trap at the start of my teaching career. I gave points for completing annotations, bringing books to class, and completing homework. Conrad Wolfram on Computational Thinking. Schools around the world teach calculation.

Conrad Wolfram on Computational Thinking

But computers do that far better and faster than humans. There’s no need to add fractions, teach long division or factor polynomials–let computers do that. Instead, “humans should learn to use computing tools to address increasingly complex problems.” That’s the conclusion of Conrad Wolfram, Strategy Director at Wolfram Research, the world’s leading computational resource, as outlined in his new book, The Math(s) Fix: An Education Blueprint for the AI Age. “The maths taught around the world today does not fit how it is used in the real world.

Instead of torturing kids with memorizing and executing hand calculation procedures, we should be teaching computational thinking. Wolfram makes the case that computation thinking is required in all fields and in everyday living–and that no one does calculations by hand. In every STEM field, the order of introduction has been driven by the complexity of the calculation. Student/Parent Tutorials - Google Drive.

Learning to Interview Helps High School Students Build Communication Skills

When done right—with preparation and practice—such a conversation gives teenagers a sense of accomplishment, relevance, and agency in the world. Interviewing requires students to listen, focus, think on their feet, and react appropriately to what the other person says.

Asia In-Depth Podcast: Kevin Rudd on the 'Avoidable War' Between the United States and China

But after decades of relative stability, Sino-American ties have frayed. Preventing further deterioration in the years ahead is seen as crucial to global peace and security. Let's get a big bang out of science. Far from being a threat to faith, modern science is an invitation to get better acquainted with the force behind the universe.

Let's get a big bang out of science

How can you believe in evolution?” A Christian woman accuses me. I explain that I don’t believe in evolution. I accept evolution as a scientific theory in the same way I accept the theory of gravity. In 2006 National Geographic News reported that only 14 percent of Americans thought evolution is “definitely true.” Americans are becoming more and more scientifically illiterate. Those who resist science are not defending our faith. In just the past few decades we have learned more about the universe than all the humans who came before us. Evolution means humanity’s place in the universe may be more, not less, significant.

Our global choices will determine the quality of life for future generations. Can Artificial Intelligence Help or Hinder Educators? — MI Oasis. This article by Geoff Johnson raises the interesting question of where AI can be helpful to educators, and where it may fall short.

Can Artificial Intelligence Help or Hinder Educators? — MI Oasis

Certainly, AI has its advantages—as Johnson points out, teachers can spend more time actually teaching, and less time grading, setting short answer tests, keeping attendance records, organizing syllabi, and the like. And it is also possible that, as we learn more about students’ strengths and challenges, we can tailor educational software to the learner’s profiles.
