6 Surprising STEM Stats and Why They Matter to You – Ozobot It’s definitely a term you’ve heard before with some importance attached to it. But what is STEM exactly and why should it matter to you? Well, I’m glad you asked… First, let’s talk basics: STEM stands for Science, Technology Engineering and Math There are many highly technical, overly involved ways to explain STEM; but basically, it is a core teaching curriculum based on the four disciplines that make up the acronym. But, why STEM? Introduction: Evolution 101 : You are about to play NOVA’s Evolution Lab—a game that will help you to understand the ways scientists piece together the tree of life.

25 Years of Ed Tech - Athabasca University Press Listen to the audio version and accompanying podcast at In this lively and approachable volume based on his popular blog series, Martin Weller demonstrates a rich history of innovation and effective implementation of ed tech across higher education. From Bulletin Board Systems to blockchain, Weller follows the trajectory of education by focusing each chapter on a technology, theory, or concept that has influenced each year since 1994. edsurge The “teach kids to code” movement has many thinking that computer science is just coding. Often the two are conflated since coding is definitely the most visible component of computer science. It is the magic that turns ideas into products; it provides the motivation to learn computer science. Kids want to learn so they can make cool stuff that is meaningful to them. However computer science goes beyond just coding.

See all business plans Computational Thinking In our conversations with Scratchers, we heard young designers describe evolving understandings of themselves, their relationships to others, and the technological world around them. This was a surprising and fascinating dimension of participation with Scratch — a dimension not captured by our framing of concepts and practices. As the final step in articulating our computational thinking framework, we added the dimension of perspectives to describe the shifts in perspective that we observed in young people working with Scratch, which included three elements: expressing: realizing that computation is a medium of creation, "I can create." connecting: recognizing the power of creating with and for others, "I can do different things when I have access to others." questioning: feeling empowered to ask questions about the world, "I can (use computation to) ask questions to make sense of (computational things in) the world."

In my last EdSurge article, “Computer Science Goes Beyond Coding,” I wrote about the difference between coding and computer science, to help us understand what we mean by phrases like “Teach kids to code” and “Computer science for all.” In that article and in many other articles, there is another term that appears often: “Computational thinking.” Well, what is Computational Thinking (CT), and how does it differ from Coding and Computer Science—especially when it comes to classroom practice and instruction? What is Computational Thinking (CT)? My short definition: CT is a strategy that uses many of the powerful ideas in computer science to solve problems. Let’s get into a simple, but longer definition.
