HackingSTEM: Using Computational Thinking to Understand Earthquakes

Happy Computer Science Education Week!

Millions of students worldwide are in the process of discovering the possibilities of instructing machines to accomplish tasks. Whether completing the Minecraft Hour of Code tutorial, or watching a Pixar In a Box episode on Khan Academy, the spirit of discovery, experimentation and the art of Computer Science is celebrated while students build core 21st century software engineering skills.

This month, the Education Workshop has partnered with the California Academy of Sciences and KQED to combine coding with mechanical engineering and data science to empower students to use computational thinking to experience how engineers and computer scientists are working together to mitigate the impact of earthquakes.… Visit the author's original post

MEC Monday: Technology Guest Speakers for Hour of Code

Last week for our MEC Monday blog post we looked ahead to the upcoming #Skypeathon (November 29th & 30th – mark your calendars!) by exploring the Skype in the Classroom Personal Development Webinar, hosted by Skype Master Teacher and MIE Expert Jed Dearybury. The webinar took place last week, but the recording is now available on the same page within the Microsoft Educator Community.

This week, we’re once again going to preview and upcoming global event by looking at some of the supporting materials that can be found on the MEC, and showing you how to get involved.

The Hour of Code Kazakhstan

В честь всемирной недели информатики наш колледж принял участие в акции The Hour of Code. В этой акции приняло участие аж больше 160 стран мира! Студенты и преподаватели на практике убедились в том, что программирование это очень интересно и так же благотворно влияет на развитие ребенка. Наши педагоги после участие в этой акции начали программировать вместе со своими детьми дома! Развивайтесь сами и развивайте ваших детей! Это интересно и захватывающе :)

Don’t Miss this Chance "Dec. 8-14, 2014": Let your Students CODE for an Hour!

  

We embrace the use of tablets trend this year in our school. Without any training, teachers were asked to start using them in their classes. It is not just keeping the e-content of a variety of subjects on these tablets and browsing them when needed. We eagerly want to create an interactive environment where students can think critically and creatively, collaborate, and construct new knowledge together. 

I strongly agree that teachers need some professional development chances in this area, so they can integrate this new technology into their curricula effectively.
