By: K. Lauth et al. To keep pace with economic demands and industry needs, we should rethink STEM and computer science (CS) preparation now.
Opening in August of 2019, the Cube School is reimagining education through encouraging students to pursue their passions and providing them with opportunities to work on meaningful, real-world projects.
Blending Engineering, Entrepreneurial Mindset, and an Appreciation for the Variety of the Human Condition
The rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning is an opportunity to show up at the formation of a new era and ensure equity and empowerment for all. Here’s a look at how Dr. Amon Millner and his team at Olin College are doing just that.
Fifty-four percent of students say they enjoy programming courses “a lot," but few get to spend much time on it in school. Here are some resources to help.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates there will be 1.4 million computing jobs but only 400,000 computer-science graduates with the skills to fill them. Looking toward a future of work that includes automation, artificial intelligence and programming, there is no better time to introduce coding to your students.
By: Janice Mak. How can we expand access to computer science education to all students? First, we have to develop and equip all teachers to bring CS and computational skills to their students.
By: Kelsey Parrasch. Teachers who are nervous about incorporating computer science and coding into their classroom can try learning alongside their students. Engaging game-based learning and student competitions have the power to build confidence and interest in everyone involved.
By: Colin Angevine. How do “code,” “computer science,” and, “computational thinking,” fit together? What is motivating their introduction into schools, and how might they change education? Find out here.
To maximize the benefits of computer science education, we should be looking for ways to bring it into authentic PBL--but that is an undeniably tall order. One way is through data science. Another, it turns out, is through cybersecurity.
