    Ivanka Trump Promotes Access to High-Quality Coding and Computer Science Education Programs

    Joaquina Erdmann

    Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump arrived at Detroit Design 139 in Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday to participate in an event promoting access to high-quality coding and computer science education programs in K-12 schools.

    Ms. Trump contributed to a panel of tech industry leaders organized and moderated by the Internet Association’s CEO, Michael Beckerman, who asked Trump how she came to be a part of the conversation on computer science in schools. “Computer science and coding are priorities for the administration as we think about pathways to jobs and alignment of education to in demand jobs in the modern economy,” Trump responded. The panel discussed the importance of establishing programs in K-12 schools that provide students with the skill set necessary to enable their generation, and the economy as a whole, to thrive.

    Companies across the country are supporting the federal government’s initiatives to expand science, technology, engineering, and

    Technology, Innovation, and Education | Harvard Graduate School of Education

    Joaquina Erdmann

    The Technology, Innovation, and Education (TIE) Program nurtures creative leaders in education toward researching and designing new technologies and media that promote powerful teaching and engaged learning.

    TIE asks you to consider, “Who are the users, and what educational challenges are they grappling with?” — choosing the medium or technology that delivers the most effective learning experience for your specific goal. Technology is the means, not the mission, for harnessing innovation and creativity to improve educational outcomes for all learners.

    Whether it’s a course on designing cutting-edge technologies, a practicum on large-scale distance learning, or a course on evaluating the impact of educational apps, we concentrate on the cognitive, affective, and social dimensions of learning, not on the bit rate.

    Senior Lecturer Joe Blatt, faculty director

    TIE is a one-year program for people from a wide variety of academic, professional, and personal backgrounds. No previous computer

    Path to a free self-taught education in Computer Science!


    Open Source Society University - Computer Science

    The OSSU curriculum is a complete education in computer science using online materials.
    It’s not merely for career training or professional development.
    It’s for those who want a proper, well-rounded grounding in concepts fundamental to all computing disciplines,
    and for those who have the discipline, will, and (most importantly!) good habits to obtain this education largely on their own,
    but with support from a worldwide community of fellow learners.

    It is designed according to the degree requirements of undergraduate computer science majors, minus general education (non-CS) requirements,
    as it is assumed most of the people following this curriculum are already educated outside the field of CS.
    The courses themselves are among the very best in the world, often coming from Harvard, Princeton, MIT, etc.,
    but specifically chosen to meet the following criteria.

    Courses must:

    22 Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology in Education

    Joaquina Erdmann

    The modern classroom has taken several steps forward in its evolution of the learning environment in the past 25 years. Many of the benefits that we have seen in this setting are due to the introduction of new technology options for students. Instead of having a single computer for a class to use or a laboratory environment for the entire school placed in one room, we can now help students learn at their table or desk with items issued to them directly.

    Our development of the Internet since 1989 has helped us to include more technological access to information in the modern classroom as well. If you grew up as an 80’s kid, then you had the A/V cart come into your class to watch educational videos and maybe have a snack. Now students get to play interactive learning games, compete against other students, and have their educational statistics tracked

    We support and champion design and technology education in schools

    Joaquina Erdmann

    We are a membership organisation providing advice, support and training for those involved in teaching design, engineering and technology. We work closely with government, awarding bodies, Ofsted and other regulators, advising on the curriculum and lobbying on behalf of the subject. We also work with employers and corporate partners to help promote the value of the subject and the range of careers and opportunities to which it can lead. We specialise in developing links between education and industry to mutual benefit.

    Design and technology pupils develop designing and making skills, learn about electronics, computing, engineering, CAD, CAM, robotics, materials and textiles technology. They also develop business critical skills in problem-solving, innovation and team-work.

    So… How Important is Design and Technology? …
