Knowing the Definition


Computational Thinking

It was interesting to read about algorithim bias because I would have never thought that technology would be capable of that. It shows that the topic of bias can be explored across domains, allowing students to see the wide scope in which bias operates.

Teaching students about the importance of accuracy and clarity in their work through means of algorithims can be effective in helping them develop their critical thinking and communication skills.

It is so interesting to see that algorithims, though we may not call them that on a daily basis, are a part of our everyday life. It makes me question what other practices that I engage in may be tied to Computer Science.

Teaching students about algorithims can be beneficial on multiple facets because aside from presenting students to the concept as a whole, they are also being introduced to new and useful vocabulary that can be taken with them across subjects.

I think bringing awareness to the benefits that teaching coding has is so important. Coding allows students to engage in creativity on a different level that provides both a challenge and gives them the space to create to their likings.

Interacting with Technology Vs. Creating

If we are actually rehearsing what we are going to say rather than actually listening, are we truly listening? Though it may not seem like it, in order to formulate an appropriate response, I guess we do listen somewhat.

I many times struggle to think interdependently. I often run on to take on tasks that should require the assistance of others by myself, leading to burn out. I have to learn to rely on others in order to be my best and not so worn out.

Listening with empathy sounds like something very simple, yet can be so hard for us to do. If more of us were empathetic with one another, we would be in such a different place.

We should instill in our students the desire to learn, but also show them that learning can be fun. This may require us to spice up the curriculum, but would in turn, provide a higher engagement on behalf of students.

Humor is a great thing to have! Not only does it have its health benefits, but it also allows us to enjoy and appreciate the purity and great moments in life as well as those that are a bit more unconventional.

I don't feel like this habit is my go to at all! I plan hard in order to avoid any failure and setbacks. I have so many planners and lists and written plans to ensure the lack of failure that I fear.

A creative person is constantly thinking about ways they can achieve goals and actions while taking into account their objective rather than their obstacle.

It is important to both learn and be taught how to interpret and experience the world around us with our senses. In doing so, we are able to take advantage of the knowledge we gain from such experiences.

Thinking and communication mirror one another; if thinking is unclear, communication will also follow that same format. There have been times where my mind feels overloaded and communicating becomes a lot more loose and less accurate.

Past knowledge and old experiences become the foundation for our new ones. We learn from the past and apply it in the present (most times).

The habit of questioning things in the world around us allows us to be continuos learners. Inquiry allows us to develop more knowledge about a myriad of topics and a desire to learn more and more.

Striving for accuracy is a decision one makes to go above and beyond to achieve a high level of performance. High standards should not be pushed onto students, however, they should be reminded of their potential to meet such standards.
