Building a Foundation of Computer Science for All

In President Obama's State of the Union Address, he wants to expand computer science in schools across the country saying, "in the coming years we should build on that progress by..offering every student the hands-on-computer science and math classes that them job-ready on day one." The White House announced a new initiative of CS for All.  The National Science Foundation and the Department of Education will lead.  The article details some of the initiative's details.  …See More

About The Educator Network

The Educator Network is one of the networks of the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center. This network is designed to join educators and TDLC scientists in conversations about teaching and learning especially as it relates to timing. What mechanisms determine the time course of learning itself and what general principles explain the dynamics of learning across multiple scales and domains. You are invited to submit questions, start discussions, or react to articles. Please feel free to include videos, pictures and links to other research articles.  If you have a good idea, we'd love to hear it.  The scientists at The Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center want to hear from educators.  Likewise, we hope educators will benefit from learning about current research and the translation of that research to the classroom. If you want to start a discussion please use the Forum button.  You can reply to the topic by clicking on the topic title.  There is also a BLOG section if you would just like to ask a question or comment on an issue of interest.

Emotient and the TDLC All Hands Meeting

Posted by Alec Barron on February 9, 2014 at 8:38am 6 Comments

I loved the talks yesterday at the TDLC meeting.  After hearing about emotient again, I had several thoughts:

1) I'm curious how the software compares to experienced teachers.  Can emotient beat out the perceptions of teachers?  I’ve always felt that over time, I’ve improved at inferring what the facial expressions of my scholars are.  I’m curious how effective I am at doing this in either a whole class, small group, or a one-on-one setting.  If I’m not as good as…
