Five steps to finding, implementing, and rolling out a technology platform in a pinch.
If we need students to be learning coding now, yet the schools are not ready for it on many levels, where does that leave us?
Professional development is out; professional learning is in. In this week’s blog post we visit Singapore schools again.

In this week’s blog post, we explore the value of computational thinking, first as it helps to explain a 30-year old, "cold case," empirical finding, and second as it may well be a "disruptive education intervention!"
