The self-organizing computer course | Shimon Schocken

TED Talks Education

Shimon Schocken and Noam Nisan developed a curriculum for their students to build a computer, piece by piece. When they put the course online -- giving away the tools, simulators, chip specifications and other building blocks -- they were surprised that thousands jumped at the opportunity to learn, working independently as well as organizing their own classes in the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). A call to forget about grades and tap into the self-motivation to learn.

Работая независимо, эти альтруисты создали первые «массовые открытые онлайн курсы» (MOOCs). Это призыв забыть об оценках и использовать самомотивацию для обучения.

TEDTalks 교육

시몬 쇼켄과 노암 니산은 자신의 학생들이 부품을 하나씩 만들어 컴퓨터를 만드는 교육 과정을 개발했다. 이 과정을 온라인에 -- 도구와 시뮬레이터, 칩 사양과 다른 조립 부품과 함께 제공하여 -- 올렸을 때, 그걸 배우려는 기회을 찾아, 독자적으로 그리고 최초의 대량 개방 과정(MOOCs)에서 공부하려는 수천명이 모여드는 것을 보고 그들은 매우 놀랐다. 성적을 잊고, 배우면서 자기 동기 부여에 익숙해지려는 시도였다.
