Journal club: Collaborative Coding in the Cloud

February 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
zoom

Join us to discuss Collaborative Coding in the Cloud on Monday 6th February at 2pm GMT More and more software development tools are available in the cloud, with tools like Replit, CodingRooms, GitHub Codespaces, Amazon Web Services Cloud9, JetBrains and Eclipse all offering online tools for developers to code collaboratively in the cloud. Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) which have traditionally been available as “fatter” clients are increasingly available as “thinner” web-based clients running in a browser. These tools can lower some of…

RPi online seminar: Moving from equity to justice in computing instruction for youth

February 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
online

Moving from equity to justice in computing instruction for youth (7 February 2023) Dr Jean Salac (University of Washington) With many countries worldwide integrating Computer Science (CS) and Computational Thinking (CT) instruction at the primary school level, it is crucial that we ensure that computing instruction is effective for all students. In this talk, Jean will present her work in identifying inequities in elementary computing instruction and in developing a learning strategy, TIPP&SEE, to address these inequities. Students using TIPP&SEE…

RPi online seminar: Integrating primary computing and literacy through multimodal storytelling

March 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
online

Integrating primary computing and literacy through multimodal storytelling (7 March 2023) Dr Bobby Whyte (Raspberry Pi Foundation) Most research focused on integrating computing education into existing classroom practices has centred on supporting learning in science, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Conversely, research in non-STEM areas is less explored. In this talk, we discuss the value of integrating computing in non-STEM areas in primary education. More specifically, we explore in detail the integration of computing and literacy education and consider the implications…

RPi online seminar: Teaching primary learners how to be data citizens

May 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
online

Teaching primary learners how to be data citizens (9 May 2023) Kate Farrell (University of Edinburgh) Data science is the ability to collect, analyse, interpret, and communicate and ask questions about data. As technology makes it easier to collect vast amounts of data, the skills to use data to solve problems will become even more important to today’s learners. This session will introduce you to how data literacy can be taught in primary and early years education across different curricular areas.…

RPi online seminar: Young children’s ScratchJr project scores and processes across a 12-week coding curriculum

June 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
online

Young children’s ScratchJr project scores and processes across a 12-week coding curriculum (6 June 2023) Apittha Unahalekhaka (Tufts University) This seminar will present two ScratchJr studies, which were part of the Coding as Another Language (CAL) project. The first study is the development and testing of the ScratchJr Project Rubric, which has been used to evaluate children’s purposeful creation on the coding and project design aspects of ScratchJr. The study showed that although children (ages 6–8) were able to create more complex projects over…

WiPSCE 2023

September 27 - September 29
University of Cambridge Cambridge, United Kingdom

The 18th WiPSCE Conference on Primary and Secondary Computing Education Research Research in primary and secondary computing education is a young field with strong ties to national educational systems. Nevertheless, its theories, methods, and results are internationally applicable and of interest to researchers and practitioners in the field. WiPSCE is the premier international venue for school-level computing education. It aims to improve the exchange of research and practice relevant to teaching and learning in primary and secondary computing education, teacher…
