Computing in the classroom: Learning Programming with educational robots

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This presentation will discuss a Scottish Computing course that BSc students take as part of their degree in Computing. The course, called ‘Computing in the classroom’, requires final year computing students to spend time in high school environments, shadowing the teacher and, with support, producing and teaching their own computational project materials. In this presentation I will highlight the strengths of the course for both students and teachers and discuss the highlights of the recent course introduction of educational robots in schools.
