Hands-On Computer Science: Robotics in the Classroom 2.0

In the past, I have shared how hands-on learning empowers students to learn actively in ways that challenge them to solve real problems rather than with contrived word problems or worksheets that lack rigor and incentive. It is effective in early childhood learning and at the elite levels of MIT's Media Lab. It is particularly … Continue reading Hands-On Computer Science: Robotics in the Classroom 2.0

They have since expanded that effort dramatically with their Everyone Can Code initiative that provides tools and a curriculum for computer science instruction for the … Continue reading Computer Science With Apple
