Dr Rebecca Vivian and her international K-12 Computer Science (CS) education colleagues were accepted to present a special workshop session about conducting K-12 quantitative computing education research at the 2020 SIGCSE (Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education) Conference in the US in March. The session aimed to up-skill interested researchers and educators new to research.
The CSER Team is made up of a group of passionate Digital Technology fans from the education sector based across Australia. Drawn together by a common purpose to support teachers and students in this critical area, we have been so fortunate to work with thousands of teachers and schools for the past 3 and half years. Our team members have spent countless hours preparing engaging interactive workshops, travelling far and wide by car, plane, train and sometimes ferry to reach teachers in both metro and remote locations.
As a valued member of our community, we would like to share with you an important update about the face-to-face and lending library components of our K-12 Digital Technologies Education program as we transition to a new phase of teacher and school support.
Thank you to all the teachers out there, you are doing a great job! The CSER team has been working on some additional resources to support our wonderful teacher community through these unprecedented times.
Ordering hot drinks, such as coffee, at a cafe is a familiar experience to most students and provides an excellent context for students thinking about algorithm design, including conditionals (if/else), lists, loops and variables.
Feeling a bit overwhelmed with the pace of change at the moment? You are not alone, together we will work through it! Toni Falusi, our Canberra based Project Officer shared this insight into recent changes for our work and how we can support you.
