Journal for Computing Teachers (JCT) Fall 2008

  • Comments 1

Are you a member of the Special Interest Group for Computing Teachers (SIGCT) of ISTE? If you are then you probably know that the latest issue of the Journal for Computing Teachers is out. If not, well, think about signing up. Either way the Fall 2008 issue is here.

From the web site:

The Journal for Computing Teachers (JCT) is a production of the Special Interest Group for Computing Teachers (SIGCT) of ISTE. The mission of SIGCT is to enhance precollege instruction in computer science. Toward that end, we seek and share information with our membership through JCT. Items included normally address the content or pedagogy of programming and computer literacy/fluency courses or instructional aids for them. We are interested in

  • articles
  • well-reasoned opinion pieces
  • book, software, and site reviews
  • reports of/from conferences, programming contests, etc.
  • letters to the editor
  • advertisements for and announcements of appropriate instructional materials and profession conferences

The article An Introduction to Sorting from a Human Perspective by Lon Levy looks very interesting even if the code samples are in Scheme. :-)

  • Hi Alfred,

    The good news for you is that the first set of samples are in a pseduo-code, the second set are in DrScheme (not true Scheme), and the third set are in Java.  From there, one could rewrite them in most other languages.

    Thanks for the kind words and I will look forward to seeing you at SIGCSE.

    Lon.
