Sorry this is late today. Not a good weekend or morning either. Should be close to 100% for the workshops I am presenting in Vermont on Wednesday and Thursday though. More of what I did last week (Teaching Teachers and Students Together) This week Ed Donahue is joining me for an Expression Web workshops. Should be fun for sure. Now off with some links that I hope you will find useful and/or interesting.
First off the bat Lee Stott @lee_stott writes about the amazing Windows Phone Curricula Resources DVD and Online resources a huge number of resources for anyone who wants to learn or teach Windows Phone development.
The amazing Angela Maiers @AngelaMaiers wrote about her experiences at the Partners in Learning – Global Forum this past fall.
New York City gets a Software Engineering High School this coming Septembers. Joel Spolsky writes about it in that link. Joel is on the advisory board. So is my good friend Leigh Ann Jervis DeLyser. The school is largely the dream of Mike Zamansky @zamansky from New York’s Stuyvesant High School. Most people call it an “elite” school but since I went to rival Brooklyn Tech I can’t bring myself to do that. ) BTW I just added Mike’s blog at cestlaz.blogspot.com to my Computer Science Education Blog Roll. Not sure why it took me so long to find Mike’s blog. Let me know if there are others I should be following.
Audrey Watters @audreywatters who is rapidly becoming my first source for technology education news wrote Should ALL college majors (not just CS majors) learn to code? I think so but apparently not everyone agrees. Imagine that!
Interesting look at an Imagine Cup team: UW students utilize the Kinect to teach math on GeekWire I love the whole idea of learning that involves people getting up and moving around. I think that makes people’s brains work better. Bodies too!
