I added a new widget to my blog last night. It is connected to CS Teaching tips which is a webpage and Twitter account – @CSTeachingTips. The widget provides a different teaching tip when ever this blog is opened in a web browser. It looks like it could be a useful addition. You can of course also go to the CS Teaching tips website and search for specific types of tips.
Some information from the website’s About Page where you can learn more about the people involved.
Problem: CS pedagogical content knowledge (CS PCK) – i.e., knowledge of how to teach computer science – is mostly undocumented.
Project Goal: Develop a set of CS teaching tips to help teachers anticipate students’ difficulties and build upon students’ strengths.
Status: Beginning the project in October of 2013, we are currently recruiting CS teachers who have insights into student learning.
