I love the suggestions that come fromCS Teaching Tips @CSTeachingTips For example “Give students a caesar cipher to teach how characters can be treated as numbers and to reinforce string manipulation. http://ow.ly/IiLhJ “ I love Caesar cipher projects! Also this one “Give students a large data file to sort when teaching sorting algorithms. http://ow.ly/IiJZ7 “ Sorting small data sets is boring, feels to easy and doesn’t give one a real chance to see performance differences.
Computer Science Teacher: 2015 CSTA annual conference – Registration is Open. Will I see you there?
Fun images to help visualize how computers have changed. Your students may find these interesting.
New collaboration features in TouchDevelop This opens some interesting possibilities. I’m wondering about how several students modifying the same program at the same time will work out in class.
