Interesting Links 31 March 2014

I’ve been writing more code then usual lately. Mostly just for the fun of it. That means less time on the Internet collecting good links. But it’s been great getting back in touch with my coding side. I expect some (more) blogs posts to develop from the process. But I did find some good stuff to share. Even if one of the links is to a post I wrote for another blog.

Junior Computer Science A UK site with resources for teaching computer science to the younger grades.

10 ways to prepare for the new Computing curriculum is a lit of resources for teachers preparing to teach the new ICT curriculum in England. Perhaps something useful for you as well?

Programming languages are the most powerful, and least usable and learnable user interfaces on the blog@CACM  by Mark Guzdial @guzdial

250 * 4 = ? Doug Bergman @dougbergmanUSA on the Microsoft in Education Global Forum. A good read about an amazing professional development event.

Computer Science for Non-Majors by Ran Libeskind-Hadas,Professor and Department Chair of Computer Science at Harvey Mudd College, writes about issues around computer science courses to support non-majors. Some good stuff here.

More on Social Networking for CS Educators My regular guest post at CSTA blog. I really believe in the value of teachers sharing what they know via social media. Writing comments in blog posts is a great thing to do as well.
