Professor Therese Keane has co-edited a new book with Associate Professor Andrew Fluck entitled 'Teaching Coding in K-12 Schools Research and Application.'
The book features authors from 17 different countries, spanning five continents, who set out to write about how programming and/or computational thinking has been taught to students in preschool, kindergarten, primary, secondary school and vocational education pathways.
They provide a progression path for students typically aged from 4 to 18 years, identifying key skills needed for learning programming. Based on global perspectives and research at each stage, these findings can be applied in the classroom.
“The book explores, from a global perspective, the importance of cultivating a rich environment for children’s creativity by developing their programming and computational thinking skills so they can be critical ‘producers’ rather than ‘consumers’,” says Professor Keane.
Many members of the WG 3.3 and WG 3.1 contributed to writing of the book and we are delighted with the final outcome. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making this book a success!
