This is a just a quick post as a placeholder for a longer discussion.
I am about to start teaching a high school computer programming course, really an introduction to Python, for the first time. So I have been thinking a great deal about the advantages of having adolescents developing programming skills and problem solving, etc..
Then, I came across this blog piece by Audrey Watters, which then referred me to one by Dave Lester about software bots.
I think their points are well taken and I am now trying to figure out how to incorporate these into my new course.
More as it happens.
