A review of Day 1 of Advent of Code 2020.
You’d think that CS students know how to use their computers, that they are going to be the next generation of power users. But I am always amazed at how wrong this assumption sometimes is.
For my teaching, I have tried several tools to write presentation slides. Here is my reflection on what I have used so far during the Fall 2018 semester.
This is a brief report on the Hour of Code session we organized at ISEP. We took advantage of this session to run an experiment that will be described in this post.
I bought some BBB micro:bit cards to play around with. Here is some feedback as weel as a very short description of the ISEP-R0B0 project.
Today, I participated in my first run. And now my legs hurt.
After three weeks of teaching CS1 to first year undergrads, I’m sharing some thoughts on how this went so far.
Title: Orchestration Issues Raised by Transposing an Individual Paper-Pased Activity into a CSCL Tablet-Based Activity: an Example Abstract: This article presents an analysis of the implementation and orchestration challenges raised by turning a traditional paper-based activity (dictation) into a CSCL activity. It illustrates how implementing a CSCL version of a classical teaching setting can raise many new issues for teachers. Teachers must make design (scripting) decisions at different stages, both before and during the session.
Title: A model to support monitoring for classroom orchestration in a tablet-based CSCL activity Abstract: The work presented in this article addresses CSCL settings in which students work with tablets in classrooms. The objective is to study how to equip teachers with tablets to monitor students’ progress and intervene when required. We propose a model that provides teachers with both quantitative and qualitative run-time feedback based on the students’ progress. An implementation of this model was tested in the context of an activity called negotiated dictation.
