Our first free workshop of the year will be Paul’s exploration of ‘Searching to Speak’. This uses the example of a case of locked-in syndrome to explore the use of computational thinking in solving human problems (human-computer interaction) as well as considering when a technological approach might not actually be the most appropriate solution.
The workshop will take place on Monday 19 January from 5.30pm to 7pm at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL, Mile End Campus) and is free.
These workshops are aimed at Computing teachers in London and demonstrate a number of ways that teachers might introduce computational thinking and computer programming topics into the classroom, as such a workshop is not a ‘show’ (not suitable for pupils for example) and there will probably be some audience participation. There will also be a second workshop, with details to be confirmed, which will take place on Monday 26 January also at 5.30 to 7pm at the same venue.
