Research Projects – Jane Waite

At Queen Mary University London in the Computer Science Education team, we are working on a range of research projects.

It is always difficult to know where to put the data that we accumulate on our research journeys. We had an idea to put our data on Teaching London Computing and make it available to teachers and researchers.

Jane Waite is trying out this idea for her PhD data, where she is studying the use of design in primary school programming projects.

Data source 1, is an excel spreadsheet of the responses of 207 teachers to a survey on their teaching of programming and teaching of writing for the response to the question ‘`What planning do you use for teaching programming?
