Project Based Learning in Computer Science and Programming

I've been using Greenfoot to engage my students for several years now. It has pushed my instruction almost completely towards project based learning and I have seen the engagement levels (and enrollment) improve across all ability levels of students. In this session I'll introduce participants to the platform and some of the work my students have been able to produce. We'll also look at how Greenfoot supports visualization, individualized instruction, low floor/high ceiling projects and can be used to implement the new CS curriculum.

Cam Joyce

I am the Mathematics department head at Johnston Heights Secondary in Surrey and have been teaching AP Computing Science, ICTP11, and ICTP12 for over 10 years. I'm a member of the provincial curriculum writing team for Computer Programming (ADST) and Computer Science (Mathematics). I'm a hopeless nerd and I like to code.
