Let's See How This Goes...

Well, the purpose of this blog really is for me, a place for me to "think out loud" on issues related to teaching computer science in K-12 education. I teach computer science at public high school in a suburb of Wichita, Kansas, and I am finding that teaching the concepts of coding presents a lot of pedagogical issues. Some are just like any other class, others are not. A lot of coding has such abstractness in concept that one cannot just rely on memorization for very long. Getting many students from rote mimicry of code examples to actually understanding things conceptually is a big leap!

So if you do happen to stumble across this little foray into the blogosphere, and have something to add, share, or comment on, please do!
