Building a smarter computing culture in Fargo, ND
As our project has been evolving, we have been trying to figure out how to teach proceduracy–the logic of programming, including writing as a set of procedures– if not programming itself. The above HASTAC blog post gives 3 non-computer examples:
1. Instructions for making PBJs.
2. Assembling toddler puzzles, but adding in nonsense steps.
3. Creating an algorithm for moving through time and space.
These all seem great starters, but I also think there is going to need to be some more complex non-computer examples for me and our students to really understand how a Google algorithm works.
