Coffee Break

According to wikipedia, the 'coffee break' allegedly originated in the late 19th century in Wisconsin, USA with the wives of Norwegian immigrants - but in conference terms it has come to mean the time when you meet old friends and catch up on news and developments. During Media and Learning we plan to improve on this idea by making sure you also meet new people and will be providing you with a participants list and a code for contacting anyone attending the conference using your mobile phone. This way you can use the coffee break to really expand your network .... and don't worry - we will also be providing coffee, tea and fresh drinks!

Programming as Creativity

Plenary

The teaching of programming to young students can be described as going beyond simply providing them with a new skill. This is because students who are exposed to programming at an early age may well be in a better position to learn to think computationally, to gain insight into the underlying principles of computational systems and therefore better able to express themselves creatively in ways that were not possible before. However the introduction of programming in schools also raises questions as to how best this can be achieved given the perceived lack of relevant resources and appropriate training and support for teachers. This session will reflect a variety of viewpoints and seeks to elaborate on why we should teach programming to young children in the first place, how best this can be done and ways in which teachers can prepare for this revolution in terms of basic education. Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion including Wietse van Bruggen, Kennisnet, The Netherlands.
