In this talk, director of the non-profit 'Teaching Kids Programming', Lynn Langit will share her experience teaching kids coding around the world over the past 8 years. Starting when she worked at Microsoft, with the DigiGirlz program, Lynn has been creating courseware, teaching teachers and teaching kids core computational concepts.
Lynn will discuss and demonstrate key concepts using example from TKP courseware (core is in Java). Teaching methods are based on Agile / XP technical practices and include pair and mob programming, TDD, katas, koans and more.
Attend this session to learn what works with teachers and kids and to learn how you can make a difference teaching the next generation of programmers.
