Coding across the curriculum
Miles Berry, principal lecturer, computing education, University of Roehampton
Now computing is firmly established as a subject in many schools, there is a great opportunity for pupils to apply their newly acquired programming skills in the context of some of the other subjects they study. Ranging from Monte Carlo methods for estimating π, to composing music with Sonic Pi, Miles will present a quick tour of a few ways pupils can practice programming in meaningful contexts and deepen their knowledge and understanding of other disciplines.
