Teacher Training: Introduction to Textual Programming by Arduino
The first is the worst…
…as is also getting in textual programming. Especially at the very beginning, students have problems to understand the concepts of textual programming. If they do not get any sense of achievement, it will be hard to maintain their motivation.
Now the Arduino comes into play! Arduino is an affordable microcontroller platform developed for teaching purposes. As the basic commands are easy to learn, it is not much effort to make LEDs shine and let motors move. Immediate sense of achievement guaranteed! Real world feedback makes the results immediately perceptible. Conventional programming cannot provide such a strong effect.
The workshop "Computer Science Enlightened" enables students to learn basic textual programming skills easily in tandem with experiments concerning light.
