    How moral is your machine? Ethics in computing education

    How moral is your machine? Ethics in computing education

    This week, after watching too many science fiction films, Carrie Anne and James ask, "How moral is your machine?". We explored if computers are simply tools now that they are increasingly capable of making recommendations and taking decisions for us. What are the consequences if developers do not take the time to consider ethics and morality in their programming? And how, as educators, we can usefully bring this conversation into the classroom to engage and inspire our learners?

    How can we get everyone excited about code?

    How can we get everyone excited about code?

    To kick off our first ever Hello World podcast episode, we thought we would explore what excites us and frustrates us about programming. Learning to code can be a creative, imaginative, immersive and rewarding experience. We discuss the role that programming has as a practical application of computer science concepts, as well as how it brings the subject to life and enables learners to solve meaningful problems that are important to them.
