    Accessible and inclusive computing education: Where to start?

    Accessible and inclusive computing education: Where to start?

    This week, we begin to explore the topic of inclusion, ensuring that **all** learners are able to access and participate in meaningful learning opportunities in computing. How do we as educators ensure that learners are able to thrive and learn within computing regardless of any special educational needs they have?

    How do we engage learners in data science?

    How do we engage learners in data science?

    Understanding data has always been an important skill, but particularly so now as data is all around us and interacts with so many parts of our lives. Analysing and interpreting data can be challenging for learners, particularly if they don't see the value in doing so. Providing them with engaging and relevant opportunities to work with data is crucial.

    What does equity have to do with computing?

    What does equity have to do with computing?

    Recent events, particularly COVID-19, have emphasised the lack of equity in computing, especially when it comes to equipment and connectivity. It’s also no secret that the field of computer science is lacking in diversity. So today, we’re asking the question: "What does equity, access, diversity, and inclusion have to do with computing?". James and Carrie Anne are joined by two guests to explore how important it is for educators to reflect on their practice and ensure their teaching is accessible, inclusive, and engaging to all learners.

    Machine Learning for Kids: why introduce young learners to AI?

    Machine Learning for Kids: why introduce young learners to AI?

    Although artificial intelligence (AI) is a developing field, its applications are all around us and increasingly part of our everyday lives. This week, James and Carrie Anne explore why educators should introduce even their young learners to the principles of AI, and they explore some activities and experiences to develop learners' understanding. Not only are many learners likely to use or even develop AI as part of their future careers, but they should all understand the principles, benefits, and risks associated with the technology.

    How can computing help us re-connect with nature?

    How can computing help us re-connect with nature?

    This week James and Carrie Anne go outdoors to explore some of the ways in which educators can connect their learners with nature using technology. Whether for investigating local habitats and wildlife or exploring remote locations, technology is a vital tool for learning about the natural world and our place in it. Nature is yet another context through which learners can experience computing concepts and learn about the relevance of programming, physical computing, and machine learning.

    What is Digital Making?

    What is Digital Making?

    To kick off the second season of the Hello World podcast, we decided to explore "digital making"; it's part of the mission here at the Raspberry Pi Foundation, but what does it mean? Our digital making duo, Carrie Anne and James, challenge themselves to explain this broad practice, share their experiences, and explore what makes digital making appealing to learners.
