New prize draw for Digital Education subscribers
The kind folks at Pavilion Books have made a copy of Think Like a Coder available as a prize for my newsletter, Digital Education. I’ll be running a draw soon, and one lucky subscriber who enters the draw will have the book sent to them. Unfortunately, only residents of the UK and Ireland are eligible on this occasion, but you should subscribe anyway because there is always good stuff in it, and I often run prize draws!
Before I fractured my elbow (see illustration), it had never occurred to me that being able to open a jar of coffee would be a major achievement. It has slowed me down somewhat, hence the delay in publishing a new issue of Digital Education. But it’s virtually written (by which I mean written in my head), so hopefully it won’t be too long now.
Just in case the next issue of Digital Education (see above) takes longer than expected because of my damaged elbow (ditto), allow me to draw your attention to a conference organised by Richard Smith. It’s about teaching computing, and looks exciting. It’s in a beautiful part of England, Shropshire, on 28th June.
I have to tell you that Richard kindly offered me a free place on the conference, but I’d have been happy to advertise it anyway. The reason is that Richard does good stuff, and is very knowledgeable, and acted as a sounding board for me and my ideas for a presentation when the new Computing Programme of Study was about to crash into England’s National Curriculum. The details are on the Amazing ICT website.
Oh, and podcast posts
I almost forgot. Despite being in a lot of pain and somewhat incapacitated because of a fractured elbow (did I mention that), I’ve posted several articles about podcasts and one about video channels. Start here:
