Issue 24 Impact of tech

How is computing taught around the globe? This issue of Hello World paints a picture with articles from over 20 countries.

We are surrounded by technology, and new applications impact our lives whether we engage with them or not. 

Hello World issue 24 features ideas from educators on how you can help young people think openly and critically about technology, from cybersecurity and green computing, to data literacy and of course AI. Learners need to understand the impact technology has on them as individuals and on society as a whole to become informed, empowered citizens, and computing educators in particular play a crucial role here. The issue also discusses how you can make time to teach about the impact of technology in an already packed curriculum.

  • OctoStudio: Introducing the mobile coding app from Lifelong Kindergarten, the MIT Media Lab group that created Scratch

  • Super-curriculars: Ideas for activities to boost university applications

And much, much more.
