Apologies that the audio levels in this podcast aren’t quite right. We’ll get better with practice!
Recorded on Tuesday 1st May, 2012, the very first CAS Roundup Flashmeeting was well attended.
We discussed different ways to introduce programming to students, tackling maths problems in computer game development, ‘thinky programming’ & language based problem solving, learning platforms in schools, CPD for teachers and much, much more.
