How do we teach our youngest learners digital and computing skills? Hello World‘s issue 21 will focus on this question and all things primary school computing education. We’re excited to share this new issue with you on Tuesday 30 May. Today we’re giving you a taste by sharing an article from it, written by our… The post Preparing young children for a digital world | Hello World #21 appeared first on Raspberry Pi Foundation.
- Introducing data science concepts and skills to primary school learnersvon Katharine Childs am Mai 18, 2023 um 11:31 am
Every day, most of us both consume and create data. For example, we interpret data from weather forecasts to predict our chances of a good weather for a special occasion, and we create data as our carbon footprint leaves a trail of energy consumption information behind us. Data is important in our lives, and countries… The post Introducing data science concepts and skills to primary school learners appeared first on Raspberry Pi Foundation.
- Help us understand UK students’ attitudes to codingvon Hammad Kazi am Mai 12, 2023 um 1:06 pm
Non-formal learning initiatives are a popular way to engage children in computing from a young age and introduce them to the fun, creative world of coding and digital making. As part of our commitment to an evidence-based approach, we are partnering with Durham University on an exciting evaluation project to study the impact non-formal activities… The post Help us understand UK students’ attitudes to coding appeared first on Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Broadening participation and finding new entry points for young people to engage with computing is part of how we pursue our mission here at the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It was also the focus of our March online seminar, led by our own Dr Bobby Whyte. In this third seminar of our series on computing education… The post Integrating primary computing and literacy through multimodal storytelling appeared first on Raspberry Pi Foundation.
- Kids’ coding languagesvon Marc Scott am April 28, 2023 um 9:47 am
Programming is becoming an increasingly useful skill in today’s society. As we continue to rely more and more on software and digital technology, knowing how to code is also more and more valuable. That’s why many parents are looking for ways to introduce their children to programming. You might find it difficult to know where… The post Kids’ coding languages appeared first on Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Experience AI is a new educational programme that offers cutting-edge secondary school resources on AI and machine learning for teachers… The post Experience AI: The excitement of AI in your classroom appeared first on Raspberry Pi Foundation.
- How anthropomorphism hinders AI educationvon Ben Garside am April 13, 2023 um 2:59 pm
In the 1950s, Alan Turing explored the central question of artificial intelligence (AI). He thought that the original question, “Can machines think?”, would not provide useful answers because the terms “machine” and “think” are hard to define. Instead, he proposed changing the question to something more provable: “Can a computer imitate intelligent behaviour well enough… The post How anthropomorphism hinders AI education appeared first on Raspberry Pi Foundation.
