Linda Liukas: The Grammar of Computers: Science, Society, Technology and Arts
Does computer science belong in engineering, science, or arts? Are computers a tool or a toy? Computing education, as much as it is about learning to code, is also about creating a language for the children to talk about the world.
Computers keep changing the world. What we can learn from stars, glaciers and mushrooms when it comes to computing education? And why we need a Whole Earth Catalogue or a Montessori method for early childhood computing education? And why start with childhood and its intense world-building, secrets and silences?
This talk is made of computer science, stories, pedagogy, wonder, interdependency between theory and practice and one children’s book author trying to braid them all together.

(Session is in the English language / In Englischer Sprache)
