This book shows creative ways to engage students with ideas from computer science and computational thinking without using a computer. Many of the activities involve physically moving around, and get... More > students thinking about deep issues without having to learn to program. A video preview of the activities can be seen here: The book was written by three computer science lecturers and two school teachers, and is based on our experience in classrooms as well as feedback from hundreds of educators over two decades. We have found that many important concepts can be taught without using a computer-in fact, sometimes the computer is just a distraction from learning. Often computer science is taught using programming first, but not every student finds this motivating, and it can be a significant barrier to getting into the really interesting ideas in computer science. So unplug your computer, and get ready to learn what computer science is really about!< Less
