Computational Thinking in Libraries and Media Centres

Incorporating Inexpensive Technology into School Curriculum

Lead: Eric Meyers

Raspberry Pi Tech

This project explores how librarians and teacher-librarians are incorporating inexpensive technologies (coding apps, Raspberry Pis, programmable robots) to meet the new emphasis on computer science education in the early grades, with the goal of identifying and propagating curricular innovation. Funded by OCLC, Inc. and UBC. Eric Meyers is currently editing a special issue of the journal Information and Learning Science on the topic.
