Useful online editors/compilers and websites that I found best to teach HTML and Python.
Second year students came up with very interesting topics and challenges in Computer science. They convincingly presented and reflected on feedback. The following are some of the topics:
Robotics, super computers, hacking, assisted education, animation, social media, computer architecture, computers during 1950s, woman and computers, anonymous.
Why do girls not study computer science.
Computer science as a new Leaving Cert. subject.
Computer Science – the nerd stereotype!
Great videos to show students so they can see famous entrepreneurs. Ask students to take down the rules and spot how they are similar to the theory of entrepreneur characteristics (motivation, determination, realistic risk-taker, innovative, manage time and stress, leader, focus on vision/ expansion/planning… ).
