Teaching Kids Programming with Agile Techniques

A session at Agile 2011

Thursday 11th August, 2011

1:30pm to 3:00pm (MST)

In this workshop, attendees will experience our Intentional Method of introducing children (ages 10+) to programming using recipes (lessons at www.TeachingKidsProgramming.org ). We use Agile techniques such as pair programming, randoris, short iterations, re-factoring & test-driven development in teaching. Pair instructors model Agile practices while teaching. Learn how to teach technical processes using Agile techniques. Although we’ve mostly used our method with children, we have also successfully taught adults using similar methodologies
