To Type or Not To Type: Programming Interfaces for Learners

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are enough games which are designed to teach programming that we can begin to examine the range of affordances presented, and how they might affect learning outcomes for different groups of players.  This talk will attempt to do just that, as we look at the way players code in games like Lightbot, CodeMonkey, CodeCombat, Codemancer, Daisy the Dinosaur, Human Resource Machine, and more.  We can talk about what each of these says about the values of the organization that made it, and what each assumes about the ways players will interact with them in the wild.
