Out now: Hello World’s special edition on Computing content

1 Comment and 2 Shares

Hello World, our free magazine for computing and digital making educators, has just published its second special edition: The Big Book of Computing Content.

Cover of The Big Book of Computing Content.

A special edition on the content we teach in the Computing classroom

While Hello World‘s first special edition, The Big Book of Computing Pedagogy, focused on how we can teach Computing, this new book is about what we mean by Computing. It aims to demonstrate the breadth of knowledge and skills contained within this constantly evolving subject.

We have structured the new special edition around our taxonomy for formal Computing education, to which we map all our formal education resources. Originally we developed the taxonomy when we started work in the consortium setting up and delivering England’s National Centre for Computing Education, and specifically when we designed the 500 hours of classroom materials in the Teach Computing Curriculum.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation's computing content taxonomy, made of 11 strands: effective use of tools, safety and security, design and development, impact of technology, computing systems, networks, creating media, algorithms and data structures, programming, data and information, artificial intelligence.
The 11 strands of Computing content in our taxonomy.

Our Computing taxonomy comprises eleven strands and aims to categorise Computing conceptual knowledge and skills to both demonstrate the breadth of Computing as a discipline, and to provide a common language to describe the different areas of study and competencies.

The Big Book of Computing Content complements our first Hello World special edition and follows the same principle of introducing readers to up-to-date research, followed by our favourite stories from past Hello World issues by educators who put that content into practice. For each of the eleven strands in our taxonomy, we also present a table of learning outcomes, which provides examples of knowledge and skills that learners from ages 5 to 19 could develop at each stage of their formal computing education. 

Your thoughts on The Big Book of Computing Content

Hello World’s first special edition was very popular around the world, with educators setting up Big Book of Computing Pedagogy reading groups, leaders using the book to support pre-service teachers, and even of an upcoming translation into Thai.

We’ve already started to hear similar stories about The Big Book of Computing Content from Hello World readers, including CSEdResearch dedicating their Computer Science Education Discussion Group to all things Big Book of Computing Content in its first week of publication.

We’d love to hear from more educators about how you are using this new special edition, and how it complements your reading of the first Big Book.

You can also subscribe now to get each new Hello World — whether regular issue or special edition — straight to your digital inbox, for free! And if you’re based in the UK and do paid or voluntary work in education, you can subscribe for free print issues.

Precision vs Accuracy

'Barack Obama is much less likely than the average cat to jump in and out of cardboard boxes for fun' is low precision, but I'm not sure about the accuracy.

An online event called Tabletop Gathering 2022 features discounts on digital versions of board games like Wingspan, Mystic Vale and Smash Up.

Hosted via the online PC store and platform Steam, Tabletop Gathering 2022 is an event organised by Monster Couch Studio – the developer and co-publisher behind the digital board game version of Wingspan. The event involves more than 100 developers behind digital versions of tabletop games or video games that are otherwise heavily inspired by tabletop titles.

Featured within the event are various demos of tabletop-esque video games, which players can currently download and play for free via Steam. The event’s available demos include a video game inspired by the fantasy board game Tainted Grail: Fall of Avalon, called Tainted Grail: Conquest, a video game version of the legacy board game The King’s Dilemma – which is set to be fully released in Q1 2023 – and a digital version of Senet, a board game that originates from Ancient Egypt.
