inPractice are passionate advocates for improving children’s access to digital literacy resources.
That’s why, in 2013, inPractice enrolled onto the STEM Ambassador programme to teach concepts of computing to children.
We’ve taken part in activities at local Primary school as well as larger events like the GameCity Festival.
Using Paper To Teach Computing
It sounds contradictory but we’re big fans of using low fidelity resources during our development prototyping. Which is just a posh way of saying we like using pencil and paper as mistakes get more costly the more code you write! So what better way to help children learn about what’s under the hood of a computer than a paper craft computer?
It’s a set of resources that’s easy to distribute to an entire class as you just need paper, scissors and some glue.
