Recently we've been thinking about the connection between computing education and the computing workplace and asking "What can computing educators learn from industry?" How much does what we teach our learners reflect how they might apply computing in the workplace. Are there practices or techniques that we can borrow from industry professionals that might benefit our learners?
Joining us today are two educators to help offer their perspectives and expertise:
Matthew Wimpenny-Smith is a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator and former Assistant Head, now a Senior Lecturer of ITE, Partnerships and Primary Computing.
Julia Roebuck has been a programmer for 20 years, working in multiple languages and technologies. Since 2015 she has been teaching computing.
