We're proud to get some great feedback from an experienced schoolteacher! The guest author of this blog post is Susan Nicholson.
Susan Nicholson is a Business and Computing Teacher at Ellenbrook Secondary College in Ellenbrook, West Australia. She teaches grades 7-12 on computer science and robotics.
In teaching computer programming fundamentals to Middle and Senior School students, I feel the examples and exercises given in “Learn to Program with Small Basic” provide a fun and informative way of delivering the concepts.
Examples of games, relating to science and maths enables students to apply real world scenarios to their programming and make it realistic. I found the book easy to read and follow; the examples are clear and well explained.
The use of colour coding and visuals enables students to easily follow on and gives them the confidence to try themselves.
