Collective residencies / Educational programming and robotics 2024 / Olot


From Tuesday, 7 May 2024 to Tuesday, 14 May 2024

Teaching Professor Emeritus
Berkeley (California, USA)


Teaching Professor Emeritus in Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He wrote the three-volume for Computer Science Logo Style teenagers, and co-wrote (with Matthew Wright) Simply Scheme, a textbook for undergraduates. He was lead developer of Berkeley Logo, an implementation that's free in both senses and has become something of a de facto standard. He is co-developer (with Jens Mönig) of the Snap! visual programming language, and co-developer (with Daniel Garcia) of The Beauty and Joy of Computing, a CS breadth course for non-computer scientists that uses Snap!. Brian's Ph.D. is in Science and Mathematics Education, from UC Berkeley, but he really spent his time as a student there taking philosophy courses. His proudest achievement, though, is the computer center he built at the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in 1980, where courses weren't graded and kids had keys to the room. He'll talk about it for hours if you let him.


We will meet in Faberllull Olot a passionate group of teachers, designers and creators of educational tools from around the world to promote these creative learnings in educational programming and robotics. Many of us already share projects during the year, from distant locations, enjoying the technologies that allow us to work remotely and asynchronously, but the personal and intensive meeting that Faberllull Olot offers us is an invaluable gift.
