A preview into the SCSI Assessments Report.
The Open SCSI GitHub organization starting to gain a small following.
EcoSystem32's inspiration: a Java game nicknamed "The Hunger Games."
The Student Computer Science Initiative started as a project among high school classmates to help their school make CS classes more engaging. Thanks to OpenSource@HackIllinois, we took the opportunity to move our work to a forum where other students, teachers, researchers, and industry professionals could contribute. We have both tools and insights that can bolster CS teaching and learning.
The Game: EcoSystem32
The Open SCSI's code isn't its only asset. We welcome others to read our report on "Next Generation Computer Science Assessments." We believe the report has useful ideas for tackling many issues both students and teachers have brought up concerning tests and projects. The report was written by students after many months of gathering student-to-student feedback through conversations, workshops, and even student-led classes. The ideas represent the kind of experience students want when studying technology. The SCSI hopes that these students' voices are heard by more schools. To ensure that they are understood and palatable, we welcome pull requests not just on our code, but on our insights as well.
