Since I’m starting this blog at the same time as working on my honours research, I thought I’d post a little summary. Right now I’m working on objects-first programming education, particularly with Karel the Robot and other virtual worlds. Objects-first programming is all about teaching object-oriented programming from the start, rather than the “traditional” model of introducing objects on top of procedural programming.

Over the next few months, I’ll be developing a prototype tool for teaching programming with virtual robots, hopefully bridging the gap between “pure” robot worlds and standard applications programming.
