As a curriculum developer, we speak with thousands of middle school teachers every year.
Middle school computer teachers have their hands full teaching Microsoft Word, Google Sheets, and more to hundreds of students every marking period.
Many computer teachers struggle to keep students engaged, so finding ways to increase interest in lessons is often at the top of our minds. One of the most exciting tools that I have found sparks student creativity and interest is Alice Programming. It’s perfect for middle school programming lessons, and can even be used by other teachers in cross-curricular projects.
