Greenfoot is an introductory Java programming environment that gives teachers a high level of control over the nature and context of teaching examples. This workshop is aimed at teachers of introductory programming courses (high school/university) who have some experience with Greenfoot and want to learn how to use it more effectively in their teaching. Participants will develop their own teaching project for use in their classroom, under consideration of pedagogical and technical aspects. Other topics discussed include educational strategies for programming, advanced Greenfoot programming techniques, transition from and to other system (Scratch, Alice, BlueJ) and integration of media. Laptop recommended for hands-on exercises. Participants without laptops will be paired with laptop owners.
