Abstract

Greenfoot (http://greenfoot.org) is an educational programming environment designed to learn and teach object-oriented programming concepts (using the Java language) with games and simulations. While exposing standard Java and fundamental principles, it is highly motivating for learners. Students can develop interactive graphical games from the first day, experiment with programming constructs and share their programs online (see http://greenfootgallery.org). A large instructor community and numerous resources are available to support teachers (http://greenroom.greenfoot.org/). This workshop will enable participants to get hands-on experience with Greenfoot programming. We will cover beginners topics aimed at people who have not previously seen Greenfoot, some more advanced issues as well as pedagogical considerations and educational tips and techniques. Participants should be able to use the material covered directly in their own teaching.
