(Brian Lee) #798

Hello everyone!

I’m Brian and I run a club at Melbourne High School called MHS Developers Club. In our club, more experienced students teach beginner students the basics of an aspect of software development (e.g. web development). We also work on different projects with students receiving mentorship from club leaders!

In the last year or so that we’ve been running the club, it seems that having mentors who are easily accessible help students learn the basics much quicker and also as a positive side effect, helps the more experienced students develop leadership skills!

I look forward to learning more about teaching students from this wonderful community!

Regards,
Brian

(Vinod Kumar Jain) #804

I am Vinod Kumar Jain. I teach mathematics to grade 6-10. I’m 49 and I live in Delhi, India. My son told me about how he uses GitHub for his school projects, which made me think that how can I use it for my students at a government school in India. I plan to use it for teaching myself and my students as well as to how to use version control in schools for basic to advance projects.

Glad to be here!

Hi everyone,

I teach a web development class at Lehman College in the Bronx as a part of the NYC Tech-in-Residence program.

I’m looking forward to leveraging GitHub to run the course, so that the classroom experience is as close to the real world as possible for my students.

Any resources appreciated for a first time lecturer!

Best,
Ross

(Asem) #811

Hi All,

My name is Asem Alaa and I am a MSc., Research and Teaching Assistant in the Biomedical Engineering Department at Cairo University. I am doing my research in High Performance Computing and Bioinformatics. Teaching wise, in this semester, I will be teaching Data Structures using C++. It will be my first experience and hopefully will introduce new educational experience to students. The challenge is how to teaching them:

  1. using git and github,
  2. Data Structures,
  3. C++ (most challenging for beginners),
  4. Finally, preparing the ecosystem of developing C++ applications.
    So, if anyone has an experience in providing all these topics in a single course, I would be very grateful sharing his experience.
