My name is Temidayo, an instructor for Kids coding for summer schoolHeard of GitHub Swag Bag for my Classroom, taking several classes for Kids coding and i have been looking forward to have GitHub to support our student groups (UnilagGDG-University of Lagos Google Developer Group) where we take programming and software development training per semester, also Kids Coding for Summers School (Targeted at Kids) and a forthcoming classroom session that will last 10weeks and it is a recurring session every 10weeks. Hence, the need to get motivation and utilisation of this powerful and useful resources to meet a global standard and best practice.
The Process involved and according to the @sanicki, post I will like to know and as well have the GitHub Education Case studies to get started.

(Kraig Hufstedler) #743

Hello,

I’m Kraig Hufstedler, I teach Web Development (HTML/CSS/JS) at Washington University in St. Louis. This is my second semester teaching the class, and Github Classroom has been invaluable for helping keep code assignments organized. It has been so easy to set up a source repo, and having students accept the assignment through Classroom keeps everything well structured with the correct settings.

I’m always looking to improve my course and the tools used so i’m excited to participate in this community to get ideas and share what works for me!

(Brandn03) #747

Hi, I am the coach of a rookie FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team in Virginia. While we are new to FRC we have 6 years of experience with FTC. We are located in a very rural part of the state without many resources. So to make an FRC team feasible we are drawing students from 6 different high schools, in 4 counties and 2 states (VA and WV). We just found out today that we were a reciepent of a grant from NASA to help get our season started!

(Giorgos Sfikas) #753

Hi everyone!

I am a professor of computer science at the department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Ioannina. Ioannina is a city situated at the north-western part of Greece.

Since last year I am teaching Digital Image Processing. I am using github to share useful code with my students. Last year we were using Matlab, this year it was Python and Jupyter notebook/Python. Also, github classroom proved to be a very useful platform for submitting exercises. A few students that were unfamiliar with git complained when faced with this way of submitting their exercises, however they more or less got the hang of it soon enough. Furthermore, I strongly believe that learning and getting accustomed to git is a skill that is definetely going to be useful for my students in the long run.

Kind regards,
Giorgos Sfikas
