Eckart Modrow

from University of Göttingen

Eckart Modrow is an honorary Professor for the Didactics of Computer Science at the University of Göttingen. He is particularly interested in the development of concepts and materials that promote independent and creative learning. He has been dealing with graphic programming languages ​​for a long time.

Eckart Modrow studied physics, then became a high school teacher of physics, mathematics and computer science. He was particularly involved in training for CS teachers and is the author of numerous books.

SciSnap! is a tool for working on a level between pure programming language and finished applications. It contains libraries for mathematical and data related problems as well as SQL queries. In addition, sprites and the stage can be configured as sketchpads for the creation of diagrams, image processing, graphs and neural networks. In the workshop the use of SciSnap! will be demonstrated with some examples. Afterwards, participants can work on their own tasks or on the provided ones alone or in groups. Sample solutions are available for the prepared tasks, which can be used if required. Parallel to the work, questions are an-swered in the meeting.

The Secrets & Surprises in Coding Spirals:
TurtleStitch Tur-torial

Cynthia Solomon, Sarah Magner,

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!

TurtleStitch is an activity and a coding environment. TurtleStitching is a mi...


Grand Gestures
Storytelling with AI

Jens Mönig, Jadga Hügle

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!

We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...


Codification (Transformation) of GUI Elements and database structures from SNAP to Python
From blocks language to typing language by SNAP Code conversion

Matthias Kim

Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...
