Artist chapter in forthcoming book



In a forthcoming (at the time of writing)  book Teaching Computing Unplugged in Primary Schools: Exploring primary computing through practical activities away from the computer, (eds, Helen Caldwell and Neil Smith), one of the chapters has been co-written by a member of the Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology, University of Northampton's Department of Computing (me, Scott Turner) and Katharine Childs from Code Club. Chapter 4 Artist's (appropriate for a member of the Faculty ) looks at using computing and computational thinking ideas to produce images on paper. 

Some examples of one of the activities in action  can be seen at unplugged activity - Thomas' Tangles.

The book comes out at the end of October 2016.
