In this presentation, a teacher and students will present the structure of the year 9 and 10 IT electives at Avila College, an all-girls Catholic school. Ideas on teaching algorithms, data representation and abstraction will be discussed. In particular, a project where students used Python to hide and reveal messages in image files will be presented in detail. Hopefully, there will be time for a sharing of experiences between the attendees.
The session will be co-presented with students from Avila College, Sarah Ang, Emily Goncalves &Erin Choo.
