What are the best computer vision courses for teaching kids?I've been asked this many times.There are so many options, and so many people who've done so much to make this a reality.But the best ones always have something to offer.There is a certain standard to which they're all measured.This is because it's all about teaching.It's about teaching what's useful, what's exciting and exciting about co...
A group of computer science students have created a series of computer literacy courses in Glasgow that focus on using computers to learn new skills.
The courses are part of a larger series of courses aimed at computer science graduate students, which are also aimed at helping to support young people through the computer literacy phase of their studies.
Students from Glasgow’s Computer Science and Engineering Society have started the first programme, called CSPE, which is a collaboration between the society and the Scottish Computer and Information Centre (SCIC).
It is an attempt to create an environment for computer science grads to gain practical skills, and to work alongside others who are in similar situations, said SCIC’s director of learning, Alan Taylor.
“We’re hoping that this is a way of teaching them to think differently, to get more out of their work, and we hope that it’s a place for them to develop a lot of skills,” he said.
“This is a chance for them, not only to be taught the basics of computing but also to learn to be able to use computers in a more efficient way.”
If you think about a lot a different way of doing things, we think it’s the way of the future.
“The new programme was started in partnership with SCIC and the Computer Literacy Society (CLSS), an organisation which aims to develop computer literacy and digital skills in young people.”
The first course will teach students to understand basic concepts like how to program computers, what a program is, how to create one and how to use it. “
So we thought we could start by doing a course in computer literacy.”
The first course will teach students to understand basic concepts like how to program computers, what a program is, how to create one and how to use it.
It will be based around the concepts of coding, how programs work and how programs can communicate with each other.
Other courses will focus on computer graphics and graphics development, how computers work, programming languages and digital design.
“I think it will be a really good learning experience for the students,” Mr Taylorsaid.
“As far as I’m concerned, I think it’ll give them the knowledge and the skills they need to actually use the computer and work with it.”
The students who enrol in the courses will also receive a certificate in Computer Science, as well as a project on computer vision, which will help them to understand how computers can work in a variety of settings.
The new courses will be funded by the Computer Science Fund, which was set up to help computer science and computer literacy graduate students.
“These are the first things we’ve got, so we hope to do some other courses in the future,” Mr Turner said.
