I had the distinct honor of interviewing four professors from West Chester University of Pensylvania: Dr. Chris Penny, Dr. Laquanna Cooke, Dr. Heather Schugar, and Dr. Jordan Schugar. They recently conducted a study with their undergraduate education majors that looked at coding in the Swift Playgrounds app. We had a thoughtful and extensive discussion on learning programming languages, coding, transferring skills, and implications for undergraduate teacher preparation. I think you will enjoy the episode. I really enjoyed the conversation!
