Computer science education research relating to school has been gathering momentum over the last few years, although the field is still in its infancy in comparison to science and mathematics education. Fields of interest include, but are not restricted to blocks/text-based programming environments, strategies for teaching programming, computational thinking, diversity, assessment, collaborative work, tools and techniques and teacher education. There is considerable commonality between research in school and higher education and much that researchers in these fields can learn from each other. In this talk Sue will look at recent developments in computer science education research, with particular references to new work around the teaching of programming, which is relevant to both school and higher education educators alike.
