Learning Programming at Scale: Code, Data, and Environment

The Department of Informatics is proud to present Philip Guo, Assistant Professor of Cognitive Science and Affiliate Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, UC San Diego. In this talk, Guo will present three systems that he developed to support learning of code, data, and environment, respectively: 1) Python Tutor is a run-time code visualization and peer tutoring system that has been used by over 3.5 million people in over 180 countries to form mental models and to help one another in real time, 2) DS.js uses the web as a nearly-infinite source of motivating real-world data to scaffold data science learning. 3) Porta helps experts create technical software tutorials that involve intricate environmental interactions.
