Media Computation in Python

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come to a hands-on introduction to Media Computation in Python, which is a proven and engaging approach to teaching computing concepts. In Media Computation students write programs to manipulate media: pictures, sounds, and text. In Media Computation you can mirror a picture to create art or reverse a sound to look for hidden messages. Media Computation has been used successfully for over 10 years to teach introductory programming at the college and high school level. Media Computation can be used to teach basic computing concepts such as variables, loops, conditionals, string manipulation, and arrays.
