  1. 2: Towards A New Science of Progress with Jason Crawford

    Jason runs the blog RootsofProgress.org and is one of the leading luminaries in the emerging discipline of progress studies. Jason’s work at Roots of Progress centers around investigating the crucial technological innovations that have allowed us to come out of the depravity that characterized most of human existence up until very recently. We cover Jason’s views on why the study of human progress is a moral imperative, the prospects of long-term technological and economic stagnation, relatedly, whether all the long-hanging fruit in that regard has been picked, the stalling of important industries from pesticides, to nuclear power, and the relationship between the notion of progress, free will, and agency.

    KEYNOTE THE REVOLUTION IN COMPUTING EDUCATION AT SCHOOL: OPPORTUNITY AND CHALLENGE by Simon Peyton Jones

    ABSTRACT The new English National Curriculum in computing says that every child should learn computer science, as a foundational subject discipline like maths or natural science, from primary school onwards. This is much more than “teaching kids to code”. It represents a huge and welcome shift of perspective, away from technology and towards principles and ideas.

    But it’s also a massive challenge. What does a good computer science education look like in primary school classroom? How can teachers with little subject knowledge of computer science teach it? Aren’t computer scientists all socially-challenged male geeks anyway?

    In this talk, Simon explains what’s going on, especially the recent launch of the National Centre of Computing Education. This revolution is taking place in our core expertise, in within yards of our front doors. And we are being invited to contribute to it, and shape how it “lands”. What an opportunity! Let’s grab it; Simon will make concrete suggestions about how.
