Leave a comment

Hi everyone,

This is the last post for my WordPress blog. It has been a reliable environment however it is time to consolidate my many web sites.

I am moving to a Google platform to allow me to use some of the analytics features and gives me a little more control over the plugins (I do not want to host my own blog nor pay wordPress.com for the privilege)

From here on I will be posting to http://virtualmv.blogspot.co.nz/

Cheers Michael

Is Kiwi Culture holding back Tech? | IITP Techblog #vmvsocial #vmvwiki

"The "Number 8 wire" mentality is both a blessing and a curse. On the upside it allows us to innovate, often when we are under resourced and under pressure, but on the downside it can cause us to choose the cheapest of options, or to create bespoke, Frankenstein technology solutions that crumble over time"

Why CS Departments Should Embrace Computing Education Research #vmvwiki #vmvresearch

Leave a comment

"Computing Education Research (CER) is a growing area with substantial new funding opportunities (e.g., NSF CAREER awards, NSF Graduate Research Fellowships, and growing support from industry) and highly-regarded venues for publication. CER is focused on how people learn about computing and improving that process, from the kindergartener programming a robot toy, to an undergraduate in CS 1, to a statistician using the latest scriptable analysis tool.
