The Raspberry Pi Foundation has released a new issue of Hello World which provides teachers and educators with an in-depth exploration of ethical computing, coding and more. The highlights of issue six include : Doing the right thing: can computing help create ‘good citizens’? Ethics in the curriculum: how to introduce them to students, Microblocks: live programming for microcontrollers and he 100-word challenge: a free resource to unlock creative writing.
“Whatever area of computing you hail from, how to take an ethical approach to the projects we build with code is an important question. As educators, we also need to think about the attitudes we are passing on to our students as we guide them along their computing journey.
Ensuring that future generations use technology for good and consider the ethical implications of their creations is vital, particularly as self-learning AI systems are becoming prevalent. Let’s be honest: none of us want to live in a future resembling The Terminator’s nightmarish vision, however unlikely that is to come true.
With that in mind, we’ve brought together a wide range of experts to share their ideas on the moral questions that teaching computing raises, and on the social implications of computing in the wider context of society.”
