Code College releases its first Amazon Echo Application.
Code College has released a new Application or Skill for the Amazon Echo, called Computer Science Definitions.
Computer Science Definitions
This application (called a Skill by Amazon) has been designed for school children to get a daily(or hourly) reminder of Computer Science terms they need to know for their exams.
By using Computer Science Definitions on a regular basis, students will be able to learn new definitions, or be reminded of those they already know. A good grasp of Computer Science terminology can help them to gain extra marks (and hopefully higher grades) in their Computing or Computer Science exams.
Computer Science Definitions was written by David Batty of Code College as a way of taking his teachings to a wider audience. David normally travels around the country delivering teacher training in schools, hotels and training centres, he also delivers online training and mentoring to teachers and pupils.
David delivers about 100 in-school teacher training courses a year on a range of computer subjects from Scratch programming through to Python, Visual Basic and Gamemaker Studio training, as well as custom courses for teachers on writing solutions to Controlled Assessments.
You can install Computer Science Definitions on your Amazon Echo from the Alexa application on your mobile phone, or from the following link.
You can also install its follow up Skill, Computer Science Quiz, which tests a childs Computer Science knowledge with a series of questions.
