Who is this site for?

This site is for all those involved in the International Baccalaureate Computer Science Programme. For those who are not familiar with this programme, it is approximately equivalent to a first-year degree (bachelor's) course in the UK or US.

Most of the material here will be less relevant to the new IB Computer Science program starting first teaching in 2012 but, if you select the OOP option and teach Java it may have some value. It is unlikely that it will be kept up-to-date - I was a long time Deputy Chief Examiner and acting Chief Examiner for IB Computer Science but I no longer have any contact with the IBO, by choice.

Some material for the new program, resulting from an open workshop that I ran in 2012 can be found at my Moodle site - Moodle NZ.

Who made this?

My name is Richard Jones, In recent times I have been a teacher, lecturer, Project Manager and eLearning Specialist. I recently completed a 3 1/2 year contract at The Southport School, Queensland.
