Here’s one of the first “Digital Humanities” articles I read, via Professor Rybak’s Twitter post, entitled “5 Clever Ways to Get Kids Interested in Computer Programming”:
I value this article for the mindset it gave me about this endeavor. I should approach digital humanities like a child approaches anything: with curiosity, without the assumption that I already “know” what I’m doing or that I will look stupid asking questions. The programs featured in this article work well to spark interested not only in children, but in anyone looking to “teach” his or her mind how to approach problems with a programming mindset. My group partner and I took a special interest in the “Scratch” program, which we decided to use as the base of our semester’s project.
