Programming work is essential pedagogy

This blog continues the series of blogs on the Practical Importance of Programming in Computing Education by the NCCE Academic Board, based on the white paper, Practical Programming in Computing Education.

Here we argue that it is an important pedagogical tool for teaching computing more generally.
