What exactly is base-sixteen?
base-sixteen.org is a community-edited catalog of computer science resources that can be used for either teaching (Hello teachers!) or learning (Hello students!).
It's set up like a wiki, where anyone can sign in and edit the entries. Users can also share their experiences by adding comments or writing reviews.
If you're not searching for something in particular, you can start by browsing one of the following:
- List of tags to find all entries with a given tag
- A collection of popular lists
- Stream of recently added entries
Whom is this site for?
For CS teachers just starting out, the information here can supplement the material you get from your local CSTA chapter.
Experienced teachers can use the site to search for new material, and they can add links to their own shared material to help pave the way for the next generation of educators.
