Unplugged is being developed by many people throughout the world, in many different projects depending on the interests of the people involved and the needs of their communities.
It's easy to get involved! You're most welcome to join one of these projects by contacting the people responsible, or start your own project and let us know what you're doing so we can add it here.

Unplugged in Virtual Worlds

Developing the kinaesthetic activities in Second Life to make the accessible, including for people with mobility disabilities.

Work is underway adapting the activities for people with mobility and visual disabilities, and a virtual world offers an exciting way to provide such an experience for those with mobility issues; it may also be suitable for students who are isolated for social or personal reasons.

Unplugged and Robotics, Unplugged and students programming languages (Scratch, Alice)

School curricula and special events often use robotics, or programming languages like Scratch and Alice, to expose students to computer science concepts. A project run by Tim Bell is planned to start soon combining these with CS Unplugged; for example, students could do a kinesthetic activity, and then implement the activity using a robot or programming language.



为这个项目工作的团队中有: Tim Bell, Mick Grimley (U of Canterbury, NZ), Daniela Marghitu (Auburn University, Alabama, USA), Hiroki Manabe (Kanagawa Vocational Training School for Persons with Disabilities, Japan) and Giovanni Bianco (University of Verona, Italy). 最近我们的团队成员正在开发“排序网络”。

Si Piuh 的漫画 Isaac Freeman

Si Piuh的世界里我们会用漫画的形式来描述Unplugged的活动,就像讲述一个故事一样。.

Unplugged 和机器人学, Unplugged 和程序设计(Scratch, Alice)

学校的课程以及一些特定的活动常常会使用机器人学,或是像Scratch 和 Alice这样的程序设计语言,来向学生揭示计算机科学的概念。一个由 Tim Bell 运作的项目想要把这些概念与 CS Unplugged合并。比如说:学生们可以做一些运动性的活动,用机器人学和程序设计的概念来实施这些活动。
