I usually discuss,enroll or participate in discussions my opinions about the intrest based learning. Its fun and adhoc which keeps everyone intrest. The lack of consistency ,predictability and randomness in the aproach for the shared intrest activities is thrilling. My daughter school has science and math nights where the kids get on to play and experience scientific concepts and mathematical understanding in real time. The parents and kids get to experiment and learn from the outcome. The sheer nature of the kids sharing and playing with the science experiments is fun based on there interests .Hence these kinds of experimental labs in Computing where along with the scientific concepts ,mathematical concepts makes sense. The ability to see the end result or objective of a computing concept or computing algorithm makes sense to kids as they lack imagination and tend to be more of a practical follower..
Ability to view ,support and even raise such unique computing activites result oriented objectives will make learning fun for the next generation kids who are addicted to smart gadgets games and devices videos instead of learning activities related to computational thinking capabilities.
