Insights from children about testing: how children who’ve read the Dragons Out book about software testing learn
Abstract: The popular Dragons Out book about software testing is much liked. Schools have used the free supporting software testing presentation to organize a lesson or two to talk about software testing. I’ve interviewed children about how they learned software testing and what do they think about it. Now it is time to reveal the secrets of how children learn to test. There are also insights into how adults could learn in a much more effective and fun way. We’ll talk about storytelling as a way to learn but also of hands-on practice and fun as an essential learning element. I’ll also recap the Dragons Out book project.
