Description of impact

Phiro, a coding and robotics platform for children aged 4-18, cites Turner's research to support the justification of their platform and encourage its use.

How have research outputs led to this impact?

Turner's research argues for the importance of coding and programming in early years education. The cited research from the 'Proceedings of 8th Annual Conference of the Subject Centre for Information and Computer Sciences' (2007) states, 'Programming robots in the context of problem solving provides a visual and physical way to see the outcome of problem solving.'
