Dr. Kölling leads the Programming Tools group within the Computing Education research group where he works with others - staff members and PhD students - on developing software tools for the teaching and learning of programming. BlueJ and Greenfoot are part of that work. He will give an overview of his work and will enthusiastically entertain questions and comments from the audience. Snacks will be provided!

BlueJ (www.BlueJ.org) is a free Java Development Environment and used by millions worldwide. Greenfoot (www.Greenfoot.org) is a combination between a framework for creating two-dimensional grid assignments in Java and an IDE. Greenfoot teaches object orientation with Java.
