How pair programming, peer instruction, and media computation have improved computer science education.
I am the co-founder of a non-profit which produces free, open-source courseware and on-line teacher-training materials to introduce kids, ages 10+ to programming. Our work can be found in two locations:
1) At www.TeachingKidsProgramming.org (for Java and SmallBasic)
2) At www.Pluralsight.com (for C# - search on 'teaching kids')
Our method, intentional programming, includes use of pair programming, peer support and teaching, and visual output. We have personally taught over 1,500 children in 12 countries with great success. We welcome use of, review of and input about our materials from the ACM community.
We are part of the MONA Foundation (a US 501c3) as 'Teaching Kids Programming'
