Klemmchat - Unplugging Decentralized Algorithms


As part of a student thesis and subsequent publication for the "Workshop in Primary and Secondary Computing Education" (WiPSCE), the Klemmchat teaching method was developed. Klemmchat uses elements of Computer Science Unplugged to teach students from 10th grade onwards aspects of power structures and reliability measures in distributed and decentralized architectures using the example of an instant messaging application. We provide detailed material for teachers for download. If you are interested or have any questions about Klemmchat and our experiences from the teaching experiment, please feel free to contact us at any time.

The publication was presented at WiPSCE 2022 in October and can be found here.

The slides of the workshop "Klemmchat: Wie man mit Lego Duplo Steinen Demokratie in Messengern entdeckt" of the Computer Science 2023 conference of the SH-HILL interest group can be found here.
