Code Acts in Education explores how code, and the software algorithms and digital data practices it enables, are reshaping education in schools and universities. This site features updates from research led by Ben Williamson at the University of Edinburgh. Code Acts was initially funded as a seminar series by the Economic and Social Research Council (grant reference: ES/L001160/1) from 2013-2015, organized by researchers at the University of Stirling and University of Edinburgh schools of education. The series aimed to set the stage for new research and new innovations exploring the emerging interdependencies between code and education, and brought together researchers from social science, humanities and computer science disciplines, along with educators and organizations involved in digital making and computing in education.
