Drawing winners

For those following updates on our international study of teacher practices in teaching coding in K-8, the article is currently under review.  You can find a draft article at: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/318470729_Coding_in_K-8_International_Trends_in_Computing_Education_with_Primary-aged_Children

For all those wonderful teachers who contributed to this research, we promised that we would enter you into a drawing for an iPad mini with at least a 1 in 200 chance of winning.  The chances ended up being better than that.  I created a simple lua script that split responses into two groups.  I seeded the randomness first to get as genuine of a random pick as possible.  I then ran the script once, which you can see in the screenshot below.  Let me reiterate that each participant in this list had an equal chance of winning, insofar as randomness is concerned.  Congratulations to Robin Brunner and Jonathan O’Sullivan.  We’ll contact them for mailing instructions.  If they are not available or interested in the prizes, we’ll re-run the script until we find those who are.

Thanks to all for contributing and we hope the report is useful to you as we seek to better understand teachers’ experiences with teaching coding to kids.  We hope to do a follow-up study in the future and see how things change.
