The Computer "Glass Box": Teaching With A Programming Language.
Peelle, Howard A.
Using A Programing Language (APL), a "computer glass box" was designed to stimulate students to think about selected concepts as well as to elucidate and reveal understanding. This approach is pedagogically suitable for a wide range of educational levels--from elementary school children to university graduate students. Using APL computer programs, students can proceed to learn during several complementary activities. Specifically, they can: examine, analyze, predict, execute, scrutinize, experiment, modify, generalize, invent, and discuss. The ideal APL is also expository; it "speaks" to its reader, explicating concepts and procedures in concrete terms. (WCM)
