Promoting Technology-Assisted Active Learning in Computer Science Education
Gao, Jinzhu; Hargis, Jace
Journal of Effective Teaching, v10 n2 p81-93 2010
This paper describes specific active learning strategies for teaching computer science, integrating both instructional technologies and non-technology-based strategies shown to be effective in the literature. The theoretical learning components addressed include an intentional method to help students build metacognitive abilities, as well as improve on their self-efficacy, both inside their chosen discipline and connections to other interdisciplinary topics. The results indicate that students are very open and eager to embrace novel ways to become engaged in learning in the area of computer science.
