Galloway, Jerry P.
Journal of Research on Computing in Education, v24 n4 p499-512 Sum 1992
The effects of teaching with analogies on students' conceptual understanding and explanations of educational computing were examined with three groups of preservice teachers in a computer literacy course. Students who were taught using complete analogies were found to have a better grasp of computing concepts than those taught using undeveloped analogies or no analogies. (25 references) (LAE)
