Utting, Ian; Cooper, Stephen; Kolling, Michael; Maloney, John; Resnick, Mitchel
ACM Transactions on Computing Education, v10 n4 Article 17 Nov 2010
This article distills a discussion about the goals, mechanisms, and effects of three environments which aim to support the acquisition and development of computing concepts (problem solving and programming) in pre-University and non-technical students: Alice, Greenfoot, and Scratch. The conversation started in a special session on the topic at the 2010 ACM SIGCSE Symposium on Computer Science Education and continued during the creation of the resulting Special Issue of the ACM Transactions on Computing Education. (Contains 1 footnote.)
