Rich, Peter J.; Browning, Samuel F.; Perkins, McKay; Shoop, Timothy; Yoshikawa, Emily; Belikov, Olga M. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
The teaching of computing is becoming an essential addition to twenty-first-century learning. An important part of this new addition is the teaching of computing in earlier grades, starting as early as kindergarten in some countries. Yet, there is little research that reports on computing practices in earlier grades. The purpose of this study was…
