Rolka, Christine; Remshagen, Anja – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2015
Contextualized learning is considered beneficial for student success. In this article, we assess the impact of context-based learning tools on student grade performance in an introductory computer science course. In particular, we investigate two central questions: (1) does the use context-based learning tools, robots and animations, affect…
