Belland, Brian R.; Kim, Chanmin; Zhang, Anna Y.; Lee, Eunseo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
This article reports the analysis of data from five different studies to identify predictors of preservice, early childhood teachers' views of (a) the nature of coding, (b) integration of coding into preschool classrooms, and (c) relation of coding to fields other than computer science (CS). Significant changes in views of coding were predicted by…

Jacob, Sharin Rawhiya; Montoya, Jonathan; Nguyen, Ha; Richardson, Debra; Warschauer, Mark – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Developing student interest is critical to supporting student learning in computer science. Research indicates that student interest is a key predictor of persistence and achievement. While there is a growing body of work on developing computing identities for diverse students, little research focuses on early exposure to develop multilingual…

Luo, Feiya; Israel, Maya; Gane, Brian – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
There is little empirical research related to how elementary students develop computational thinking (CT) and how they apply CT in problem-solving. To address this gap in knowledge, this study made use of learning trajectories (LTs; hypothesized learning goals, progressions, and activities) in CT concept areas such as sequence, repetition,…

Fronza, Ilenia; El Ioini, Nabil; Corral, Luis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2017
Computational Thinking (CT) has been recognized as one of the fundamental skills that all graduates should acquire. For this reason, motivational concerns need to be addressed at an early age of a child, and reaching students who do not consider themselves candidates for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines is important as…
