Deepti Tagare – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Background and Objective: Teacher assessment research suggests that teachers have good conceptual understanding of CT. However, to model CT-based problem-solving in their classrooms, teachers need to develop the ability to recognize when and how to apply CT skills. Does existing professional development (PD) equip teachers to know when and how to…

Rafi Santo; Aman Yadav; David Phelps – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Those working toward equitable K-12 computing education in the United States have always had their work cut out for them: understanding how best to teach, developing robust curricula, designing novel tools, building teacher capacity, and supporting systemic change in schools to bring equitable computing education to young people. Collectively,…

Matthieu Branth├┤me – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
This article reports on a design-based research study centered on the conception and the assessment of the "Pyrates" application. This online serious game aims at introducing Python programming to K-12 students while easing the transition from block-based to text-based languages. After we present the various aspects underlying the…

Tshukudu, Ethel; Sentance, Sue; Adelakun-Adeyemo, Oluwatoyin; Nyaringita, Brenda; Quille, Keith; Zhong, Ziling – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Motivation: As K-12 computing education becomes more established throughout the world, there is an increasing focus on accessibility for all, whether in a particular country or setting or in areas of the world that may not yet have computing established. This is primarily articulated as an equity issue. The recently developed "capacity…

van der Meulen, Anna; Hartendorp, Mijke; Voorn, Wendy; Hermans, Felienne – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Programming education is strongly emerging in elementary and high school. Diversity and inclusion are important topics, however, insights on suited programming materials for younger learners with visual impairments are lacking. A wide range of programming materials for children exists, diverse in both what is being programmed (output) and how this…

Ryoo, Jean J.; Morris, Alicia; Margolis, Jane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
The Computer Science for All movement is bringing CS to K-12 classrooms across the nation. At the same time, new technologies created by computer scientists have been reproducing existing inequities that directly impact today's youth, while being "promoted and perceived as more objective or progressive than the discriminatory systems of a…

Rankin, Yolanda A.; Thomas, Jakita O.; Erete, Sheena – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Despite the increasing number of women receiving bachelor's degrees in computing (i.e., Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, etc.), a closer look reveals that the percentage of Black women in computing has significantly dropped in recent years, highlighting the underrepresentation of Black women and its negative impact…

Oleson, Alannah; Wortzman, Brett; Ko, Amy J. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Design is a distinct discipline with its own practices, tools, professions, and areas of scholarship. However, practitioners from other fields often leverage aspects of design in their own work, leading to subfields like engineering design and architecture design that are neither wholly design nor wholly the intersecting discipline. Similarly,…

Margulieux, Lauren E.; Morrison, Brian B.; Franke, Baker; Ramilison, Harivololona – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
The subgoal learning framework has improved performance for novice programmers in higher education, but it has only started to be applied and studied in K-12 (primary/secondary). Programming education in K-12 is growing, and many international initiatives are attempting to increase participation, including curricular initiatives like Computer…

Jayathirtha, Gayithri; Kafai, Yasmin B. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Electronic textiles, which integrate computation with fabrics through a redesigned interface of microcontrollers, sensors, and actuators, have expanded possibilities not only for engineering, fashion, and human-computer interaction but also for computer science education itself. While individual studies involving electronic textiles have shown…

Weintrop, David; Coenraad, Merijke; Palmer, Jen; Franklin, Diana – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
In response to the growing call to bring the powerful ideas of computer science to all learners, education decision makers, including teachers and administrators, are tasked with making consequential decisions on what curricula to use. Often, these decision makers have not been trained in computer science and are unfamiliar with the concepts…

Garvin, Megean; Neary, Michael; DesJardins, Marie – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
High school computing education reform efforts have been ongoing across the United States, particularly in the past decade. Although national Computer Science (CS) for All initiatives are promising, states retain control over education policies. Recent computing education reform efforts in the state of Maryland (U.S.A.) focused on providing every…

Denner, Jill; Campe, Shannon; Werner, Linda – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
It is widely believed that there are educational benefits to making computer games, but there is no systematic review of research on this topic. This article describes a meta-synthesis of research on children designing and programming computer games that investigates the extent to which there is evidence of benefits for computer science learning…

Yadav, Aman; Berges, Marc – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Computer science education efforts are expanding across the globe to equip students with the necessary computing skills for today's digital world. However, preparing students to become literate in computing activities requires the training of tens of thousands of teachers in computer science. The discrepancy between student needs and teacher…

Sentance, Sue; Sinclair, Jane; Simmons, Carl; Csizmadia, Andrew – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2018
The introduction of Computing to the national curriculum in England has led to a situation where in-service teachers need to develop subject knowledge and pedagogical expertise in computer science, which presents a significant challenge. Professional learning opportunities can support this; these may be most effective when situated in the…
