Christel Sirocchi; Annika Pofantis Ostergren; Alessandro Bogliolo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Digital competence (DC) is a broad set of skills, attitudes, and knowledge for confident, critical, and responsible use of digital technologies in every aspect of life. DC proves essential in the contemporary digital landscape, yet its diffusion is hindered by biases, misunderstandings, and limited awareness. Teaching Informatics in the…

Muldner, Kasia; Jennings, Jay; Chiarelli, Veronica – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
This article reviews literature on worked examples in the context of programming activities. We focus on two types of examples, namely, code-tracing and code-generation, because there is sufficient research on these to warrant a review. We synthesize key results according to themes that emerged from the review. This synthesis aims to provide…

Szabo, Claudia; Sheard, Judy – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The use of established and discipline-specific theories within research and practice is an indication of the maturity of a discipline. With computing education research as a relatively young discipline, there has been recent interest in investigating theories that may prove foundational to work in this area, with discipline-specific theories and…

Malmi, Lauri; Sheard, Judy; Kinnunen, Päivi; Simon; Sinclair, Jane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Use of theory within a field of research provides the foundation for designing effective research programs and establishing a deeper understanding of the results obtained. This, together with the emergence of domain-specific theory, is often taken as an indicator of the maturity of any research area. This article explores the development and…

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…

Vásquez, Francisco; Calderón, Juan Felipe; Meza, Federico; Vásquez, Andrea – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
There is increasing interest in computer science and computing bachelor programs due to the growing importance of technology in the globalized world. Thus, as higher education institutions strive to serve a diverse student demographic, it is salient to gauge their programming abilities to improve guidance on learning processes regarding their…

Bhagya Munasinghe; Tim Bell; Anthony Robins – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
In learning to program and understanding how a programming language controls a computer, learners develop both insights and misconceptions whilst their mental models are gradually refined. It is important that the learner is able to distinguish the different elements and roles of a computer (compiler, interpreter, memory, etc.), which novice…

Loksa, Dastyni; Margulieux, Lauren; Becker, Brett A.; Craig, Michelle; Denny, Paul; Pettit, Raymond; Prather, James – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Metacognition and self-regulation are important skills for successful learning and have been discussed and researched extensively in the general education literature for several decades. More recently, there has been growing interest in understanding how metacognitive and self-regulatory skills contribute to student success in the context of…

Neutens, Tom; Coolsaet, Kris; Wyffels, Francis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
In many countries, computer programming is becoming an integral part of the secondary school curriculum. However, many teachers, especially in the first years of Flemish secondary school, have limited experience with teaching programming. To improve their knowledge about programming, many different types of professional development programs have…

Arawjo, Ian; Mogos, Ariam – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Even in the turn toward justice-oriented pedagogy, computing education tends to overlook the quality of intergroup relationships, which risks entrenching division. In this article, we establish an intercultural approach to computing education, informed by intercultural and peace education, prejudice reduction, and the sociology of racism and…

Erete, Sheena; Thomas, Karla; Nacu, Denise; Dickinson, Jessa; Thompson, Naomi; Pinkard, Nichole – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Global protests and civil unrest in 2020 has renewed the world's interest in addressing injustice due to structural racism and oppression toward Black and Latinx people in all aspects of society, including computing. In this article, we argue that to address and repair the harm created by institutions, policies, and practices that have…

Bellino, Alessio; Herskovic, Valeria; Hund, Michael; Munoz-Gama, Jorge – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
A common belief among students is that computing is a boring subject that lacks a connection to the real world. The first class (one 80-minute session) in an introductory computer science course may be an appropriate instance to combat such a belief. Previous studies have used course-wide interventions, e.g., games and physical/tangible devices to…

Kemp, Peter E. J.; Wong, Billy; Berry, Miles G. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
The change in the English computing curriculum and the shift towards computer science (CS) has been closely observed by other countries. Female participation remains a concern in most jurisdictions, but female attainment in CS is relatively unstudied. Using the English national pupil database, we analyzed all exam results (n = 5,370,064) for…

Fiebrink, Rebecca – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This article aims to lay a foundation for the research and practice of machine learning education for creative practitioners. It begins by arguing that it is important to teach machine learning to creative practitioners and to conduct research about this teaching, drawing on related work in creative machine learning, creative computing education,…

Tenenberg, Josh; Chinn, Donald – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
It is common to think of learning as the acquisition of knowledge by an individual learner. Starting a century ago, Lev Vygotsky developed a different perspective on learning, initiating a tradition of educational research whose momentum and influence continue to grow. One of Vygotsky's key principles is the "general genetic law of cultural…
