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…

Liao, Soohyun Nam; Zingaro, Daniel; Thai, Kevin; Alvarado, Christine; Griswold, William G.; Porter, Leo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
As enrollments and class sizes in postsecondary institutions have increased, instructors have sought automated and lightweight means to identify students who are at risk of performing poorly in a course. This identification must be performed early enough in the term to allow instructors to assist those students before they fall irreparably behind.…

Merkouris, Alexandros; Chorianopoulos, Konstantinos – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Contemporary research has explored educational robotics, but it has not examined the development of computational thinking in the context of programming embodied interactions. Apart from the goal of the robot and how the robot will interact with its environment, another important aspect that should be taken into consideration is whether and how…

Marín, B.; Frez, J.; Cruz-Lemus, J.; Genero, M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Context: Programming courses are compulsory for most engineering degrees, but students' performance on these courses is often not as good as expected. Programming is difficult for students to learn, given that it includes a lot of new, complex, and abstract topics. All of this has led experts to the conclusion that new teaching techniques are…

Kaila, Erkki; Kurvinen, Einari; Lokkila, Erno; Laakso, Mikko-Jussi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2016
Educational technology offers several potential benefits for programming education. Still, to facilitate the technology properly, integration into a course must be carefully designed. In this article, we present a redesign of an object-oriented university-level programming course. In the redesign, a collaborative education tool was utilized to…

Bellettini, Carlo; Lonati, Violetta; Malchiodi, Dario; Monga, Mattia; Morpurgo, Anna; Torelli, Mauro; Zecca, Luisa – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
This article describes the state of informatics education in the Italian secondary schools, highlighting how the learning objectives set up by the Ministry of Education are difficult to meet, due to the fact that the subject is often taught by teachers not holding an informatics degree, the lack of suitable teaching material and the expectations…

Ngai, Grace; Chan, Stephen C. F.; Leong, Hong Va; Ng, Vincent T. Y. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2013
This article presents the design and development of i*CATch, a construction kit for physical and wearable computing that was designed to be scalable, plug-and-play, and to provide support for iterative and exploratory learning. It consists of a standardized construction interface that can be adapted for a wide range of soft textiles or electronic…

Rabkin, Ariel; Reiss, Charles; Katz, Randy; Patterson, David – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2013
We describe our experiences teaching MapReduce in a large undergraduate lecture course using public cloud services and the standard Hadoop API. Using the standard API, students directly experienced the quality of industrial big-data tools. Using the cloud, every student could carry out scalability benchmarking assignments on realistic hardware,…

Sondag, Tyler; Pokorny, Kian L.; Rajan, Hridesh – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2012
Students in all areas of computing require knowledge of the computing device including software implementation at the machine level. Several courses in computer science curricula address these low-level details such as computer architecture and assembly languages. For such courses, there are advantages to studying real architectures instead of…

Talon, Benedicte; Sagar, Mouldi; Kolski, Christophe – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2012
Training professionals to design and produce interactive systems requires the use of well thought-out training scenarios. Indeed, it is essential to consider pedagogical forms whose objective is providing learners with field experience. It is also necessary to motivate learners to learn about subjects that sometimes seem distant from their…

McGill, Monica M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2012
One of the goals of using robots in introductory programming courses is to increase motivation among learners. There have been several types of robots that have been used extensively in the classroom to teach a variety of computer science concepts. A more recently introduced robot designed to teach programming to novice students is the Institute…

Ludi, Stephanie; Reichlmayr, Tom – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2011
This article describes an outreach program to broaden participation in computing to include more students with visual impairments. The precollege workshops target students in grades 7-12 and engage students with robotics programming. The use of robotics at the precollege level has become popular in part due to the availability of Lego Mindstorm…

Brusilovsky, Pete; Sosnovsky, Sergey; Yudelson, Michael V.; Lee, Danielle H.; Zadorozhny, Vladimir; Zhou, Xin – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2010
Rich, interactive eLearning tools receive a lot of attention nowadays from both practitioners and researchers. However, broader dissemination of these tools is hindered by the technical difficulties of their integration into existing platforms. This article explores the technical and conceptual problems of using several interactive educational…
