Anne-Kathrin Peters; Rafael Capilla; Vlad Constantin Coroama; Rogardt Heldal; Patricia Lago; Ola Leifler; Ana Moreira; João Paulo Fernandes; Birgit Penzenstadler; Jari Porras; Colin C. Venters – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Research shows that the global society as organized today, with our current technological and economic system, is impossible to sustain. We are living in an era in which human activities in highly industrialized countries are responsible for overshooting several planetary boundaries, with poorer communities contributing the least to the problems…

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…

Noelle Brown; Benjamin Xie; Ella Sarder; Casey Fiesler; Eliane S. Wiese – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
The computing education research community now has at least 40 years of published research on teaching ethics in higher education. To examine the state of our field, we present a systematic literature review of papers in the "Association for Computing Machinery" computing education venues that describe teaching ethics in higher-education…

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,…

Soyka, Chantal; Schaper, Niclas; Bender, Elena; Striewe, Michael; Ullrich, Meike – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Modeling is an integral part of many computing-related disciplines and thus also represents a curricular core component in computing education in tertiary education. Competence models in which modeling is integrated at least to some extent already exist in some of these disciplines. However, for the core component of graphical modeling, a…

Whalley, Jacqueline; Settle, Amber; Luxton-Reilly, Andrew – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Debugging is a core skill required by programmers, yet we know little about how to effectively teach the process of debugging. The challenges of learning debugging are compounded for novices who lack experience and are still learning the tools they need to program effectively. In this work, we report a case study in which we used a think-aloud…

Heather Killen; Merijke Coenraad; Virginia Byrne; Lautaro Cabrera; Kelly Mills; Diane Jass Ketelhut; Jandelyn D. Plane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Computational thinking (CT) is playing an increasingly relevant role within disciplinary teaching in elementary school, particularly in science. However, many teachers are unfamiliar with CT, either because their education occurred before the popularization of CT or because CT instruction was not included in their pre-service coursework. For these…

Vrieler, Tina; Salminen-Karlsson, Minna – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The aim of this conceptual article is to provide a framework and a lens for educators in diversifying and making CS education more inclusive. In this article, we conceptualize the notion of computer science capital (CSC), which extends Bourdieu's sociological theory of capital and Archer et al.'s work on "science capital." The CSC…

Duran, Rodrigo; Zavgorodniaia, Albina; Sorva, Juha – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
One of the most commonly cited theories in computing education research is cognitive load theory (CLT), which explains how learning is affected by the bottleneck of human working memory and how teaching may work around that limitation. The theory has evolved over a number of decades, addressing shortcomings in earlier versions; other issues remain…

Kao, Yvonne; Matlen, Bryan; Weintrop, David – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The 1980s and 1990s saw a robust connection between computer science education and cognitive psychology as researchers worked to understand how students learn to program. More recently, academic disciplines such as science and engineering have begun drawing on cognitive psychology research and theories of learning to create instructional materials…

Allen, Becky; McGough, Andrew Stephen; Devlin, Marie – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Artificial Intelligence and its sub-disciplines are becoming increasingly relevant in numerous areas of academia as well as industry and can now be considered a core area of Computer Science. The Higher Education sector are offering more courses in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence than ever before. However, there is a lack of research…

Clarke, Peter J.; Davis, Debra L.; Buckley, Ingrid A.; Potvin, Geoff; Thirunarayanan, Mandayam; Jones, Edward L. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
There continues to be an increase in enrollments in various computing programs at academic institutions due to many job opportunities available in the information, communication, and technology sectors. This enrollment surge has presented several challenges in many Computer Science (CS), Information Technology (IT), and Software Engineering (SE)…

Sharmin, Sadia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computer science is a fast-growing field in today's digitized age, and working in this industry often requires creativity and innovative thought. An issue within computer science education, however, is that large introductory programming courses often involve little opportunity for creative thinking within coursework. The undergraduate…

Lukkarinen, Aleksi; Malmi, Lauri; Haaranen, Lassi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
During the past two decades, "event-driven programming" (EDP) has emerged as a central and almost ubiquitous concept in modern software development: Graphical user interfaces are self-evident in most mobile and web-based applications, as well as in many embedded systems, and they are most often based on reacting to events. To facilitate…

Taipalus, Toni; Seppänen, Ville – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Structured Query Language (SQL) skills are crucial in software engineering and computer science. However, teaching SQL effectively requires both pedagogical skill and considerable knowledge of the language. Educators and scholars have proposed numerous considerations for the betterment of SQL education, yet these considerations may be too numerous…
