Fouh, Eric; Akbar, Monika; Shaffer, Clifford A. – Computers in the Schools, 2012
Computer science core instruction attempts to provide a detailed understanding of dynamic processes such as the working of an algorithm or the flow of information between computing entities. Such dynamic processes are not well explained by static media such as text and images, and are difficult to convey in lecture. The authors survey the history…
