Herceg, Ðorde; Herceg, Dejana – Informatics in Education, 2020
Connecting theory and practice in teaching is sometimes difficult, as it requires expensive or delicate equipment, thus limiting the teacher to giving demonstrations in which students are passive participants. Numerical mathematics, as an applied discipline, should be taught on real world examples. By using inexpensive Arduino hardware, we can…

Karnalim, Oscar; Budi, Setia; Toba, Hapnes; Joy, Mike – Informatics in Education, 2019
Source code plagiarism is an emerging issue in computer science education. As a result, a number of techniques have been proposed to handle this issue. However, comparing these techniques may be challenging, since they are evaluated with their own private dataset(s). This paper contributes in providing a public dataset for comparing these…

Fessakis, Georgios; Prantsoudi, Stavroula – Informatics in Education, 2019
The role of teachers is very important for the educational utilization of Computational Thinking (CT) and its integration in education. As with any innovation, CTs' successful integration considerably depends on the perceptions, beliefs and attitudes of the teachers who will be asked to implement it. The study of these characteristics, concerning…

Mathew, Roy; Malik, Sohail Iqbal; Tawafak, Ragad Moufaq – Informatics in Education, 2019
Problem solving skills are considered an important component in learning to program in an introductory programming (IP) course for novices. This study introduced a PROSOLVE game to enhance problem solving skills of novice programmers in the introductory programming course. The game is based on pseudo-code technique. A survey was employed to…

Gabriele, Lorella; Bertacchini, Francesca; Tavernise, Assunta; Vaca-Cárdenas, Leticia; Pantano, Pietro; Bilotta, Eleonora – Informatics in Education, 2019
In the last years, a growing trend in different educational contexts focused on Computational Thinking (CT) skills acquisition for both in-service teachers and students. But very low attention has been paid to pre-service teachers' education in regards to CT skills. To solve this issue, an empirical experimentation has been carried out with 141…

Pelkola, Timo; Rasila, Antti; Sangwin, Christopher – Informatics in Education, 2018
In this paper we report a study in which we have developed a teaching cycle based closely on Bloom's Learning for Mastery (LFM). The teaching cycle ameliorates some of the practical problems with LFM by making use of the STACK online assessment system to provide automated assessment and feedback to students. We report a clinical trial of this…

Végh, Ladislav; Stoffová, Veronika – Informatics in Education, 2017
Algorithms are hard to understand for novice computer science students because they dynamically modify values of elements of abstract data structures. Animations can help to understand algorithms, since they connect abstract concepts to real life objects and situations. In the past 30-35 years, there have been conducted many experiments in the…
