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…

Costa, Joana Martinho; Miranda, Guilhermina Lobato – Informatics in Education, 2019
This paper presents an approach to the initial programming learning using the four components instructional model and the Alice software. The quasi-experimental design was developed with two groups of students that attended two schools with very different socioeconomic status and school retention levels. The differences obtained in the mean of the…

von Wangenheim, Christiane Gresse; Hauck, Jean C. R.; Demetrio, Matheus Faustino; Pelle, Rafael; da Cruz Alves, Nathalia; Barbosa, Heliziane; Azevedo, Luiz Felipe – Informatics in Education, 2018
The development of computational thinking is a major topic in K-12 education. Many of these experiences focus on teaching programming using block-based languages. As part of these activities, it is important for students to receive feedback on their assignments. Yet, in practice it may be difficult to provide personalized, objective and consistent…

da Cruz Pinheiro, Fernando; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Missfeldt Filho, Raul – Informatics in Education, 2018
Diverse initiatives have emerged to popularize the teaching of computing in K-12 mainly through programming. This, however, may not cover other important core computing competencies, such as Software Engineering (SE). Thus, in order to obtain an overview of the state of the art and practice of teaching SE competences in K-12, we carried out a…
