Robertson, Judy; Gray, Stuart; Martin, Toye; Booth, Josephine – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2020
We argue that understanding the cognitive foundations of computational thinking will assist educators to improve children's learning in computing. We explain the conceptual relationship between executive functions and aspects of computational thinking. We present initial empirical data from 23 eleven year old learners which investigates the…

von Wangenheim, Aldo; von Wangenheim, Christiane Gresse; Pacheco, Fernando S.; Hauck, Jean C. R.; Ferreira, Miriam Nathalie F. – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2017
Computing education in schools faces several problems, such as a lack of computing teachers and time in an already overloaded curriculum. A solution can be a multidisciplinary approach, integrating the teaching of computing within other subjects, creating the need to motivate teachers from other disciplines to teach computing in middle school.…

Johnson, Claire – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2017
"Game Maker" is widely used in UK secondary schools, yet under-researched in that context. This paper presents the findings of a qualitative case study that explores how authoring computer games using Game Maker can support the learning of basic programming concepts in a mainstream UK secondary setting. The research draws on the learning…
