Martin, Kit; Horn, Michael; Wilensky, Uri – Informatics in Education, 2020
This paper introduces constructivist dialogue mapping (CDM), a new type of concept mapping. CDM encodes what people learn during a non-goal directed learning activity. CDM is a practical means to outline the mini theories users fluidly construct as they explore open-ended learning environments. To demonstrate the method, in this paper we use CDM…

Fronza, Ilenia; Corral, Luis; Pahl, Claus – Informatics in Education, 2020
Computer programming skills have been growing as a professional competence also to unqualified end-users who need to develop software in their professional practice. Quality evaluation models of end-user-developed products are still scarce. In this paper, we propose a metric that leverages "When", a condition typically found in…

Mamcenko, Jelena; Kurilovas, Eugenijus; Krikun, Irina – Informatics in Education, 2019
The paper aims to present application of Educational Data Mining and particularly Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) for students profiling and further to design a personalised intelligent learning system. The main aim here is to develop a recommender system which should help the learners to create learning units (scenarios) that are the most suitable for…

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…

Vieira, Estela Aparecida Oliveira; da Silveira, Aleph Campos; Martins, Ronei Ximenes – Informatics in Education, 2019
This work presents a systematic review whose objective was to identify heuristics applicable to the evaluation of the usability of educational games. Heuristics are usability engineering methods that aim to detect problems in the use of a system during its development and/or when its interface is in interaction with the user. Therefore, applying…

Nygren, Eeva; Blignaut, A. Seugnet; Leendertz, Verona; Sutinen, Erkki – Informatics in Education, 2019
Technology-enhanced learning generally focuses on the cognitive rather than the affective domain of learning. This multi-method evaluation of the INBECOM project (Integrating Behaviourism and Constructivism in Mathematics) was conducted from the point of view of affective learning levels of Krathwohl "et al." (1964). The research…

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…
