Canedo, Edna Dias; Santos, Giovanni Almeida; Leite, Leticia Lopes – Informatics in Education, 2018
The teaching-learning methodology adopted in the Introduction to Computer Science classes may be a process that makes it difficult to understand the principles of programming language for undergraduate students in Computer Science and related areas, generating high failure and course drop out rates. This paper presents an analysis of the results…

Nagyová, Ingrid – Informatics in Education, 2018
The paper focuses on the parallels, which are rooted in the simultaneous development of mathematics and informatics. Both mathematics and informatics are based on problem-solving. However, the approaches to determining problems, solution techniques and interpretation of results are different. The paper shows different approaches of mathematics and…

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…

Hickmott, Daniel; Prieto-Rodriguez, Elena – Informatics in Education, 2018
Coding and computational thinking have recently become compulsory skills in many school systems globally. Teaching these new skills presents a challenge for many teachers. A notable example of professional development designed using Constructionist principles to address this challenge is "ScratchEd". Upon reflecting on her experiences…

Dogan, Dilek; Gülbahar, Yasemin – Informatics in Education, 2018
It is important today to prepare pre-service teachers to integrate social media tools into their lessons and to teach them how to use social media as a learning environment for educational context. Based on this, an undergraduate course was designed to fulfil this need. Hence, the purpose of this study is to investigate the behaviours and…

Kynigos, Chronis; Grizioti, Marianthi – Informatics in Education, 2018
During the last decade, coding has come to the foreground of educational trends as a strong mean for developing students' Computational Thinking (or CT). However, there is still limited research that looks at coding and Computational Thinking activities through the lens of constructionism. In this paper, we discuss how the knowledge we already…

Kucuk, Sevda; Sisman, Burak – Informatics in Education, 2018
The aim of this study was to reveal pre-service teachers' experiences in learning robotics design and programming. Data were collected from 15 pre-service teachers through semi-structured interviews and analyzed using the content analysis method. Three themes were identified in this study: Course process, professional development and teaching…

Yoshioka, Sérgio R. I.; Ishitani, Lucila – Informatics in Education, 2018
Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) is now widely used. However, inserting new items into the question bank of a CAT requires a great effort that makes impractical the wide application of CAT in classroom teaching. One solution would be to use the tacit knowledge of the teachers or experts for a pre-classification and calibrate during the…

Jakaitiene, Audrone; Zilinskas, Antanas; Stumbriene, Dovile – Informatics in Education, 2018
Many countries have focused on the improvement of education system performance. Small number of studies consider system of a country as unit of assessment where indicators represent all levels of education system. In the paper, we propose the methodology for the performance analysis of education systems as a whole hybridizing Data Envelopment…
