Comparing novice programing environments for use in secondary education: App Inventor for Android vs. Alice

Stamatios Papadakis, Vasileios Orfanakis
2018 International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning  
In this paper, we investigate the use of Alice and App Inventor for Android, with regard to their effectiveness for teaching and learning programing in secondary education students.  ...  Coding acquisition is necessary as it is used in a wide range of occupations. However, computer programing is difficult to learn and programing courses often have high drop-out rates.  ...  Additionally, Alice is the only programing environment for novices that supports the use of 3D graphics.  ...
