Secondary Computer Science Teachers' Pedagogical Needs

Olgun Sadik, Anne Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Thomas Brush
2020 International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools  
The most common pedagogical need expressed was learning student-centered strategies for teaching CS and guiding students' understanding with the use of scaffolding and team-management strategies in CS  ...  Furthermore, addressing students' beliefs in CS and their preconceptions in math and reading were important factors influencing teaching CS effectively in secondary schools.  ...  Therefore, most of the interviewees solicited strategies to motivate these students with low interest into learning CS.  ...
