Scalable game design and the development of a checklist for getting computational thinking into public schools

Alexander Repenning, David Webb, Andri Ioannidou
2010 Proceedings of the 41st ACM technical symposium on Computer science education - SIGCSE '10  
Game design appears to be a promising approach to interest K-12 students in Computer Science. Unfortunately, balancing motivational and educational concerns is truly challenging.  ...  Over a number of years, we have explored how to achieve a functional balance by creating a curriculum that combines increasingly complex game designs, computational thinking patterns and authoring tools  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This material is based in part upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under grant numbers 0833612 and DMI-0712571.  ...
