Bern Martens, Bart Demoen, Febe Karpez, Dorien Vandenhove, Kristien Van Loon
2017 Proceedings of the 12th Workshop on Primary and Secondary Computing Education - WiPSCE '17  
Computer science (CS) is currently not yet part of the official curriculum imposed by the Flemish government for secondary education.  ...  The universities of Leuven, Gent and Hasselt, are organising several series of workshops in which teachers' skills and knowledge on Physical Computing and Algorithms are enhanced during in-service training  ...  WiPSCE '17, November 8-10, 2017, Nijmegen, Netherlands © 2017 Copyright held by the owner/author(s).

K-5 Teachers' Uses of Levels of Abstraction Focusing on Design

Jane Waite, Paul Curzon, William Marsh, Sue Sentance
2017 Proceedings of the 12th Workshop on Primary and Secondary Computing Education - WiPSCE '17  
However, the two expert computing teachers have a far greater depth of understanding of the opportunities for the use of the design level, supporting pupils to understand the level they are working at  ...  Further exploration of levels of abstraction and particularly how the design level helps K-5 learners learn to program, in the same way that planning supports novices learning to write, is warranted.  ...  WiPSCE '17, November 8-10, 2017, Nijmegen, Netherlands © 2017 Copyright held by the owner/author(s).
