Instrumenting 3D virtual worlds for computer science education to support teaching and learning [article]

David Thompson, University Of Canterbury
In order to determine how well the data capture techniques used could be transferred to another 3D virtual environment, and to address the challenge of providing a 3D virtual learning environment as a  ...  This thesis presents methods for adding data capture instrumentation to 3D virtual learning environments, determining the extent to which the data that is captured from them can be used to support the  ...  In Chapters 5 and 6, some of the earlier results were published under the title "Virtually Unplugged: rich data capture to evaluate CS pedagogy in 3D virtual worlds" [98] .  ...

Computational Thinking in Education: Where does it Fit? A systematic literary review [article]

James Lockwood, Aidan Mooney
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Overall it was found in this review that, although there is a lot of work currently being done around the world in many different educational contexts, the work relating to CT is still in its infancy.  ...  It was also found that Computer Science/Computing, which could be the most obvious place to teach CT, has yet to become a mainstream subject in some countries, although this is improving.  ...  They state that the interviews seem to "capture rich data aimed at contextualizing projects and understanding children's thinking".  ...

An Examination of Abstraction in K-12 Computer Science Education

Christine Liebe, Tracy Camp
2019 Proceedings of the 19th Koli Calling International Conference on Computing Education Research - Koli Calling '19  
All teachers in the study were unsure what student abstraction abilities should be according to grade level.  ...  A broad conceptual framework including philosophy, psychology, constructionism, and computational thinking was aligned with the descriptive qualitative design and guided the literature review and data  ...  Perhaps a more compelling reason than economics for including computing in K-12 education is the argument that computer scientists are the architects of our virtual world.  ...

On the Future of Computational Thinking Education: Moving beyond the Digital Agenda, a Discourse Analysis Perspective

Vladimiras Dolgopolovas, Valentina Dagiene
2021 Sustainability  
The novelty of this study lies in the attempt to look holistically at CT and its perspectives, considering it as an evolving phenomenon per se, leaving aside discussion on its internal characteristics  ...  In the conclusion, the options for development and possible trends in the reconstitution of the CT phenomenon are outlined.  ...  Data Availability Statement: Original data available on request. They are not archived in any repository. Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

2020 Zenodo  
In this hands-on workshop, participants will engage in making scrappy DIY robots out of everyday materials that are not designed to work perfectly.  ...  We'll use recycled materials, hobby motors, batteries and homemade switches in the construction process and show some possibilities for adding programming or digital tools to the mix.  ...  The activity in this paper showed just one approach to using ML-ABM in education: to increase complexity by adding a level in the form of a model.  ...

Introducing Computational Thinking in K-12 Education: Historical, Epistemological, Pedagogical, Cognitive, and Affective Aspects

Michael Lodi
CS should be introduced in K-12 as a tool to understand and act in our digital world, and to use the power of computation for meaningful learning. CT is the conceptual sediment of that learning.  ...  ., plugged and unplugged)? • Cognitive aspects. What is the sentiment of generalist teachers not trained to teach CS?

Developing a learning goal framework for computational thinking in computationally integrated physics classrooms [article]

Daniel P. Weller and Theodore E. Bott and Marcos D. Caballero and Paul W. Irving
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We use in-class video data as existence proofs of the computational thinking practices proposed in our framework.  ...  However, there is a dearth of scholarly literature on how best to teach and to assess this topic, especially in disciplinary science courses.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank the National Science Foundation (DRL-1741575) for funding and the teachers for graciously donating their time and effort to our research.  ...
