Nygren, Eeva; Blignaut, A. Seugnet; Leendertz, Verona; Sutinen, Erkki – Informatics in Education, 2019
Technology-enhanced learning generally focuses on the cognitive rather than the affective domain of learning. This multi-method evaluation of the INBECOM project (Integrating Behaviourism and Constructivism in Mathematics) was conducted from the point of view of affective learning levels of Krathwohl "et al." (1964). The research…

Fessakis, Georgios; Prantsoudi, Stavroula – Informatics in Education, 2019
The role of teachers is very important for the educational utilization of Computational Thinking (CT) and its integration in education. As with any innovation, CTs' successful integration considerably depends on the perceptions, beliefs and attitudes of the teachers who will be asked to implement it. The study of these characteristics, concerning…

Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Araújo e Silva de Medeiros, Giselle; Missfeldt Filho, Raul; Petri, Giani; da Cruz Pinheiro, Fernando; Ferreira, M. Nathalie; Hauck, Jean C. R. – Informatics in Education, 2019
Teaching computational thinking in K-12 as a 21st century skill is becoming increasingly important. Computational thinking describes a specific way of reasoning building on concepts and processes derived from algorithms and programming. One way to teach these concepts is games as an effective and efficient alternative. This article presents…

Da Cruz Alves, Nathalia; Gresse Von Wangenheim, Christiane; C.R. Hauck, Jean – Informatics in Education, 2019
As computing has become an integral part of our world, demand for teaching computational thinking in K-12 has increased. One of its basic competences is programming, often taught by learning activities without a predefined solution using block-based visual programming languages. Automatic assessment tools can support teachers with their assessment…
