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…

Gabriele, Lorella; Bertacchini, Francesca; Tavernise, Assunta; Vaca-Cárdenas, Leticia; Pantano, Pietro; Bilotta, Eleonora – Informatics in Education, 2019
In the last years, a growing trend in different educational contexts focused on Computational Thinking (CT) skills acquisition for both in-service teachers and students. But very low attention has been paid to pre-service teachers' education in regards to CT skills. To solve this issue, an empirical experimentation has been carried out with 141…

Hickmott, Daniel; Prieto-Rodriguez, Elena – Informatics in Education, 2018
Coding and computational thinking have recently become compulsory skills in many school systems globally. Teaching these new skills presents a challenge for many teachers. A notable example of professional development designed using Constructionist principles to address this challenge is "ScratchEd". Upon reflecting on her experiences…

Kynigos, Chronis; Grizioti, Marianthi – Informatics in Education, 2018
During the last decade, coding has come to the foreground of educational trends as a strong mean for developing students' Computational Thinking (or CT). However, there is still limited research that looks at coding and Computational Thinking activities through the lens of constructionism. In this paper, we discuss how the knowledge we already…

Bell, Judith; Bell, Tim – Informatics in Education, 2018
Computational thinking is becoming common in K-12 curricula, and at the same time there is interest in how STEM subjects can be integrated with the Arts (referred to as STEAM). There are some obvious connections between music and computation, but the idea of engaging with genuine computational thinking while also having authentic music learning…

Izu, Cruz; Mirolo, Claudio; Settle, Amber; Mannila, Linda; Stupuriene, Gabriele – Informatics in Education, 2017
Although there is no universal agreement that students should learn programming, many countries have reached a consensus on the need to expose K-12 students to Computational Thinking (CT). When, what and how to teach CT in schools are open questions and we attempt to address them by examining how well students around the world solved problems in…

Ušpuriene, Ana; Sakalauskas, Leonidas; Dumskis, Valerijonas – Informatics in Education, 2017
The paper considers a problem of financial resource allocation in a higher education institution. The basic financial management instruments and the multi-stage cost minimization model created are described involving financial instruments to constraints. Both societal and institutional factors that determine the costs of educating students are…

Yang, Sojung; Park, Seongbin – Informatics in Education, 2014
There are many important issues in informatics and many agree that algorithms and programming are most important issues that need to be included in informatics education (Dagiene and Jevsikova, 2012). In this paper, we propose how some of these issues can be easily taught using the notion of a formal system which consists of axioms and inference…
