Nagyová, Ingrid – Informatics in Education, 2018
The paper focuses on the parallels, which are rooted in the simultaneous development of mathematics and informatics. Both mathematics and informatics are based on problem-solving. However, the approaches to determining problems, solution techniques and interpretation of results are different. The paper shows different approaches of mathematics and…

da Cruz Pinheiro, Fernando; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Missfeldt Filho, Raul – Informatics in Education, 2018
Diverse initiatives have emerged to popularize the teaching of computing in K-12 mainly through programming. This, however, may not cover other important core computing competencies, such as Software Engineering (SE). Thus, in order to obtain an overview of the state of the art and practice of teaching SE competences in K-12, we carried out a…

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…

Dogan, Dilek; Gülbahar, Yasemin – Informatics in Education, 2018
It is important today to prepare pre-service teachers to integrate social media tools into their lessons and to teach them how to use social media as a learning environment for educational context. Based on this, an undergraduate course was designed to fulfil this need. Hence, the purpose of this study is to investigate the behaviours and…

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…

Kucuk, Sevda; Sisman, Burak – Informatics in Education, 2018
The aim of this study was to reveal pre-service teachers' experiences in learning robotics design and programming. Data were collected from 15 pre-service teachers through semi-structured interviews and analyzed using the content analysis method. Three themes were identified in this study: Course process, professional development and teaching…

Yoshioka, Sérgio R. I.; Ishitani, Lucila – Informatics in Education, 2018
Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) is now widely used. However, inserting new items into the question bank of a CAT requires a great effort that makes impractical the wide application of CAT in classroom teaching. One solution would be to use the tacit knowledge of the teachers or experts for a pre-classification and calibrate during the…

Jakaitiene, Audrone; Zilinskas, Antanas; Stumbriene, Dovile – Informatics in Education, 2018
Many countries have focused on the improvement of education system performance. Small number of studies consider system of a country as unit of assessment where indicators represent all levels of education system. In the paper, we propose the methodology for the performance analysis of education systems as a whole hybridizing Data Envelopment…

Juškeviciene, Anita; Dagiene, Valentina – Informatics in Education, 2018
The European Commission Science Hub has been promoting Computational Thinking (CT) as an important 21st century skill or competence. However, „despite the high interest in developing computational thinking among schoolchildren and the large public and private investment in CT initiatives, there are a number of issues and challenges for the…

Klašnja-Milicevic, Aleksandra; Ivanovic, Mirjana – Informatics in Education, 2018
Amount of educational data has been constantly increasing for years in all domains and kinds of education (formal or informal) and educational activities (teaching, learning, assessment, use of social media and collaboration and so on). Accordingly, Learning Analytics (LA) become a powerful mechanism for supporting learners, instructors, teachers,…

Pelkola, Timo; Rasila, Antti; Sangwin, Christopher – Informatics in Education, 2018
In this paper we report a study in which we have developed a teaching cycle based closely on Bloom's Learning for Mastery (LFM). The teaching cycle ameliorates some of the practical problems with LFM by making use of the STACK online assessment system to provide automated assessment and feedback to students. We report a clinical trial of this…

Lakanen, Antti Jussi; Isomöttönen, Ville – Informatics in Education, 2018
This longitudinal study investigates the impact of an extra-curricular programming workshop in student interest development in computer science. The workshop was targeted at 12-18-year old youngsters. A survey was sent to all previous participants with a known home address; 31.5% responded the survey (n = 197). This data was then combined with…

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…

Végh, Ladislav; Stoffová, Veronika – Informatics in Education, 2017
Algorithms are hard to understand for novice computer science students because they dynamically modify values of elements of abstract data structures. Animations can help to understand algorithms, since they connect abstract concepts to real life objects and situations. In the past 30-35 years, there have been conducted many experiments in the…
