Kwon, Kyungbin; Cheon, Jongpil – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2019
Although teachers need to assess computational thinking (CT) for computer science education in K-12, it is not easy for them to evaluate students' programs based on the perspective. The purpose of this study was to investigate students' CT skills reflected in their Scratch programs. The context of the study was a middle school coding club where…

How, Meng-Leong; Looi, Chee-Kit – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2018
Computational Thinking (CT) is pervasive in our daily lives and is useful for problem-solving. Decision-making is a crucial part of problem-solving. In the extant literature, problem-solving strategies in educational settings are often conveniently attributed to intuition; however, it is well documented that computer programmers might even have…

Jenkins, Craig W. – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2017
This paper is part of a wider action research project taking place at a secondary school in South Wales, UK. The overarching aim of the project is to examine the potential for aspects of literacy and computational thinking to be developed using extensible 'build your own block' programming activities. This paper examines classroom talk at an…
