Improving Computer Science Education examines suitable theoretical frameworks for conceptualizing teaching and learning computer science. This highly useful book provides numerous examples of practical, "real world" applications of major computer science information topics, such as: * Spreadsheets * Databases * Programming Each chapter concludes with a section that summarzies recommendations for teacher professional development. Traditionally, computer science education has been skills-focused and disconnected from the reality students face after they leave the classroom. Improving Computer Science Education makes the subject matter useful and meaningful by connecting it explicitly to students' everyday lives.

Too many universities remain wedded to outmoded ways of teaching. Too few departments ask whether what happens in their lecture halls is effective at helping students to learn and how they can encourage their faculty to teach better. But real change is possible, and Carl Wieman shows us how it can be done—through detailed, tested strategies.

Drawing together the most up-to-date research from experts all across the world, Computer Science Education provides full, current coverage of a teaching subject that's still developing. It offers the most up-to-date coverage available on this developing subject, ideal for building confidence of new PGCE students teaching a very new discipline, exploring key concepts, pedagogical approaches and assessment practices. Highlights include: - a comprehensive taxonomy of programming misconceptions from Juha Sorva - an up-to-date discussion of computational thinking by Shuchi Grover and Roy Pea - a detailed look at issues of equity in computer science education by Jill Denner and Shannon Campe - teachers' and pupils' attitudes are considered by Quintin Cutts and Peter Donaldson - Paul Curzon and colleagues explore a range of different strategies for teaching computer science concepts - Ira Diethelm and her colleagues highlight the difficulties presented by the language we use to talk about computer science. The book is structured to support the reader with chapter outlines, synopses and key points. Explanations of key concepts, real-life examples and reflective points keep the theory grounded in classroom practice.

This book provides an overview of how to approach computer science education research from a pragmatic perspective. It represents the diversity of traditions and approaches inherent in this interdisciplinary area, while also providing a structure within which to make sense of that diversity. It provides multiple 'entry points'- to literature, to methods, to topics Part One, 'The Field and the Endeavor', frames the nature and conduct of research in computer science education. Part Two, 'Perspectives and Approaches', provides a number of grounded chapters on particular topics or themes, written by experts in each domain. These chapters cover the following topics: * design * novice misconceptions * programming environments for novices * algorithm visualisation * a schema theory view on learning to program * critical theory as a theoretical approach to computer science education research Juxtaposed and taken together, these chapters indicate just how varied the perspectives and research approaches can be. These chapters, too, act as entry points, with illustrations drawn from published work.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) spends substantial resources to improve math and science education in United States. The ultimate goals of these programs are to produce qualified students that pursue careers in math and science. In this project, we examine novel Interactive Learning Modules (ILMs) that may help to improve computer science education. This study examines the usefulness of using interactive learning modules with other traditional methods of teaching. Specifically, we provide an initial validation of this usefulness through an evaluation of students' attitudes toward computer science. The results from the Teacher Survey and ILM Survey show that an ILM helps students to understand a topic better if they are provided with a brief knowledge about the topic. Attitude Survey result shows that a student is willing to take more computing classes if s/he is confident, has interest in computing courses, or believes that it will help them in getting a good job.
