Abstract

Are students uninterested in the study of computing? Do they complain that computing is "dry" or that the subject matter has no relevant application to the "real world?" Do they seem frustrated, bored, and inattentive? Your mission as a creative facilitator is not to assign a grade; your mission is to educate students to think, to learn, and to make new connections that they never before thought possible. A teacher's guidance, constructive feedback, and facilitated instruction should pave the way for students to meaningfully bridge prior knowledge with new knowledge. In this paper, the authors suggest how teachers might teach creatively, particularly with respect to computing curricula, while they enjoy the teaching and learning processes.
