Understanding Computational Thinking before Programming: Developing Guidelines for the Design of Games to Learn Introductory Programming through Game-Play
International Journal of Game-Based Learning Vol. 1, No. 3 (July 2011) pp. 30–52
This paper outlines an innovative game-based approach to learning introductory programming that is grounded in the development of computational thinking at an abstract conceptual level, but also provides a direct contextual relationship between game-...
Experimental Evaluation Results of a Game Based Learning Approach for Learning Introductory Programming
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2012 (Oct 09, 2012) pp. 636–647
There is a common belief that educational video games designed to deliver conceptual and applied knowledge on programming constructs are helpful to students who are learning introductory programming. A limited number of studies have been undertaken...
Developing a game model for computational thinking and learning traditional programming through game-play
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2010 (Oct 18, 2010) pp. 1378–1386
In this paper, we discuss the problems students face when learning computer programming and describe our ongoing work that enables students to learn programming through the use of puzzle solving game-play. Learning how to program is difficult and...
