Two-Computer Pair Programming: Exploring a Feedback Intervention to improve Collaborative Talk in Elementary Students.

COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION, 32(1), 3–29.

By: Z. Zakaria n, J. Vandenberg n, J. Tsan n, D. Boulden n, C. Lynch n, K. Boyer*, E. Wiebe n

author keywords: Pair programming; collaboration; elementary school; feedback; intervention
TL;DR: This study employs an intervention to explore the role instructor-directed feedback plays on elementary students’ dyadic collaboration during 2-computer pair programming and highlights ways to support students in pair programming contexts so that they can maximize the benefits afforded through these experiences.

Prompting collaborative and exploratory discourse: An epistemic network analysis study

Vandenberg, J., Zakaria, Z., Tsan, J., Iwanski, A., Lynch, C., Boyer, K. E., & Wiebe, E. (2021, August 7). INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF COMPUTER-SUPPORTED COLLABORATIVE LEARNING, Vol. 8.

By: J. Vandenberg n, Z. Zakaria n, J. Tsan*, A. Iwanski*, C. Lynch n, K. Boyer*, E. Wiebe n

author keywords: Epistemic network analysis; Primary grades; Discourse; Pair programming; Collaboration
TL;DR: An easy-to-implement prompting intervention in the context of collaborative (pair) programming with upper elementary students to demonstrate the potential of ENA was found that intervention students—those given empirically-derived prompts in support of collaborative and exploratory talk—asked questions, justified their thinking, and offered alternative ideas in ways that were both qualitatively and quantitatively different from control students.

Elementary Students' Understanding of CS Terms

ACM TRANSACTIONS ON COMPUTING EDUCATION, 20(3).

By: J. Vandenberg n, J. Tsan n, D. Boulden n, Z. Zakaria n, C. Lynch n, K. Boyer*, E. Wiebe n

author keywords: Cognitive interviewing; elementary; computer science; instrument development
TL;DR: The refinement of a validated survey to measure upper elementary students’ attitudes and perspectives about computer science (CS) indicated that students could not explain the terms computer programs nor computer science as expected, and struggled to understand how coding may support their learning in other domains.

"I Think We Should...": Analyzing Elementary Students' Collaborative Processes for Giving and Taking Suggestions

SIGCSE'18: PROCEEDINGS OF THE 49TH ACM TECHNICAL SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION, pp. 622–627.

By: J. Tsan n, F. Rodriguez*, K. Boyer* & C. Lynch n

author keywords: Elementary school; pair programming; collaboration; dialogue
TL;DR: It is found that students regularly accept or reject suggestions without explanation or explicit acknowledgement and that it is often unclear whether they understand the substance of the suggestion, which may inhibit the development of a shared understanding between the partners and limit the value of the collaborative process.

Let's work together: Improving block-based environments by supporting synchronous collaboration

2017 IEEE Blocks and Beyond Workshop (B&B), 53–56.

By: J. Tsan n, F. Rodriguez*, K. Boyer* & C. Lynch n

TL;DR: It is argued that features to support collaboration could significantly enhance existing and new block-based programming environments, and design ideas for supporting synchronous collaboration are suggested. (via Semantic Scholar)
