Infusing Computational Thinking into Middle Grade Science Classrooms: Lessons Learned

WIPSCE'18: PROCEEDINGS OF THE 13TH WORKSHOP IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY COMPUTING EDUCATION, pp. 109–114.

By: V. Catete n, N. Lytle n, Y. Dong n, D. Boulden n, B. Akram n, J. Houchins n, T. Barnes n, E. Wiebe n ...

Contributors: V. Cateté n, N. Lytle n, Y. Dong n, D. Boulden n, B. Akram n, J. Houchins n, T. Barnes n, E. Wiebe n ...

author keywords: Professional Development; STEM plus C; Computational Thinking
TL;DR: Initial lessons learned while conducting design-based implementation research on integrating computational thinking into middle school science classes are presented and case studies suggest that several factors including teacher engagement, teacher attitudes, student prior experience with CS/CT, and curriculum design can all impact student engagement in integrated science-CT lessons.

Evaluation of a Template-based Puzzle Generator for an Educational Programming Game

PROCEEDINGS OF THE 12TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF DIGITAL GAMES (FDG'17).

By: Y. Dong n & T. Barnes n

author keywords: Educational games; puzzle generation; template-based; procedural content generation
TL;DR: It is shown that the template-based, automatic puzzle generator can generate puzzles with expert-designed educational goals while saving experts more than 80% of creation time, and these puzzles exhibit structural and visual novelty compared to expert-created puzzles. (via Semantic Scholar)
