Purpose and sources
Computer programming is most often taught as a kind of apprenticeship: teachers lecture about the programming language constructs and library functions, then students spend many hours practicing those constructs and functions. This approach is demanding in terms of student time and frustration, and has a high cognitive load.
Starting in 2003, a team of computing education researchers began to teach non-technical majors programming using a contextualized approach called “Media Computation,” developing the curriculum with a design-based research approach. The team used assessm ... (continued)
