The traditional lecture-based approach to introductory computer science focuses on mastery of programming language syntax. As a result, other skills such as problem solving and independent learning are underdeveloped, particularly in students with no previous programming background. This paper presents alternative teaching methods which promote student-centered learning and address different learning styles. The paper also proposes an inter-school collaboration framework for introductory computer science teachers.

Story about myself
You'll always get this mix of people. Some people are new to programming; they've never done it before, and it takes them a while to learn how to give instructions with the precision we need in computer science. Other people have programmed in several other languages and they pick up the lessons quickly.
