Alternative teaching methods for introductory computer science

| -Uncategorized

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.
