EXP: Macro Data for Micro Learning: Developing FUN! for Automated Assessment of Computational Thinking in Scratch

PIs: Deborah Fields, Taylor Martin Utah State University Award Details This Cyberlearning: Transforming Education Exploration Project is designed to advance understanding of how to personalize feedback and advice to learners as they engage in exploratory and creative activities in constructionist technology-enhanced learning environments. During such activities, learners often engage in programming (using, e.g., Scratch, Alice) […]

EXP: CTSiM: Fostering Computational Thinking in Middle Schools through Scientific Modeling and Simulation

PIs: Gautam Biswas, Douglas Clark, Pratim Sengupta Vanderbilt University Award Details This project’s investigation is at the nexus between scientific thinking, computational thinking, modeling as an investigative endeavor, and visual programming tools. The PIs are infusing middle-school science with efforts to promote computational thinking, doing that through making modeling a more significant part of science […]
