Eight experienced Chinese language arts teachers from a typical junior high school in Taiwan participated in this study to discuss the potential uses of information and communications technologies (ICT) in Chinese language arts instruction. After...
Computers & Education Vol. 28, No. 1 (1997) pp. 55–64
In this paper we present two software packages, SimLIST and SimRECUR, that are designed for use in the closed-lab settings. SimLIST is for teaching concepts about the linked-list data structure, and SimRECUR for recursion. Both SimLIST and SimRECUR...
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 28, No. 1 (January 2009) pp. 71–89
In this study half of 52 sixth graders learned to program in MSWLogo and the other half in Drape. An analysis of students' test scores revealed that Drape (an iconic language) seemed to have a steeper learning curve than MSWLogo (a textual language)....
