The impact of programming education on positive development of youth in higher education

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers

Abstract

Positive youth programming development (PYPD) was conceptualized from a “3Cs” perspective, namely programming Confidence, programming Connection, and programming Contribution to investigate the impact of programming education on university students. This study adopted a multi-study design such that PYPD could be examined from different angles. First, study 1 (N = 117) validated a 13-item instrument for measuring students’ PYPD. Study 2 (N = 203) investigated some key factors of programming education for the differences in students’ PYPD. Finally, study 3 (N = 97 after matching) investigated the impact of programming education on the enhancement of students’ PYPD upon course completion.
青少年正向編程發展理論模型(PYPD)提倡「3C」概念,這「3C」分別為:編程自信心(programming Confidence)、編程聯繫(programming Connection),還有編程貢獻(programming Contribution)。此理論模型探究高等教育的編程教育對青少年正向發展的影響。該模型通過三個獨立研究從多角度檢視青少年的正向編程發展。研究一(n = 117)開發並驗證了包含十三條問卷題目的量表以評估學生的正向編程發展。研究二(n = 203)探索了一些編程教育的關鍵因素及學生於正向編程發展之中的差異。最後,研究三(匹配後 n = 97)分析了編程教育對學生完成該課程後正向成長的影響。 Copyright © 2018 Learning & Teaching Expo.
