Overall goals of the project:

  • Propose a methodology to teach Computer Programming and Algorithms that combines problem-based learning and the use of tablet PCs
  • Migrate the majority of courses on Computer Programming and Algorithms taught by the Institute to the new methodology
  • Evaluate the impact of the new methodology on teaching and learning practices
  • Evaluate the relative impacts of PBL and tablet PCs on the overall outcomes of the project
  • Develop a set of course materials that can be reused in order to facilitate replication of the experience
