Abstract

This article describes computational pedagogy, an approach to teaching principles of computing aided by modeling and simulation. Besides fostering abstraction skills in students, this approach motivates them to learn programming and supports both the deductive and inductive forms of instruction. Specifically, the article reports how computational pedagogy was implemented in the context of a professional development program for teachers and what impact that professional development program had on STEM teaching and learning in secondary schools.
