  4. 4. He[d]uristics - Heuristics for designing object oriented examples for novices

    Author : Marie Nordström; Jürgen Börstler; Kathryn Sanders; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Examples; Object orientation; heuristics; Computer science; Datavetenskap; computer and systems sciences; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : The use of examples is known to be important in learning, they should be “exemplary” and function as role-models. Teaching and learning problem solving and programming in the object oriented paradigm is recognised as difficult. Object orientation is designed to handle complexity and large systems, and not with education in focus. READ MORE
