Abstract

PCF4 // This paper describes a study conducted in two phases which evaluated the effectiveness of a cognitive apprenticeship-based learning environment, CABLE in the teaching of computer programming. The pedagogical model, CABLE employs a combination of practices such as directive support, cognitive apprenticeship and collaborative learning. The study also evaluated the effectiveness of the online learning environment used as part of the CABLE implementation, which is the main subject of this paper. The results of both phases showed that there were no significant differences in attitudes of the students in both the CABLE and non-CABLE programs. Furthermore, students in the CABLE program reported very positive evaluations of the online elements of the CABLE environment. // Paper ID 376
