|Topic:||Novice Object Design: Challenges and Solutions
|Date:||March 31th 2008, 11:30AM|
|Place:||John Mulcahy Hall, Room 112|
With the introduction of objects into programming courses, novices experience difficulties with problem solving due to spending more time understanding objects and their usage. As a result, novice programmers have less focus on problem solving and analysis of algorithms at an early stage of programming. The Plan-Object Paradigm (Plan Oriented Objects) is a learning paradigm representing the conceptualization and design stage of objects. Plans are used to define objects, their relationships, and integration into a program. The goal is to increase novice's ability to design and implement objects, as well as incorporate objects into problem solving. By setting a relationship between plans and objects, the Plan-Object Paradigm also presents a solution to the Object-First vs. Procedure-First debate.
