Abstract


In this paper we present a teaching framework that extends the traditional problem solving method in computer science education in order to increase student motivation. It replaces problems by so-called challenges and in particular emphasizes the learning situation and inspiration of the students. Furthermore it combines several pedagogical principles and applies them in a process of how students learn in a motivating and self-regulated way. In order to justify the necessity of a new concept, problems in the traditional problem solving approaches in general high school education are highlighted. Implications from research addressing similar issues are summarized. In order for addressing students' motivation changes are necessary; challenges can provide a basis to start from. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
