Object-Oriented Programming at Upper Secondary School for Advanced Students
There are powerful computers and new operating systems at secondary schools but we observe that many teachers teach programming in old programming environments such as Borland Pascal for DOS. Imagine Logo or Delphi are relatively new programming environments in comparison to DOS based environments. They bring nice programming paradigms as object-oriented programming, event-driven programming and the idea of constructing application by direct manipulation with components. We believe that more advanced students would like to learn and use these new features. Therefore we run educational research and tried to answer questions like “is it possible to teach basics of programming in object-oriented programming”, “are students of secondary school prepared and willing to learn object-oriented programming” or “can object-oriented programming be useful for them”?
