ALICE tea party - An alternative or supplementary approach to introductory object-oriented, event-driven programming
Proceedings of the Information Systems Education Conference, ISECON
This workshop introduces ALICE as an alternative or supplement to traditional introductory programming courses. ALICE is a 3D programming environment developed at Carnegie Mellon University and funded by the National Science Foundation. ALICE is designed to facilitate learning object-oriented, event-driven programming by drawing on our student's immersion in graphically rich media through animation and games. Evaluations have demonstrated that subsequent to studying ALICE, (1) students chances of succeeding in programming courses increases, (2) attraction and retention of women and minorities increases, and (3) student enthusiasm for computing as a major increases. © 2006 EDSIG.
