Activité: Types de discours ou de présentationPrésentation orale


In previous literature, several authors have recommended teaching
concurrent programming, as the current evolution of IT involves
concurrency. However, in order to teach concurrent programming
properly, in a constructivist educational learning framework, we
need to know the preconceptions students have regarding it. In this
paper, we report on the results found from data collected through
a questionnaire submitted in secondary schools to 101 students
aged from 12 to 15. We detail the preconceptions of concurrent
programming we extracted from the questionnaire answers and
formulate recommendations toward creating a course teaching
concurrent programming.
