JQUERY MOBILE AS A TEXT-BASED INTRODUCTORY EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE

Y. Jeon, T. Kim

Korea National University of Educatoin (KOREA, REPUBLIC OF)
With the growing interest in CT (Computational Thinking) and coding education worldwide, various discussions have been raised that there is a need to practice the coding education to K-12 especially from an elementary school. Accordingly, several block-based educational programming languages have been developed such as Scratch, App inventor, code.org and so on for introducing coding education, and various related experimental studies have been carried out.

These block-based programming languages are very useful and convenient, and it has the advantage of being able to help students understand the logic and control structure at the initial programming stage. However, if the blocks increased, there are such inconveniences that readability becomes worse, and therefore the debugging process can be more difficult. In addition, the block-based programming languages are confined in a particular web page or system, so there is shortcoming in the transition to the practical programs.

In this study, to address these concerns, we suggest a text-based introductory educational programming language, that is, JQuery Mobile based on the mobile Web browser on smart devices, and proposed the benefits and differences compared to the block-based languages in instructional class situations.
