Educational Technology Faculty Publications and Presentations

Undergraduate research opportunities have expanded from elite universities in the United States to universities and learning institutions of all ranks and sizes. Research studies have showed some positive outcomes of the research experience for undergraduates (REU), such as enhanced research skills and competencies. However, with the widespread implementation of REU programs across the country, there are some serious and challenging issues, such as fierce competition among students for limited participation opportunities and a overlooking of underrepresented students’ needs. This study reported a nine-week REU Site program in cybersecurity designed for underrepresented students (women and minorities) and participants from institutions with ...


The Effects Of Pair-Programming In A High School Introductory Computer Science Class, Ken Manship Dec 2017

The Effects Of Pair-Programming In A High School Introductory Computer Science Class, Ken Manship

Boise State University Theses and Dissertations

The following describes my research into pair-programming in a high school introductory computer science class. Research exists that shows the benefits of pair-programming in industry and post-secondary education. For example, in industry, well respected programmers often prefer pair-programming to a more individual approach and often produce better solutions. Furthermore, in post-secondary education, students show higher academic achievement and rely less on staff and instructors when paired with another student. There is not much research that investigates pair-programming in high school.

From January 2017 to March 2017 I explored the effect of pair-programming on my Exploring Computer Science class at Ridgevue ...
