This paper attempts to explore a new method to improve the teaching of computer programming for beginners at tertiary level. It begins with a change of approach to teaching and then to a mix of basic theory and practice. It then finds a core language, which simplified the scope of programme design and implementation. Dynamic visualisation technique was used as a supplementary tool in programme logic design, debugging and testing with desk-check, which helps novices understand their programme… CONTINUE READING
