Key Learning Concepts for the New Computing Curriculum in Taiwan Secondary Schools-- A Delphi Survey
The new computing curriculum for Taiwan secondary schools is scheduled to launch in 2018. To provide teachers with great flexibility, the curriculum only outlines themes and topics for students to learn, without further details on key concepts to be covered. It will certainly be a challenge to the textbooks writers and the computing teachers to decide which concepts to teach and which to skip. This study intends to give suggestions for the "key learning concepts" to be included in the curriculum. The Delphi technique was employed to collect different views and derive consensus from a panel of twenty-one computer science education experts, including computing teachers in schools and professors in universities. The first draft of Delphi survey questionnaire consists of six themes (programming, algorithms, data representation, processing and analysis, IT applications, IT and human society) and 117 learning concepts developed from the computing curriculum. After three-rounds of survey, the expert panel derived 92 key learning concepts. Concepts which are not yet get consensus from the experts had been examined and provided recommendations for when included in learning. The results serve as useful references for computing teachers and textbook authors when implementing the new curriculum.
