Abstract

Teachers have used various approaches and tools to introduce computing concepts in motivating contexts. In this article, we review contextualized programming education in general as well as a form of contextualization, media computing, in particular. From a review of the literature, we formulate: 1) A broad-brush overview of the components of contextualized programming education, focusing especially on technological tools; 2) a classification of tools for media computation; and 3) a list of the operations on multimedia that feature in media computation courses. These results can help teachers and educational technologists who are interested in learning about contextualized programming education, building new tools, and positioning their work in relation to the literature.
