Abstract

Perspectives and Visions of Computer Science Education in Primary and Secondary (K-12) Schools ¨ ¨ PETER HUBWIESER, Technische Universitat Munchen, Germany MICHAL ARMONI, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel MICHAIL N. GIANNAKOS, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway ¨ ROLAND T.

The goal of this special issue is to offer a publication platform for soundly based in-depth experiences that have been made around the world with concepts, approaches, or initiatives that aim at supporting this shift. For this purpose, the article format was kept as large as possible, enabling the authors to explain many facets of their concepts and experiences in detail.
