Abstract

This basic interpretive qualitative study investigated four students’ debugging behaviors in Zoombinis, a game-based computational thinking (CT) environment. Analysis involved deductive coding of students’ debugging behaviors using videos of students’ computer screens. The findings revealed a range of debugging behaviors and strategies. Findings also indicated that students could articulate an intermediate understanding of debugging as related to the debugging LT [7].
