Apprendre la programmation par l'exemple : méthode et système

Abstract : Although programs take now a greater importance of programs as analysis or measurement tools in science (physics, chemistry, biology ... in this case bioinformatics has even become a topic in itself), introductory programming courses are still known to be difficult for students. Kaasboll recently reports that their rate of drop out and failure vary from 25% to 80% worldwide. We present a typology of the difficulties in learning programming, and explore the pedagogical issues of an alternative programming paradigm, Programming by Example. Finally we present an innovating Learning Environment for programmers, MELBA (Metaphor-based Environment to Learn the Basics of Algorithmic), and the didactic approach it supports.
