2009 (English)In: ITiCSE 2009: proceeding of the 2009 ACM SIGSE annual conference on innovation and technology in computer science education / [ed] Patrick Brézillon, Ingrid Russell, Jean-Marc Labat, ACM Digital Library, 2009, 181-185 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
We examine the transformations experienced by students during their study of computing. These transformations led to changes in the students' perceptions of computer science, in their sense of identity as computer scientists, their behavior and their confidence. The changes are caused by learning or using particular concepts, and often associated with writing computer programs, learning new programming languages, or interacting with peers.
