AnnAnn - a Tool to Scaffold Learning about Programs

Carr, LA, Davis, HC and White, SA (2004) AnnAnn - a Tool to Scaffold Learning about Programs At LTSN-ICS Fifth Annual Conference, United Kingdom.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


It is difficult for a student to learn about programs and to understand the rational that went into the development of the parts that led to the whole. Tools for explaining this essentially dynamic process are limited and typically static in nature. This paper presents AnnAnn, an animated code annotator which makes it possible to present the development of code to large groups or for self study. The educational benefits of this approach are examined.
