Programming in elementary school and development of students' algorithmic thinking
Milichovská, Lucie ; Štípek, Jiří (advisor) ; Vaňková, Petra (referee)
This thesis is aimed at development of algorithmic thinking and teaching programming in elementary school. Possible options on how to learn to program are outlined for the students. It goes without saying that each student will not be a programmer, but fundamentals of algorithmic thinking are beneficial to every member of society. Learning programming languages and tools offer many benefits for students. They are visually interesting, relatively simple, intuitive and funny for students. At the same time, it develops their creativity. And thanks to these programming languages and tools, these features can be explored from an early age. The practical part is focused on children's programming language Scratch, which is one of the tools for use in teaching. There were 12 tasks created for pupils in the 4th - 6th grade of elementary school, that serve to develop their algorithmic thinking. The tasks have increasing difficulty, pupils do not need any previous experience with the programming language Scratch. All tasks were tested by a group of pupils of the given age category as a part of leisure activities

The diploma thesis maps interactive teaching in high school as a actual phenomenon. The aim of the thesis is to understand the current situation within the interactive teaching and to introduce possibilities how to realize the teaching with the elements of interactivity. The theoretical part describes various views of interactivity and its wildcards. This results in the characteristic elements of interactive teaching and the benefits that interactive teaching brings. The thesis also introduces current digital technologies that can be used in school education. It specifies what the specific technologies can be used for, what their advantages and disadvantages are. In the empirical part, the thesis examines one secondary school in Prague Hostivař for a closer understanding of the current situation of interactive teaching. This is done by using a questionnaire survey. The part of the empirical part is the design and implementation of teaching activities using interactivity, which are based on the theoretical basis and information found by the research. The activities are carried out directly in the classroom and subsequently evaluated by the pupils themselves. Subsequently, the activities are evaluated by the usability within the classroom, their versatility of use and the risks that they may face in...
Unplugged activities for development of computational thinking in the context of non-formal education
Lhoťanová, Anna ; Štípek, Jiří (advisor) ; Vaňková, Petra (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the development of computational and algorithmic thinking in a non-formal education setting, specifically in the conditions of a summer camp activity, which is one of the forms of non-formal education. The thesis verifies by the pedagogical experiment whether it is possible to develop the computational thinking of camp participants, when unplugged activities are included in the programme content. The theoretical part defines the concepts of computational and algorithmic thinking. It also includes property of unplugged methodology. The practical part evaluates the pedagogical field experiment for which 3 sets of unplugged activities and 2 sets of test tools were created. The experiment took place during two summer camp for children from 9 to 18 years old, who were divided into two age groups for testing purposes. In pursuance of the experiment it was found out that the conditions of summer camp activity allow the inclusion of unplugged activities, which represent a method enabling the development of the computational thinking of the camp participants. Though it emerged that these activities have a bearing only on the participants who are more active during these activities and who are more interested in them. KEYWORDS unplugged activities, computational thinking,...
The Development of Algorithmic Thinking among the Pupils of Lower Secondary Schools
Fiala, Jan ; Vaňková, Petra (advisor) ; Novák, Jaroslav (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the development of algorithmic thinking among the lower-secondary students as one of their digital competences. It is based on the principle of algorithmic thinking related to the concept of computational thinking and it searches for the ways how to develop it in pupils. The theoretical part is supported by Skinner's concept of programmed learning and with the help of gamification proposes the research based on the students' observation in one school year in which the competence is developed. The raised issue is solved by setting a complex set of teaching materials and learning activities (both in the digital environment and unplugged activities) and their partial transfer into the teaching to a virtual, algorithmic environment of the specially designed application called Prográmko. The goal of the thesis is the analysis of the possibilities of how to include the gamification and the programmed learning into the practice of the development of algorithmic thinking taught at the lower-secondary schools. The research also evaluates the applicability of the application Prográmko and the proposed set of materials provided with methodological guidelines in the practice.

Examining the formation of ideas and learning about some programming concepts in the primary school
Čuma, Radek ; Černochová, Miroslava (advisor) ; Vaňková, Petra (referee)
This diploma thesis maps pupils' understanding about a functional principle of using commands along with testing conditions (IF, IF - THEN, REPEAT - UNTIL, etc.) when creating algorithms. The main aim of the thesis is to design and implement a set of lessons and a teaching approach based on a theory about learning of algorithmic concepts at primary education for pupils (aged in 9-11) with the intention of verifying a functionality of designed teaching procedures and their possible impacts on pupils' understanding. Data was collected through continuous monitoring of pupils' behavioural characteristics, progress and solution of chosen tasks, video recordings of task solving within the suggested unplugged activities, using a virtual tool for monitoring of a pupils' progress, audio recordings of interview with pupils, and photographs capturing a creation of own blocks of commands set up by a transcription from pupils' mother language into a machine language (programming language) have all been used for a verification process of the designed teaching approach. By combining the acquired data sets, adjustments of these procedures have been made in order to eliminate the most frequent problems that pupils have encountered during teaching. The case study findings revealed that it is important for...
