Tiivistelmä

Programming is one of the key assets in the modern society. In addition
to teaching programming to future programmers, it has become more and
more important to teach it alongside computational thinking to all
students. We designed and implemented a programming course aimed for
teacher students at our university. The goal of the course was to teach
programming, computational thinking and the methods and tools used in
programming education. The course was divided into two parts: first, the
students were taught basic programming skills by utilizing
tutorial-based learning with automatically assessed electronic exercises
and play-based programming tasks. In the second part, the students
utilized the acquired skills by teaching programming integrated into
mathematics to children at elementary school level. The students worked
really hard throughout the course, completing more than 90 % of all
tasks in average. Moreover, the feedback from the tutorial sessions and
the practice lessons at schools was mainly positive.
