Evaluating the Effectiveness of Student Group Work for Mobile Application Development Learning
Programming is often a challenge to teach to technology degree students but, it is even more challenging to teach programming to a mix of interdisciplinary students. As such, instructors strive to improve their lessons and methods to encompass a broad range of students, including those students who never took a programming course. In an attempt to improve student learning and increase student learning outcomes within an applications/programming course, group work was examined. Specifically, this study was conducted to understand students’ perceptions regarding the effectiveness of the student’s group/team experience and learning outcomes when developing a mobile application. Results were favorable towards using group work for mobile application development learning, productivity, enjoyment and confidence of quality.
