- Title: Integrating Parson’s Programming Puzzles into a Game-Based Mobile Learning Application
- Summary: This study focuses on the development of a mobile application, which integrates puzzle-based Parson’s programming exercises into the Ayo board game with the aim of facilitating the teaching and learning of programming. In each round of the game, the learners will solve a Parson’s puzzle, which consist of small programming tasks where students are required to build programs by drag and drop, selection, indenting and ordering code fragments.
