Improving Computer Science Education examines suitable theoretical frameworks for conceptualizing teaching and learning computer science.  This highly useful book provides numerous examples of practical, "real world" applications of major computer science information topics, such as:

• Spreadsheets
• Databases
• Programming

Each chapter concludes with a section that summarzies recommendations for teacher professional development.  Traditionally, computer science education has been skills-focused and disconnected from the reality students face after they leave the classroom.  Improving Computer Science Education makes the subject matter useful and meaningful by connecting it explicitly to students' everyday lives.
