Abstract

Computer coding can be implemented at the elementary level in order to positively affect student engagement. This review examines the effects of computer coding on student engagement, collaboration, and student achievement in an elementary school setting. Peer-reviewed research studies published between 2012-2019 were selected for analysis. The reviewed research indicates that computer coding can have a positive effect on student attitudes and engagement. Reviewed research also indicates that collaboration can boost problem-solving skills. Lastly, computer coding lessons can show positive growth in student achievement. Further research into computer coding curriculums and implementation recommendations are discussed.
