Abstract: Research has shown computer programming as a means of enhancing computational thinking. While a number of pedagogical frameworks have been developed for teaching programming the difficult and demanding nature of algorithms and programming concepts requires motivational preconditions that would drive young students to engagement. In particular, since collaboration stimulates learning and current needs also require working remotely greater emphasis should be given to introductive blended contexts. Therefore, we tried to focus on this perspective of teaching programming fundamentals to primary school students through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), implementing a flipped classroom. This paper proposes a framework, on ...
