Teaching NotesJeroo is being used for three types of courses in secondary schools, colleges, and universities
Using Jeroo in a CS1-Level CourseA common strategy is to use Jeroo for the first three or four weeks of the course then switch to the primary language for the remainder of the course. With this approach, Jeroo loses its some of its value because there are often several weeks between the time a topic is covered in Jeroo and the time it is revisited in the primary language.
We favor an approach that interweaves Jeroo and instruction in the primary language. We have found that students have no trouble switching back and forth between programming environments. A suggested outline appears below.
