Integrating High Level Programming Languages For Teaching Business Application Development
Over the last thirty years, the methodology for teaching computer programming has changed. Previously implemented procedures teaching one computer programming language has moved towards the educating of students with a variety of computer languages. During this same period of time, we also have seen the business environment move towards the usage of a variety of computer programming languages. However, the graduating student population is not achieving the same knowledge when one computer language is implemented compared to using several application development tools. The focus of this paper will be to compare the two methodologies that have been used as the instructional tool for educating students in the discipline of computer programming. Also, this paper will recommend an alternative teaching procedure in which computer application development can be accomplished in the classroom environment.
