This learning object seeks to engage the learner through attractive use of visualisation. As the subject is 'repetition' this is illustrated by using repeated actions to move an object across a screen. Redundancy is built in to help weaker students, but this may be bypassed. 'Scaffolding' is used near the end of the object to enable the learner to engage in building the programming construct in a safe supportive environment. This takes the form of building the code by selecting from code fragmen
Arrays in Java (Arrays)
Abstraction is a significant problem in learning to program. The learner has to relate the surface code to the operations in the memory of the computer. Visualisation of an ?array? is used here to help learners to form a mental concept that enables them to make sense of the surface code. A play-like drag and drop 'exercise' is used near the end to get the learner to actively test their understanding.

The President’s Lecture Series was established by President Shirley M. Tilghman in the fall of 2001 to give Princeton’s faculty an opportunity to learn about the work of their colleagues in other disciplines and to share their research with the University community.
