Abstract

The dramatically changing availability and sharing of information online has created new opportunities for informal, discretionary learning, particularly for teenagers. This, along with the rise in online gaming across all ages and genders give rise to questions about how these resources can be used effectively for learning. In my work, I will investigate how social features such as achievement broadcasting, teamwork, and puzzle sharing in an online game can sustainably engage teens and their friends in social learning of programming concepts.
